Social distancing and orders to stay home are in place to try to contain the spread of COVID-19. While these circumstances can be stressful for the communities in recovery who depend on their networks for support, we at The Raleigh House believe your recovery can not only continue with distance, but thrive.
This may be the best time for you to continue your addiction treatment. We are now offering a virtual intensive outpatient program (IOP) to help people recover from substance abuse at home, while adhering to all HIPAA standards and protecting your privacy.
This is an important time in our world, and how we deal with this opportunity is going to shape our communities for generations to come. Let’s band together, support one another and help each other grow and prosper.
What You’ll Get Out of Online IOP
It’s important to note that virtual IOP isn’t for everyone. It’s best suited for those who do not need our full continuum of care and are deemed clinically and medically appropriate before admittance.
But if you’re coming from residential treatment or if we determine that you can be directly admitted into intensive outpatient treatment, our online program offers 3 key benefits:
1. Virtual IOP is Remote and Secure.
Through virtual IOP, you will receive the same outpatient treatment that you would under “normal” circumstances. The key difference is you’ll be tuning in from the safety and security of your own home. This will help protect you from any health risks while giving you the support and sense of community we all need. Receiving treatment from the comfort of your own home can help relieve any stress or anxiety and keep you focused on what matters – your recovery.
2. Virtual Addiction Treatment Promotes Social Distancing.
As we all try to get through the COVID-19 outbreak together, the CDC recommends social distancing to help eliminate the spread from person to person. However, we all need to interact with other people and be involved with friends, families, and communities; it’s human nature. No circumstance should stop us from supporting each other! Fortunately, virtual IOP can help build and strengthen your circle during this time. It lets you practice and maintain social distancing to keep yourself and others safe, and it also helps you connect with likeminded people you care about.
3. Online IOP Helps You Build Recovery Connections.
A key component of addiction treatment and recovery is your support network. Connecting with others who are also building new, healthy relationships are what motivate you toward a healthy, thriving life. Virtual IOP gives you the ability to connect with others from home. Through our online intensive outpatient program, you’ll be able to virtually connect with our therapists and fellow clients to give you the full outpatient treatment experience you need and want.
Virtual IOP at The Raleigh House
At The Raleigh House, our virtual outpatient treatment program follows the same format as our in-person program does. During your virtual treatment sessions, you’ll participate in individual and group therapy to help you understand your addiction and connect with a community.
You’ll learn mindfulness-based and process-oriented therapies to help you focus and give you resources and coping skills to work on any mental health conditions you may struggle with. You’ll also acquire nutrition-based information that will allow you to practice a pro-recovery diet at home!
While you may not be able to attend in person, virtual IOP gives you a unique opportunity to receive addiction treatment at home and build a powerful support network that will stay with you.
