According to the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, about 14.5 million people aged 12 and above in the U.S. had an alcohol use disorder (AUD). Excessive alcohol use leads to several health issues that many people get medical help for, but only a small percentage seek direct assistance to treat their AUD. Alcohol-related deaths have been on the rise in recent years, mostly due to chronic conditions like liver cirrhosis, stroke, and liver cancer that develop due to heavy alcohol consumption. A significant percentage of opioid overdose deaths also involve alcohol.
Addiction treatment provides an escape from the life-threatening consequences of AUD. At Experience Recovery, we have an unexcelled intensive outpatient program in Orange County that addresses issues leading to and arising from alcohol abuse.
How Our Intensive Outpatient Program Works
If you have a severe addiction and co-occurring mental health disorder, receiving intensive substance abuse treatment in Santa Ana and treatment for the mental health condition simultaneously is vital. However, not everyone is able to take a break from their daily responsibilities in order to attend our inpatient program. This is where our intensive outpatient program (IOP) comes in. IOP at our drug and alcohol rehab in Orange County, CA, enables our clients to access the care and support they need but without upsetting their routines.
Apart from those who cannot leave their daily obligations to seek treatment, our intensive outpatient care is also designed for people who’ve completed inpatient detox and rehab in Santa Ana at our facility.
IOP care after residential rehab is important since it provides continuing support for newly sober individuals. Also, going straight from inpatient detox and treatment in Santa Ana to a basic outpatient plan can thrust you into a less-restrictive setting that you’re not yet ready to handle.
Duration of IOP Rehab
Most of our treatment services during IOP Orange County addiction treatment are similar to those we offer in our residential program. But the main difference is that patients spend less time every week receiving treatment. Rehabilitation takes place 5 days each week, 3 hours per day. The overall length of our IOP will depend on the individual. Some may need to remain at this level of care for longer, while others will move on to outpatient care faster.
Our IOP Treatment Services
During IOP rehabilitation, we offer science-backed treatment modalities, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, trauma-informed care, and motivational enhanced therapy. Our top psychologists, physicians, licensed therapists, and nurses administer clinical services through a highly individualized model. Throughout treatment, you’ll work with a case manager and primary therapist who’ll oversee your treatment plan.
Our IOP care is great when preparing for outpatient treatment. Outpatient care comes with a lot of freedom and requires you to visit our facility for a few hours every week. As such, you’ll spend most of your time outside rehab, which can increase your risk of relapse. However, IOP treatment prepares you to face daily stressors in a safe environment while equipping you with the skills needed to maintain sobriety even outside of rehab.
Compassionate, Comprehensive Alcohol Addiction Treatment
Treatment for alcohol addiction will vary depending on various factors, including the severity of your alcohol dependency, how long you have been drinking, medical conditions, and co-occurring disorders. At Experience Recovery, we’ll conduct a thorough clinical evaluation to see whether you can benefit from our premier intensive outpatient program in Orange County.
