Social distancing, quarantines, and constantly changing health guidelines have made the need for virtual treatment options a must. Offering a virtual intensive outpatient program (IOP) makes sense for many people, especially young adults like your teen. This treatment option has helped hundreds of families just like yours find the right path for their son or loved one. In fact, many families and teens who received treatment in 2020 shared that they would recommend an IOP treatment center to a friend or family member looking for help.
Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center does not yet have a virtual intensive outpatient program for our patients. However, we recognize that this treatment can be effective. Contact Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center to learn more about how other virtual IOP treatments work. Our professional, knowledgeable, and caring treatment team is standing by to answer any questions you have about starting the treatment journey.
How an Online IOP Works
A virtual IOP is an online intensive outpatient program that works for anyone actively seeking treatment and recovery but cannot attend treatment in person. They may need extra help with detox and withdrawal from substance use or looking for a flexible IOP following residential treatment.
Teens in an IOP will receive the same level of personalized care in virtual treatment as they would in person. The most significant advantage of virtual options is their flexibility. Scheduling around school, work, and family obligations establishes consistency. It can also set adolescents up for success in their recovery. Removing the layer of stress that may be associated with attending in person can help the process in the long run.
In addition, a virtual IOP is fully customizable and tailored to each teen’s needs. You can also find comfort in the fact that this online option is completely safe and secure.
An online IOP can also be highly beneficial for those looking to return to their everyday life following residential treatment. They can get this next layer of treatment from the comfort of familiar surroundings instead of thrusting them back into society without support. They can also manage all of the potential triggers that could cause a relapse.
What to Expect from a Virtual IOP
The goals of a virtual IOP are the same as an in-person IOP. It just happens online. In general, IOPs are an essential part of treatment for people who need more than what is available in traditional outpatient treatment. They also offer a next step for those recently completing a residential treatment program.
The goals of a virtual IOP include:
- Learning and implementing coping strategies
- Relapse prevention
- Establishing a reliable support network or re-establish psychosocial supports
- Addressing your teen’s emotional, social, and mental well-being
- Getting young men back to healthy and productive lives that are substance-free
An online intensive outpatient program is here to help you and your teen craft a recovery journey that works best for them. Treatment and recovery services are more accessible than ever with virtual options. These programs provide the opportunity to stay at home while receiving an effective level of care and support through a safe and secure telehealth program.
