Some people who have issues with addiction don’t like the idea of admitting themselves to inpatient treatment. Individuals who complete an inpatient stay often need additional post-recovery support. An intensive outpatient program serves both groups and helps them learn how to continue managing their addiction in the real world. Intensive outpatient treatment programs help individuals who need more flexibility in their addiction treatment schedule. Learn more about how an IOP may be a solution for you or a loved one by reaching out to Midwest Recovery Center.
How Can an Intensive Outpatient Program Help?
If you’re dealing with a more severe addiction or have a co-occurring disorder, you may need more in-depth help than you receive with regular outpatient treatment. It can be a struggle for individuals to maintain their sobriety while dealing with challenges they face at home, school, or work. Even if you’ve gone through inpatient treatment, leaving that cocoon of protection to go back to everyday life can be a shock.
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) offers a full continuum of care, similar to what people receive by attending an inpatient program. You follow a set schedule of therapy services each day and while remaining in your home residence. That gives you more control that allows you to keep working or attending to other responsibilities.
What are the Benefits of an Intensive Outpatient Program?
In addition to the chance to remain at home instead of staying in an inpatient facility, intensive outpatient programs offer benefits like:
- Living in a less controlled environment while receiving addiction treatment
- Getting the chance to remain in constant contact with friends and family
- Having the ability to continue going to school or staying employed
- Having an opportunity for real-time application of skills learned in intensive outpatient treatment
- Adding to your support network

How Does Intensive Outpatient Treatment Work?
An intensive outpatient program benefits people who need further treatment for their addiction issues. You should consult with a doctor or addiction specialist to determine if an intensive outpatient treatment program is the best place to treat your addiction problems.
Midwest Recovery Center has experience helping people dealing with a wide range of addictions. Our intensive outpatient programs can accommodate people dealing with alcohol addiction, prescription drug addiction, and heroin addiction.
We offer medication-assisted treatment to help you manage cravings and other symptoms that come with getting over an addiction. You get the opportunity to continue treatment alongside others going through a similar experience.
