Overcoming addiction is one of the hardest things to do and frequently requires qualified professional medical assistance. In most cases, mental health issues, like depression or anxiety, accompany the dependency on drugs or alcohol. Starting on the road to recovery is difficult and ultimately rewarding but it is not without its challenges.
After completing detox and a residential addiction treatment program, one’s mind and body may be healthier, but that point along the path of recovery is precarious. Relapse is a constant threat.
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) may be the right level of care for you or a loved one at that point. Call La Fuente Hollywood Treatment Center today at 888.903.9898 or contact us online.
What Is an Intensive Outpatient Program for Addiction?
An IOP is a form of outpatient therapy and a specific level of care provided by an addiction treatment center. As the name implies, it is not a residential program, and in fact, often follows detox and completion of a residential treatment program. It provides limited structure and treatment during the day while allowing the client to live at home, hold a job, or participate in service work.
An intensive outpatient program is less demanding than a partial hospitalization program, only requiring about three hours a day. Those hours are devoted to various treatments and activities designed to aid in recovery and prevent relapse. These could include clinical behavioral therapies, like cognitive-behavioral therapy, or group therapy, 12-step meetings, or even yoga and meditation.
The IOP is for individuals who have integrated coping skills into their lives and are firmly in recovery but still require additional support and care within a structured environment.
What Are the Benefits?

An intensive outpatient program for addiction in Hollywood, California, might seem cost-prohibitive. Addiction treatment is a continuum of care and there are costs associated with everything from detox to sober living. However, La Fuente makes the financial obligation less burdensome by accepting insurance from many recognized national providers.

Party drugs, alcohol, depression, and isolation are prevalent in society, but especially in the LGBTQ community. The dual diagnosis of addiction coupled with mental health disorders is not uncommon and requires specialized treatment. Unfortunately, this combination of dependency and mental health can alienate an individual from their community and deter their search for addiction treatment, especially if they do not feel accepted or welcomed by the medical community.
La Fuente makes it easier to reach out for help by providing a welcoming environment specializing in addiction treatment for the LGBTQ community. Treatment does not end at detox, and outpatient therapy is essential to preventing relapse and remaining in recovery.
