Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in Tampa

At our Intensive Outpatient Program in Tampa, our structured day and night programs provide a structured environment that enables those with alcohol or drug addiction issues to find the help and support they need while still maintaining employment, continuing school, and living from home. Our Intensive Outpatient Program can take place virtually or in person and clients can attend the program at a minimum of three days per week or a maximum of five days per week.

During treatment, the staff at Tampa Bay Recovery Center helps you understand why you became addicted. Equally important, we help you learn to get sober and stay that way. In an intimate group and individualized setting, clients can find the space to share their struggles, find relief, and create new patterns in their life. Our Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) in Tampa can change the trajectory of your life and help you find recovery.

    What is An Intensive Outpatient Program?

    Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) consist of treatment provided during the day or evening to address alcoholism, addiction, dual diagnosis disorders and mental health issues that do not require round-the-clock supervision. Our IOP program in Tampa often is the next step once someone completes a detox or a residential treatment program.

    Often when a person completes detox or a residential program for addiction, they think treatment is over. In fact, those are the first steps. Because addiction proves to be so tricky, following up initial treatment with outpatient care helps tremendously.

    Our IOP in Tampa Bay takes some of the methods used in detox and residential treatment and expands on them in a real-world setting. IOP zeroes in on understanding how to navigate the early days of recovery including stressors, triggers, and cravings. In this level of care, clients do not have 24/7 care and support like they would in a residential setting. Our IOP program in Tampa gives the opportunity for autonomy and independence.

    What to Expect From Our IOP in Tampa

    When you arrive at Tampa Bay Recovery Center, we make a point to get to know you. Understanding your addiction history and needs allows us to help you set your treatment goals. We assess your physical and mental health. From there, you begin therapy sessions that help you improve your health in both areas. Here’s everything you can expect at our intensive outpatient program:

    Individual Therapy
    Individual therapy sessions are offered once a week in our intensive outpatient program. During this time, you’ll be assigned a primary therapist who will work with you to process triggers, childhood trauma, and maladaptive coping mechanisms, and help set up a relapse prevention plan to help you succeed when you’re not in programming.

    Case Management
    Case management sessions are offered once per week. Most often, a case manager serves as an advocate for your sobriety. Case managers will work with you to help set up services you may need to continue a healthy and sober lifestyle. Case managers help with medications, doctor’s appointments, resume building, employment opportunities, interview skills, housing and more.

    Group Therapy
    Group therapy is one of the most useful tools in our IOP program. Group therapy helps individuals manage and process their feelings around addiction, mental health issues, and past behavior. Group therapy often looks like multiple people sharing their feelings about what they’re currently experiencing. The amount of group therapy varies for each client depending on what program they admit into. Group therapy can be a useful tool in helping find support from other clients who are experiencing the same emotions about early sobriety.

    Medical
    Upon admission into our program, clients meet with our Medical Director or Nurse Practitioner for a medical evaluation and/or medication management. During this collaborative process, clients discuss with our doctor what may be working for them and what may not be working for them. Clients in IOP regularly meet with our Medical staff once every other week.

    Who is a Good Candidate for IOP?

    The first step in treatment for a substance use disorder is detox. After that, a person either moves to residential or outpatient treatment. IOP works well for those who still need focused care but do not need to spend as much time in it as PHP and residential treatment require. Someone who is coming out of a long period of addiction often excels in IOP. Similarly, it can work well for those who have been in treatment before but relapsed. Our intensive outpatient program in Tampa can help many people but is best if you have established the following:

    • Completed detox or a residential program
    • Already have a supportive environment around you
    • Must continue maintaining employment, school, or cannot leave home.
    • You are willing to put forth the effort to stay sober

    What Is the Difference Between PHP and IOP?

    IOP and PHP in Tampa do have something in common. Both take place during the day. People who participate in them may live at home or in sober living homes at night. However, there are some differences between the two types of programs. The first has to do with the time commitments involved and the program schedule. PHP typically takes place five to seven days per week. The person is required to attend treatment for several hours per day.

    IOP in Tampa requires less time from each participant. IOP usually takes place anywhere from three to five days per week. The amount of time that sessions last per day varies from three to five hours. PHP sessions often mirror those that happen in residential treatment. In addition, IOP is more of a step down from that level of intensity. IOP is better suited for someone who is closer to graduating from treatment than those who need PHP.

    Benefits of IOP in Tampa 

    Many benefits come from attending IOP at Tampa Bay Recovery Center. The first is our dual diagnosis treatment approach. About half of those with addiction also suffer from at least one mental illness. Dual diagnosis involves treating both conditions simultaneously. This allows people to make progress in both arenas more quickly.

    IOP in Tampa also helps prepare people for stepping down to regular outpatient treatment. The lessons they learn during IOP last well past the time they leave. If they continue with further, less time-consuming treatment, they often find that IOP helped them form the building blocks for a strong recovery.

    How Long Does IOP Last?

    IOP in Tampa varies in how long it lasts. Each person is different in terms of where they are in recovery. As well, they make progress at different paces. The average IOP treatment lasts at least thirty days. It can extend to ninety days or more. Our team of clinicians will discuss with each person where they are in their progress during the IOP program. This will help them determine how long treatment should last. As with all addiction or dual diagnosis treatment, the longer a person commits to it, the more likely they are to enjoy long-term sobriety.

    Does Insurance Cover IOP?

    Tampa Bay Recovery Center accepts most major insurance for all levels of care, including our IOP. Of course, the scope of your insurance coverage can vary depending on who your provider is and what is spelled out in your plan.

    We realize that determining how you will fund treatment can be a significant concern. We also understand that it can be challenging to unravel the complexities of an insurance policy. The good news is that we are here to help. With your permission, we can contact your insurance provider to confirm your coverage and verify the extent of your benefits.

    Please don’t let financial worries prevent you from contacting our center. A member of our team can answer all your insurance-related questions and clarify any matters you’re unsure about. Once you have complete and accurate information, you will be prepared to make the best decisions for yourself or your loved one.

    What We Offer at Our Intensive Outpatient Program in Tampa

    Our IOP in Tampa provides basic treatment like individual and group therapy. We also offer other types of therapy proven to help people understand how to recover. Additionally, they help many people manage their mental health symptoms. Other types of treatment we offer include:

    • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): EMDR centers on using eye movement and sometimes hand gestures to help treat trauma-related illnesses. Trained clinicians administer several sessions in order to achieve results. Many people find it helps reduce symptoms like flashbacks and anxiety. As a result, issues like PTSD, anxiety, and addiction become less of a problem.
    • Brainspotting: Similar to EMDR therapy, brainspotting helps people who suffer from trauma-related illnesses. It combines talk therapy with focusing on fixed eye positions and movements.
    • Red Light Therapy (RLT): RLT uses low levels of red or near-infrared lights to treat patients. It helps relieve conditions related to the skin and muscle tissues. The result is cells that are able to repair themselves.
    • Holistic Drug Rehab: Millions of people benefit from holistic therapy. It helps people recover from addiction, mental illness, and other conditions. Holistic therapy revolves around the idea that the mind, body, and spirit are all connected. Activities like art therapy, meditation, yoga, and acupuncture can be used to help people become healthier in all of those areas.
    • Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT): MAT provides effective relief for things like withdrawal symptoms and substance cravings. Intensive outpatient programs in Tampa commonly use it to treat addiction to drugs and alcohol. MAT uses a combination of talk therapy and FDA-approved medications.
