South Carolina Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment is a non-residential level of care designed to provide continuing support for clients as they begin to resume work or school. Intensive outpatient treatment is ideal for those who have completed a residential program and who want to continue treatment while transitioning back to everyday life.
Some clients may be eligible for our intensive outpatient program without completing a residential treatment program first. For clients with a co-occurring mental health diagnosis, such as generalized anxiety or bipolar disorder, we recommend starting with our residential program before moving into our Hilton Head IOP program.
We tailor our South Carolina intensive outpatient drug rehab program to suit the needs of each client. Our IOP program includes:
- Individual and group therapy
- Adventure therapy
- Medical and mental health treatment and monitoring
- Medication assisted treatment
- Life skills training
Intensive outpatient clients stay in IOP for an average of 6 weeks. During this time, clients receive individualized care and nine hours of group therapy each week.
Our intensive outpatient program includes a combination of individual and group sessions on scenic Hilton Head Island. Our objective is to encourage clients with the means and information they need to maintain ongoing sobriety. We do everything possible to accommodate clients’ schedules and ensure they are progressing in their recovery.
Group Therapy on Hilton Head Island
Group therapy offers a dynamic environment for clients completing residential care. Group brings together all clients enrolled in our IOP together for routine sessions. Group therapy topics vary with the therapist directing the group. Frequently, the therapist puts emphasis on a particular topic for the meeting and gives clients a chance to relate to it. Some therapists allow for a more open discussion structure, whereas others keep the discussion targeted to a special theme like relapse prevention.
By participating in a conversation topic, engaging in a group activity, or even just listening to learn, clients can practice their coping and relapse prevention skills while supporting their peers in the group. Clients feel a part of something bigger than themselves, which is glaring contrast from the lonely world of addiction.
