Recovery is not a one-size-fits-all journey. It requires flexible options that allow clients to receive the appropriate care for their needs. While some service members will need 24-hour supervision and clinical monitoring, others may not require such intense programming. These individuals are instead encouraged to consider our IOP addiction treatment options, which provide more flexibility while allowing clients to address what continues to trouble them. Learn more about this program with Banyan’s military rehab center. 

What Is an Intensive Outpatient Program? 

An intensive outpatient program, or IOP, refers to a form of treatment that can address issues like addiction and mental illness without the need for medically monitored detox or full-time care. IOP treatment focuses on applying the structure of our partial hospitalization program (PHP) to a structure that patients can adhere to on their own. To do this, we provide access to the same effective therapy methods but in a less intense environment.  

This flexibility allows clients to pursue or restart employment, attend any necessary recovery or 12-step programs, and reestablish relationships with loved ones that may have been negatively affected. It is a fantastic option for those who are simply unable to pause their daily commitments, like heads of a household or those with professional obligations.  

Returning home from a drug and alcohol inpatient program can be an overwhelming transition for many veterans. IOP services makes it possible for these service members to continue working on their addiction and previous traumas, while settling into their everyday routines. This transition allows for a better chance of recovery. 

The Importance of Maintaining Sobriety 

A common misconception about addiction recovery is that the work concludes when your programming does. This could not be farther from the truth. The reality is that the real work starts when you go back home, where many triggers can still remain. Relapse prevention is a crucial part of the process and something that many people tend to forget when placed in tempting situations. It is what makes an IOP rehab program so beneficial as it allows patients to maintain the lessons they learned in full-time treatment during everyday life. 

It is also worth noting that jumping from a full-time rehab program to complete independence can be overwhelming for some. That is why IOP addiction treatment may be used in conjunction with one of our residential programs in order to make the transition back to everyday life more seamless. A safe home environment is crucial, and it is suggested that anyone whose home is not secure seek out other living arrangements until a more stable mindset is achieved. 

IOP Military and Veterans Recovery Program

For those who have served or continue to serve our country, our active-duty military rehab program is equipped with a variety of care levels that ensure each of our clients receives the appropriate care for their needs. If someone is unable to pause their obligations, IOP treatment is a fantastic option to get them the attention they need and have access to trauma clinicians, while allowing them to maintain their commitments.  

You do not have to continue to struggle for fear of losing yourself in the process. In actuality, it is more likely that you will get to discover incredible parts of yourself that have been buried under the weight of substance abuse. Family services are also available to aid you in rebuilding important relationships that have been affected by your addiction.
