Convenient Options Available To Overcome Addiction While Maintaining a Normal Daily Routine

Whether you’re looking for immediate help for yourself or researching recovery options so you can encourage a loved one to seek help, Peace Valley Recovery in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, may be the right choice. In addition to a partial hospitalization program, we offer intensive outpatient programs (IOP), combined with general outpatient therapy and other models for supporting ongoing recovery.

What Is an Intensive Program?

Intensive programs vary, but they typically include some similar factors. You attend these programs on a predetermined schedule, but they don’t always require daily participation like partial hospitalization programs do. Instead, IOP programs might involve attendance for a few hours only on weekdays, attendance three times per week or evening sessions to allow those who have daytime obligations, such as work, to seek support for drug or alcohol addiction.

IOP programs involve sessions that are four hours. During those sessions, you participate in a variety of outpatient treatments, including:

  • Individual therapy, which allows you to continue unpacking issues surrounding your recovery in a safe, neutral and supportive environment. Your counselor helps you to navigate recovery and the new challenges that might arise as you get further into this journey.
  • Group therapy, letting you engage with others on similar recovery paths, sharing with them, learning from them and developing confidence in new social and coping skills.
  • Recreational therapy, including unique options such as yoga therapy or art therapy.
  • Medication management and other services to help you continue to stay true to your treatment and recovery plan.

Other FAQs About Treatment

At Peace Valley Recovery, we know that the number of treatment options can be confusing, and choosing the right one for you can seem like a daunting process. The FAQs below help you understand some of the factors that are important when considering IOP, but remember that you don’t have to make this plan alone. Our compassionate and experienced staff works with you, helping you understand all of your options so you can make an educated decision about your future treatment.

The type of addiction treatment you start with depends on your needs and goals for recovery. Sometimes, residential treatment is the best first step because someone requires medically assisted detox that demands 24-hour clinical supervision. In other cases, inpatient options give you the chance to step completely away from your life so you can concentrate solely on recovery without any interruptions or distractions.

But not everyone requires this level of treatment to start recovery. If you have a safe, secure and supportive home environment, for example, or you need support for recovery while you maintain a work or school schedule, intensive treatment may be a good place to start.

IOP is usually not the end of treatment. After graduating from an IOP program, many people go on to general outpatient services such as individual or group therapy. Participation in programs such as AA or NA is also a common option.

You can work with the staff at Peace Valley Recovery to plan for what is called aftercare or follow-up. These are the steps you take next to ensure consistent professional and peer support for your long-term recovery.

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act and other federal laws regarding health insurance coverage, most insurance policies do provide benefits for addiction treatment. Whether or not your plan will cover treatment in an IOP depends on a variety of factors.

  • Your plan must cover IOP as a service. Not all insurance policies do, but if yours doesn’t, it likely covers a different type of treatment.
  • The provider must accept your insurance. You can find out whether Peace Valley Recovery can accept your plan by calling or contacting us online. We’ll do an insurance verification to get more details on your coverage and whether your plan will pay for IOP.
  • The providers must follow requirements for referrals or preauths. This just means if the insurance company requires a referral, you may need to talk to your doctor to get a prescription for addiction treatment services. If a preauth is required, Peace Valley Recover will handle that process.
