    Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    Daily trips to the hospital that provides the treatment include intensive outpatient services (IOP). IOP in New Mexico is appropriate for patients in residential recovery facilities that have been diagnosed with addiction. Patients return to their everyday lives gradually, increasing the likeliness of success in treatment.

    Aftercare Support

    Treatment is just a first step in sustaining sobriety. After rehabilitation, counseling for aftercare helps the person adapt to a life without drugs. A sober living facility in Albuquerque, job therapy, or educational assistance may be included in this service, managed by Albuquerque Behavioral Health. This is when a preventive strategy for relapse starts to take shape.

    Inpatient Care

    Inpatient programs are intensive regimes that require individuals suffering from serious addictions to admit themselves into a controlled environment. Inpatient programs in New Mexico generally span over 28 days to six months. The first step in an inpatient program is medically assisted detox. Doctors and addiction specialists at Albuquerque Behavioral Health monitor the individual’s vital signs as the drugs leave their system. Some inpatient rehab programs also provide counseling for family members to provide encouragement and emotional support. In inpatient programs, patients have access to 24-hour medical supervision.
