Desert Mountain Outpatient Services

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) can provide additional support for those struggling with substance use issues when traditional outpatient treatment has not been effective in fully meeting patient needs.

IOP provides group therapy that allows patients to learn from others and gain needed support while allowing patients to maintain regular activities in their family, job and community. Patients must be willing to abstain from all substances in order to participate in the group.

  • Increase use of healthy coping skills
  • Improve relationships with others
  • Learn to manage anger
  • Decrease self-harming behaviors
  • Increase positive sense of self
  • Improve communication skills
  • Find new ways to cope without using substances

Our licensed therapists provide individualized treatment to meet the specific needs of our patients. We provide resources for the 12-step model to give our patients the best chance for a lasting recovery.

Our three-day-a-week program provides a more concentrated level of care than traditional outpatient treatment. Each day we provide three hours of group therapy. The average length of treatment is eight weeks or 24 sessions.

Substance Use and Adults

Over 20 million adults suffer from a substance use disorder each year, according to SAMHSA. This number includes both those who suffer from alcohol abuse issues and illegal drug abuse issues. The number of adults with alcohol and drug addiction hovers around this 20 million mark each year – you are not alone in the fight against addiction. 

Adult chemical dependency has a negative stigma surrounding it, as does seeking drug and alcohol treatment. However, treatment works. Help and hope for you or your loved one are out there. 

If you’re suffering from a substance use problem, our substance use and recovery IOP can help. 

Why Choose an Adult Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program?

Treatment for a substance use problem is not one-size-fits-all, and the treatment – and treatment provider – you choose matters. 

The dedicated professionals who work with patients at our intensive outpatient substance abuse program and outpatient drug rehab knows what it takes to help you recover and will provide the necessary tools, skills and education to assist you in your journey to a happier, healthier life. 

Treating just the physical symptoms of a substance use problem does not usually fix the overall problem. Our substance abuse and recovery IOP focuses on long-term success, taking into account your mental health. Mental health disorders and substance abuse often go hand-in-hand, causing a co-occurring disorder. 

A co-occurring disorder is when a person suffers from both substance abuse and mental health issues. Solving one problem does not solve the other, and both must be addressed for the patient to begin their journey to recover. 

Choosing an adult outpatient substance abuse program that understands the importance of mental health, and focuses on you as a whole person, can make a massive difference when it comes to long term recovery.
