Intensive Outpatient Program

Learn how to reclaim your life at Transformations by the Gulf Alcohol and Drug Rehab where your alcohol addiction treatment is customized for you to succeed.

Why Choose Outpatient Addiction Treatment?

A substance abuse intensive outpatient program is designed to be a customized approach to rehabilitation. Factors such as an individual’s home and work life are considered when creating a sustainable plan. It starts with focusing on maintaining sobriety and adding therapy sessions to a participant’s schedule. Then the intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment progresses to tackling deeper-rooted issues related to addictive behavior.

This program is a good fit for people seeking substance abuse treatment, as it allows for flexibility in how they approach the personal rehab journey. It can also be the right choice for someone who is just starting to confront an addiction because it integrates the program into each person’s current routine. Our outpatient rehab in Tampa was developed to meet the needs of individuals who either do not need the full-time structure of our Residential or Partial Hospitalization (PHP) programs.

An intensive outpatient program offers the same level of treatment as a residential program without the need to stay at the treatment facility. A person can go to their job or handle other responsibilities before and after participating in treatment. Since intensive outpatient programs use similar levels of care as residential programs, they’re very effective at treating addiction.

You can find relief from your addiction without taking a break from what matters in your life.

How Often Do We Meet?

Those who enroll in outpatient alcohol treatment and Intensive Outpatient Program rehabilitation in St Pete Beach, Florida We have a small client-to-counselor ratio, thus enhancing the individualization of the program. Using evidenced-based treatments augmented by expressive modalities and cognitive-behavioral and motivational enhancement therapies, our clients receive confidential and individualized services designed to meet their specific drug or alcohol treatment needs. Program Enrollment is based on individual treatment needs and typically ranges from 8-16 weeks.

A typical day of treatment will look a little different for each person and the severity of the addiction. During an intensive outpatient program, you typically spend a few days each week attending therapy, often toward the end of the day. You’ll meet with your provider or a group to participate in different therapies after you finish your workday or handle your outside responsibilities.

An intensive outpatient drug and alcohol treatment program may have more of a time commitment than other types of addiction treatment. These intensive programs are for people who need serious intervention but have other responsibilities to take care of, making them unable to stay at a rehab facility for an inpatient program.

As you meet your goals, the time you need to commit to your outpatient program may decrease as you work through underlying conditions or triggers and readjust to daily life.

What Techniques Are Part of Outpatient Therapy?

Intensive outpatient therapy establishes a treatment plan with measurable goals and milestones to measure progress. As someone meets more of their goals, they have fewer responsibilities and time commitments throughout their program. This treatment program may require multiple seasons a few times each week and includes different types of therapies and techniques.

Some of the therapies and techniques we use include:

  • Counseling sessions with different types of therapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT).
  • Group therapy with others who share similar experiences to build a supportive community.
  • Relapse prevention education to help reduce the risk of relapse outside of treatment by identifying and managing triggering situations.
  • Attendance to 12-step or other types of support groups that meet your specific needs.

These therapies help a person address their addiction and get to the root cause to improve their overall well-being. These therapies and techniques work together to give the person the best chance at recovery.
