Following hospitalization, many physicians choose to use a “step down” model of treatment.
PARTIAL HOSPITALIZATION PROGRAM
RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT CENTER
INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM
The step following hospitalization is partial hospitalization. This involves hospital access while the client is beginning to incorporate counseling and psychoeducation among other approaches.
Residential Treatment Centers offer living quarters while the client attends counseling, receiving medications if chosen, and additional programs. Sober houses may be available in your area as well, A sober house is similar to a group living facility that acts as a halfway house; they offer classes, some vocational and educational assistance as well as peer and therapeutic support. A sober house is an option for addictions in recovery. The house managers may be able to provide transportation to assist in client endeavors.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a different option. This offers the care needed to support the client goal while still allowing them to go about their daily routines of school, work, social commitments, etc. We have designed our IOPs to enhance wellness, regenerate family bonds, and so much more. Counseling Solutions is a huge supporter of the family systems which strengthen and heal; we do not want to put any additional stress on our client and family.
Counseling Solutions is a state licensed addiction center and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Our IOPs are also CARF Accredited. This is very significant to the quality of care you will receive.
“All CARF-accredited service providers have earned recognition for their compliance with the company’s leading-edge set of standards, especially as it relates to business and service delivery practices. The standards referenced have been developed collaboratively over 50 plus years across disciplines and updated regularly based on input from professionals and consumers alike. Working from this framework, it is CARF’s role to consult and advise health and human service organizations to help improve their service delivery and quality. Earning accreditation signifies that the organization has demonstrated compliance with these standards, and remains committed to continuous quality improvement, as one’s status is periodically evaluated with an on-site visit and reviewed annually.
CARF International has been an accrediting body since 1966, but was officially recognized in 2001 by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) for its work related to opioid treatment programs, and expanding services in 2013 to also include standards for eating disorder treatment.
What is the difference between a facility with CARF accreditation and the one without?
In the world of human service organizations, accreditation is more important now than ever. Consumers today want to make educated choices about their health care, and take seriously the quality of service provided to them. More and more, consumers are looking for accredited organizations as leaders in the field and as a sign of quality. An agency’s commitment to accreditation sends a message to consumers that the organization in question is committed to encouraging feedback, to continuous improvement through the implementation of updated practices that reflect the cultural landscape, and to serving the needs of the community. ” by CARF
Currently, Counseling Solutions is offering three IOPs :
What Does the Intensive Outpatient Program Include?
Structure and Design
The IOPs are located at Counseling Solutions in Killeen, TX . We limit our IOPs to a small group; research supports small group and individual programs offer better longterm results. Being client centered, we also incorporate wellness and relaxation within our curriculum to reinforce the necessity of teaching self-care.
Each client meets with their primary therapist weekly as well, not during the IOP hours. Each client receives a personal treatment plan (PTP) based on integrative therapy. Each client’s PTP will differ, based on assessment results, psychosocial intake, and individuality of experiences. Family sessions and/or relationship counseling may also be recommended by the therapist.
All professional appointments need to be scheduled outside of the IOP program hours in order to avoid missing groups. Every effort will be made to accommodate the client in scheduling these appointments directly prior to or after the IOP for their convenience.
