It’s not easy for someone with an addiction problem to step forward and seek treatment that will finally release them of this burden. However, if someone wants a better drug-free life, only they can make it happen. The good news is, they don’t even have to be hospitalized to do this as patients can now attend treatments through an intensive outpatient program (IOP). If you are seeking intensive outpatient programs in Towson, contact the Bergand Group now.

What is an Intensive Outpatient Program?

An IOP addresses addiction, eating disorders, depression, and more without needing supervision or detox. Moreover, it allows a patient to stay at home and visit a facility for treatment as an outpatient. The Bergand Group specializes in the treatment of substance abuse, chemical dependency, and co-occurring disorders. There are also other clinical services available to those enrolled in IOP treatments, such as Family Therapy, Couples Therapy, Individual Treatment, Evaluations, and Assessments, and more. In addition, the on-site medical staff provides medication management for patients in need.

The difference between outpatient and inpatient care

The main difference between outpatient and inpatient care is the length of time a patient will spend at the facility where their procedure is being done. Inpatient care will require the patient to be admitted to the hospital, where they are having a procedure done, at least overnight, where outpatient care allows the patient to visit the facility, have their procedure done, and then leave.

How the Programs Are Structured at Bergand Group

The programs at Bergand Group are structured as three-hour session Intensive Outpatient treatment programs that include medication assistance if necessary. To best meet the patient’s needs, the intensive outpatient programs in Towson take place days, evenings, and weekends.

Phase II Group Outpatient Treatment: When You or a Loved One Needs to Enter an IOP Program

Clients who admit to having an addiction problem or other disorder issues and want to get help to recover are recommended to join a Phase II Group. These groups serve as a lower level of IOP treatment and are available to help maintain structure and contact with patients.
