Structured treatment programs help people recovering from substance use disorder (SUD) establish and maintain healthy routines. You may wonder if non-residential programs provide enough support and accountability to ensure your long-term sobriety. Studies have shown an “intensive outpatient program (IOP) or partial hospitalization program (PHP) is appropriate for patients with mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms.” The non-residential programs offered at The Redpoint Center’s Longmont, Colorado, facility provide clients with the support and care they need to recover from SUD and related mental health disorders.
Does Outpatient Care Provide Enough Structure?
Outpatient programs, including IOP and PHP, meet throughout the day, with both morning and evening sessions available. The flexibility allows people with varying schedules to continue attending weekly treatment while attending to work and home responsibilities. Non-residential programs also have weekend sessions to reduce the time clients spend outside of treatment during early recovery. Every program has different levels of care. Clinicians collaborate closely with clients to determine the best treatment plan and services to meet their needs.
Non-residential programs provide structured treatment by doing the following:
- Giving people access to essential addiction recovery services
- Providing peer engagement in a controlled environment
- Holding clients accountable for participating in treatment sessions
- Ensuring clients learn time management by prioritizing attendance
- Providing a drug-free space for treatment and healing
- Meeting every client where they are today and finding healthy ways to engage them in recovery
Clinicians set clear client expectations to help them manage their mental and physical well-being. Your care team will work with you to find the best balance between treatment and independent sobriety. Many people temporarily transition to a sober living community while participating in outpatient treatment if they feel the need for additional support. The combination of sober living and IOP or PHP programs is similar to inpatient treatment for individuals with less severe symptoms.
Structured Treatment Helps You Overcome Challenges
Everyone experiences difficult moments during treatment and ongoing recovery. The team at The Redpoint Center has experienced overcoming challenges related to rehabilitation. Your care team can provide you with helpful insights on how to prevent potential problems before they occur. Relapse prevention education, skill development, peer support, and other services ensure you have the tools you need to successfully maintain sobriety.
Outpatient programs help you heal and overcome challenges in early recovery by doing the following:
- Providing you with access to a team of professionals with decades of experience navigating addiction recovery
- Ensuring you have a plan in place for coping with unexpected issues as they arise
- Using individualized care to address potential stressors or triggers and develop preventative measures
You can collaborate with your therapist to create crisis management and relapse prevention strategies to achieve your recovery goals.
Structured Treatment Allows You to Balance Personal Responsibilities and Self-Care
You are not alone in your recovery. Your care team will guide you through challenging moments and ensure you feel motivated to continue making positive changes. Full-day programs help you develop essential coping skills you can practice in real-world situations. In addition, non-residential treatment allows you to focus more time on creating self-care routines ideal for your lifestyle.
You may worry about how to maintain a career or home life while balancing addiction recovery. The Redpoint Center understands the value of outpatient programs like partial hospitalization. Clinicians ensure clients have the resources to balance their personal, professional, and recovery goals. You won’t have to put your whole life on hold to get the treatment you need to heal.
Full-day programs provide structure and freedom by doing the following:
- Holding you accountable for your recovery choices
- Offering a safe space for self-expression and growth
- Ensuring you have the resources and tools you need to function day-to-day
- Increasing quality of life and reducing overall stress
You don’t need residential treatment to successfully manage SUD. Full-day programs provide all the services you need to thrive during treatment and aftercare. Many people in recovery choose to participate in outpatient care while attending a sober living community. The combination allows them to work, go to school, and raise a family without putting their sobriety at risk. A structured environment provides additional support and reduces the risk of relapse.
