Are you seeking outpatient treatment for your addiction? Whether you’re transitioning from residential treatment or seeking treatment for the first time, outpatient rehab can give you the flexibility to recover from substance abuse and manage everyday life at the same time.

But then the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak happened and social distancing became the norm. The isolation that comes with COVID-19 is a natural struggle for anyone dealing with substance abuse. While it can be tough to deal with the added anxiety and uncertainty, there is a silver lining. Many businesses have closed until further notice except for essential businesses like addiction treatment centers, giving you more time to focus on treatment and recovery.

At Footprints Beachside Recovery, we’re bringing expert addiction treatment straight to your door. We now offer a virtual intensive outpatient program (IOP) to help your recovery journey all from the comfort of your own home. Keep reading to discover the benefits you can expect from our virtual IOP.

4 Benefits of Virtual Outpatient Treatment

Before we get going on the benefits of virtual outpatient treatment, there’s a few important things to note. Virtual IOP isn’t for everyone. We recommend our IOP for clients who have either completed residential treatment or don’t need a full continuum of care.

But if our expert staff thinks that you’re a good fit for our virtual outpatient treatment, you can expect the following benefits:

1. Peace of Mind During Recovery

Anxiety and stress can often complicate your recovery journey. And that was before you found yourself caught in the wake of COVID-19. Now new worries about your health and safety are starting to cast a shadow over daily life. But with our virtual outpatient treatment, you’ll be able to work on your recovery from the safety of your own home.

The added stress about the spread of COVID-19 won’t be an issue. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that you’re getting the addiction treatment you need while following all of the social distancing recommendations to protect yourself and others from the virus.

2. The Ability to Still Build Meaningful Connections

There’s a saying that addiction recovery is all about connection. But with social distancing and non-essential businesses shut down, socialization and connection can be hard to come by. A large part of fighting isolation during recovery is finding a support network. Our virtual outpatient treatment program will give you the opportunity to connect with other people who know what you’re going through.

The goal is to give you the ability to create your own support network to strengthen your recovery. During your virtual IOP sessions, you’ll work with therapists on your recovery and be able to connect with other clients who understand what you’re going through.

3. Keep Up with Your Responsibilities

Virtual intensive outpatient treatment gives you the ability to keep up with all of your daily responsibilities. And chances are, COVID-19 has given you more to keep up with. Schools across the country are closing and it’s hard to find everything you need at the grocery store. Online IOP gives you the time and opportunity to stay on top of your daily responsibilities while getting the help you need.

Plus, keeping up with work and household responsibilities can be a healthy outlet during your recovery. You’ll be more prepared for the transition back into normal life.

4. Virtual Outpatient Treatment Supports Social Distancing

We all know the dangers posed by COVID-19. That’s why the CDC recommends social distancing to help prevent the speed at which the virus spreads. But we all have those moments where getting out and meeting friends and family helps us stay balanced. Those connections could be one of the main reasons your addiction hasn’t completely spiraled out of control or why you haven’t relapsed.

The good news is that our virtual outpatient treatment covers both of those concerns. By getting help from your home, you’ll be able to keep up with CDC recommendations while growing connections with others every day during the week.
