The mental health intensive outpatient program at Renaissance Recovery is a primary treatment program for mental health disorders and addiction. IOP is an appropriate option if you do not require medically supervised care 24/7. While in an IOP, you can engage in therapy part-time, while still committing to your work and family responsibilities.

Our program gives you the flexibility you need to get help for your mental health disorder while still living at home. You can establish a foundation for recovery and continue your therapy for as long as it takes. To find out more about the mental health intensive outpatient program in Orange County, contact Renaissance Recovery today.

What is an Intensive Outpatient Program?

Our mental health intensive outpatient program is ideal if you are seeking help for an addiction, but you can still function in your normal day-to-day routine. Outpatient treatment offers many of the same types of therapy and treatment as inpatient treatment but without round-the-clock supervision. 

The treatment we offer in our mental health intensive outpatient program includes: 

If you suffer from both a mental disorder and an addiction, you may want to consider dual diagnosis treatment for co-occurring disorders. During treatment, a therapist can assess your condition and develop a treatment plan that addresses the root causes of your addiction. When you treat your mental disorder, you are more likely to sustain a recovery from drug or alcohol addiction.

The Goal of an Intensive Outpatient Program

The goal of our program will vary depending on your condition. During your treatment, you will learn how to cope with your mental disorder and how to develop problem-solving skills. In addition, you will improve your self-awareness and identify the connection between your disorder and your behaviors.

Most importantly, you will recognize unhealthy behaviors that affect your day-to-day life and your relationships with others. You will also learn the value of asking for help and support from your therapist and your family.

Mental Health Disorders That We Treat

We offer a comprehensive mental health intensive outpatient program in Orange County that helps you address and manage your disorder. Some of the mental disorders we treat include:

  • Bipolar disorder
  • ADHD
  • PTSD
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Borderline personality disorder

We offer a combination of evidence-based and holistic treatment that helps improve all areas of your life and develop skills to manage your mental disorder. With the right treatment, you can live a fuller and healthier life. 

Is a Intensive Outpatient Treatment for You?

Although a treatment specialist can assess your addiction or any mental disorders you have, it is ultimately up to you to decide which type of treatment is best for you. The most important things to consider are your goals, your treatment needs, and whether you can function without 24/7 care.

Our mental health intensive outpatient program is right for you if you can function from day to day at work or at home but require therapy for your mental health disorder. A Renaissance Recovery specialist can meet with you to determine your level of care and the best type of treatment that meets your needs.

“I owe my life and my happiness to these people. October 8th, 2019 marked two years of sobriety for me, and prior to finding Renaissance I hadn’t had 24 hours sober in nearly 20 years.”
