What to Expect From Our Intensive Outpatient Program in Elizabethtown, KY

The intensive outpatient program in Elizabethtown, KY that we offer is designed for those individuals who are ready to end their substance abuse and begin establishing their footing in recovery. This specific type of treatment program is most appropriate for those individuals who:

  • Are not dependent on drugs and/or alcohol
  • Have a safe place to live that is conducive to recovery
  • Have already completed higher levels of care, such as inpatient treatment or partial hospitalization
  • Are able to go to and from the facility independently
  • Have time to dedicate to their treatment 

Because detox services or residential care is not offered through our intensive outpatient treatment in Elizabethtown, it is important that patients of this program are in a place in their addiction/recovery where they are physically stable and do not require around-the-clock care. 

Patients enrolled in IOP can expect this program to last anywhere from six to eight weeks, depending on their individual needs. During this time, all patients will be required to devote a large portion of their time to the program, as they will be required to come to the facility on a regular, near-daily basis and spend almost all day there. This program is designed to offer support to those who still need a major treatment presence in their lives, which is why it demands this level of time. Because of this, most patients may not be able to maintain a job or uphold other outside responsibilities even if they are living at home, however, this is usually not a problem as those receiving intensive outpatient treatment are in a place in their recovery where their main focus has to be on their treatment.

When the time comes for patients to complete the intensive outpatient program, they have a handful of options based on what their continued treatment needs are. It is extremely common for patients to step-down into outpatient treatment, which does not require as much of a time commitment but still helps provide professional care and assistance as patients transition back into everyday life. Another option is to complete receiving intensive outpatient treatment in Elizabethtown and continue care outside of the facility with our aftercare support. 

While we offer several different aftercare services, one of our most prominent is the coaching app, which is available for one full year to all patients once they complete their treatment. This app works by keeping patients connected to counselors and coaches who can help them maintain their recovery during that first-year post-treatment. 

The greatest aspect of receiving intensive outpatient treatment is that patients have countless options for how they want to reintegrate back into their daily lives once they have gotten sober.
