Regardless of whether you’re just starting your journey toward long-term success in recovery or continuing it, the intensive outpatient program (IOP) here at Ripple Ranch Recovery can provide you with all the skills and tools you need to live a life free of harmful substance misuse.
Our unique approach to the treatment of substance use disorders is built around teaching our clients how to heal and rebuild here in Comal County, Texas. We recognized that the people of Texas were in need of compassionate and caring intensive outpatient treatment options. Deaths related to substance use disorders have increased by 24% in the state of Texas since 2007.
Here at Ripple Ranch Recovery, we use evidence-based treatment with an underlying holistic approach that addresses the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of recovery. Our clients participate in a 12-step program or 12-step alternative with various additional therapies, all designed to help people achieve lasting recovery from substance addiction. Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) is fully customized to each patient and their individual needs in treatment.
IOP at Ripple Ranch Recovery Provides Customized Treatment Plans
Everyone has a different story and background that brought them to where they are now. As humans, we are a unique blend of our experiences, environments, and personalities. The factors that make us unique are also the same factors that make customized addiction treatment very important.
Because everyone has a unique history, people face different factors and stressors that trigger their addictions. The IOP at Ripple Ranch Recovery aims to give you the coping skills necessary to heal during the day while remaining in your unique home environment at night.
We can guarantee that clients will receive individual attention and care thanks to our low staff-to-patient ratio.
In many cases, substance use disorders are the result of unaddressed trauma. Traumatic experiences are relative and can result in unhealthy thought patterns and deeply affected ways of thinking. Because of this, each patient will meet with a specially trained trauma therapist at minimum once a week. We’ll work with you to adjust meeting times as appropriate for trauma work and based on an evaluation of your progress.
The IOP at Ripple Ranch Recovery is committed to providing treatment plans that are specifically tailored to give you the best chance of a positive outcome in long-term recovery.
The Benefits of Intensive Outpatient Care
Choosing the course of treatment that will be most effective for you and your unique situation can be tricky. That’s why Ripple Ranch Recovery is here to help determine the most appropriate recovery solution for you and you alone.
There are many reasons why the IOP may be a better choice than traditional inpatient recovery options. On the most basic level, the difference between inpatient and outpatient addiction treatment programs is whether the person seeking treatment stays at the facility each night or not. In an inpatient (also called residential) treatment program, the person stays at the facility each night, receiving treatment full-time without returning home or leaving the facility.
The goal of the intensive outpatient program at Ripple Ranch Recovery is to provide exceptional levels of evidence-based and holistic care while allowing you to return home after treatment has concluded for the day.
There are benefits to the IOP at Ripple Ranch that make it the most effective treatment option for many people. Some of these benefits include:
- People receiving treatment can live at home, fulfilling obligations in their employment, relationships, and family. The IOP is a perfect option for people who have a strong support system at home.
- The IOP at Ripple Ranch is a more affordable treatment option. Along with this, Ripple Ranch Recovery is also in-network with insurance companies such as Christus Health Plan, Cigna, Magellan Health, BlueCross BlueShield, Aetna, and First Health Network.
- The IOP offers many different evidence-based and holistic treatment options. All of our clients work with our licensed and compassionate healthcare professionals to figure out which types of treatment will work best for the client and their unique situation.
- Ripple Ranch Recovery is a dual-diagnosis center, which means we treat substance use disorders as well as any underlying mental health disorders that may have led to addiction in the first place. This is also known as having co-occurring disorders.
Addressing Co-Occurring Disorders at Ripple Ranch
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), an estimated 38% of those battling addiction are also struggling with a co-occurring mental health disorder — like anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder — that either triggered their addiction in the first place or aggravates it after its onset.
Ripple Ranch Recovery employs psychiatric professionals who specialize in identifying and addressing the underlying mental health conditions that can cause addiction or make it worse. Treating these underlying disorders can help set a person up for lasting success in recovery.
Ripple Ranch Recovery Provides Relationship-Oriented Addiction Treatment Services in the Austin Area
Here at Ripple Ranch Recovery, we know a strong support system can sometimes make or break success in recovery. Our rehab center and methods are specifically designed to identify and treat any underlying causes of addiction.
Those causes can often be found in the environment our clients return home to. This is why we’re committed to helping our clients resolve family communication and support issues and heal relationships with friends and loved ones.
We achieve this by including family days, teaching how to set healthy personal boundaries, addressing co-dependence, and more. As opposed to some rehab programs that limit family interaction while in recovery, we encourage it as part of the recovery process.
