Intensive Outpatient Program

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is designed for individuals who are in the early stages of their addiction, have a living situation which is conducive to recovery, and have a strong support system in place.

Intensive Outpatient Alcohol & Drug Rehab & Recovery

Sometimes, an addict recognizes his or her problem before it spirals completely out of control and wants to enroll into an intensive outpatient drug and alcohol rehab program.

The problems have yet to become crises … relationships damaged but not irreparably so … jobs in jeopardy but not lost. These patients may need help but have yet to reach a point where medically supervised detox and 24-hour residential treatment is required, but without immediate help, it’s only a matter of time. That’s where Cornerstone of Recovery’s Intensive Outpatient Alcohol & Drug Treatment Program comes in.

Accredited by the Joint Commission on Healthcare Organization (JCAHO), it’s a structured program that provides rigorous therapy for those struggling with addiction. It’s intense, as the name implies, but it’s also a program that gives clients more responsibility in the maintenance of their own recovery.

It’s not a program for everyone, which is why an addiction assessment — performed by Cornerstone’s team of professionals, is important in determining whether the Intensive Outpatient Program is the right treatment path for each patient.

Participant Requirements

Patients must be at least 18 years of age and chemically dependent, but that’s just the beginning — they must be motivated to change, willing to attend all meetings and submit to random alcohol/drug screenings. In addition, patients may be fighting the compulsion to use drugs, but that compulsion should be controllable in order to take part in the Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program. In addition, medical and/or psychological problems can’t be a factor, and a safe, stable, drug-free home environment is a necessity. Potential patients must also have their own reliable transportation to get them to and from IOP meetings and sessions.

What does intensive outpatient treatment entail?

  • 12-step recovery model
  • Individual counseling
  • Addiction assessment
  • Peer evaluation
  • Activity therapy
  • Continuing care/Aftercare
  • Group therapy
  • Meditation, spiritual education
  • 12-step groups
  • Psycho-educational groups
  • Education groups
  • Psycho-social assessment
  • Stress Management
  • Family therapy

The Intensive Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment Program typically lasts 8 to 10 weeks. For the convenience of those who work, different times are offered for this program. This program allows patients to continue living at home and maintain their employment; it’s also an integral part of the program of our Support Living clients as well.

The Path To Recovery Starts At Cornerstone

Medical Detoxification

Medical Detoxification can be a critical time in a patient’s journey toward recovery because the symptoms
of withdrawal can be difficult to manage and potentially life-threatening. A team of certified, competent
and caring professionals work together to ensure that we provide the best medical care for our patients.
The Medical Director prescribes detox medications to keep the patient safe and reasonably comfortable.

While receiving detoxification medications, patients also attend Acudetox groups utilizing a specific
acupuncture protocol, psychoeducational groups, and experiential activities. However, detox patients are
also given sufficient opportunity to relax and allow their bodies to begin the healing process. Patients on
a detox protocol are monitored 24 hours a day and the typical length of detoxification is 3 to 5 days and
may be longer depending on the severity of the patient’s withdrawal symptoms.

Assessment & Orientation Unit (A&O)

This unit is designed to support our patients as they enter treatment and begin to invest in their community of peers. An extensive battery of assessments is performed to identify the patient’s bio-psycho-social-spiritual strengths, needs, and barriers to recovery (such as chronic pain, dual diagnosis, trauma, or other co-occurring disorders). This comprehensive assessment process provides our medical and clinical teams with much of the information they need to build a treatment plan that is individualized for each patient.

Non-Narcotic Pain Management Program

Our NON-NARCOTIC PAIN MANAGEMENT PROGRAM offers solutions that eliminate and or reduce the dependence on medications to treat pain and improve treatment outcomes. We are able to reduce pain and improve the recovery process. We offer sound information and teach skills that the patient can use to improve coping, relaxation, mindfulness, nutrition, and much more. Some of the modalities we use are Reiki, Rubenfeld Synergy, Acupressure, Mindful Stretching, and Addiction Free Pain Management Education.

