Intensive Outpatient Programs
Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) are beneficial for clients that have successfully completed an inpatient program or a Partial Hospitalization Program. They are also helpful for clients who are relapsing while in a traditional outpatient program. IOP offers a structured environment with a focus on gaining the necessary tools to remain clean and sober. Typical IOP programs meet three hours a day, three days a week and typically last for ten to twelve weeks. One major benefit of IOP programs is that they allow for individuals to continue with daily activities, such as employment, while receiving necessary substance abuse treatment. The majority of commercial health insurance plans will cover IOP treatment. Pathways Florida’s IOP program includes additional addiction education and focuses on addressing triggers and life stressors that clients experience on a daily basis. Many everyday events (family issues, legal issues, employment, etc.) can be overwhelming and individuals in recovery run the risk of relapse without having the proper skills to process them. IOP clients receive weekly individual counseling and family counseling as needed. Psychiatric services are available if clinically indicated. Pathways Florida also offers IOP with room and board for individuals who do not yet have a safe living environment in the community.
Commercial health insurance companies sometimes have strict guidelines about what types of treatment they will cover and what lengths of stay they will cover. Pathways Florida has multiple treatment programs available and the ability to be flexible with lengths of stay. This ensures that Pathways Florida clients have the best opportunity to receive the substance abuse treatment that he/she needs.
