Virginia Outpatient Addiction Treatment

Intensive Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment Programs

Our continuing care, or outpatient addiction treatment program, provides treatment for those that have engaged in the continuum of care at Bridging the Gaps or another treatment facility. The outpatient recovery program provides accountability, support, and structure for maintaining long-term sobriety. This is the lowest level of care offered at Bridging the Gaps and is meant to provide you with a support system as you transition out of our recovery residences.

What is Outpatient Addiction Treatment?

Outpatient addiction treatment is an effective form of substance abuse care that allows the patient to receive individualized treatment while still living at home. Unlike residential programs where patients must stay in a facility for a period of time, outpatient addiction treatment enables individuals to attend counseling, therapy, and other forms of recovery programming without having to leave their community.

IOP vs. Outpatient Care

At Bridging the Gaps, we offer both intensive outpatient (IOP) and outpatient care programs, as both of these programs provide structured plans to help clients maintain sobriety.

The primary distinction between our IOP and outpatient care is that IOP requires a higher commitment level than our outpatient program. Our outpatient program provides a slightly less intensive approach while still providing structure, accountability, and support throughout your journey. No matter which level of care you choose, we are dedicated to helping you achieve long-term sobriety by providing supportive services tailored to your specific needs.

What Kind of Addictions Does Our Outpatient Program Treat?

Our outpatient addiction treatment services are designed to treat a wide range of substance use disorders, from mild to severe. Our experienced team can provide care for individuals who are dependent on alcohol, opioids, benzodiazepines, cocaine, and other stimulants, hallucinogens, and marijuana. We also offer help for those dealing with polysubstance abuse and co-occurring mental health issues.
