Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Addiction Treatment Services
in Hoboken, New Jersey

The Guardian intensive outpatient (IOP) program in Hoboken, New Jersey is a new outpatient addiction treatment center located 15 minutes north of Jersey City, just across the water from lower Manhattan. A PATH station is just a few blocks away, making the facility an easy commute for clients from many surrounding urban areas including the New York City metropolitan area. Clients can easily attend work or school while continuing their recovery journey at GIOP. Our clients are able to participate in their day-to-day life commitments while participating in a full schedule of group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy, recovery workshops and a wide range of other clinical services. For some clients we utilize medication assisted treatment to help reduce cravings and prevent relapse.

IOP is seen as a reintegration phase that allows individuals to slowly re-enter their lives while also being supported by a clinical staff and recovery community. We recommend that an individual join the Hoboken Guardian IOP program after completing an inpatient treatment stay. There are instances, however, when the Guardian IOP program is appropriate for someone who is coming straight from a medical detox or has gotten sober independently. Guardian IOP’s admission team can help you decide if the program is a good fit for your individual circumstance. Contact us today if you’d like a complimentary assessment. We can help you determine what pathway will ultimately serve you or your loved one the best.

Hoboken, NJ IOP Substance Use Treatment Program

At Guardian IOP we incorporate the best-researched recovery treatment methodologies available. Our clinical team has decades of combined experience in the field of addiction recovery and has strategically designed the program to help clients build an unshakable foundation for their recovery.

The Essential Parts of the Guardian Intensive Outpatient Program Include:

Individual & Group Therapy – Therapeutic intervention is essential to the maintenance of long-term sobriety. In many cases, those who begin abusing drugs and/or alcohol do so to self-medicate undiagnosed mental health conditions, such as unresolved trauma, depression and anxiety. Therapy sessions help immensely in working through underlying issues that have contributed to the individual’s addictive patterns.

Family therapy & Additional Services for the Immediate Family – Addiction doesn’t just affect the addict or the alcoholic, it deeply affects the mental and emotional well-being of the entire family. We believe that in order for someone to truly heal and maintain sobriety, their family must heal simultaneously. For this reason, we offer family therapy sessions on a regular basis as well as continued support for the close family members of the patient. Family therapy helps each member of the family heal and helps to dismantle unhealthy dynamics that might have contributed to family dysfunction.

Our Drug & Alcohol addiction treatment experience is second to none.

Learn how we can help by speaking with one of our Treatment Advisors today.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) – Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is a method of psychotherapy designed to help addicts and alcoholics overcome detrimental and self-defeating behaviors by changing their behavioral patterns and learn healthy coping mechanisms. We offer DBT as part of our comprehensive therapeutic program.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a type of psychotherapy during which unhealthy thinking patterns and false narratives are challenged, re-framed and ultimately changed. Our team of licensed and experienced therapists works with each individual client to transform their self-destructive tendencies into healthy, efficient and effective coping strategies.

Recovery Program Involvement – Recovery program involvement is a critical component of every aftercare plan. There are many recovery programs to consider, including 12-Step, Celebrate Recovery, Rational Recovery and Smart Recovery. Our IOP encourages clients to attend daily meetings and get active in the recovery community of their choosing.

Relapse Prevention Therapy – In order to prevent relapse and maintain sobriety for years to come, a very specific set of coping mechanisms and relapse prevention tools must be in place. We do all we can to teach our patients relapse prevention strategies so that they consistently feel strong and capable in their recovery.

Medication Assisted Treatment – For some clients we utilize medication assisted treatment (MAT) to help combat cravings and reduce relapse. Some medications we use include Suboxone, Vivitrol and Antabuse.

Our Drug & Alcohol Treatment Services Include

Aftercare Planning – Just like the rest of the addiction recovery experience, aftercare planning is unique to each individual patient and must focus on his or her personal needs and long-term treatment goals. Our case managers work to create individualized aftercare plans that will ensure sobriety long after IOP.

Guided Yoga – We have seen the benefits of a yoga practice for recovering individuals. Not only does in calm the mind, reduce impulsivity and aid self-reflection, it helps keep the body healthy and produces happiness-inducing chemicals such as dopamine and serotonin. Our yoga classes are taught by an instructor who has a clinical background and counseling license.

Life Skills Training – Addiction strips people of basic life skills. Those in the throes of addiction often neglect their financial responsibilities, personal hygiene, nutrition and basic life responsibilities. Over time bad habits become deeply engrained. Individuals just entering recovery often have to re-learn how to manage their lives. We work to reinstill basic life skills in all of our patients so they can become self-sufficient, productive members of society.

Education Assistance – In many instances, drug addiction and alcoholism occur sometime during adolescence or early adulthood. Addiction can have a  detrimental impact on an individual’s school record. If a patient wants to go back to school we help them do so with our education assistance program.

Vocational Training – Addiction also interferes with career opportunities and employment. We help each and every one of our patients discover what it is they want to do, and then we actively help them achieve their personal vocational goals. We also can aid clients with career steps such as resume writing, job applications and interviews.

Benefits of Medication-Assisted Substance Use Treatment in Rehab

At Guardian IOP we believe in the benefits of certain medications when it comes to fighting cravings and preventing relapse. There is ample evidence supporting the fact that medication assisted treatment (MAT) is a beneficial component of an integrated recovery program and that people who utilize MAT early on in recovery stay sober for longer. We combine FDA-approved and heavily researched medications with intensive behavioral therapies and holistic modalities in order to provide our clients with a whole-person approach to recovery. Our main priority is equipping each and every one of our clients with the skills and tools they need to maintain solid sobriety for years to come.

In most cases, MAT is used to treat opioid abuse and dependence. It can also be effective in helping treat severe cases of alcohol dependence. At Guardian IOP we utilize MAT whenever we deem doing so necessary. Not every one of our clients will benefit from this treatment option. In order to determine who is an ideal candidate we conduct an in-depth addiction assessment upon admission to our program. This assessment helps our clinical team determine whether or not medication assisted treatment is going to be beneficial. If a client is already taking medication, it helps us determine whether or not the course should continue at the current dose. Medications we utilize include Suboxone, Vivitrol injections and Antabuse. To learn more about MAT in the context of our overall treatment program, contact us today.
