Intensive Outpatient Program

IOP Rehab in Orange County

IOP with Lift Off is open-ended, which means that clients may choose what works for them. If residential treatment and continuing care were thought of as stepping stones across a deep pond, then the substance abuse treatment, like our intensive outpatient program (IOP treatment center) in Orange County would represent the final step towards solid ground.

IOP

Unlike Lift Off’s other aftercare programs, an intensive outpatient treatment program in Orange County does not occur along a continuum, but is rather employed in an unorthodox way, which we have found from experience – and supported by the most current research – suggests that at this phase of an addict’s treatment and recovery, a unique approach works best.

At Lift Off, an IOP program is fluid. The emphasis is not on administering standardized modalities of treatment or prescribing from a set of psychological assumptions. Instead, it’s one that employs whatever modality is most useful to the individual and the group at any given moment.

Our IOP Substance Abuse Treatment Center in Orange County Includes:

People who have become addicted to fentanyl can recover from the addition. They can heal their bodies, transform their minds, and create newly meaningful lives.

The first stage of addiction recovery—which is the most physically challenging—is detox. Because this process is difficult, it’s best to undergo it with the support of medical professionals in an inpatient detox program. 

Trying to stop “cold turkey,” can trigger severe symptoms of opioid withdrawal syndrome. However, medical detox supports a gradual tapered removal of the drug from the client’s body. This method is a safer and more comfortable way to detox.

At our Orange County residential substance abuse treatment center, trained medical professionals can monitor the detox process and help to alleviate withdrawal symptoms. So, it’s important for someone recovering from a fentanyl addiction to undergo a medically supervised detox.

Fentanyl Withdrawal Symptoms 

When fentanyl use is stopped suddenly or reduced significantly, withdrawal symptoms can develop that are similar to other opioid withdrawal symptoms.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Lift Off’s outpatient treatment provides an exclusive array of addiction treatment services that have been created to meet the needs of a very specific niche population, within the greater Lift Off population of addict’s we treat. The primary treatment objectives during IOP address the transitional needs of clients suffering from alcoholism, drug addiction or substance abuse. During an intensive outpatient program, we provide safe reintegration into mainstream society. The treatment curriculum during intensive outpatient provides a safe place to continue work on co-occurring conditions and underlying issues. Alumni also receive a host of applicable life skills. Wherever possible, treatment coordinates in clinical continuity with referring professionals.

Clinical Benefits of An IOP Treatment Center

During IOP the clinical team supports clients in processing feelings and emotions that surround the transition from alcohol and drug rehab. IOP or intensive outpatient at our Orange County substance abuse treatment center also helps to implement a supportive network of services for solving the triggers of an independent daily living routine. This tactic allows the therapists and staff to engage clients wherever they are on the recovery spectrum. No standard approach is as effective at reaching addicts in their 3rd, 4th, or 5th months of recovery, as protocols that flow organically from the individual and the group. This is an observation which also applies to alumni with accrued years of sobriety under their belts.

Even these people, former clients, and alumni who are in their 2nd or 3rd years of recovery, participate in the outpatient program, because of its inherent clinical benefits. Additionally, a sense of camaraderie pervades intensive outpatient program participants more strongly than the bonds shared between those participating in our other aftercare programs.
As a final word on Lift Off’s intensive outpatient program rehab services, it is significant to note that the majority of care provided inevitably revolves around the unresolved and continuing issues generated by the addict’s dual diagnosis status (more below). When confronting two distinct sets of issues, or issues that overlap symptomatically but whose origins are separate, outpatient care is indispensable. When applied correctly, it strives to include every foreseeable problem-area as well as any unforeseen occurrences that might hinder a safer transition out of inpatient treatment. Assessments of each person create a comprehensive plan best suited to a person’s specific circumstances.

An IOP Treatment Center is All About Transitions

The extended care program provides transitional support for a variety of individual circumstances as well as for a variety of different levels of commitment to the recovery process. As a component of enrollment in an intensive outpatient program, the clinical team assesses each client to determine what risk factors play a role in their maintaining sustained recovery success. Once these risk factors have been identified a personalized treatment plan is developed to assist each client in furthering their commitment to recovery.

Additionally, individual life-goals based on personal passions and interests outline a plan of action for achieving these goals. Vocational and educational placement is a component of the Lift Off’s extended care program. Our location and relationships with local colleges and sober employers ease the difficulty of enrollment and/or hiring. They also help instill a sense of purpose on the pathway to recovery. From this phase of treatment, a foundation into self-supporting recovery is actualized.
