Guardian Intensive Outpatient Program
Our Locations in Florida and New Jersey

Substance abuse and dependence affects people in different ways. Because of this, addiction recovery should never be a one-size-fits-all process, and should always be individualized to fit the unique needs and requirements of each specific client. Some individuals require an intensive and long-term program of care – this is generally the case when the substance abuse disorder is moderate or severe. Other clients might require a less intensive level of clinical care, or a level of care that includes more flexibility and a greater amount of personal freedom. An intensive outpatient treatment program is an effective form of addiction treatment in which clients visit the treatment facility for several hours at a time, typically five days a week (Monday through Friday). IOP programs are more intensive than outpatient programs, though they allow a greater amount of flexibility seeing as clients return home every evening.

At Guardian IOP we offer Intensive Outpatient treatment programs in Florida and New Jersey. Our programs are comprehensive and individualized, and consist of a combination of individual therapy, group therapy and family therapy as well as additional recovery-related services like 12-step program immersion, relapse prevention training and employment assistance. Our IOP program generally lasts for three full months, and are well-suited for men and women who have less severe substance abuse disorders, no underlying mental health concerns and solid support systems in place.

  • 12-step program education and immersion – We require our clients to attend off-site 12 step meetings on a daily basis while actively working through the 12 steps with a sponsor.
  • Demographic-specific programming, including gender-specific and age-specific treatment – Our IOP program is broken down by gender and by age, allowing for a more focused treatment experience.
  • Thorough and individualized aftercare planning – While every aftercare plan will be individualized, most plans for continuing care include a continuation of 12-step program involvement, a continuation of therapy and psychiatric services whenever necessary.
  • Vocational training – We teach our clients how to build-our professional resumes, interview for jobs and choose a job that is recovery-appropriate.
  • Educational opportunities – Many of our clients wish to take advantage of the educational opportunities unique to Southern Florida – we encourage our clients to finish schooling if they wish to do so, and help them apply and stay committed.
  • Fitness programs and nutritional services – In order to maintain sobriety, clients must learn to take care of themselves comprehensively, taking care of their physical bodies as well as their mental and emotional well-being.

The key difference between residential treatment and an IOP is flexible scheduling and a greater amount of personal freedom. Clients are able to return home every night once treatment concludes, and if they have jobs or other personal obligations, IOP can be scheduled around those obligations. For people in recovery, IOP restores a sense of normalcy and the return to a daily schedule and routine without sacrificing individualized, intensive treatment.

Our Delray Beach, Florida location is centrally located, and Southern Florida itself is conducive to comprehensive healing and rich in recovery-related resources. IOP allows clients to explore these resources on their own time, taking advantage of the numerous daily 12-step meetings and recovery-oriented support groups throughout the area.

  • 12-step program involvement – Individuals who participate in our IOP program are required to attend at least one 12-step meeting every day, while actively working through the 12 steps with a sponsor.
  • Aftercare planning – We help each client develop a personalized and integrated plan for continuing care.
  • Vocational training – We help and still clients with the skills they need to obtain a job and successfully work full-time or part-time.
  • Educational training and assistance – If a client wishes to return to school and either complete his or her GED or a higher level of education, we provide the resources necessary to make this happen.

The main difference between residential treatment and IOP is an increased amount of flexibility and personal freedom. We understand that not everyone can commit to a three month inpatient treatment program. Some of our clients have dependents or prior obligations that they cannot completely step away from. In cases like these, IOP is an ideal option – it is always better to receive some level of clinical care than no treatment at all. However, we always recommend that our New Jersey IOP program serves as part of a comprehensive continuum of care, acting as an additional resource for those who have already completed inpatient treatment.

    Why is IOP Necessary?

    It is not uncommon for men and women who recently completed a long-term program of residential care to eagerly anticipate a return to normal day-to-day life. However, entering into an IOP program upon inpatient treatment program completion is necessary. Once an individual completes inpatient treatment, he or she will begin implementing the life skills and coping mechanisms learned and inpatient treatment in a real life setting. IOP provides individuals who are new to sobriety with the opportunity to process the challenges and hurdles that go hand-in-hand with early recovery in a supportive environment, among their peers.

    Our Simple Admissions Process

    If you or someone you love has been suffering at the hands of a mild substance abuse disorder and is in need of additional support and a less intensive level of clinical care than is provided by traditional inpatient treatment, our IOP program is an ideal solution. Our admissions process is simple and straightforward. Whether you have recently completed a higher level of care or you are looking for addiction treatment that allows a higher level of personal freedom than residential rehab, give us a call today 24/7 at (855) 517-1871 for more information.
