IOP Towson: Approaching Treatment

IOP Towson

Approximately 114 Americans die every day of a drug overdose, while another 6,748 end up in the emergency room. Substance abuse is a real problem that is ravishing the country. Unfortunately, many people don’t seek the treatment they need because they can’t afford to disrupt their daily routine.  Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) may be the solution to this problem, and The Bergand Group can help with its many recovery programs including IOP in Towson MD. 

What is an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?

IOPs are treatment programs for addiction that do not require around-the-clock supervision. These programs allow individuals to come into the facility to receive treatment (usually a combination of therapies and sometimes medical management) and leave to return to their normal lives. This allows people to continue working or going to school, spend time with their families, and maintain a regular routine.

Difference Between Outpatient and Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient treatment requires patients to remain within the facility while they seek help. As a result, inpatient treatment is more expensive and requires time off work.

For patients who simply cannot afford to take a break from work or their responsibilities, IOPs can be the perfect solution. Individuals who are considering an IOP should have a very supportive home environment to reduce the risk of relapse. Additionally, an IOP isn’t generally recommended for people with severe addictions or co-occurring disorders.

For the right candidate, an IOP allows them to get treatment at an affordable rate without flagging their problems to friends, neighbors, and coworkers. Patients get the help they need without explaining an extended absence from home to everyone in their lives.

A professional rehabilitation center will conduct a consultation with a doctor and advise the patient if they are suitable for an IOP.

Recognize the Signs of a Substance Abuse Disorder

There are common signs and patterns one can spot in themselves, or others, that indicate they have a substance abuse addiction and need treatment.

  1. There is a desire to stop using the drug, but they are unable to do so.
  2. A lot of time is spent acquiring, using, or recovering from the drug.
  3. Constant feelings of urges and cravings for the drug.
  4. Inability to maintain regular responsibilities.
  5. The person continues to use the drug, even if it puts them in danger.
  6. A higher dose keeps being needed to achieve the desired high.
  7. Behavioral and social changes, such as giving up previously loved activities.
  8. The development of withdrawal symptoms when not using.

If you or someone you know is experiencing any of the above symptoms, it’s time to seek a form of addiction treatment as soon as possible.
