Why Arizona IOP Recovery Works Best
In a few cases, an inpatient program is the best alternative. But in the vast majority of cases, outpatient therapy is more desirable and also more effective.
Most addicts are functioning addicts. They have careers, families, friends, and other connections to the people around them. A sixty or ninety-day inpatient stay may help these individuals detox, but it is incredibly burdensome on others. People count on you to be at certain places at certain times. If you are in an inpatient program, that’s obviously not possible.
In other words, inpatient therapy places the burden of your recovery on the other people who must carry on without you and, in many cases, make excuses as to why you are not there. That’s not a healthy situation for anyone.
Furthermore, all recovering addicts must go home eventually. They usually go back into the same environment that sparked their addiction in the first place. The transition from a cloistered, inpatient environment to the temptations of the real world is too much for most people to deal with. That’s why outpatient therapy normally works best.
At Desert Cove Recovery, we do not offer a one-size-fits-all IOP program. During your initial appointment, our professional counselors will go over all your outpatient options. That includes the pros and cons of each one.
