What Is Intensive Outpatient Treatment in Prescott, Arizona Like?

While attending an IOP in Arizona, clients continue to live at the Terra Nova residence and attend group and individual therapy for half the day. The rest of the day is spent working or finding a job, going to school, going to 12-step meetings*, or participating in other recovery activities that help prepare for life outside our facility. Our IOP allows patients to begin the move to everyday activities while still receiving treatment, valuable support, and individualized help and attention. Generally, clients spend about 45 days in IOP as they prepare for the transition to aftercare.

* A 12-step meeting is a gathering of individuals who come together to support each other in overcoming addiction, compulsion, serious shortcomings, or traumatic experiences by adhering to 12 guiding principles. You may be familiar with these meetings, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), and Cocaine Anonymous (CMA), among others.

An important component of 12-step meetings is fellowship, which allows individuals to converse and get to know other members of the group. There are open and closed 12-step meetings, with open meetings allowing anyone to attend, while closed meetings are only for individuals who have a desire to stop using drugs or alcohol. During meetings, members do not mention their membership in other 12-step groups to maintain anonymity and confidentiality.

Overall, 12-step meetings provide a supportive environment for individuals who are struggling with addiction or other issues and are seeking guidance and support from others who have gone through similar experiences. 

Benefits of IOP

During an intensive outpatient program in Arizona, our patients continue dealing with many physiological and psychological issues that accompany extended drug use and addiction. The program focuses on: 

  • Developing life skills
  • Learning relapse prevention skills 
  • Managing urges and cravings
  • Understanding brain chemistry
  • Trauma counseling
  • EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) 

IOPs have several benefits that include:

  • Flexibility while providing necessary support to continue healing
  • Maintaining the ability to support family and get help from close family and friends
  • Easy and flexible access to treatment services that let you stay in your day-to-day routine 
  • Allowing clients to actively practice what they learn during treatment in their daily lives can help them develop new coping skills and practice them in real-life scenarios
  • Group therapy and life skills classes for those with substance abuse issues

How Does IOP Differ from Standard Residential Treatment Programs?

IOPs allow clients to actively practice what they learn during treatment in their daily lives, which can help them develop new coping skills and practice them in real-life scenarios. IOPs are designed to help individuals continue their regular, day-to-day lives and still receive a level of care higher than traditional outpatient therapy. Unlike residential treatment services, IOPs allow clients to engage in greater personal responsibilities. Residential treatment programs require clients to put their personal responsibilities on hold, and inpatient services may not offer the level of care needed to sustain recovery. Additionally, IOPs are more private compared to residential facilities.

How IOP Addresses Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS)

Heavy use of certain drugs can cause long-term withdrawal symptoms, including mood disorders and other psychological challenges. While acute physical withdrawal lasts days or weeks at most, these symptoms may linger for months or even years after treatment ends. This condition is known as post-acute withdrawal syndrome, or PAWS.

In order to prepare patients for this reality, our IOP encourages active participation in 12-step and other long-term recovery programs. IOP is a powerful tool for the holistic and comprehensive recovery that we want for all our patients. As clients successfully progress from residential treatment through aftercare, they are prepared to live a sober life with as many tools, skills, and resources as we can give them.

Who Should Join An IOP in Prescott, AZ?

To qualify for an intensive outpatient program, you must have a mental health diagnosis from a clinical-level licensed individual, such as those at our IOP addiction treatment center. IOPs address addiction, depression, eating disorders, and more without needing detox or 24-hour supervision. As mentioned, IOPs are a level of mental healthcare between traditional once-weekly therapy and inpatient care, and they are designed for individuals who require a higher level of care than traditional outpatient therapy but do not need the level of care provided by inpatient or residential treatment programs. It is important to note that the specific requirements for IOPs may vary depending on the treatment center or program.

Get Help at an IOP in Prescott with Terra Nova Behavioral Health

Choosing between an intensive outpatient program (IOP) and inpatient rehab in Arizona can be a difficult decision. However, there are several reasons why someone may choose an IOP over residential treatment. One of the main reasons is that IOPs are often a more affordable option than inpatient residential treatment. Residential treatment can raise in price based on the level of luxury. Additionally, IOPs allow individuals to continue working, going to school, and meeting other obligations that would be put on hold while in residential treatment. This can be especially important for individuals who have families or other responsibilities that they cannot put on hold.

Another reason to choose an IOP over residential treatment is that IOPs are just as effective as inpatient programs in supporting long-term abstinence and recovery. IOPs address addiction, depression, eating disorders, and more without needing detox or 24-hour supervision. IOPs are designed for individuals who require a higher level of care than traditional outpatient therapy but do not need the level of care provided by inpatient or residential treatment programs.

IOPs also offer access to group therapy when temptation and trip-ups happen out in the real world. This can be especially helpful for individuals who need support and guidance as they navigate their daily lives. IOPs are a level of mental healthcare between traditional once-weekly therapy and inpatient care.

Choosing an IOP over residential treatment can be a more affordable option, allow individuals to continue working and meeting other obligations, and offer access to group therapy when needed. It is important to note that the decision to choose an IOP over residential treatment should be made in consultation with a healthcare professional and based on the individual’s specific needs and circumstances.
