Intensive Outpatient Addiction Treatment In New Jersey

Outside view of Rubicon Recovery Center

In the face of an unprecedented increase in drug overdose deaths in the United States, which soared to a record high of 98,268 fatalities in 2021, Rubicon Recovery’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) stands as a vital countermeasure in the opioid crisis. This alarming trend marks an 11.9% rise in preventable deaths, with drug overdoses contributing to a 17.6% increase, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). Particularly, the opioid epidemic has deepened, evidenced by a 41% spike in opioid overdose deaths in 2020, and a further 18% increase in 2021. The demographic most impacted, adults aged 35 to 44, saw a staggering 20% increase in opioid overdose deaths from the previous year, highlighting the critical need for effective treatment interventions.

Rubicon Recovery is acutely aware of the complexity of challenges these trends present. Our IOP is meticulously designed to address the intricacies of opioid addiction among adults, offering a structured, yet flexible, treatment approach. Participants can engage in comprehensive recovery efforts without stepping away from their daily commitments. Through a blend of evidence-based therapies, peer support, and personalized care plans, we aim to mitigate the opioid-related fatality rates and support our clients on their journey to long-term recovery.

What Is An Intensive Outpatient Program For Addiction Treatment?

Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) is a form of addiction recovery program designed for individuals who require more support than standard outpatient care but do not need inpatient or residential treatment. IOP allows participants to receive comprehensive therapy and support while living at home and maintaining their daily responsibilities. This program typically involves several hours of therapy per week, encompassing group sessions, individual counseling, and educational workshops focused on substance abuse, coping strategies, relapse prevention, and mental health management. IOP provides a structured yet flexible approach, offering a critical level of care for those in the early stages of recovery or transitioning from more intensive levels of treatment.

Who Would Benefit From The Intensive Outpatient Program?

Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) is particularly suited for individuals who exhibit certain behaviors and attributes indicating they are struggling with substance use but still retain a degree of functionality in their daily lives. This level of care is ideal for:

  1. Individuals Transitioning from Inpatient Care: Those who have completed a residential treatment program and need continued support as they reintegrate into their daily routines.
  2. People with Stable Living Environments: Individuals who have supportive and stable home environments that are conducive to recovery but require structured treatment.
  3. Persons with Work or Family Commitments: Those who cannot commit to residential treatment due to work, school, or family obligations but recognize the need for substantial support.
  4. Those Exhibiting Moderate Substance Use Disorders: Individuals who struggle with substance use but do not require detoxification or round-the-clock supervision.
  5. Individuals Seeking a Step-Up from Traditional Outpatient Programs: Those who find that standard outpatient services are insufficient for their recovery needs and require more intensive therapeutic engagement.
  6. Persons with Co-Occurring Mental Health Conditions: Individuals who are managing both substance use and mental health conditions and can benefit from the integrated treatment approach provided in IOPs.
