Why Choose an Intensive Outpatient Program?
An IOP or PHP supports the individual through the benefit of daily monitoring as a safety net for working on some of the difficult and complex issues that present in chemical dependency. Often residential or outpatient treatment is not sufficient. Transitional living can help move individuals out of their own potentially triggering environment for a period of time in order to establish a significant degree of sobriety in a safe and supportive surrounding. Environmental stability is achieved at the same time the individual works to resolve major issues in one’s life, through intensive daily therapy, while making changes in lifestyle, friendships, and support systems.
Harmony Place Monterey | The Best IOP Available
Long-term recovery from addiction requires extensive emotional understanding and recalibration of one’s internal world, lifestyle choices, surroundings, and the ability to establish nourishing and healthy support systems that may not have existed before.
The establishment of new internal and external processes takes some time to develop and become successfully engrained as a new habit. Learning to manage overwhelm, tolerate emotional or physical discomfort, uncertainty, fear, inadequacy, disappointment are amongst common triggers and are frequently associated with relapse. At Harmony Place Monterey, we address each individual’s specific issues and needs, step-by-step, providing them with tools that will help them with being in the world and in the “self” in a different way.
These new processes take time and habit to take hold and become successfully engrained.
