Strengthening Skills and Preparing for the Future
Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in the Atlanta area is ideal for those who have successfully completed RESET Addiction Recovery Center’s Partial Hospitalization Program and wish to have continued support in developing the skills needed for a lifetime of sobriety. Our RESET Intensive Outpatient Program may also be appropriate as a starting point for care.
With decades of research backing up the Intensive Outpatient Program model, our program provides encouragement, love and counsel for those making progress with their treatment goals and commitment to recovery.
Patients typically participate in treatment three hours a day. Depending on an individual’s treatment needs, patients are in our Atlanta IOP five days a week for three to four weeks, and then step down to three days a week. This smooth transition allows patients to practice their recovery skills while reintegrating into the structure of work, school or volunteer work during the time they’re not in treatment.
Both day and evening hours are available at our reset IOP, a flexibility that many of our patients family, school and work responsibility appreciate.
In IOP, patients continue to make progress and celebrate important recovery milestones. If an individual has come from a Partial Hospitalization Program, he or she will continue to build on the skills they’ve learned while acquiring new ones to help further their recovery, including:
A community of sober peers offers a sense of connection and accountability. We partner with local structured living facilities to provide a safe and supportive place to live during treatment and when transitioning out of treatment. Structured Living aids in recovery by helping individuals maintain a regular sleep and meal schedule, providing opportunities to practice skills learned in treatment in the real world, and developing friendships with sober peers.
