Age Specific Programs – At Guardian IOP, we break our outpatient program down into age-specific groups – we offer an older adult program, an adult rehab program and a younger adult program. Men and women in different age brackets tend to have entirely different experiences with substance abuse – and with life in general. breaking our group sessions down by age allows for more focused treatment experience overall.
Older Adult Program – Our older adult program offers a comprehensive therapeutic treatment experience for men and women over the age of 65. This age-specific program focuses on a wide range of topics unique to seniors, including the death of a spouse, transitioning into retirement and dealing with newly emerging chronic health conditions.
Adult Rehab Program – Our adult rehab program is both comprehensive and highly individualized, and caters to men and women who have been suffering at the hands of a substance abuse disorder of any type or severity. This unique program covers age-specific addiction issues ranging from career and financial stability to family structure and mental health.
Younger Adult Program – Our younger adult program was carefully designed to provide younger adults with a safe and supportive environment in which to openly discuss age-specific issues related to substance abuse and dependence. Young adults and adolescents deal with a wide range of experiences that are unique to members of their own specific demographic, such as peer pressure, synthetic drug use and stresses relating to school.
Professionals Program – Our professionals program caters to men and women who work high-powered jobs and who might not be able to step away from their careers entirely for any extended period of time. Our professionals program was designed for healthcare workers, psychologists, pilots, lawyers, CEOs, first responders, police officers and more.
Once groups are broken down by demographic, allowing for a more focused treatment experience, clients will undergo a range of therapeutic services as part of our comprehensive therapy program. Some of the therapeutic programs we offer include:
12 Step Program – 12-step program involvement is fundamental to every effective recovery program. At Guardian IOP, we offer our clients a thorough 12-step program education and require daily 12-step meeting attendance. We also encourage all of our clients to actively work through the 12 steps with a sponsor of their choosing.
Relapse Prevention – Relapse prevention training is essential to the maintenance of long-term sobriety. We teach our clients how to effectively identify all of their personal relapse triggers, and work through these triggers with a combination of healthy coping mechanisms and essential life skills.
Family Therapy – At Guardian IOP, we believe in the importance of family involvement. We offer family therapy sessions to all of our clients and their loved ones, which are facilitated by one of our licensed family therapists and which focus on restoring healthy family functioning. We also offer additional family-oriented resources, like addiction education and a family retreat workshop.
