Legacy’s IOP Ohio Option

What Does IOP Stand For?

Contrary to popular belief, the desire to abuse a substance does not magically disappear once a certain number of treatment hours have been reached. Rather, treating addiction is something that requires consistent thought and consideration to manage. For those that have completed residential treatment or a partial hospitalization program, Legacy Healing Center Cincinnati offers an IOP in Ohio that will give participants the ability to make the most of their rehabilitation experience while maintaining a sense of flexibility. Read on to learn more about how you can get this expert care and adjust back to everyday life.

IOP is an acronym that stands for the phrase “Intensive Outpatient Program.” Those that undergo this program likely still require decently intense addiction treatment without needing 24-hour care. This flexibility allows them to begin readjusting to their regular routines while working to uphold the lessons and objectives obtained in rehab.

Some objectives of our Intensive outpatient rehab program include:

  • – Achieving and maintaining sobriety from alcohol and/or drugs
  • – Encouragement of patients to learn to take accountability for their own actions
  • – Addressing psychosocial obstacles, including addressing probation requirements, securing housing and employment, and similar
  • – Demonstrating beneficial behavioral changes
  • – Fostering a sense of agency and independence in the patient
  • – Picking up hobbies that support your newfound sobriety.

The flexibility of our IOP in Ohio allows for a far more relaxed schedule than its more intense counterparts. The transition from rehab to everyday life can seem daunting, especially if that person has previously relied on a substance to calm their troubling thoughts. Our intensive outpatient program allows these patients to continue fostering their ability to function in sobriety while regaining the footing they may have lost in the midst of active addiction. 

How Long Is IOP?

Typically, our Ohio IOP will consist of at least 9 hours of clinical treatment in the span of 3 to 5 days. The exact length of treatment, however, will ultimately depend on the unique needs of each patient. Their schedule outside of rehab will also be considered.

The entire program should last about 90 days, with as few as 6 hours a week to as many as 30 hours of treatment being dedicated to their care. Being that this program is often used as a transitional step in recovery, a patient should likely have already undergone some other form of prerequisite care, like our medically monitored detox

Although 90 days is the common standard of an IOP, the duration will vary depending on the person’s unique needs, personal support systems, and overall mental wellness. For instance, someone who is excelling in their therapy sessions will need less intensive care than someone who either continues to relapse or is resistant to recovery altogether. We understand that addiction is an intensely personal experience, which is why we seek to tailor the journey to sobriety to the individual needs of each unique patient.

Benefits of Intensive Outpatient Therapy

This program is designed to provide adaptable treatment services that allow you to maintain your day-to-day routine.

Other advantages to IOP care include:

  • – It is a more affordable alternative to residential treatment
  • – High-intensity programs have a greater rate of success than other approaches
  • – There is an opportunity to develop a community-based support system
  • – Better access to treatment in case you experience a relapse
  • – Greater intrinsic rewards due to individual agency of one’s own recovery process
  • – More privacy overall than inpatient treatment
  • – Peer groups like alcoholics anonymous are available

Our IOP in Ohio will give you the ability to reacclimate to your everyday life with the invaluable lessons of sobriety and recovery at your fingertips.
