As individuals progress through their addiction treatment, receiving an added layer of support in an evidenced-based and supportive environment will make it possible to enjoy their new, sober lifestyle.
Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) meet three days a week for three hours a day and provide a part-time schedule that allows individuals to continue on-going therapy while working and living at home or near the facility.
Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) are five to six days a week, six hours a day. Providence Recovery is in the process of developing a program suited to individuals and their recovery. PHPs provide critical and intensive care without a full residential stay. At Providence Recovery Services, we understand that every individual is different, meaning a customized patient-centered treatment plan is necessary.
Core components of our IOP/PHP many behavioral therapies, including:
During treatment, we will also employ experiential and adventure therapies, encourage individuals attend other support groups and counseling and offer relapse prevention education.
Addiction treatment can bring up a lot of questions. We understand. Our addiction professionals receive many commonly asked questions, such as:
At the beginning of the IOP/PHP, an individual will meet with one of our addiction professionals to discuss a treatment plan and the individual’s recovery goals. Our staff member will ask about drug use, medical history, mental health history, legal issues, family problems, and previous treatment experiences. It is essential that individuals answer these questions honestly as it is our goal to provide treatment that is centered on their personal goals and history. After this meeting, you will begin attending regular sessions.
Professionals will need to evaluate each individual case by case. However, IOP/PHP is ideal for those who have been through residential treatment or detox and want to continue their treatment or those who cannot commit to long-term residential treatment and have the motivation and transportation to attend the treatment.
Recovery is a lifelong journey that does not end after treatment. At Providence Recovery, it is our goal to help individuals build life skills and fellowship that will provide support long after they have completed our program.
Substance use disorder (SUD) is categorized as a mental health disorder by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition. Most mental health disorders have corresponding medication recommendations, which is why Providence Recovery offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT).
MAT is the use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies to treat substance use disorders, withdrawal symptoms and to reduce the chance of overdose. Almost every other disease defined by the medical community has medications that go along with its treatment process; addiction is no different. That is why Providence Recovery Services offers MAT to individuals in our intensive outpatient or partial hospitalization programs.
Research shows that the combination of MAT and counseling can help prevent relapse and reinforce recovery. MAT can help heal the physical changes in the brain, block the euphoric effects of substances, and relieve cravings. This provides a whole‑patient approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. MAT has been shown to:
Providence Recovery only uses FDA-approved medications such as Suboxone and Vivitrol.
The following medications will act on the receptors in your brain, reducing cravings, preventing withdrawal symptoms and/or blocking the effects of a substance.
Unfortunately, there are many common misperceptions about medication assisted treatment.
This is false. Our professionals use FDA-approved substances which are safer and long-acting to help individuals reduce the risk of relapse.
Addiction is a disease, and, like other diseases, it can be treated with medication.
Addiction is hard to overcome alone. At Providence Recovery, our goal is to help you through your addiction treatment and into recovery by any means necessary. Our program is patient-centered, and we promise to direct your care with informed and evidence-based practices, including MAT if needed.
If an individual completes treatment and uses the same amount of substances they used prior to treatment, it could be life-threatening or fatal. MAT can help an individual decrease their risk of an overdose.
A sober living home helps prepare individuals for life outside of treatment. Providence Recovery is in the process of developing a sober living home that is mindfully suited for individuals who are in early recovery. Residents who stay in our home will go through recovery together, share life experiences and work through life’s issues. In this environment, residents will develop skills that will help them build a productive life within their community.
During this time, our residents will be encouraged to join a 12-step program of their choice, as well as attend regular treatment sessions. While in our sober living home, residents will maintain accountability, build a community of peers, and find hope and fulfillment. Residents will also:
Remain abstinent from drugs and alcohol
Commit to their personalized care plan
Agree to random drug testing
Meet curfew hours
Attend 12-step groups, of their choice
Participate in productive activities
Maintain a weekly schedule (community house meetings, work, treatment sessions, group, house chores)
Maintain the home and personal space (personal and group chores)
Practice accountability in their personal life and treatment
Pay program fees on time
A sober living home is ideal for an individual who wants to transition back into life with the help of a structured environment.
At Providence Recovery, we want to ensure that individuals who come into our care are currently in a positive home environment. If they are not, we encourage them to apply to our sober living home.
