Intensive Outpatient & Partial Hospitalization Program

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:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): is a psychological therapy that encourages individuals to change maladaptive thoughts to change their behaviors. Individuals learn about coping skills, which helps them acknowledge and change those maladaptive behavior patterns.
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT): is a psychological therapy that focuses on interpersonal effectiveness, mindfulness, distress tolerance and emotion regulation.
  • Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MBCBT) is a modified form of CBT that incorporates mindfulness practices like meditation and breathing to encourage individuals to break away from the negative thought patterns that can cause them to relapse.
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI): is a form of counseling that helps individuals think and talk through any insecurities they may be feeling.
  • Trauma-Informed Care (EMDR): Individuals going through treatment may have experienced trauma. Trauma-informed care focuses on increasing adaptive behaviors, coping mechanisms and tools for healing in a non-threatening environment.
  • Individual Therapy: Individuals who are in treatment will receive two one-on-one therapy sessions a week.
  • Group Therapy: A trained counselor will guide interactions in a group setting that will encourage reflection, accountability, empathy and developing positive communication skills.
  • Family Therapy: Addiction can affect everyone. Family therapy allows family members to learn about addiction, signs of relapse and how best to support themselves and their loved ones in recovery.
  • Equine Therapy: a form of experiential therapy that involves interactions between patients and horses. Activities such as grooming, feeding, haltering and leading a horse are supervised by a mental health professional with the support of a horse professional. The goal of equine therapy is to help the patient develop needed skills and attributes like emotional awareness and stress tolerance.

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:

What should I expect when going to an intensive outpatient or partial hospitalization program?

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.

Is an intensive outpatient or partial hospitalization program right for me?

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.

Am I recovered if I go through an intensive outpatient or partial hospitalization program?

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.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

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:

  • Improve an individual’s success
  • Increase retention in treatment sessions
  • Increase an individual’s chance of receiving and maintaining employment
  • Decrease an individual’s substance use
  • Decrease the chance of relapse

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.

Suboxone is a partial opiate agonist that prevents cravings and uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Without uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms, a person can focus on other aspects of recovery. There is a 75 percent to 80 percent relapse rate for those that stop taking Suboxone compared to those that choose to use it as one of the tools to fight addiction.

Vivitrol is once a month medication is another safe and effective tool that blocks the opiate receptor. Vivitrol discourages an individual from using opiates as it would cause immediate withdrawal. For those whose primary choice of substance use alcohol, it can reduce cravings.

Unfortunately, there are many common misperceptions about medication assisted treatment.

 

MAT replaces the original addiction with another.

This is false. Our professionals use FDA-approved substances which are safer and long-acting to help individuals reduce the risk of relapse.

MAT is a morally wrong choice.

Addiction is a disease, and, like other diseases, it can be treated with medication.

If an individual uses MAT, they are weak and cannot overcome addiction by themselves.

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.

MAT can increase the risk of an overdose.

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.

Sober Living Home

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:

  • Find a job that is conducive to their recovery.
  • Locate housing once their treatment period is over.
  • Mend broken relationships with family and friends.
  • Work on transitioning into an unstructured environment after treatment.

In our facility, residents will be expected to:

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.

Our intake process is simple:

  1. Inform our addiction professional that you are interested in sober living.
  2. Complete a pre-screening interview with the house manager.
  3. Meet with current residents of the house. During this time, you may ask current residents any questions you have about sober living.

Once accepted, the house manager will coordinate a move-in time. Items that individuals are permitted to bring include bed and bathroom lines, toiletries, cell phones, cars (if applicable), any prescribed medications (approved by house manager), insurance cards, clothing (formal and informal), as well as initial groceries.
