- Addiction Recovery Treatment
Addiction is a chronic mental disorder that can be treated. People who seek treatment of addiction deserve to be treated as soon as possible with appropriate services. Providing a structured program for addiction treatment in the community allows clients to maintain sobriety in the context of their existing support system at home and in the community so as not to further disrupt their work and family life. Individuals are entitled to treatment that is humane, protects their dignity and prepares them for ongoing treatment of his/her alcohol or drug dependence, psychiatric and/or medical condition as indicated.
IOP is designed to increase client access to outpatient treatment services for addiction and is typically provided over a 4-6 week period with continued length of stay based on medical necessity criteria.
Relapse Policy: Upon admission to IOP, clients are asked to commit to substantially reduce or eliminate substance use and to abide by the SSTAR Client Rights and Responsibilities Policy. Clients who report use are not automatically discharged from the program but use will be addressed; recovery is a process and it is the philosophy of IOP to meet a client where he or she is at. However, if a client is visibly intoxicated, disruptive, and ill or falling asleep, they will be asked to leave for the day; every effort will be made to find a safe way home for them if necessary. Clients are welcomed to return to IOP when they are functioning better. A review of appropriate level of care will be conducted and referral to detox will be made if appropriate.
