Virtual IOP Programs in Fort Lauderdale

Overcoming Barriers to Addiction Treatment With Virtual Therapy

A Virtual Intensive Outpatient Program (online IOP) may be the solution for many people needing addiction treatment. In an online treatment program, patients have full access to the same doctors, licensed therapists, drug addiction, and health treatment plans as anybody entering an in-person IOP. This access makes a virtual IOP program nearly as effective as inpatient rehab for most substance use disorders.

Common barriers people come up against when it comes to accessing care in substance abuse and addiction treatment centers include:

  • Being a traveling professional or executive who cannot sacrifice their reputation or career by checking in to inpatient rehab or needing to stay in one place to go to outpatient therapy sessions in-house
  • Being unable to leave college or university due to the risk of losing scholarships/housing or for privacy reasons
  • Having a social phobia or anxiety disorder that makes it challenging to seek external help
  • Being an immunocompromised person or requiring social distancing for other health reasons
  • Needing to stay home with your kids or to take care of the household

What Is Virtual IOP?

Virtual IOP is one of the levels of care available in some substance abuse treatment facilities. It offers intensive outpatient treatment programs online. This flexibility allows patients to access therapy sessions, including cognitive behavioral therapy, music-assisted therapy, and more, along with group and family therapy, education, information, support, and virtual care doctor’s appointments via phone call or video chat from the comfort of your home. A virtual program makes it easy and safe to attend IOP for anybody, making rehab for drugs and alcohol more accessible.

Who Is a Good Candidate for VIOP?

Because of the lack of physical oversight and structure, virtual IOPs will not work for everybody. The best candidates for virtual intensive outpatient rehab treatment programs will:

  • Either live at home with good sober support or inside a sober living home
  • Not be experiencing mental or physical health issues that need 24-hour monitoring and care
  • Not be experiencing withdrawal symptoms
  • Have their cravings under control and be able to resist drug and alcohol use on their own
  • Be willing to show up for virtual treatment on time, and stay on schedule in the virtual IOP program

Virtual Addiction Treatment Aftercare

Aftercare provided through virtual outpatient treatment plans is an excellent solution for people who do not live near the residential facility but want to continue to access care, support, and a sober community after inpatient or intensive outpatient rehab. All aftercare and support can be provided online, allowing patients to live their lives to the fullest as they remain connected to the help they need in recovery.
