Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) offer more than 9 hours a week of counseling or other types of recovery services, and should meet at least three times a week. Regular outpatient programs meet for fewer than 9 hours a week. Outpatient programs can also taper off in intensity as you begin to build more recovery supports on your own.
Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs
Drug and alcohol detox programs provide medical supervision and support to overcome withdrawal symptoms. Without medical assistance, withdrawal symptoms can be severe and even endanger your health.
Detox programs aren’t designed to help you overcome long-term social, behavioral, and psychological concerns that are part of substance use disorders. They help you to safely stop using drugs and/or alcohol, manage acute withdrawal, and move to the next step in recovery.
For people who need to live in a completely sober environment with 24-hour support, residential treatment programs offer a solution. Starting at 4 weeks, residential treatment programs can last up to several months. After about six months, long-term drug and alcohol treatment is usually referred to as sober living or a transitional program.
Some residential treatment programs are offered in homelike environments, or in facilities that are specifically designed to support recovery. Residential treatment can also offer experiences that contribute to recovery, including meditation, yoga, fitness programs, and art and music programs.
