people enjoying intensive outpatient program

Life doesn’t always allow for a month away from home and responsibilities. We believe that even if you aren’t able to do our residential program, you should still have access to an effective addiction recovery program. Driftwood Recovery’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) allows you to tend to work, family and other responsibilities while receiving the level of care you need to overcome your addiction.

Intensive Outpatient Program vs. Inpatient

Inpatient programs require clients to live at the treatment center while in the early stages of recovery. Many individuals who choose inpatient recovery do so because they need the rigid structure and timeline that an inpatient program provides.

While an inpatient program is the only course of action for some, it’s a significant commitment of time and resources. Our intensive outpatient program is still based strongly on creating structure, but allows clients to go home in the evenings and take care of outside obligations.

Types of Treatment that Intensive Outpatient Recovery Offers

Just because you aren’t living on the premises doesn’t mean you won’t receive the same level of care and options for therapy. Driftwood Recovery still offers all of the following options to those participating in the intensive outpatient program:

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) — ACT is an empirically based therapeutic approach that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies with commitment and behavioral changes strategies, to increase psychological flexibility and improve motivation.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) — CBT is a therapeutic approach that is structured, present oriented and directed toward solving current problems by teaching skills and strategies to modify dysfunctional thinking and behaviors.
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) — DBT is an evidence based behavioral therapy approach that offers skills and approaches to improve functioning in four domains; Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Distress Tolerance and Emotion Regulation.
  • Dual Diagnosis Treatment — Dual Diagnosis is a treatment approach that addresses a client substance abuse disorder while simultaneously addressing their mental health disorder.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) — EMDR has shown to be useful in resolving traumatic experiences, enabling healing from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.
  • Experiential Therapy
  • Family Therapy
  • Group Therapy
  • Individual Therapy
  • Pain Management Strategies

While in our intensive outpatient program, you’ll spend portions of your day at our Driftwood, Texas location attending therapy sessions and learning how to cope with pain and substance abuse addiction. Our 85-acre campus is the ideal place to begin recovery. We offer aquatic therapy, meditation, yoga, and more on top of our base individual and group therapy sessions.

Your individual therapy sessions will help you learn more about yourself so you can understand how your addiction came about, and what you can do to stay clean and sober in the future. You’ll also participate in group therapy, where you can learn more about others’ stories and how they’re working to overcome addiction and chronic pain.

You’ll be free to go home in the evenings to spend time with family and attend to your responsibilities after a half or full day of therapeutic addiction recovery treatments. For this type of treatment, you need to make sure that your home is a safe, substance free place to go back to before you begin the program. We’ll walk you through those steps when you begin.
