WHAT IS ENTERING TREATMENT LIKE? People entering treatment are treated with respect for choosing to get their lives back on track. Modern rehab professionals and therapists are caring, non-judgmental, and understanding. Instead of criticizing patients’ substance abuse or seeking to make them feel guilty about their addiction, they offer a warm, supportive hand to guide them through the process of recovery. Many treatment professionals and staff who work at rehab facilities are in recovery themselves and can relate to an addict’s struggles.
WHAT IS AN INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM (IOP)? An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is a form of substance abuse rehabilitation in which a person visits a behavioral health provider or a treatment center several days a week for a few hours at a time. An IOP is more time-intensive than most standard outpatient programs. However, unlike an inpatient program, it does not require participants to live at the facility.
WHAT IS MAT? Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, which is effective in the treatment of opioid use disorders (OUD) and can help a person to sustain recovery.
