Intensive Outpatient Treatment & Rehab Program
Intensive Outpatient Program / Partial Hospitalization
Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) and intensive outpatient program (IOP) help clients thrive in early recovery. With regular support from addiction professionals and peers in recovery, clients address underlying issues that contribute to substance abuse, strengthen relapse-prevention skills and get help navigating everyday triggers. Brightwater Landing’s IOP and PHP options can help ease the transition back into daily life for people who’ve attended inpatient drug rehab here or elsewhere. It can also provide structure, accountability and support for those who don’t require residential care.
A Step-Down Approach to Help Build a Strong Foundation in Recovery
Clients gradually build more independence as they develop resiliency and gain confidence in their recovery skills. Typically, clients begin outpatient care in our partial hospitalization program and transition into our intensive outpatient program when appropriate. Our partial hospitalization program provides a higher level of care, meeting for six hours, five days a week. Our intensive outpatient rehab program meets in the mornings for three hours, four days a week. The number of days and hours spent in our PHP or IOP may vary by client depending on their progress and needs.
Personalized Treatment Plans
Each client in our partial hospitalization or comprehensive intensive outpatient service receives a comprehensive assessment so that we can tailor care to their issues and preferences. A small client population and a wide selection of approaches and resources help us make sure that each client’s treatment experience is relevant and relatable. For instance, we offer both 12-step support groups as well as alternatives to the 12 Steps like Refuge Recovery for people who may not relate to the 12 Steps or the concept of a higher power.
Addressing All Aspects of a Client’s Life
Addiction impacts all areas of a person’s life, so treatment should attend to all of it. We help clients begin repairing the parts of their lives that may have suffered while they were using drugs or alcohol, such as spirituality, relationships, family life, careers and personal interests. Clients get help developing a self-care plan for each facet of their lives. They start taking steps toward a more self-directed, better quality of life that includes healthy coping skills and personal goals.
Evidence-Based Therapies and Approaches
Our treatment team draws upon approaches shown to be effective in promoting long-term sobriety. Some of these include:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Experiential and adventure therapies
- Mindfulness practices
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Family therapy (as needed)
- Motivational interviewing
- Acceptance and commitment therapy
Group therapy is a key component of our intensive outpatient program and partial hospitalization program and can be a powerful healing experience for clients. Peers in group therapy often serve as mirrors for each other. Participants see themselves in other group members, learn from them, and in turn discover healthier ways of communicating with others, getting needs met, and building trust and accountability. These are critical components of long-term recovery. Clients also engage in recreational activities like hiking, geocaching, fitness, sports games and more.
Living Situation of the Client’s Choice
We don’t require that clients live in certain residences. Those transitioning out of Brightwater Landing’s inpatient addiction treatment program may choose to continue living in our residences while attending PHP. Outpatient and PHP clients may live in sober-living facilities, at home or in other supportive living situations. We provide transportation to and from programming for clients who live in the area.
Preparing for Life After Treatment
Our treatment approach helps client understand that they have a chronic condition, recognize the negative consequences of it, build life skills and re-embrace life in a way that supports their long-term recovery. We work with each client to make sure they have a strong recovery plan in place when they transition out of outpatient programming. This may include scheduling appointments with individual and family therapists, connecting them with local 12 step groups or alternative 12-step groups like Refuge Recovery and SMART® Recovery, and helping them find a supportive living environment.
