Evening outpatient treatment programs, also referred to night IOP rehabs, allow professionals, students and people with busy schedules to get the addiction treatment they need while continuing to meet their daily professional and personal obligations. Some people who need treatment for their addiction or alcoholism are hesitant to go to an inpatient treatment center because it would mean missing out on paychecks and job responsibilities. However, fear of missing out on paychecks or losing a job shouldn’t stop someone from getting the help they need. Evening outpatient programs provide clients with the information, resources and therapy required to treat addiction.
Benefits of Evening Outpatient Treatment
If the addiction isn’t such that a drug or alcohol detox is necessary, evening outpatient rehab programs are often a viable option. As is the case with other types of drug and alcohol rehab, the effectiveness of an evening outpatient program often depends on the level of commitment the addict has towards their recovery.
Attending evening iop allows individuals to schedule therapy and counseling sessions around their daily schedules. This allows clients the opportunity to keep up with work, school, and social obligations, while still pursuing professional addiction treatment.
Transition from Inpatient
Many people who start their recovery journeys in inpatient rehab transition to nighttime outpatient treatment to help them stay clean. Whether starting inpatient and transitioning to evening IOP, or starting there, these programs provide people with the opportunity to maintain close bonds with supportive friends and family members. This helps mitigate the shock of returning to society, where drugs and alcohol are much more readily available, upon completing inpatient treatment program. This makes the individual that much more prepared to function successfully without experiencing a relapse.
Maintain Family / Social Commitments
In an outpatient program, the individual has a greater opportunity to spend time with those within his support system. Recovery is often more successful when the addict has regular support from those closest to them. These individuals can encourage the addict’s continued sobriety and show their support of his necessary lifestyle changes. Under the right circumstances, remaining active in one’s lifestyle can help avoid a relapse by forcing the individual to confront some of their triggers in real-world situations on a day to day basis.
