We offer inpatient detoxification services for patients with a dependency on alcohol and/or benzodiazepines, such as Valium, Xanax or Klonopin. The detox process is medically supervised and designed to reduce the risk of life threatening withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal from other substances is treated through an outpatient program because symptoms are not life threatening.
Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is designed to help patients who have a difficult time developing the habits, attitudes and support structure to maintain freedom from dependency.
Addiction Recovery Tools
IOP is based on the latest research and tools for addiction recovery, typically with a recommended 12-Step program:
The Intensive Outpatient Program when paired with a 12-step program greatly increases the rate of recovery.
Program Meetings & Schedule
The IOP program meets Monday through Thursday from 5:20 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for four weeks. Evening hours are designed to reduce scheduling conflicts or interruption for the family and/or employment.
Meetings typically include:
- Group sessions give patients a place to talk about their struggles and learn positive coping skills
- Education about the medical aspects of addiction and relapse prevention
- Support and counseling for family members
- Random drug testing
- Individual counseling (can be used either during the program or after graduation)
- Additional week of program support for those who need to refresh their recovery skills
The Outpatient Group Program is ongoing. We provide a lower level of accountability to those who have been through a more structured program but would like a small support group to supplement their recovery efforts.
The Tallahassee Memorial Recovery Center also offers outpatient counseling sessions and seminars. We provide help with mental health issues, family relationships and other life transition coping skills.
