Intensive Outpatient Treatment for Addicts and Their Families

Intensive outpatient treatment programs at Lion Rock Recovery provide addicts and their families with an online forum to treat drug and alcohol abuse. The programs range from 8-12 weeks and require a weekly commitment of three to four mornings (or evenings) at two to three hour intervals for each counseling session. Patients participating in intensive outpatient programs are responsible for joining these group chats from the comfort of their own homes, providing maximum privacy and convenience. Counselors are nationally certified and dedicated to evaluating the level of substance abuse addiction as well as the contributing social and psychological factors involved.

Intensive Outpatient Programs Offer Gradual Recovery

If you or someone close to you is suffering with drug or alcohol addiction it may be time to consider a program designed to identify the addiction (or addictions) as well as the causal factors of lifestyle and behavior that contribute to the perpetuation of substance abuse. Before committing to such a program of recovery, it’s important to ask what is intensive outpatient treatment, and how can it benefit you or your loved ones? Lion Rock has counselors available to answer any questions you may have over the phone, and can walk you through the steps of re-orienting the individual who suffers with addiction over a period of eight to twelve weeks.

Intensive Outpatient Programs: The Road to Recovery

Just like a disease that compromises our immune system and forces us to relinquish certain bodily functions we so often take for granted, so can addiction drive the most intelligent, kind-hearted, and well-meaning individuals to self-medicate, inevitably hurting themselves and those around them. Traditionally, the road to recovery for severe drug and alcohol abuse required removing oneself from the patterns of work and home to isolate the sufferer in a group setting. At Lion Rock, intensive outpatient programs offer addicts and their families another option that preserves commitments to work and home while incorporating intense and effective counseling sessions online.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment: One Woman’s Journey

I never thought I was an addict. I was a successful career woman, married with two healthy children and an active social life. People depended on me and I didn’t let them down, but I couldn’t do any of it without alcohol. In fact, that’s what I believed: that alcohol enabled me to be as high functioning as I was. But like all addicts, I hit bottom. When I first heard about Lion Rock Recovery from a friend, I was skeptical and wondered what is intensive outpatient treatment, and how can it benefit me? After my first week of intense online group sessions, I realized it was the perfect option to gradually take control over my addiction to alcohol, one session at a time.
