Addiction is a mental health disease that is treatable through a combination of behavioral therapy and medication. An intensive outpatient program for substance abuse is one type of treatment program where patients attend therapy a few days a week while living at home or in a sober living environment. Intensive outpatient treatment is just one step in the recovery process and offers continuing support for men and women to maintain their sobriety.
At Arkview Recovery, we help men and women from all walks of life who are struggling with substance abuse or other mental health disorders. We offer a full range of treatment programs where patients will participate in a number of behavioral and holistic therapies where they develop healthy coping skills to manage their symptoms. If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, today is the perfect day to make a positive change.

Treating Substance Abuse
Drugs and alcohol abuse can cause permanent damage to your brain and other vital organs. Heart disease, liver and kidney damage, cancer, and other illnesses are just some of the medical conditions caused by long-term substance abuse. Treating substance abuse takes time, commitment, and dedication. Therapists work with patients to help them understand what led to the addiction while treating the physical withdrawal symptoms with FDA-approved medication.
When you first try to quit drugs or alcohol alone, you will experience withdrawal symptoms and cravings that will be very difficult and potentially deadly without help. Some of the common withdrawal symptoms include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Mood swings
- Muscle pain
- Stomach cramps
- Delirium tremens
- Sexual dysfunction and problems conceiving
At Arkview Recovery Center, we will perform a complete assessment to place you in an appropriate treatment program to begin your recovery. Patients with a less severe addiction can begin their recovery through an intensive outpatient treatment program for substance abuse.
The Benefits of Enrolling in a Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program
A substance abuse intensive outpatient program is for patients who have completed a residential or partial hospitalization program and can abstain from drugs or alcohol with minimal supervision. Certified therapists trained in treating substance abuse will determine the best type of program for your recovery. They will continue to monitor you during the program to see when you are ready for the next stage of recovery.
Some of the benefits of enrolling in an intensive outpatient program for substance abuse include:
- Continued medical support and behavioral therapy help patients maintain their sobriety for life.
- Patients will participate in behavioral therapy to improve self-esteem and confidence in their ability to cope with any stressful situation they may face without reaching for more drugs or alcohol.
- At this stage, withdrawal symptoms and cravings are minimal, and medical staff will start reducing the amount of medication until you are 100% drug-free.
- During group therapy, patients will continue practicing coping skills with their peers while forming strong friendships that will support them long after treatment ends.
- Family therapy will continue during intensive outpatient treatment to restore trust and bring everyone closer together.
