Our discreet remote virtual IOP treatment is an excellent option for anyone looking to recover from a substance use disorder.

What is virtual IOP?

Virtual intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) provides all the same expert clinical and support resources as our regular IOP treatment but with the convenience and flexibility of a remote model.

With our virtual IOP option, you complete treatment from the comfort of your own home. Our effective virtual treatment options provide private, comprehensive, and quality care.

Our personalized programming is discrete and meets you where you’re at on your journey. With a team of compassionate and attentive professionals by your side, we’re here to help you heal from your addictions.

Some of the conditions covered by our virtual treatment include the following:

  • Alcohol and Drug Abuse
  • Depressive Disorder
  • Anxiety Disorder
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Codependency and Relationship Issues

Why is virtual treatment successful?

There are many barriers to treatment that often hinder people from starting. The virtual treatment option removes those barriers. Your family, pets, job, or other obligations are no longer a reason you can’t focus on your healing.

With virtual treatment, you can maintain your daily routine and stay engaged with your community. Just open your laptop or turn on your smartphone and get the care you deserve.

Is virtual outpatient treatment for me?

Virtual IOP is an excellent option for people who are unable to travel or are uncertain or uneasy about going away to rehab.

Some people who may benefit from virtual treatment are:

  • Parents and Heads of Household
  • Traveling Professionals
  • College Students Struggling with Drugs or Alcohol
  • Immunocompromised Patients
  • People with Social Phobias
  • People Concerned about Infection

What to expect from virtual treatment

Virtual IOP treatment can last anywhere from ten to thirty days. Your treatment team will start by helping you to address the root causes of your addiction, which can be challenging, especially if you feel shameful about your past.

But don’t worry, you’re not doing this alone. Your treatment team will be there to empower you along the way. They’ll help you to understand your triggers, build coping strategies, and prepare you for the inevitable situations that may make you prone to relapse.

Music is our medicine.

Recovery Unplugged’s cutting-edge approach incorporates music into evidence-based treatment models. You’ll find elements of music in every part of our behavioral health programming, including virtual treatment.

Using music alongside other recovery tools to treat your substance use disorder helps you embrace the process and focus on your recovery.

Music offers a variety of health benefits, including relief from depression and anxiety. It calms the mind and body and can help those with chronic pain.

Music also elevates your mood. A 2018 study found that listening to upbeat music can boost happiness and improve mood in just two weeks.

Recovery Unplugged is the first and only addiction treatment organization to fully integrate music into every phase of the treatment process. You don’t have to be a musician for music therapy to work; you just have to enjoy music.

Some methods Recovery Unplugged uses to incorporate music in our virtual treatment are:

  • Personalized playlists
  • Composition and songwriting
  • Performances

Preparing for virtual treatment

Starting something new can be scary. And recovering from addiction is one of the most challenging things you can do. At Recovery Unplugged, we involve you in the entire treatment process, so there are no surprises.

You’ll work closely with your treatment team of doctors, nurses, and therapists to battle your substance use disorder and its origins. To prepare:

Fully commit to your treatment.

Take care of work and family obligations ahead of time. Outside stressors are bound to come up during treatment. Do your best to make your life as stress-free as possible before you begin.

Remember your why.

It’s easy to get discouraged during treatment, and during virtual treatment, quitting is only a few clicks away. Keep in mind why you are doing this. You have committed to a better life and must remind yourself that you deserve it – because you do.

Gain support.

While in treatment, you’ll learn that community is key to a successful recovery. If you’re comfortable, let the people around you, including your employer, know about your plans for treatment and ask that they understand during that time.

Minimize distractions.

Your recovery comes first. Try to tie up any loose ends and limit outside distractions that may hinder your treatment experience. Create a safe and comfortable space in your home to complete your treatment.

Ask for help.

If you are currently caring for children, pets, or other loved ones, try to get help with those obligations. Remember, while in treatment, you need to put yourself first. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness.
