Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in Worcester MA
Lake Ave Recovery’s Intensive Outpatient Program length of stay is driven by medical necessity that focuses on a person’s strengths, needs, abilities and preferences resulting in a comprehensive and effective individualized treatment plan and generally ranges between two to four (2-4) weeks, declining in frequency as the individual establishes community supports and resumes normal daily activities.
A Typical Day
The program meets in the morning and typically includes didactic sessions, process groups, 12 step facilitation, and experiential offerings that focus on the skills needed to overcome the problem areas uncovered in the initial assessment. Many believe that effective counseling is a more powerful tool than medication for addressing specific issues such as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Lake Ave Recovery’s therapeutic services go beyond talking. Experiential or mindfulness activities which include restorative sessions in a quiet lake cove, forest bathing, nature walks, light strength and fitness training, yoga, Tai-Chi, Qigong, Therapeutic Massage, Reiki, or any number of new and engaging activities, provide innovative and novel experiences to enhance healing.
