A Thorough Introduction to the 12 Steps
At Guardian IOP we believe that ongoing 12-step program involvement is essential to the continuation of sobriety. There is ample evidence supporting the fact that men and women who stay actively involved in Alcoholics Anonymous after treatment have significantly lower chance of relapse than those who do not. We thoroughly introduce clients to each of the 12 steps and the principle behind that step, while requiring daily off-site meeting attendance and active engagement in stepwork.
Expert-Led Health and Wellness Workshops
In order to provide the most comprehensive clinical care available, we regularly bring in experts in the realm of Health and Wellness to lead intensive, hands-on group sessions. Some of the recovery-related topics covered include the medical aspects of substance use, breathwork, mindfulness meditation, reiki, working through grief and loss, HIV and Hepatitis C education and overdose prevention. Our goal is to bring in as many specialists as possible, providing our clients with integrated care while introducing them to a range of effective holistic treatment methods.
In many cases, clients who are actively engaged in intensive outpatient treatment will simultaneously reside in a sober living house. With so many housing options in both Delray Beach, Florida and New Brunswick, New Jersey, it is important that you know what to look for. If you are currently looking for a sober home in either of these two areas (or any surrounding areas), you can expect to be assisted through the sober living placement process. At Guardian IOP we work closely with many reputable, gender-specific sober homes along the East Coast.
A Plan for Continuing Care
It is important to note that recovery is a lifelong journey, although clinical treatment does eventually conclude. In order to maintain success in sobriety, it is crucial that you have a personalized plan for continuing care in place. Our treatment team will help you develop this plan, and will help to keep you accountable by checking in regularly and encouraging participation in our alumni events. Most aftercare plans include a continuation of daily 12-step program involvement, continued one-on-one therapy sessions and ongoing psychiatric services whenever necessary.
