The Best Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program in Arizona

The decision to pursue recovery from drug and alcohol dependency is one of the most difficult decisions you’ll ever make – and one of the most rewarding. On your search for the right addiction treatment program, you’ll likely encounter a number of inpatient and outpatient treatment centers.

Which is best for you?

Addiction Treatment Outpatient Program Levels of Care

Illuminate Recovery specializes in comprehensive outpatient treatment, designed for people who may not need the intense structure and 24-hour supervision of an inpatient program but struggle with independent recovery. After a consultation with one of our master’s level therapists, our team will work with you to develop a customized care plan.

Our outpatient addiction treatment program ranges from 30-90 days. The individual in care might need a higher level of care at the beginning of treatment, in which case they will start with Partial Hospitalization or Day Care for 5 days a week. As the treatment process continues, patients move from PHP to a lower level of care

Intensive Outpatient Services (IOP)

While in intensive outpatient care, our clients attend day programming 3-5 days a week. Our program offers an array of evidence-based practices designed to motivate individuals with substance use disorders to initiate positive steps toward recovery. Many of these individuals also have co-occurring mental health disorders. When a dual diagnosis is present, we address both the addiction and mental health issue as part of that individuals customized care plan.

With our intensive outpatient rehab program, you have the support of your counselor and treatment peers as you navigate the everyday challenges of early recovery.

Below, you’ll find some frequently asked questions about our addiction treatment program levels of care.

What Are Your Treatment Program Levels of Care?

At Illuminate Recovery, we believe in offering a full-fledged, structured system of support that is specially tailored to your unique needs. Many people benefit from transitioning from a detox facility or an inpatient treatment center into our Partial Hospitalization Program, then to our Intensive Outpatient Program. In our experience, receiving graduated levels of care prevents abrupt pauses and fallbacks and allows smooth progress without towards the ultimate goal – lasting recovery.

What Does Your Intensive Outpatient Program Include?

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is ideal for those who need intensive substance dependency treatment but may no longer need detox services or the 24-hour medical supervision of an inpatient program. You’ll be able to receive daily, individualized treatment

including group therapy, one-on-one therapy, coaching, and relapse prevention and return home in the evening. Illuminate Recovery’s IOP allows you to build resilience and work towards sobriety during the day and practice your sobriety techniques in the evening.

How Do Intensive Outpatient Programs Compare to Partial Hospitalization Programs?

Illuminate Recovery’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) has all the intensity of a residential treatment program but allows you to return home or to our sober living facilities in the evening. Unlike our IOP, the PHP incorporates many of the intense, medically assisted treatments associated with inpatient treatment. For many people, PHP can serve as an effective intermediary step between an inpatient treatment program and our IOP.

How Long Is Outpatient Treatment for Substance Dependency?

As with many inpatient treatment centers, Illuminate Recovery’s outpatient treatment programs typically take place in 30, 60, or 90-day increments. The length of your treatment with us depends on your individual needs. Multiple factors contribute to this decision, including co-occurring mental health conditions, the severity of your substance use, the type of substances used, and the physical problems your substance use has caused.

Our Outpatient Program Options

Together, our program options have made Illuminate Recovery the best outpatient treatment program in Arizona. When you choose recovery through our program, you have a number of treatment options, including:

Partial Hospitalization Program
Also referred to as our “day treatment program,” Illuminate Recovery’s PHP offers the intense, therapeutic focus of a residential program five days per week. You’ll participate in group and individual therapies, recreational therapies, and educational groups for approximately six hours each day before returning home or to sober living in the evenings.
