Community-Based Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in Maryland

Find Your Unique Recovery Tools

For individuals struggling with substance abuse, it can seem like there’s no way to escape your situation. By isolating yourself and falling back into old habits, you could be hurting your chances for recovery.

You can see your road to success. With the right help and the determination to succeed, you can effectively treat your substance issues. With the right resources, you can return to your community, your family and start living a better life.

This road isn’t far away. First Choice helps you discover what it takes to recover through our Intensive Outpatient Program. You’ll work with us in our inclusive environment to uncover the tools you already have to lead you towards recovery.

Specialized Therapeutic Discussions and Resources

Intensive Outpatient Program, or IOP, is a short-term, multidisciplinary recovery program geared towards substance abuse recovery. The program consists of group therapy and one-on-one therapy sessions from accredited specialists.

The program is designed to incorporate your current and changing schedule so you can apply the lessons you learn during your meetings. It also includes your family and community to help reinforce the techniques you learn from our staff.

The goal of the program is to help you find your own path to recovery and develop the tools to gradually reduce use and focus on your daily life. By incorporating your community and our therapeutic methods, you’ll have the support you need to find your inner strength.

Helping You Find The Tools For Recovery

First Choice Community Counseling offers an IOP program for Maryland families currently struggling with substance abuse control and recovery.

Our program involves meeting with a consistent group 3-5 days per week for a couple of hours each time. Treatment takes the form of group and individual therapeutic discussions providing you a safe communal outlet for your concerns.

You’ll have access to resources like psychological education, healthy coping mechanisms and community events to help you discover your best path. Through active listening techniques and proper guidance, we help you discover the recovery resources within you.

As you learn new skills and make improvements, your treatment plan will reduce over time. The ultimate goal is for your sessions to reduce from multiple times a week to an “as need be” basis.

Recovery is a long and uneven road, so you’ll always be welcomed back with open arms.

Simplified Outpatient Programs

When you’re ready to start your self-care journey, you’ll follow a simple process that eases you into the program and provide some stability in your daily life.

    1. You’ll meet with our staff doctor to perform an assessment
    2. Based on these results, we’ll assign the best treatment for your concern.
    3. Once approved, you’ll begin treatment with multiple therapy meetings a week.
    4. As you show signs of improvement, you’ll reduce your weekly sessions over time.
    5. After you’ve shown serious signs of self-improvement and maintained your well-being, your meetings will be on an “as-needed” basis for the future.

Everyone has a different journey towards recovery. That’s why our process is flexible enough to meet your specific needs and provide the right care for your situation.

The overall mission isn’t for you to stay in our care. It’s for you to build your own support system and self-determination. However long that takes and whatever form it takes, we’ll be there for you with a helping hand.
