Intensive Outpatient & Recovery Program (IOP Treatment)
Addiction is as unique as the people who suffer from it. Treating addiction and substance abuse is a complicated and individualized experience for everyone. What may work for some, may not work for others. Knowing that addiction is a different, chronic disease for many people, options have been created to provide unique and individual care. One of these options is outpatient rehab.
Outpatient treatment can be used immediately after inpatient treatment, or on its own. There are many benefits to this treatment, even more benefits and amenities when you consider luxury outpatient treatment as an option.
What is Outpatient Treatment?
Outpatient rehab centers are designed to provide care and treatment to individuals outside of the rehab facility. Like the name implies, outpatient clients are not required to live at the treatment facility during recovery. This method of treatment is often used as the transition period between detox and full recovery, but for many, outpatient treatment is the only option. An outpatient treatment facility will have many connections in the recovery community to help clients readjust to their daily lives without the use of drugs or alcohol.
If you or a loved one is seeking help for alcohol or drug addiction, please call us today 866-349-1770.
Is Outpatient Treatment Right for You?
When considering rehab options, it’s important to choose programs that will take into account your specific needs and health requirements. One of the biggest reasons why rehab fails for many people is the fact that the treatment program chosen is not specifically designed for them. By missing out on unique opportunities for breakthroughs and recovery, the chances of relapse increase and the rehab is less likely to be successful. Luxury outpatient rehab requires an increased level of commitment from clients since individuals are held entirely accountable for their actions during outpatient treatment.
Recovery from drugs or alcohol is similar to learning: while some learn best by reading, others learn best by getting hands-on experience. There is no right or wrong way to learn; we are all different. Rehab is the same. While some may benefit from the constant attention and monitored lifestyle of inpatient treatment, others are able to keep up with treatment through outpatient rehab while retaining most of their regular daily routines.
Who is the Ideal Client for IOP Treatment?
Since treatment for drug or alcohol rehab is a completely personal and unique journey, there are some types of people who would benefit most from an outpatient treatment facility while other may do better with other programs.
Some of the factors that would cause a person to benefit from outpatient treatment include:
- If a person is able to control or self-regulate their exposure to substances.
- If privacy is an issue and they need treatment to be kept private.
- If they are unable to take time off work or school to enter inpatient rehab but need to get help right away.
- If a person has already been through detox and is simply looking for a gentle transition between rehab and the real world.
These are all good reasons to enter outpatient rehab. Some people may be able to seek help without disrupting their lives. However, it’s important to take a critical look at yourself before deciding what type of rehab is best. Learn more about our treatment plans contact us today.
Our Florida Outpatient Program Can Provide Numerous Benefits
The number one benefit of taking part in an outpatient rehab treatment program is the fact that for the most part, you can continue with your routine. Outpatient care allows clients to continue working or going to school. In most cases, outpatient clients are able to live at home and get support from their family during recovery. Outpatient clients retain most of their independence and are usually only required to set aside a few hours per week for treatment.
Luxury outpatient treatment is also often less expensive than inpatient treatment since clients are not obligated to pay for room and board during their treatment. With regular meetings and a support system of therapists, peers and mentors, outpatient services can often be just as effective as inpatient services. Outpatient treatment also works more extensively to prepare clients for a life outside of rehab. By practicing sobriety in the real world, clients are experienced in handling triggers and removing themselves from situations or environments, which may cause a relapse.
What are the Challenges of an Intensive Outpatient Program?
This type of treatment is only beneficial for a specific type of person. Someone who needs the structure and forced abstention from his or her substance of choice may not benefit from this therapy. Clients with co-occurring conditions such as bipolar, schizophrenia, depression, anxiety or other eating or sexual disorders may also require the additional attention that is afforded to inpatient clients.
Outpatient treatment is not ideal for clients who have yet to detox, or who need help with detoxing. In these situations, an inpatient program with 24-hour medical care is preferred.
With outpatient treatment, much of the onus is placed on clients; things like drug testing or regular check-ins with a therapist are often required. Outpatient clients are held completely accountable for their actions. So a patient who is unable to cope with the pressure may not be the best candidate for outpatient treatment.
What is Aftercare?
Aftercare is another term that is similar to outpatient treatment. When a person enters inpatient rehab, an extensive recovery plan is outlined from detox to reentry to society. Reentering the world as a sober person is where aftercare comes in. It usually consists of therapy sessions, group sessions and other activities to reduce the chances of relapse by developing coping mechanisms and avoiding triggers in the real world.
Aftercare is a vital part of luxury outpatient rehab treatment as it helps reinforce the themes and therapy done during inpatient rehab for clients to live long, happy, sober lives outside of rehab.
