IOP greatly helps those going through addiction through the many services we offer. Even though someone has gone through detox and initial treatments to get to this point of recovery, IOP is there to continue treatment and therapy for those who are still at risk of struggling with addiction in their daily lives. Our intensive outpatient program in Atlanta helps treat substance abuse through the various treatments and therapies we provide to help the recovery process.
Some services we provide to help with addiction include the following:
Group therapy aims to encourage patients to share their emotions, thoughts, and experience with others. Through group therapy, patients will be able to learn from other peers who have gone through similar experiences and develop coping skills together. Each group consists of around six to eight people to offer an intimate group experience. Discussions and activities will be held as a group to encourage healthy relationships as well.
Individual therapy is a one-on-one session with one of our licensed therapists. Through individual therapy, patients will discuss and explore solutions and coping mechanisms for addiction and mental health disorders. This will allow them to speak about any problems they face with no fear of shame or judgment. Our therapists are there to help someone lead a life of sobriety and will also provide many skills and techniques to hold a stable life after treatment.
Experiential therapy is a type of activity-based therapy set in both individual and group settings. In this kind of therapy, patients will engage in practical activities and experiences under a therapist’s supervision. This allows individuals to experience a holistic way of healing through various activities, not just through talk therapy. Some activities include music therapy, creative arts therapy, and equine therapy.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of behavior therapy that looks deep into an individual’s negative thoughts and behaviors. The patient will work with a therapist to discover ways in coping with and provide strategies to manage their mental health and behavior. Our aim is to assist our patients in developing positive thoughts and behaviors that will benefit their daily life.
When patients go through our intensive outpatient program, they are able to benefit from these therapies and more. We offer a plethora of therapies to help them gain a life of sobriety. Our treatment and therapies at Empowered will enhance their IOP experience and help them get the necessary help to overcome the risks of relapse.
