If you or your loved one has never been through an intensive outpatient program (IOP) before, taking the first step can be a bit overwhelming. The Raleigh House provides support for those suffering from substance abuse, mental health issues, or both. We are different than other IOPs, from our smaller group sessions to our holistic approach to treatment.
Learn more about what to expect throughout our intensive outpatient program to be better prepared to start a new life at The Raleigh House.
On your first day of IOP, we provide an orientation to our therapeutic model. We take the approach of healing the mind and body, and you will learn more about our philosophy during your orientation. You’ll also meet our team of clinicians. Don’t worry about bringing anything with you – we’ll provide a binder with your worksheets and assignments as well as any orientation paperwork.
In a typical week, you will meet in group sessions three times, and each session will last three hours. Each group will generally have eight clients in attendance. During these sessions, you’ll discuss an array of topics as well as complete exercises and workshops.
Additionally, you’ll meet with your primary clinician at least once each week in a private session. The Raleigh House also offers family workshops every Saturday, which we highly recommend attending with your family. During some weeks, if your clinician feels it is appropriate, you may also have a personal family session.
Throughout our intensive outpatient program, you’ll be exposed to a variety of therapies that are proven to increase success rates and help you maintain recovery after IOP. During your group and individual sessions, you’ll be exposed to techniques like coping skills building, mindfulness therapy and an array of others to help you heal.
Even though you won’t live at the Raleigh House, our team takes a holistic approach to make sure you feel your best during recovery. You’ll be educated on important wellness topics like sleep patterns, digestion, and hydration and you will have nutritional consultations that will help you create a pro-recovery diet.
We also can provide medical services during your treatment at our IOP, including drug and alcohol monitoring, PRN neurotransmitter and genetic testing, medication management, and medical/psychiatric screening and assessment.
It’s important to have a strong network of supporters while you go through the healing process. Expect to have peer and alumni support, as well as a variety of on-site meetings where you’ll meet other individuals going through a similar recovery process. We also will help connect you to community groups so you’ll have a supportive network long after IOP.
We accept most insurance on an out-of-network basis, but many of our clients also choose to self-pay or use healthcare financing.
