Intensive Outpatient Program – IOP
Twin Lakes Recovery Center offers Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) services at two outpatient treatment centers located off the square in Gainesville (204 West Academy Street, Gainesville, GA 30501) and within walking distance to UGA in Athens (723 Baxter Street, Suite C, Athens, GA 30605).
Our outpatient services are designed for individuals 18 and older who have a substance use disorder and may also have co-occurring behavioral health issues. Twin Lakes Recovery Center’s IOP currently meets 3 evenings a week and is appropriate for someone leaving a higher level of care, such as a residential treatment program, or for those who are more stable in their recovery but still need additional support to maintain and grow in their sobriety.
Long-term sobriety requires a strong support network and ongoing personal growth to acquire healthy skills for developing relationships and decision-making. Our intensive outpatient program advances recovery through proven therapies that help individuals cope with cravings and the compulsion to use; identify and cope with anger, resentment, stress, and other triggers; and develop and maintain healthy relationships.
Our therapists are licensed Masters-level clinicians with experience working with substance use and co-occurring disorders. We maintain small group sizes, offer drug screens, and provide nursing assessments, individual therapy, and family support and education. Our program provides the support, structure, and accountability needed for long-term recovery while also allowing clients to maintain work, school, or family commitments.
Treatment programming is designed to address individual risks for relapse and current environmental stressors. It allows clients the opportunity to put into practice the recovery skills they’ve learned and to process their successes and challenges in a supportive, safe space. Clients are also encouraged to participate in 12-step meetings and to further develop their sober support network while in treatment.
Twin Lakes Recovery Center’s intensive outpatient treatment services are an important part of our continuum of care and our commitment to help clients maintain and thrive in their recovery. Our team will work with you or your loved one to determine if IOP treatment services are appropriate.
