Virtual IOP for Substance Abuse in Fort Lauderdale

Virtual IOP for Substance Abuse in Fort Lauderdale

What Is Virtual IOP?

IOP stands for “intensive outpatient program,” a flexible type of outpatient recovery program offered to people who have completed an inpatient detox or rehab plan and are transitioning back to their everyday lives. It is also for those who cannot move away from home to complete a residential rehab program for reasons like:

  • Being immunocompromised or having other health issues that would prevent a stay in drug or alcohol addiction treatment centers or entering treatment in a shared public space
  • Being responsible for running a household, being a single parent, or being otherwise unable to leave children or other family members due to legal, custody, or care issues
  • Members of the LGBTQ community and other groups who have safety issues when it comes to leaving home or staying in a new environment
  • Fearing exposure or requiring anonymity during treatment
  • Having a mental health issue that makes it impossible to seek help away from home, whether it is a social phobia or a disorder like depression that makes it feel too overwhelming
  • Being a college or university student reliant on loans or scholarships or being unable to take time from school or internships without damaging your prospects
  • Being a traveling professional, having a career as an executive, or otherwise living in the public eye as a person who cannot be away from work or need to protect their anonymity or reputation during treatment
  • Living in a rural area that lacks the type of treatments you need
  • Not being ready to move into a drug and alcohol addictions treatment center but still needing help.

These and other real-life scenarios should not impede a person’s ability to get the addiction treatment they need. For this reason, Recovery Unplugged offers a flexible online treatment plan for people with addiction with or without co-occurring mental health disorders (depression, anxiety, etc.), helping them get the treatments they need without causing more problems.

Our Fort Lauderdale, Florida Virtual intensive outpatient programs provide access to levels of care, including individual therapy and group therapy sessions, music-assisted therapy, family therapy, education, support, behavioral health, information, and virtual doctor’s appointments, all from the comfort of your own home. VIOP treatment is an easy and safe way to get the health treatment you need, making alcohol and drug rehabs more accessible to everybody.

Benefits of Virtual IOP Programs

Unlike going to residential treatment or partial hospitalization programs (PHP programs) for drug and alcohol addiction treatment, entering a VIOP allows you to continue living your everyday life with scheduled appointments, therapy, and other treatments provided online. This is especially important for people who may not otherwise have access to treatment due to health, social, financial, privacy or safety reasons. People who travel for work will also be able to access consistent care while on the road, and those who live in rural areas without access to in-person treatment will find what they need online.  

At Recovery Unplugged, we understand that there are many factors at play in a person’s life, and sometimes coming to a treatment center for drug or alcohol rehab is simply not possible, even for a few hours a day.

Virtual IOP After Inpatient Rehab in Fort Lauderdale

Many people move on from inpatient rehab into outpatient programs for a smoother and easier transition back to everyday life, with continued access to support, therapy, and other care, especially if they are on a longer-term medication-assisted treatment plan. The Recovery Unplugged virtual intensive outpatient program (IOP) is designed not only to help people recover from substance abuse and dual diagnosis issues, but it may also prevent relapses due to the continued accountability and easy access to sober living support.
