WHAT IS INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT TREATMENT?
There are many different types of drug treatment and recovery-oriented resources. We tend to most readily associate addiction recovery with recovery fellowships and inpatient or residential rehabs, but there are certain forms of treatment that exist in-between. In fact, it helps to think of alcohol abuse treatment programs as existing on a spectrum with inpatient on one end and outpatient on the other. Existing somewhere in the middle of that spectrum is intensive outpatient treatment. By some standards, an intensive outpatient program for alcohol abuse represents the best of both worlds, incorporating some of the key features of outpatient care while offering a greater level of treatment that makes it somewhat similar to inpatient care. Although the specifics can vary from one treatment center to the next, most intensive outpatient programs offer treatment for about four days per week with roughly four hours of treatment per day. This is a much more significant amount of treatment than a standard outpatient program, which tends to only offer treatment a few days per week and just a couple of hours each day.
