Finding the right therapy type is significant when it comes to getting help for drug and alcohol addiction. Many people don’t realize how extensive care options are, which often means they do not know how well rehab can fit their lives. Are you in need of support? Intensive outpatient rehab may be right for you. This form of outpatient rehab is effective in some situations. It is something we can help you with at Compass Detox.
Do You Need Detox?
The first step in getting any care you need is learning if detox and inpatient care are necessary for you. Be realistic here. The fact is, many men and women do need detox. This is a safe environment that allows you to break your dependence on drugs while receiving medical and medication support. If you’ve used drugs for a long time or have used highly addictive drugs, this may be your first step. You may need detox if you:
- Overdosed previously
- Relapsed previously
- Struggled with not using at all
- Have health risks
- Cannot stop on your own
When Is Outpatient Rehab, Okay?
Most people with addiction need more than traditional outpatient rehab. In its most traditional form, people visit their therapist once or twice a week to get help. If you are actively addicted or struggling to stop using, that, too, may not be enough. However, intensive outpatient rehab may be. Formally called intensive outpatient program (IOP), this type of therapy involves a higher level of care for more hours of a day.
The amount of time you spend in intensive outpatient rehab depends on your needs. For example, you may need to spend more time initially during your first days and weeks in therapy than you will over time. Most people spend time in this type of therapy most days of the week and for most hours of the day. Over time, this becomes less as you reach goals and gain more confidence in your future and health.
Is Intensive Outpatient Rehab Right for You?
You may benefit from this type of outpatient rehab if you have a safe, drug-free environment to live in. That means you should be surrounded by only people who can support you in your recovery. You need that safe environment that’s drug-free.
You also may benefit from this type of therapy if you want to be able to work. Sometimes it is possible to work and get this type of care, depending on your situation and needs.
To determine if it is right for you, it’s best to reach out for an assessment. Discuss your needs, goals, and overall well-being before deciding to get this type of care.
