According to an article published by the Journal of Teaching in the Addictions, research shows that men and women who are in treatment for substance abuse typically have low employment rates and poor personal work histories. Regardless of their education level, they have a more difficult time maintaining gainful employment. When unemployment persists, rates of relapse increase. Because of this, providing adequate Vocational Training services is essential to relapse prevention and increases the likelihood of long-term sobriety after clinical treatment. At Guardian IOP we are dedicated to providing our clients with the most integrated and comprehensive care available, and our team of dedicated professionals has carefully developed a program of outpatient treatment that allows clients to explore vocational opportunities, apply for the job of their dreams and continue achieving their personal career goals. Regardless of what the vocational needs of any given client look like, we are available to help.
