Intensive Outpatient Treatment Programs (IOP) in Las Vegas

Desert Parkway Behavioral Healthcare Hospital is a private, acute psychiatric facility in Las Vegas offering outpatient treatment and rehab for those suffering from addiction or mental illness. Some people with mental health issues and/or substance abuse concerns need more treatment than standard outpatient services can provide, but do not necessarily need inpatient hospital care. Other patients may have previously needed the structure and safety of inpatient hospitalization, but have completed the inpatient program and now need to continue daily supportive treatment following their return home. In either case, Desert Parkway offers the tools and resources necessary to provide effective outpatient rehab and treatment to those dedicated to recovery.

Dual-Diagnosis Outpatient Drug or Alcohol Rehab

For many, drug abuse stems from a mental health issue. When alcohol/drug addiction or abuse are present in conjunction with a behavioral disorder, we treat the problem as a dual-diagnosis. At our outpatient alcohol rehab and drug addiction center, patients are treated for each individual problem concurrently through comprehensive care, which includes traditional care tactics, 12-step programs, and holistic methods. After participating in our intensive outpatient program (IOP), patients are better equipped to achieve a more focused recovery and greater stabilization in daily life.

IOP Treatment Overview

Our intensive outpatient rehab program is highly structured for patient comfort and security. Those receiving outpatient care will partake in individual and group therapy that utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy, as well as medication management (if required). Patients are kept busy and educated on how to build life skills and repair relationships with family members and friends. To assist with the latter, family therapy is also included. This gives loved ones a resource and guide for helping the person with the illness better cope and recover.

The outpatient treatment programs at Desert Parkway Behavioral Healthcare Hospital in Las Vegas include:

  • Comprehensive assessment
  • Individualized treatment plan
  • Education regarding diagnosis
  • Group therapy focused on helping patients obtain life/coping skills and return to an optimal level of functioning
  • Encouragement of family support and recovery

These outpatient rehab and mental health services deliver a high level of care without hospitalization. They are similar to the components of inpatient care, but allow Las Vegas-area patients to live at home and spend weekends with their families, while getting daily or every-other-day treatment at the same time. Depending on the level of care required, outpatient treatment for addiction or mental illness may last two to three weeks, but as progress is made, schedules can be adjusted to meet the needs of each situation.  

The therapy included in our outpatient treatment programs teach life skills and management techniques for mood disorders, cravings, stress, relapse prevention, post-acute withdrawal syndrome, coping, and addiction. This education and care is provided by a qualified team of licensed clinical social workers, registered nurses, activity therapists, certified alcohol and drug counselors, registered dietitians, case managers, and psychiatrists. Each focuses on listening to our patients and helping them understand their illness.

Outpatient addiction and rehab aren’t the right type of care for everyone dealing with chemical dependency and mental illness. Contact our assessment team to find out the best course of treatment for your situation.
