Guardian IOP
Intensive Outpatient Addiction Treatment Program

Our Intensive Outpatient addiction treatment program offers men and women of all ages with flexible clinical care – a level of care that is slightly less intensive than residential inpatient treatment, while offering structured and thorough healing in a concentrated and highly involved environment.

Our Intensive Outpatient Treatment can either serve as a vital step on a long-term continuum of clinical care or as a stand-alone treatment option, depending on the unique needs of each individual client. Clients are granted a higher level of personal freedom, and with that freedom comes a greater amount of personal responsibility. While outpatient treatment programs are often a beneficial part of the long-term process of addiction recovery, outpatient as a stand-alone treatment option is not ideal for everyone. For example, men and women who are suffering at the hands of a moderate or severe substance abuse disorder will undeniably benefit more from an inpatient treatment program. Individuals who have personal obligations and responsibilities that they cannot neglect for months at a time, on the other hand, might choose a less intensive – and equally as effective – level of clinical care.

At Guardian IOP our Intensive Outpatient centers in Florida and New Jersey were carefully developed by our experienced team of clinical, medical and therapeutic professionals with accommodation and flexibility in mind. Our unique and comprehensive approach to addiction recovery focuses on healing the physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual implications of substance abuse, and works to heal clients on an authentic and lasting level.

In the outpatient stage of treatment, clients experience a good deal of freedom compared to the beginning phases of treatment in the continuum of care. With that freedom and flexibility comes greater responsibility. Since our goal is to help our clients achieve and maintain long-term sobriety, we expect everyone–clients and staff alike–to adhere to higher standards of excellence.

Intensive outpatient program can be beneficial in an individual’s recovery journey, but it isn’t for everyone. It’s an ideal type of treatment for an individual who has completed residential treatment and has safe, supportive, sober living arrangements, whether that’s with family or with sober housing.

At Guardian IOP we offer programs of Intensive Outpatient Treatment located in Delray Beach, Florida and in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Our integrated program of intensive therapeutic care serves men and women of all ages and personal backgrounds living on the East Coast – or anywhere else across the United States – and looking to begin an entirely new way of life. The Guardian Intensive Outpatient program offers a gender-specific and multidisciplinary treatment approach for adults suffering at the hands of a substance disorder of any severity. Guardian IOP offers innovative treatment options for clients who do not require residential care and for those in need of continuing care following completion of inpatient treatment. Our program was designed by a team of professionals with years of experience in the field of addiction and mental health. Our highly-skilled team provides clients with state-of-the-art and highly effective treatment methods by utilizing an integrated approach through the use of various proven therapeutic modalities and effective holistic methodologies.

Individualized Treatment and Continuing Care

Substance abuse is a highly individualized disease, and no two experiences will be exactly the same. For this reason, every treatment experience must be custom-tailored and highly personalized in order to be as effective as possible. There are many varying types of substance abuse treatment, each with the same common goal – to help individuals overcome addiction long-term and go on to lead the happy and fulfilling lives they deserve. In the majority of cases, clinical addiction treatment will be a multi-phased process, one that begins with medically monitored detox and concludes with long-term aftercare. At Guardian IOP, we generally suggest that a multi-phased continuum of care is closely adhered to regardless of the severity of the substance abuse disorder and the presence of any underlying, contributing factors. However, Intensive Outpatient can be a successful stand-alone treatment option in some cases – for example, if an individual is the sole caretaker of dependents, or if he or she cannot step away from a high-powered career for an extended period of time.

In some instances, a substance abuse disorder is not yet severe or life-threatening, and can be effectively treated with a comprehensive IOP program rather than a more traditional and involved program of inpatient treatment. If you are unsure whether or not this level of clinical care will most benefit your personal needs and individualized treatment requirements, give our Treatment Advisors a call for more detailed information.

The Outpatient Services We Offer

Therapeutic outpatient treatment services we offer include:

  • Individual and group therapy sessions – group therapy sessions occur every time the IOP group meets (roughly five times a week) and individual therapy sessions take place at least once a week (more frequently depending on the size of the group)
  • Numerous proven and effective therapeutic approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy
  • Family therapy sessions and family-oriented resources
  • Case management services, allowing for more individualized care and the development of personalized aftercare plans
  • 12 step program education and immersion
  • Age-specific and gender-specific treatment options – all IOP groups are gender-specific, allowing for more focused clinical care
  • Life skills training, which focuses on the development and implementation of vital life skills including everything from budgeting and working towards financial independence to healthy communication skills and coping mechanisms
  • Relapse prevention training, which is geared towards helping clients identify and effectively work through personal relapse triggers
  • Nutritional education, which focuses on the vital role of healthy eating in addiction recovery and teaches clients which foods to choose in order to facilitate mental and physical healing, and how to prepare these foods
  • Fitness programs, which typically include holistic treatment methods like yoga
  • Vocational training, which includes resume building, interview skills and choosing a long-term and recovery-appropriate occupation
  • Taking advantage of educational opportunities/returning to school

Is Outpatient Treatment Right For Me?

Intensive Outpatient is an ideal option for  you if:

  • You have recently completed medical detox and residential treatment and you are looking to take the next logical step in a long-term curriculum of continuing care.
  • A long-term stay in a residential treatment program is not a viable option for one of any number of reasons, like current financial capability, caring for dependents or work-related obligations.
  • The substance abuse disorder is not severe, and you are simply interested in taking care of substance misuse issues before they progress and develop into full-blown addiction.
  • There are no underlying mental health conditions present. Inpatient, dual diagnosis treatment is often necessary for men and women who suffer at the hands of a co-occurring disorder like anxiety, depression or post-traumatic stress disorder. If the substance use issue is situational and has been short-lived, IOP is likely an effective stand-alone treatment option.

Benefits of Our IOP

For some clients and their families, outpatient programs may be more cost-effective than residential treatment. Some insurances cover outpatient programs or require clients to complete an outpatient program before they provide coverage for residential treatment. Guardian IOP Treatment Advisors are well-versed in helping clients understand their insurance benefits. Please feel free to contact us for assistance in clarifying your coverage and payment options.

Guardian IOP is intensive for a reason, but we offer more flexibility than residential treatment. Meetings, sessions and workshops are scheduled throughout the day and evening, which may allow you more time to continue your education, work or be with your family.

The exact amount of time spent at Guardian IOP each week varies from person to person. Depending on a client’s specific needs and schedule, he or she could spend anywhere from 10 to 30 hours a week participating in various programming. Most Guardian IOP clients attend sessions 3-5 days a week in 3-4 hour blocks.

Additionally, Guardian IOP enables clients to experience real-time results. Clients have the unique opportunity to meet other people with similar experiences and long-term goals, and they can put their new skills to use every day when they leave our facility and return home.
