What comes after residential inpatient treatment? Almost all clients at Discovery Point Retreat enroll in our intensive outpatient program (IOP). Designed to protect you in vulnerable days of early sobriety, the IOP program provides you with essentials tools, support and structure as you continue the next step of your journey.
For most clients, the first step is our medical detox program, which provides safe and painless withdrawal from substances. The next phase is residential inpatient treatment, where you learn to break the psychological addiction to drugs or alcohol, and receive care for any underlying mental health conditions. You may also have an intermediate step down via Discovery Point Retreat’s partial hospitalization program. Then, you’re ready to make the transition to our intensive outpatient program.
At Discovery Point Retreat, our IOP focuses on relapse prevention. At this phase of treatment, you’re prepared for greater independence, which means returning home or finding a place to live. And while the “real world” means being confronted by triggers and stressors, your therapy will have prepared you to face them.
While you’re enrolled in the IOP program, you’ll have access to the same clinical care and support that benefited you as an inpatient client. For example, a typical day in treatment may involve:
The intensive outpatient program at Discovery Point Retreat emphasizes a hands-off approach that lets you explore your independence in early sobriety. However, our IOP program is always there for you — because, despite your earnest commitment, you remain vulnerable to relapse during these initial days of your recovery journey.
That’s why enrollment in our Dallas intensive outpatient program is a crucial element of your new sobriety. Our therapists and clinicians are here to support you through any situation you’re facing. And accountability to your peers is especially useful during times of temptation.
The intensive outpatient program at Discovery Point Retreat builds on your individualized recovery plan and the care you receive in residential inpatient treatment, including:
Because you’re experiencing greater independence in the intensive outpatient program, you’re likely to need workable solutions for real-life problems as they emerge. The intensive outpatient program means you never have to feel alone in your journey. We’re here for you now, too, so just give us a call. And together, we’ll get you on the right path to recovery.
