Guardian Intensive Outpatient Program
Heroin Rehab Program
Over the course of the past several years, rates of heroin abuse and addiction have been on the steady incline. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the rates of overdose deaths involving heroin have also been on the rise. There were 14,996 heroin related overdose deaths reported in 2018 alone. Comparatively, there were 12,990 overdose deaths related to heroin in 2015. The majority of deaths involving heroin are driven by the use of fentanyl, a potent opioid narcotic that is between 50 and 100 times more powerful than morphine. According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, of the 20.5 million Americans over the age of 12 who suffered at the hands of a substance use disorder in 2015, 591,000 had a substance use disorder that directly involved heroin. It is currently estimated that around 23% of men and women who try heroin will end up developing an opioid addiction within a short period of time. This specific chemical substance is highly habit forming – especially when it is used intravenously. Despite increasing rates of heroin abuse and addiction, the vast majority of men and women who suffer from a diagnosable substance use disorder will not end up seeking or receiving the professional care they need. This is not because the resources are not readily available to them. It is often because they believe they cannot afford the cost of inpatient addiction treatment, or they have personal responsibilities which they cannot entirely step away from for months at a time. It is important to note that inpatient treatment is not the only treatment option when it comes to heroin abuse and dependence. While it is highly recommended that anyone who has been struggling with a heroin abuse disorder commits to a multi-phased program of addiction recovery, outpatient treatment can serve as a standalone solution in some situations.
At Guardian IOP we have developed a comprehensive and integrated outpatient treatment program that offers a higher level of flexibility and freedom while providing clients with intensive and effective clinical care. Our outpatient program meets between three and four times a week, and is held for several hours every it meets – either in the morning or in the evening, depending on the needs of the client. We follow intensive day treatment guidelines, and provide an outpatient program that is comparable to a traditional residential program in the services we provide and the effectiveness of these services. For more information on our outpatient treatment program and to learn whether or not this level of clinical care is appropriate for you and your personal needs and requirements reach out to us today, we are available to help you 24/7.

What Is Outpatient Heroin Rehab?
Outpatient heroin rehab offers intensive therapeutic intervention, addiction education, 12-step program involvement and relapse prevention training in a small, therapeutic group setting. This level of clinical care offers clients a greater amount of flexibility and personal freedom, while providing them with the therapeutic intervention they need to maintain sobriety. Outpatient treatment focuses on a wide range of recovery related topics in group therapy sessions, and allows clients to meet with the therapist one-on-one at least once a week. Most outpatient programs meet several times a week for between 10 and 12 hours a week, and take place over the course of a three-month period of time – or longer (up to a year, in some cases, depending on the personal needs of the client). Clients are able to maintain a more normal daily routine while experiencing a greater amount of accountability. This level of clinical care is ideal for any individual who has a mild addiction, who is looking for a more affordable treatment option and who has access to a social circle of support outside of treatment.

Is Outpatient the Best Option for Me?
Our comprehensive and highly individualized outpatient treatment program is likely an ideal option if any of the following circumstances or situations apply to you:
- You have recently completed a higher level of clinical care, including medically monitored detox and inpatient treatment, and you are looking for additional support and accountability as you transition back into fully independent living.
- You are not using heroin intravenously, and you have only been using the chemical substance for a very short period of time – you want to nip the problem in the bud, so to speak, but a higher level of clinical care is not necessarily required.
- You are not currently insured through any health insurance provider, and you cannot afford to pay the out-of-pocket cost associated with long-term residential treatment.

Call us today and let’s get you started on the path to a better you.
- You are the primary caretaker of one or more dependents, and you cannot commit to a long-term program of care and step away from this personal responsibility entirely for any extended period of time.

- You have a job or career that you cannot step away from for any extended period of time.
Many men and women who are suffering at the hands of a mild or moderate heroin abuse disorder make the decision to enter into outpatient treatment because of pre-existing obligations or because of their current financial situation. However, because heroin addiction can progress so rapidly, it is generally recommended that outpatient treatment serves as part of a multi-phase continuum of clinical care.
