Outpatient Programs (OP) are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.
Intensive Outpatient programs are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.
The Intensive Outpatient Program at Beit TâShuvah is for adults, 18 and older, who are ready to make the commitment to recovery, but due to personal and professional obligations, inpatient treatment is not an option.
Their individualized program is unique in that they are the only not-for-profit community-based IOP providing clients with their own team of professionals dedicated to their recovery. Each client is assigned an addiction counselor, a psychotherapist, and a spiritual counselor, which allows them to provide truly individualized treatment. As a not-for-profit, they are able to focus on recovery and to help each of their clients create a sustainable foundation upon which they can rebuild their lives.
Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient\'s individual requirements.
The Primary Residential Treatment program is tailored to residents in their first 90-120 days of recovery. The program includes individual and group counseling, therapy, spiritual counseling, Shabbat and Jewish holiday services, and an introduction to Alcoholics Anonymous and the principles of the 12-Steps. Beit T\'Shuvah provides an array of group instruction: covering such topics as substance abuse education, relapse prevention, AA step study, Jewish ethics, relationships, life skills, health, anger management, conflict resolution, personal responsibility, and hygiene. Primary residents are also offered the opportunity to participate in their Complementary Programs, which include a wide array of creative programming such as: choir, recording studio sessions, theater arts (Freedom Song), organic gardening, and more. Recognizing that substance abuse is not only a disease of the mind, soul, and spirit, but of the body as well, Beit T\'Shuvah primary residents can also engage in activities like yoga, fitness training, surf therapy, snowboarding and the LA Marathon our \"Run To Save A Soul\" team and training program.
Sober Living Homes:
By the time a resident is ready to complete the Extended Residential Treatment program, it is anticipated that the resident\'s awareness and acceptance of their commitment to recovery is sufficient to maintain a recovery plan with a greater level of independence. For their graduates, Beit T\'Shuvah offers off-site housing within walking distance of their main campus. These residents are encouraged to facilitate their transition into life by paying rent, managing their own work and social lives, while still living within a supportive and loving sober community.
Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn\'t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).