Experiential Therapy

We believe healing occurs through direct experience. Experiential activities amplify the traditional therapeutic
modalities that are part of our milieu. Fitness, Meditation, Relaxation Therapy, Yoga, Spirituality Groups, Ropes Course, Mindfulness, Art Therapy, Drumming Circles, and community outings are some components of experiential healing at Cornerstone. Patients who participate in experiential therapies report reductions

Family Therapy

Family Therapy is an integral part of all of the clinical programs at Cornerstone. Early on in
the treatment process, we conduct a Family Questionnaire which allows family members and
close personal friends to have input that impacts the patients treatment plan. When appropriate,
there are Family Therapy sessions throughout the treatment process. These sessions are designed
to work through relationship issues, enhancecommunication, educate the family about the disease of addiction and provide them with emotional support while their loved one is in treatment. Through this support, the family will gain knowledge about the treatment process and how they may be unknowingly supporting the addiction through co-dependent and enabling behaviors.

Family members will learn about how to engage in personal growth and change through various 12 step programs, so that the family can heal together trough the recovery process. Cornerstone requires that each patient complete Family Fundamentals, an intensive three-day family program designed to provide intensive education, group therapy, family therapy, 12 step meeting experience, and an opportunity to repair the damage caused by active addiction. Family members are strongly encouraged to attend the Family Fundamentals program along with the patient. Cornerstone also has a weekly family education group for family members and an ongoing support group for parents of young adults who are struggling with addiction or who have recently entered recovery

Continuous Care

The Continuous Care Program upholds Cornerstone of Recovery’s treatment philosophy that chemical dependency is a chronic incurable disease that requires the consistent and continued attention of each patient for a lifetime. Recent scientific studies of the disease process have determined that full remission from active addiction does not occur until an individual has experienced at least 18 months of continuous sobriety, long after most intensive treatment programs have concluded.

In response to this knowledge, the Continuous Care Program provides services for a period of at least 18 months following treatment, to ensure that each patient has the opportunity for professional support throughout the early stages of their recovery. During this time, patients are encouraged to practice the skills and tools they learned and developed in treatment as they find their way back
into their home, work, and social environments. They are able to talk with Recovery Coaches and therapeutically
process the ups and downs they experience in sobriety. Active participation in the Continuous Care Program is vital in establishing a lifelong, solid recovery plan.

Support Living Facility (SLF)

The Support Living Facility (SLF) provides a safe environment for patients to continue to learn and practice self-management and interpersonal relationship skills while solidifying their recovery program. It can take several months for individuals to become comfortable enough in their recovery to successfully move away from the environment where they got sober. The SLF Program allows men and women to experience some of the freedoms they will experience after treatment while they are supported by thier peers, staff, and a sober environment. Staff monitors the community through regular contact, group therapy, spirituality groups, relapse prevention groups, drug screens, and random checks of the living quarters. Eventually, the patient is allowed to retrieve their cell phone, to leave the premises, operate a vehicle and obtain employment. The minimum length of stay is 2 months (while the individual concurrently is in the IOP Program). Patients often choose to stay in SLF longer while they continue to build their recovery network and become more comfortable with the life changes they’ve made.Typical length of stay varies from 2 to 6 months, depending on the patient’s clinical needs.

This place holds a very special place in my heart. I was a meth addict and my husband was an alcoholic. We both came to cornerstone in 2014. I came 2 weeks after he left. This place saved our lives and our marriage. We've been sober now almost 3 years and we have a new lease on life. I will always remember the counselors and the patients as my family

I went to Cornerstone of recovery in a sea of opioid addiction November 2015. If I were asked how I liked it then, it would have received a resounding NO! However, when I left in February 2016, with the tools necessary to deal with this disease, I absolutely would not replace the genuine loving care I received for the world. I will always be grateful for Cornerstone helping me learned how to live again, because addiction is no way of life. I now am 19 months clean only because I use the tools I learned. �
