Is IOP a Step Down in Recovery or a New Beginning?

Is IOP a Step Down in Recovery or a New Beginning?

If you’re currently examining your different addiction treatment options, you may be wondering if an IOP (intensive outpatient program) could be the right fit for you. If you’re hesitant to enter an IOP, you’re not alone. Many people are afraid or worried about what enrolling in this type of program will mean for them.

Understanding IOPs

IOPs can be extremely beneficial for individual recovery. Unfortunately, some people view enrolling in this type of program as “taking a step back.” However, this isn’t the case. Instead, entering an IOP is an opportunity for a fresh start and a new beginning.

One’s perspective is an important thing when it comes to recovery. How you view your journey can impact your sobriety. Because of this, changing the IOP narrative to a positive one can be extremely helpful.

Many people find that their IOP was the key to their sobriety. When you find the right program, you’ll have access to a dedicated staff that understands how to support you in a comprehensive way. It’s important to examine a few different options so that you can find the program that makes the most sense for you. When evaluating programs, don’t be afraid to ask questions and get the answers you need to make an informed decision. Starting an IOP can be overwhelming at first. However, it’s a decision that’s worth making because it will improve your life.

Avalon Malibu

At Avalon Malibu, one of our programs is an IOP. Our IOP program is an excellent opportunity for individuals who are ready to improve their mental health and choose ongoing sobriety.

In our IOP, we emphasize aftercare planning. We do this so that our clients feel supported in the transition from our services to their daily lives. Because we talk about aftercare planning from the beginning, our clients are very informed about and involved in the process. It also means they can share how they’re feeling about leaving treatment.

At Avalon Malibu, we’ve seen just how powerful IOPs can be for mental health and addiction recovery.
