Individual Therapy is Once-a-Week in IOP

Individual therapy, or psychotherapy, is the most common form of behavioral therapy. Clients meet in private therapy sessions with one of our highly-trained therapists. Our therapists can can help them identify and accurately speak to the things that impacted the start of substance abuse. The safety of treatment may be where the addict finally comes to terms with their anxieties and can concede their alcohol or drug addiction. Furthermore, clients may be fearful of losing their job or the trust of their family if they freely acknowledge their substance abuse. The relationship nurtured between the client and Medsave Clinic’s addiction therapists allows the client to honesty. Ultimately, our therapists do this so that hidden issues can be brought into the open, resolved, and managed on an ongoing basis.

Group Therapy in IOP

Group therapy offers a diverse atmosphere for clients. It brings all Medsave Addiction Treatment Center clients at our IOP together for regular sessions. The group therapy structure will vary depending on the therapist leading the discussion. Oftentimes, the therapist emphasizes a particular topic for the gathering and gives clients an opportunity to discuss their individual experiences. Some therapists allow for a more open discussion format, whereas others keep the conversation targeted to a particular theme. By contributing to a conversation topic, engaging in a group activity, or even just listening, clients can start to mend their addiction struggles while supporting others in the group. Clients feel a part of something, which is stark contrast from their isolated existence in substance abuse.

Client-Focused Intensive Outpatient Program

During the intensive outpatient program, each client maintains a treatment team that includes a physician, nurse, primary counselor, case manager, and nutritionist. This team is responsible for assessing and working with each client to continue both an individualized plan of care and next level addiction care recommendations. At Medsave Addiction Treatment Center, we believe that everyone choosing recovery over addiction has taken the biggest step of their life. Although recovery isn’t easy, most will tell you it’s absolutely worth it! Substance abuse take its toll on you mentally and physically. Addicts routinely express feeling exhausted and hopeless. The first step is to be honest with yourself and ask for help. Seeking assistance is a sign of strength and commitment to improving oneself. We urge you to be honest with us about your history of substance use, so we can best help tailor a comprehensive addiction treatment program. Specifically, we offer a range of therapies that are pointed to root out problems of drug abuse and alcoholism.

Intensive Outpatient is Vital for Long-Term Sobriety

Addiction treatment disconnects the individual from all likely triggers in their community for a protracted period of time. If a client returns to the same routines, they are in danger of relapse. The IOP program is critical to the transition back into everyday life, by strengthening all the therapies from partial hospitalization treatment. At Medsave Clinic, our IOP’s most important goal is to help our clients live a sober, healthy lifestyle after treatment. Moreover, we successfully steer our clients through the difficult times that come with addiction recovery. Clients work with their therapists individually and on a weekly basis. When clients are not participating in group therapy, they can be found working, going to school, or going to outside 12-step meetings. IOP provides clients with an easy transition from a rehab setting to a continued journey of recovery with family and friends. Family members can rest assured that their loved ones are getting the substance abuse treatment they need in order to achieve lasting change.
