An intensive outpatient program is a scheduled treatment plan that you can go through for substance abuse disorder and several other mental health conditions.
As opposed to an inpatient program, you go home at the end of the day and don’t stay overnight or for multiple nights in a facility as you go through the process.
Because you’re not in a facility overnight, an intensive outpatient program doesn’t involve round-the-clock supervision. Therefore, you can engage in your normal day-to-day life, including going to work and engaging in any caretaking responsibilities.
The lack of change in your day-to-day life may make it easier for you to recover and reap all of the benefits of your treatment program. Because of the major changes that take place during the duration of inpatient care, many find it easier to adjust to day-to-day life after taking part in intensive outpatient care.
Intensive outpatient programs may be the preferred option for you if you have a safe home environment without triggers and are aided by supportive individuals in your life. These programs treat emotional and behavioral concerns stemming from:
