At Wellness Counseling Vida Entera, we work in residential addiction treatment, treating those who struggle with drug and alcohol use disorders. We also are affiliated with a network of licensed treatment facilities with intensive outpatient centers in California that provide continued care to clients. The intensive outpatient program (IOP) can be the next stage of treatment after a stay at Wellness Counseling Vida Entera. We oftentimes strongly recommend our clients enroll in an intensive outpatient program in Lake Elsinore, CA, as it increases the chances of successfully reentering society.

What Are the Differences Between Inpatient and Outpatient Treatments?

Residential programs and intensive outpatient programs in Lake Elsinore, CA have different functions. A residential program is designed to find the root cause of an individual’s drug or alcohol addiction, and then teach that individual the skills to overcome their addiction. The client stays overnight for a recommended amount of time in our drug-free center. This is a great option for those with severe addictions and homes that are not conducive to recovery.

An intensive outpatient program allows individuals to implement in real-life situations the skills learned in inpatient programs. Wellness Counseling Vida Entera partners with intensive outpatient centers in California because we know that our clients can have a greater chance of sustained recovery after participating in an IOP.

Importance of the Levels of Care

There are some people who enter into a drug and alcohol detox or residential program only and find themselves relapsing over and over again. While these programs are vital for recovery, outpatient programs play their part in strengthening recovery and reducing the risk of relapse.

Relapse is a natural part of addiction recovery. However, if you or a loved one experiences chronic relapses after treatment, staying through to the next levels of care is critical. The longer one stays in treatment, the less likely they are to relapse.

Taking advantage of the levels of care provides many options for therapy programs and mental health treatment. These programs, like anxiety or depression treatment programs, treat underlying issues contributing to drug and alcohol addiction. Taking the time to treat root problems helps prevent their impact once you leave residential treatment. Individuals build up new coping skills, improve communication, and find healthy ways to express themselves.
