How is Addiction Treated?

Addiction is a chronic disease, and it’s one that’s considered treatable with the right approach. An evidence-based and expert-led addiction treatment program addresses all of the needs of a person on a holistic level. This includes their mental, physical, spiritual, and social needs.

Most treatment programs include a combination of group and individual therapy approaches and supplemental programs such as exercise therapy or yoga. These help someone thoroughly heal from addiction and build the coping skills they’ll use in recovery.

The Continuum of Care in Treatment

The continuum of care is an approach to treating addiction that involves guiding clients through various health services across all intensity levels. A continuum of care approach is useful because addiction isn’t straightforward. When a person has a substance use disorder, it’s a progressive, chronic disease. While it can’t technically be cured, if it’s not properly treated and managed, it can become more severe and lead to death ultimately.

With the continuum of care, the client enters a treatment system at the care level best suited to their needs. From this care level, a client can step up into a more intensive program if needed, or when they complete this level of treatment, they can move down into a lower care level.

The model of a continuum of care is built on the idea that clients can move across treatment levels.

A continuum of care is used because it increases the likelihood of avoiding relapse. It is the best way to improve the chances of a long-term recovery.

Most people seeking addiction treatment will begin with an inpatient program, following a medical detox. These are considered the most intensive and highest levels of care. They’re residential programs where you live on-site, your environment is structured very scheduled, and your focus is completely on your recovery. Once someone leaves an inpatient program, they may find returning to their regular life challenging if they don’t complete lower care levels. Inpatient treatment is free of temptations and triggers, whereas daily life isn’t.

A transitional environment tends to help maintain a sense of support and connection to treatment even after leaving a residential program.

Resurge Recovery offers an intensive outpatient program in Cincinnati. Our programs can be a first step for someone with a milder addiction or a step down from a residential program.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Treatment

Before considering a Cincinnati IOP rehab center, it’s important to understand the key differences between an inpatient and outpatient program. Inpatient programs are intended to treat serious substance use disorders and often co-occurring mental health conditions. An outpatient program is less intensive and includes flexible scheduling so you can continue to meet outside responsibilities during treatment.

Inpatient programs require that you admit yourself, and during your time in a residential facility, you receive around-the-clocked medical and emotional support.

There are different levels of residential rehab programs, with some being more like a hospital and others being closer to a spa or hotel. To prepare for inpatient rehab, you have to plan how to take time off work, find child or family care arrangements, arrange transportation to and from the center, and pack your belongings. The treatment center can help you with these preparations.

Your daily life in inpatient rehab would focus entirely on sobriety and recovery. Your day is carefully accounted for, and you work with therapists individually and in group settings. These programs can last anywhere from 30 days to six months typically.

Outpatient treatment is less intensive and restrictive. There are a couple of different levels of outpatient care, including intensive outpatient programs and partial hospitalization programs.

A partial hospitalization program is the most intensive outpatient rehab, focusing on stabilization in your early recovery days. In a PHP, you might anticipate participating in five to six hours of treatment a day, most days of the week, so you wouldn’t likely be able to work during this time.

Resurge Recovery is a Cincinnati outpatient rehab specializing in helping with recovery skills, relapse prevention, and mental health and wellness.


Our Intensive Outpatient Program in Cincinnati

While every rehab center will have its approach to its programs, generally, an intensive outpatient program or an IOP is a step up from traditional outpatient rehab. An IOP usually includes a combination of individual and group therapy, requiring a time commitment of two or three hours a day or three to five days weekly. Family therapy can be part of an IOP treatment plan too.

Scenarios where an IOP could be the right program, include if a person is at risk of being hospitalized and a regular outpatient rehab isn’t intensive enough. The second is when you step down from a higher care level and transition from inpatient treatment to daily life.

When you participate in an intensive outpatient program, you can usually keep working and stay close to friends and family. These programs are less expensive than inpatient treatment; you can return home in the evenings.

When participating in outpatient treatment, your treatment plan usually includes behavioral therapies, counseling, and medication-assisted treatment when needed. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) includes using medicines approved by the FDA to help treat withdrawal symptoms and substance cravings. Cravings can otherwise be distracting, interfere with treatment, and raise the risk of relapse, which is why medicines may be used.
