Intensive Outpatient Program

Providing Different Levels of Individualized Care

At Transformations, we help individuals transition back to meaningful lives by creating an environment where change is possible. Clients learn coping skills to help them become active members of their community and identify triggers to avoid in order to maintain sobriety.

Transformations aims to offer a variety of services, at multiple levels, to as many people as possible. We have many treatment tracks and programs which allow clients to progress at their own pace while following their own individualized plan for treatment.

Transformations offers a complete continuum of care from our partial hospitalization (PHP) program, our intensive outpatient (IOP) and outpatient (OP) programs.

Maintaining Sobriety After Treatment

The longer someone remains in treatment, the greater the chances of sustained sobriety. Although relapse may be part of the recovery process, the primary purpose of aftercare is to offer an individual the tools, resources and support system to remain abstinent from drugs and alcohol and improve their quality of life. After many years of using or drinking, it is unlikely that a complete behavioral change will occur in 30, or even 90 days of treatment.

In fact, the initial period after leaving treatment presents the highest risk for relapse. Transitioning from the confines and restrictions of an addiction treatment facility and returning to a life of minimal structure and support puts people at risk of relapse during this period. Intensive outpatient and outpatient programs help a person deal with stressors and triggers that come with responsibility and freedom.

Transformations discharge planning and alumni teams work in tandem to create a comprehensive aftercare plan for clients transitioning out of our PHP program. The continuing care plan includes the locations of 12-step meetings, referrals to supportive living and transition to an IOP or OP program.

  • IOP clients attend 3 group therapy sessions and 1 individual counseling session, for a total of 9 hours of clinical care per week. These clients also attend an hour of life skills training on an additional day, to address topics such as stress management, career development and budgeting
  • OP clients attend 1 group therapy session and one individual counseling session, for a total of 2 hours of clinical care per week, as well as a life skills session.
  • All clients also have access to walk-in clinical, medical and psychiatric services on a weekly basis if needed. The walk-in clinic offers sick visits and follow-up care for basic medical needs.

Flexible Scheduling with Our Day and Evening IOP Program

Our IOP program is the perfect solution for clients requiring continuing care after their stay at an inpatient, residential or partial hospitalization treatment program. The IOP program is offered 4 days per week on either a daytime or evening schedule (consisting of a three-hour group three times weekly and a one-hour life skills group). This allows clients to arrange their group therapy and individual counseling sessions to work around their schedules.

TTC Mental Health IOP:

Mon, Tues, Thurs 1:15-4:15 pm

TTC Substance Abuse IOP:

Mon, Tues, Thurs 6-9 pm

Wed 6-7 pm

All clients will be required to wear a mask and will have their temps taken before entering the vans or building. Clients will be no more than 10 per room. Clients who are at a distance will still be able to participate via telehealth.

Why Choose Transformations IOP Program?

Transformations Treatment Center’s Intensive Outpatient program in Delray Beach, FL is an individualized treatment program for adults dealing with substance use disorders. IOP is offered for clients who wish to continue treatment after a more intensive program has been completed, or for people who are seeking treatment and do not require a higher level of care based on clinical and medical assessment.

Clients in the IOP program are encouraged to be involved in an outside support program such as AA, NA, or Smart Recovery, and depending on the program chosen, get a sponsor and do step-work at 12 step meetings while addressing triggers and cravings in treatment. We also offer an Outpatient (OP) program for anyone ready to step down from our IOP treatment program.

Telehealth Option Available

Our Outpatient Team will be offering IOP services and will hold three hour group sessions, three days per week via telehealth. OP clients will be offered individual sessions and a one hour group each week. These clients will also have access to psychiatric care via telehealth. No special hardware is required — most cell phones will work.

We understand the significance of social distancing and appreciate the sacrifices so many of you are making in order to help try and prevent the spread of this virus but there’s no excuse to put off getting help.

Learn Important Life Skills

We create life skills sessions to meet the specific needs of our clients. Important life skills include things like how to write and format a résumé, build communications skills during mock interviews and even suggestions on how to dress for success during interviews. Skill development sessions also include topics including cooking lessons, household maintenance, creating and sticking to a budget, meal planning and grocery shopping.

IOP Treatment and the Use of Medication

Transformations works diligently to create individualized treatment programs based on the unique and specific needs of each client. We recognize that each client has a different background, a different personal history and treatment needs that are not the same as those of others seeking help.

Our IOP treatment with psychiatric support includes the collaboration of psychotherapy and medication support, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT), an option for the use of medications specifically designed to address withdrawal symptoms and cravings. When combined with intensive outpatient care, treatment with medication is a viable option for treating alcohol and drug use disorders. By providing treatment with medication, Transformations focuses on the long-term health and emotional well-being of our clients.

New clients are assessed by the Transformations medical team including Dr. Daud, our on-site, double board-certified Psychiatrist specializing in both General Psychiatry and Addiction Psychiatry. A thorough assessment determines whether they meet the criteria for treatment with medication. Clients participate in all clinical IOP services. Those clients taking medications on an intensive outpatient basis also attend regular medication management appointments.

While some mental health medications may be necessary ongoing for some individuals, in general, Medication Assisted Treatment (to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms) is not intended to be a long-term solution. Rather, it is used to help an individual adjust slowly to life without drugs or alcohol. At the completion of the program, clients are referred by a member of our discharge planning team to one of our trusted medical partners for continuing care and medication management.

The ultimate goal for the use of Medication Assisted Treatment is to help clients work towards a stable recovery that includes abstinence from drugs or alcohol.
