Our Intensive Outpatient Programs

Our Intensive outpatient drug treatment and residential partial hospitalization treatments offer a positive sobriety support system that has been customized to perfection after years of clinical study and research. Our partial hospitalization and outpatient programs both involve the 12 step recovery programs. Treatments may include group therapy, one on one counseling, drug and alcohol education, medical care, and family programs.

Clinically Proven Drug and Alcohol Treatments Programs

The majority of patients at SLO Recovery Centers has successfully undergone higher levels of care and is now leading a drug and alcohol free life. We have formulated a master Relapse Prevention Plan as well as helping our patients to develop coping skills that will eventually help them to overcome their addiction.

Our Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Treatments

Our standard outpatient drug treatment program includes group therapy, individualized treatment and family therapy which are performed between two or three times a week, and implemented in conjunction with a patient specific care plan. These sessions may be performed in the evening or on weekends so you can go to your work.

Intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) usually involves around 10 to 20 hours of counseling or group therapy spread over two or three days a week. This may last for 1 to 5 months. A more intensive form of outpatient treatment is day care center/hospital. This means you go for treatment 5 days a week, usually for most of the day.

Intensive outpatient drug addiction treatment may be good option if:

  • You cannot quit work or take a leave of absence;
  • You want to be close to loved ones;
  • You can stay away from drugs or alcohol where you live;
  • Can’t afford inpatient alcohol abuse treatments because inpatient treatments are too expensive.

Partial Hospitalization Treatments

Partial hospitalization treatments may be a part of a hospital or a rehabilitation center. You’ll sleep at the facility and get therapy in the day or evening.

At SLO Recovery Centers a lot of drug addicted persons enroll for both outpatient and partial hospitalization programs in order to experience the most extensive care. While selecting which treatment program is most suited to your needs, it is critically important to explore the reasons behind your addiction and choose the program which will give you the best chance of recovery.

Partial Hospitalization may be a good option if:

  • You have tried outpatient treatment but it didn’t work;
  • You have other physical or mental health problems;
  • Your home situation makes it hard to stay away from drugs or alcohol;
  • You don’t live near an outpatient treatment clinic.

You may stay for 1 to 6 weeks, depending on how your recovery is going. After partial hospitalization, you should go to outpatient treatment for more counseling and group therapy. Partial hospitalization also may be residential, which means you stay at the facility for months.
