Glenbeigh’s treatment approach focuses on each person’s to change and develop a healthy lifestyle. The Glenbeigh Outpatient Center of Erie utilizes an abstinence-based model of care and treats addiction as a disease. The Intensive Outpatient Program provides a structured clinical service designed to treat clients who are not eligible for residential care, yet still have a need for ongoing assessment and treatment.
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
Intensive Out Patient (IOP)
Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
