IOP in Towson: Debunked

Transcending Addiction

Like many other regions in Baltimore, Towson has seen a rise in substance misuse and addiction. In fact, the town’s rate of drug and alcohol problems is higher than the state average. Subsequently, intensive outpatient programs, or IOP, in Towson, are becoming more popular as people seek help for this growing issue on their journey to recovery.

A Treatable Condition

Substance dependency on alcohol, opiates or even medical drugs can ruin lives by affecting health, finances, and relationships. The positive news is that addiction like all medical conditions is treatable.

One of the first steps in this recovery, however, is recognizing when someone has a problem.

Addiction Signs

Some of the signs to look for that addiction is taking over someone’s life include:

  • Continued use despite health problems
  • Disinterest in hobbies
  • Denial
  • Neglecting appearance

These symptoms may suggest that it’s a good idea to explore the options for a treatment program.

Inpatient vs Outpatient

Treatment for addiction takes place in either an outpatient or inpatient setting. An inpatient program generally involves a medical detox, requiring the patient to live at the facility and abide by the schedule while completing rehabilitation. In an IOP setting, the patient attends the clinic on a part-time basis and continues to live at home and go to work if necessary. Intensive therapy is still carried out on a weekly basis in small group and individual sessions. They also learn skills on how to deal with common obstacles to recovery such as:

  • Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Managing Cravings and Urges

In summary, inpatient is a more intensive option with detox and subsequent therapy. IOP’s are more suited to those who have a milder dependency or have already successfully undergone medical detox and still require effective rehabilitation.
