Our intensive outpatient programs (IOP) are designed to help teens and pre-teens abstain from drugs or alcohol and change their attitude towards substance use.
Who Benefits from Intensive Outpatient Treatment?
If your teen’s substance use has gotten to the point where they are no longer able to abstain from drugs or alcohol, your child might benefit from our teen IOP. This program can act as an alternative to residential therapy, or as a less restrictive option for a teen who has completed a residential rehabilitation program. We are able to accommodate children as young as 12 in our IOP.
We use our clinical screenings and evaluations to determine what type of program is the best fit for each individual and focus on giving our clients the best chance of being successful in treatment.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment Methods
Group sessions are at the core of our treatment. Intensive outpatient groups, on average, consist of about eight members, allowing group members to build a community bond and relate to each other. The small group sizes also promote individualized attention for each client.
Our IOP sessions teach the necessary skills to navigate young adulthood while recovering from addiction. Your teen will build close bonds with their peers in the treatment program who are going through the same life stages while struggling with a substance use disorder.
We utilize a variety of treatment methods, including:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy
- Motivational Interviewing
- Group Processing
- Skill-building exercises
We recognize the importance of a teen’s family in addiction recovery and require family to be involved in treatment. One day of programming each week is geared towards this. Topics include family problem solving, addiction in the family, and more. Teens are encouraged to bring a close family member to group on these days.
We also provide additional counseling to family members and loved ones. If you currently have a teen in treatment at Rehab After Work, you can call us at (610) 644-6464 to schedule individual or family counseling sessions.
Intensive Outpatient Program Length
Group sessions are held 4 days per week for 2 hours, 15 minutes each session. Each individual’s recovery journey looks different, and your teen’s length of stay in the program depends on their individual treatment progress.
