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.
Medically Assisted Detox:
In order to withdraw from certain substances and for patients that have been using an addictive substance for a longer period of time, it may be necessary for patients to undergo medically supervised detoxification. Woodlake will administer the appropriate medications to prevent severe withdrawal symptoms. At an appropriate time during the detoxification process Woodlakeâs professional staff will conduct a comprehensive assessment and evaluation to determine the best level of treatment for the individual client. During this phase of treatment patientâs are introduced to educational information about the disease of addiction and 12-Step recovery.
Woodlakeâs Intensive Outpatient Program, focuses on the disease concept which affects the individual physically, psychologically, and spiritually, and is designed for patients who are new to recovery , completed Woodlakeâs Inpatient/ Residential program, or have relapsed. Woodlake Addiction Recovery Centerâs IOP includes a comprehensive evaluation and other assessment as needed to develop a treatment plan to meet and address individual needs. IOP clients are engaged in the recovery process while continuing to maintain their daily lives at work, school, or home and supports continued engagement with their family. Treatment consists of a semi-structured environment providing guidance through group psychotherapy with individual and family sessions as needed. Patients are given assignments to address the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual deficits that accompany addiction.
Knowing that socialization prior to treatment was limited to isolation or others that would not confront the addiction, daily communal living and sharing of responsibilities are emphasized in the person recapturing the common welfare of self in relationship to others. Woodlake Addiction Recovery Centerâs holistic approach affords that process to begin starting from the initial evaluation, individualized treatment plan, specific tasks and assignments correlating all aspects of the personality, to a discharge plan incorporating those learned behaviors into a supportive recovery based environment.
Sober Living Homes:
Sober Living Houses (SLHs), aka sober homes or halfway houses, are safe, substance-free, supportive living facilities for those recovering from substance abuse. Ideal for those who\'ve just been through inpatient or outpatient treatment, SLHs are supervised environments with rules that support sobriety, such as curfews, shared chores, and therapeutic meetings. Residents are also often trained on life skills and coping skills to make it easier to transition into society. SLHs also provide a strong sense of community that can lead to the kind of deep and lasting connections with other sober individuals that supports a new, healthy lifestyle.
Intervention services helps family or friends of addicts stage an intervention, which is a meeting in which loved ones share their concerns and attempt to get an addict into treatment. Professional intervention specialists can help loved ones organize, gather, and communicate with an addict. They can guide intervention participants in describing the damage the addict\'s behavior is causing and that outside help is necessary to address the addiction. The ideal outcome of an intervention is for the addict to go to rehab and get the help they need.
