Intensive Outpatient Program

Addiction treatment in our outpatient rehab program helps patients to work towards their long-term recovery while also maintaining much of their everyday routines. In this program, patients live at home and commute to the facility several times a week for rehabilitation activities. There are different levels of outpatient rehab, and our addiction specialists can assess your situation to determine the ideal treatment option for you.

Outpatient Treatment: What to Expect

In an outpatient drug rehab program, patients are allowed to live at home and undergo rehabilitation during the day. Because outpatient rehab doesn’t provide the same care around the clock that inpatient treatment does, patients must have access to a stable, drug-free living environment and a strong support system. You must be able to find peace and support in your current living situation to succeed in outpatient treatment.

You will have access to medical supervision, one-on-one counseling as well as regular group therapy sessions. You are invited to enjoy the tranquility of our beautiful facility whenever you’re not in session.

Outpatient drug treatment programs usually last at least 1 – 3 months. This is because people who are in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction are the most likely to relapse in the first 1 – 3 months after treatment.

The treatment of substance use disorder is approached from multiple angles and disciplines in our intensive outpatient program. The therapies we offer include:

  • 12-Step Program – One of the main benefits of 12-Step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous is the sense of community. We use the 12 Steps as a tool in our rehabilitation curriculum. We offer 12-Step meetings that allow you to connect with your peers, share your experiences and strength with others and hear stories of recovery.
  • Evidence-Based Therapy – Evidence-based healing modalities are used in our program like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
  • Medication Management – All patients will receive treatment from a psychiatrist who can help to determine whether or not pharmaceutical support is right for you. Closely monitored medication can also be helpful for patients who suffer from co-occurring mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
  • Recreation Therapy – We employ a holistic approach to addiction treatment. We recognize the power that fun has in recovery, and we offer activities like yoga classes and even laser tag. With recreational therapy, patients learn to enjoy activities without substances.

Outpatient Addiction Treatment Levels

There are multiple levels of treatment for outpatient alcohol rehab and outpatient drug rehab at The Recovery Village at Ridgefield. Our addiction specialists can assess your situation to determine which program is best for you.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Our IOP consists of at least nine hours of rehabilitation each week. Patients enrolled in the IOP participate in many of the activities that our residential patients participate in, but they are able to sleep in their own beds at night.

The outpatient programs can also serve as a good tool for patients after they have completed a residential program. They can provide a positive transition from the treatment center into the real world so that you can ensure that you use the tools you have gained to stay sober. Enrolling in an IOP after residential treatment can increase the rates of recovery. Our addiction specialists can sit down with you to formulate an individualized treatment plan.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

The PHP is more intensive that an IOP but not as involved as inpatient or residential treatment. The main difference between the IOP and the PHP is the number of hours spent at the facility. Patients enrolled in a PHP will typically spend about 20 hours per week in the facility.
