Eternal Crisis Outreach is an IOP Provider (ASAM I.II)
Intensive Outpatient Programs or IOPs are treatment programs that are used to target addictions, depression, eating disorders, or other dependencies that do not need detoxification or 24/7 supervision. IOP therapy allows the patient to have a more normal daily routine. IOP therapy is also a more science-based approach to addiction recovery. However, outpatient treatment isn’t right for every rehab attendee.

Goals and Objectives
The primary goal of addiction counseling is to help the client achieve and maintain abstinence from addictive chemicals and behaviors. The secondary goal is to help the client recover from the damage the addiction has done to the client’s life.
Agents of Change
As an supplement to the counseling model, the client must take responsibility for working a program of recovery. Although recovery is ultimately the client’s task, he or she is encouraged to get a great deal of support from others such as the client’s counselors, treatment staff, sponsor, drug free or recovering peers, and family members.
