Gulf Breeze Recovery’s Intensive Outpatient Program

Gulf Breeze Recovery Launches Holistic Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) Care for Patients Seeking Non-Twelve Step Recovery in NW Florida.

From our press release:

January 23, 2020

Gulf Breeze, FL – Gulf Breeze Recovery, Inc., a substance abuse recovery facility in Gulf Breeze, Florida that specializes in overcoming chronic relapse, today announced the introduction of intensive outpatient (IOP) and outpatient care to provide people struggling with drug and alcohol addiction an avenue to change their lives without disrupting their work or family life.

Intensive outpatient and outpatient care at Gulf Breeze Recovery provides holistic, individualized treatment in a non-twelve-step format to target the underlying causes of addiction in patients struggling with drugs and alcohol. Intensive outpatient and outpatient care are distinct from traditional residential rehabilitation in that they do not require the patient to live in a facility full-time.

“Introducing these programs at Gulf Breeze Recovery is an important step to serving more patients in Northwest Florida whose responsibilities prohibit them from moving into a care facility,” said Gulf Breeze Recovery’s CEO Barnett Gilmer.

“The Intensive outpatient program and outpatient care settings allow people access to our program who wouldn’t have access if it were only offered in a residential setting,” said Gilmer “It’s insurance-friendly, affordable, and less intrusive on a person’s time. With these programs, people can still live their life while changing their life.”

Typically hidden as a misunderstanding in thought, often deeply covered up, we help expose it in a one-on-one setting that allows a person to speak personally with their own confidential therapist.

Nothing just takes a snap of the finger. The drugs have been the snap of the finger, and a short term solution so people get accustomed to a quick, albeit temporary fix. Our intensive outpatient program takes a little time, but the process is going to help a person go through a real and lasting transformation to recovery.

In addition, the intensive outpatient program can include our residential detoxification program. A guest can spend a few days in our medical detox if needed where they are in a safe, substance-free environment. When ready, they can start their intensive outpatient immediately.

The intensive outpatient program allows us to help more people, using the same non-12 step program performed in the residential setting. Typically three nights a week, for a recommended 12 week period, some of the IOP Features include:

  • One on one therapy
  • Family counseling
  • Course room and speakers
  • Nutrition education and counseling

The beauty of our IOP is you don't even need to complete a residential program to participate. It's offered to the people who live in the area, or within driving distance from our Gulf Breeze, Florida location.

People can sign up for as long as they wish, but the recommend time frame is 12-weeks for our intensive outpatient program, and those that want to go longer, can. It's very flexible, that's the beauty of it. Most people think of outpatient treatment as a group setting, where people sit in a circle, and bare their soul. Our graduates know better. Our group settings help lay down the principles that get to the core, underlying cause of the addiction, or problem with alcohol, and helps correct the misunderstanding at the source.
