Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
An intensive outpatient treatment program, or IOP, is set up for those struggling with an addiction to begin the recovery process. However, the patient will not live at the facility during treatment.
IOP involves patients coming in and out of a medical office building regularly to receive therapy and other services while continuing their life outside of these visits.

DISC Village - Leon County Human Services Center peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling are likely to be involved.
Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.
Aftercare support is vital to those who have completed a drug or alcohol treatment program. This support comes in individual and family counseling, treatment of psychiatric and other medical conditions, and medications to reduce cravings.

Family therapy can help you and your family deal with old issues that may trigger substance abuse. The idea behind family therapy for drug addiction is that you are never fully healed from substance abuse until you’ve healed your relationship with your family, too. To get sober, you need to find a different way to cope with the pain in your life.
This is when a group of people in various stages of recovery meet up and discuss their experiences, triggers, successes, failures, and even alternative therapies! Unlike support groups where everyone already knows each other, group therapy is conducted along side outpatient or inpatient treatment at DISC Village - Leon County Human Services Center.

- Talking about the traumatic event and how it affected them.
- Helping those who have PTSD to deal with their nightmares and recurring memories.
- Working with individuals to resolve the issues triggering the stress, whether seeing someone who reminds them of what happened or feeling helpless.
The individual is also encouraged to help others that are struggling with similar problems. This often helps them feel empowered and gives them hope.
Trauma therapy is not for everyone; it is usually reserved for people who have recently experienced a traumatic event and struggle to get over it. It is generally done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans.
