Intensive Outpatient Rehab Program

Intensive Outpatient Rehab Program Austin Texas

Here in Austin, Texas, our center offers an intensive outpatient rehab center. We are famous for the evidence-based treatment models we deliver in a family-style environment. We understand that it’s tough for the clients to drop off from their routine activities and focus solely on their health, which is why people here in Texas pay little attention to substance use disorder treatment.

The thing that makes an intensive outpatient rehab program stand out among other programs is that an individual’s routine is not disturbed. Intensive outpatient programs are a bit more time consuming as compared to regular outpatient programs. This program is best suited for those whose addiction is not that severe and does not require dual diagnosis addiction treatment programs.


The first and leading thing to be kept in mind while taking the start to mark someone eligible for an intensive outpatient rehab program is that ‘the individual must have a safe and supportive home.’

The friends and family may be caring enough to uplift the individual during the rehab process, i.e., not looking down upon a person undergoing the addiction treatment, motivating him for the goal he’s after, and treating him as naturally possible.

From a safe home or environment, we mean an environment where no triggers exist for abuse of the particular substance, as the spurs lead an individual towards a relapse. We, too, make an individual go through a drug detox program before entering an intensive outpatient rehab program, if needed, here in Austin, TX.

If you and your loved ones are suffering from an addiction, a promising treatment option for you is going for an intensive outpatient rehab program only if you’re sure that the support groups as friends and family you have, is empathetic enough to provide you or your loved ones with good care.



In Austin, our intensive outpatient rehab center uses a science-based approach to recovery. The center focuses on exploring the root cause of addiction and healing the mind and the body. This is the very reason that people who weren’t recovered in the past. Now sees a higher rate of success in IOP. Many addiction treatment programs are offered at Outpatient Austin to match your lifestyle and transition after the residential programs.

The intensive outpatient programs are more focused upon getting to know you to design more of a personalized and individualized treatment program. For creating a recovery plan, the clinical and program directors meet with the clients. A good recovery plan consists of several therapies and services according to the individual’s conditions under observation.

As a part of an intensive outpatient rehab program in Austin, TX, you may participate in the following treatment programs;



The more beneficial a program is, the more it will people follow it. An IOP has many benefits, such as strengthening family relations, maintaining personal responsibilities, and staying private last but not least. Outpatient Austin is fully aware of the pull that the demanding jobs these days have and the family responsibilities and liabilities one has at home.

 It requires a lot of time in an IOP to rebuild or strengthen family relationships through counseling, but it is still a useful tool. You’ll be under intensive care, and at the same time, you can enjoy spending the nights and weekends at home. Our rehab programs revolve around the prevention of relapse, promoting life skills, and offering support groups.

The location and the services provided by a rehab center are what attract us in our selection. Choosing Austin for intensive outpatient therapy is beneficial, either way, as Austin is the state capital of TX. We are providing better services from others. We do have a range of outdoor fun and recreational activities as well. Some are mentioned as follow;

  • Going Underground into one of the many caves in Austin
  • Spending a day on the famous ladybird lake
  • Going to Barton springs pool for cooling off
  • Taking a hike through a tropical forest over here
  • picnicking atop the famous Mount Bonnell
  • Going for a Yoga hike


  • Affordable Yet Effective Therapy:

The false fact that expensive therapies are more effective than less expensive or affordable ones has covered the unconscious of almost everyone in the world. However, this is not necessary, as we can see in an IOP. It is not as expensive as other addiction treatment programs, but still, it offers you some excellent results. The costs of food and overnight stays are not included in this program; that’s why this is less expensive than residential or inpatient rehab programs.

However, we won’t take a person with a chronic addiction in our intensive outpatient rehab program because we can’t stop the triggers for them in an IOP, and the cravings they have for substance abuse can’t be dealt with.

  • It Works Around Your Schedule:

An outpatient program is always very flexible in terms of timings. Before devising your treatment plan, we look at the routine you have, and we do try our best not to disturb it. e.g., if you are a student, we won’t force you to enter rehab during schooling. We will try to schedule your meetings at times when you are free.

However, if the addiction is severe, the client has to compromise upon his daily responsibilities. If the severity is above moderate, then he can’t continue the IOP thing.

  • Staying in Touch with Family and Friends:

Unlike inpatient rehab programs, you can keep your support network and family close at hand. And this is a beneficial practice in the journey towards leaving an addiction. But the family members and friends with whom you meet must be supportive, motivating, and empathetic.

However, suppose the addicted person has terrible company. In that case, it’s better to stay away from that, because instead of doing any good, they will provide triggers, the individual will start craving, and this may lead him towards a relapse.

  • A More of a Private Program:

If you don’t want your friends and coworkers to know about your visits to the rehab for getting rid of the addiction, then an outpatient program is the best option for you.


An outpatient rehab program varies significantly in intensity, time scale, and format. The services, too, differ significantly.

Ignoring the small differences, let’s talk about the three main types of outpatient programs;

  • Day Programs
  • Intensive Outpatient Programs
  • Continuing Care



Day programs provide structured therapy with an enhanced level of care. You’ll need to be available for the meetings for five to seven days a week in a day program.

Between meetings, you’ll either return to your residence or move to some assisted housing. Most of the time, outpatients return to their homes.

Each time you visit the rehab, you’ll go through some form of counseling or psychotherapeutic sessions or sessions with a psychiatrist. It may be individual counseling. The sole focus is upon knowing thyself or counseling in a group setting that serves many purposes: creating harmony, creating a feeling of acceptance, and working the communication skills out.

You might also find some of the treatments on offer and will be provided with some form of adjunct therapy like art or music therapy or any other holistic therapy. Though there are many variables, regular attendance and commitment to be sober are constants.

Although Day programs provide the clients with some good care and support, it still consumes a lot of time. You can not strictly follow your daily routine as you have to take some time off your schooling or job, for example, if you have a job, you won’t be able to continue it in the same way as required, as you have to visit the rehab, 5 to 7 days a week and they too for up to 7 hours.



Our intensive outpatient rehab program here at Austin, TX, may seem similar to others in many aspects as the essential core concept is the same. But we stand out among others as we provide something extra in the form of gender-specific and holistic addiction treatment programs.

We provide an ideal environment for recovery as our biggest goal, then strive for it practically, not just in the head. We help people break the barriers and recover to lead a normal, sober, and well-deserved life. Men and women may share an addiction, but their experiences are incredibly varied. This is why we provide different programs for both men’s recovery program and women’s recovery program.
