/Each person who is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction has a unique life journey. As a result, no two people have experienced the adverse effects of addiction. When these addicted people make the brave choice to enter into recovery, their addiction treatment program should be as unique as the person.

At Arkview Recovery in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, our staff believes that each person in recovery requires a customized treatment plan so that the treatment will be as effective as possible for that particular person. Once you have decided to enter treatment at Arkview Recovery, our admissions team will take a full inventory of your current physical and mental health, as well as the amount and frequency of drug or alcohol use. We then use this information to determine which of our many treatment options would be best for you. One of the treatment options that we offer is our intensive outpatient treatment program, also known as an IOP.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment Defined

The intensive outpatient treatment program at Arkview Recovery gives people the opportunity to pursue recovery in a residential setting. If needed, our IOP begins with treatment in our detox program to rid your body of the toxic chemicals from your addiction. Once you have completed the detox process, you will then move on to the intensive outpatient treatment program.

Some of the features of the intensive outpatient treatment program at Arkview Recovery include:

  • An average length of approximately twenty-eight days
  • Individual, group, and family therapy programs
  • Pharmacotherapy, if necessary
  • Care for co-occurring mental health conditions
  • Recreational therapy

After completing inpatient treatment, people may step down to more flexible care options like outpatient treatment so they can practice newfound recovery skills while still receiving clinical support. Our team will communicate with you to keep track of your progress and to constantly reassess your goals in treatment.

Outpatient vs. Inpatient Treatment

People may not be sure what type of recovery program would be best for their needs. Rest assured that the Arkview Recovery team will work with you to collaborate on the best course of action for your addiction treatment. However, it is always helpful to be informed about different levels of addiction treatment so that you can be your own best advocate. So, it is important to know the differences between outpatient and inpatient addiction treatment.
The most crucial difference between inpatient and outpatient treatment is that clients in inpatient care live at a treatment facility full time, while clients in outpatient care live off-site at home or in sober living housing. However, there are additional key differences between inpatient and outpatient care, including:

  • Inpatient treatment is able to provide more significant support during withdrawal.
  • Outpatient treatment can be scheduled around a person’s existing responsibilities.
  • Inpatient treatment provides around-the-clock care.
  • Outpatient treatment is often more affordable.
  • Inpatient treatment is more likely to prevent a return to use during treatment.