How is Beachside’s IOP Program Different?
Beachside employs a holistic method to recovery. This means that our treatments aim to heal the mind, body and soul of our clients. Through private and group therapy sessions, we work to identify the unique physical, psychological and spiritual factors that lead to addiction and substance abuse. By working on these issues and promoting a positive and active lifestyle, we can help our clients to continue practicing mindfulness and healthy habits throughout their lives to maintain sobriety and prevent relapse.
Our beautiful facility on Hutchison Island on the Atlantic Coast of Florida offers the perfect location to attend support sessions and group therapy in a private and relaxing atmosphere. Find out more today 866-349-1770.
Many individuals seeking help with drug and alcohol addiction enjoy the benefits and advantages of an outpatient program. Whether you are transitioning from an intensive inpatient program or you are currently sober and simply need some extra encouragement, our facilities are always available. As a luxury outpatient rehab center, outpatient clients are always invited to group sessions at our Hutchison Island facility. On the beautiful Atlantic Coast of Florida, our facility is calming and relaxing, the perfect place to recover from substance abuse.
Our holistic method of treatment allows clients to identify and avoid triggers in their daily lives that could be detrimental to their sobriety and recovery. Much like inpatient treatment, outpatient clients are assigned their own private therapist who handles their case. Clients are provided the option to attend between 1 to 9 hours of group therapy each week.
Unlike inpatient therapy, which usually lasts between 30-90 days, outpatient therapy has no time limit, and clients are welcome to join group sessions for as long as they need to get results. By not putting a time limit on luxury outpatient treatment, we can support our clients and help them deal with any additional stress that may come with outpatient recovery.
Enjoy the Benefits of an Active Outpatient Lifestyle
Part of the holistic method of recovery is learning to enjoy life to its fullest. This means engaging in healthy habits. People who are happy, healthy and active are less likely to engage in risky behavior and rely on the use of substances to cope or deal with emotions or trauma. Beachside inpatients enjoy a comprehensive list of activities and classes designed to promote health and wellbeing. Our outpatient rehab clients are also welcome to enjoy all the same amenities and activities.
Some of our most popular activities include:
- Ocean Meditation
- Beach walks and runs
- Musical Lessons
- Horseback Riding
In addition to these activities, we also host community cook-outs which give an opportunity for all clients to mingle and share their experiences in a social setting that is friendly and relaxed.

The Role of Family in Luxury Outpatient Rehab Treatment
For individuals in outpatient treatment, family support is one of the most important support systems to have. In most cases, individuals in treatment will remain in contact with their family and perhaps even live with family while in recovery. By offering family therapy sessions and support to provide full families with the information and tools to make recovery easier for their loved one, we can improve these core relationships and further assist in preventing relapse.
What about 12-Step Programs and Support Groups?
At Beachside, we advocate for the use of 12-step programs in addition to working with an outpatient rehab center. 12-step programs are proven to be successful, especially as an aftercare option and outpatient treatment. These programs are so helpful for many reasons, but some of the best benefits of 12-step programs include:
Give and Receive Support: In a group of peers with similar experiences, clients will feel supported and understood. Since addiction and substance abuse can often isolate individuals from their friends and families, the support of like-minded people going through similar experiences can make people feel accepted. It’s also comforting to know that others may be going through a similar situation.
No Judgment: One of the biggest benefits of these programs is the fact that there is no judgment. For many individuals, sharing personal thoughts and feelings can seem daunting, and the fear of being judged or ridiculed can be a major roadblock. 12-step programs advocate for complete acceptance, creating a safe space for individuals to share.
Create Lasting Friendship: The friends that are made during luxury outpatient treatment and while in 12-step programs become friends for life. Creating bonds with others and supporting peers outside of therapy sessions is a major key to preventing relapse.
Learning New Techniques: If you have a tough problem to solve, it’s often advised to get a second perspective. Sometimes, having someone else see your problem from their point of view can offer helpful tips and tricks to solve the problem more easily. It’s the same with support groups and 12-step programs. You may learn a new coping method from someone else in the group, or you may be able to offer your own advice on what works for you.
Reinforce Sobriety and Prevent Relapse: While it may sound not so nice to say, seeing someone in the group who has relapsed can serve as a reminder of the consequences of relapse. During recovery, there will be times when the idea of using substances again may seem like a good idea. Seeing how it affects others in your group can help prevent relapse in the future.
Gain Confidence that Recovery is Possible: 12-step programs are great for acknowledging success. By seeing your peers do well, it will instill positive thinking and confidence that recovery is possible.
