5 Benefits of Our Intensive Outpatient Program


Table of Contents

Like 20 million other people in the United States, you’re struggling with an alcohol or substance use disorder and you long to plug back into the world again. As you look at the road ahead and all of the obstacles you face, you may find it daunting — and it can be. Thankfully, you do have professional and experienced help at hand.

At Tres Vistas Recovery, our team focus solely on helping people recover from substance use disorders. To that end, we offer the services you need to break free from addiction, including our intensive outpatient program (IOP).

To give you an idea about how effective our IOP can be, we outline five benefits here.

1. Non-residential

While we feel that the best path to recovery involves a 30-day residential program followed by IOP, if you meet certain criteria, you may be able to start your road to recovery with IOP. These criteria include:

  • You don’t need medical detox
  • You have a good support system in place
  • You’re able to manage your medications on your own
  • You’re motivated

Our IOP typically entails 3-5 three-hour sessions per week, during which we work in a group setting to help provide you with the recovery tools you need. This allows you to retain some function outside of your recovery, whether it’s for professional reasons, like a job, or personal reasons, such as having young children to care for.

2. Accountability

A key part of our IOP is our ability to monitor you through frequent testing for drugs or alcohol. This testing holds you accountable for your sobriety and keeps you on the right track.

3. You’re not alone

As we mentioned, we conduct our IOP in a group setting, which means that you’ll be working with others as you break free from your substance use disorder. This type of support can be invaluable in early recovery and help you feel far less isolated.

As well, the friends you make in our IOP can often be lifelong friends that you can lean on once you venture back out into the world newly sober.

4. Individual therapy

While much of our IOP involves groups, we also offer individual therapy, providing you with one-on-one attention that addresses your unique needs.

5. Adjunct therapies

In addition to our counseling, we provide other holistic services that can greatly help with your desire to get sober. These services include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Yoga
  • NAD IV therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Sound healing
  • Mediation
  • Adventure therapy

We feel that addressing your overall wellness during early recovery is paramount and through these adjunct therapies, we provide you with tools and experiences that help you to build a more solid foundation moving forward.
