Who Goes to an Intensive Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment Center?

Someone who would attend an intensive outpatient treatment is wanting the same care as a residential program, but on an outpatient basis. For example, the client may suffer from multiple relapses, but it would be determined they would not need 24-hour care. If this is the case, they would attend treatment daily three to five times per week. There would be a set number of hours needed each week, and this would be determined based on the initial assessment. The person attending an intensive outpatient center, would not be able to fully leave their work, be away from their family or home, and other responsibilities in life. There are numerous benefits with an intensive outpatient program. Some statistics show that around 90% of clients remain sober during a 12-week program for example.

Intensive outpatient centers will do drug testing to help keel clients honest about what is happening outside of treatment. Clients can continue to go to work or school, and practice their recovery skills in real-time. The average intensive outpatient center can do an immediate intake, and unless it is a government-funded program, there are often no wait times. Various counseling and therapy methods are used to help clients through addiction. No two patients are alike, and most programs are tailored to the needs of the client. This will ensure the effectiveness of treatment for each client who goes to an intensive outpatient program.
