The journey to addiction is different for everyone. No two people have experienced the adverse effects of addiction in exactly the same ways. When making the brave choice to enter recovery, an addiction treatment program should be as unique as the person. An intensive outpatient treatment program in Pennsylvania is available and ready to answer your questions. Call 717.744.0756 to learn more.

At Arkview Recovery in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, our professional, compassionate staff provides 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 and 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 flexible outpatient setting, as opposed to an inpatient program where the patient is required to live on the premises. Our IOP is usually begun after completing detox and a residential treatment program. The patient has received treatment and therapy and now has the coping skills and understanding necessary to transition into an outpatient program.

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

  • Individual, group, and family therapy programs
  • Scheduled treatment activities for several hours a day, several days a week
  • Pharmacotherapy, if necessary
  • Care for co-occurring mental health conditions
  • Recreational therapy

While it is possible to enter directly into an IOP, most people step down to more flexible outpatient care options, like an IOP, after completing a residential program 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 constantly reassess your treatment goals.

Outpatient vs. Inpatient Treatment

When deciding to enter recovery, many people face uncertainty about what type of recovery program would suit their needs. Our Arkview Recovery team will work with you to collaborate on the best course of action for your addiction treatment. It is essential to know the differences between outpatient and inpatient addiction treatment so that you can be your own best advocate. The most crucial difference between inpatient and outpatient treatment is that clients in inpatient care live at a treatment facility full time. In contrast, clients in outpatient care live off-site at home or in sober living housing. However, there are other critical differences between inpatient and outpatient care, including:

  • Inpatient treatment can 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 relapse during treatment.
