Outpatient Drug & Alcohol Rehab


Intensive Outpatient

Intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment is non-residential care designed to provide continuing support for clients on their recovery journey. Intensive outpatient treatment is ideal for those who have completed a residential or partial hospitalization program and who want to continue treatment while working or going to school.

Some clients may be eligible for our intensive outpatient program without completing a residential treatment program first. For clients with a co-occurring mental health diagnosis, such as generalized anxiety or bipolar disorder, we recommend starting with our partial hospitalization program (PHP) before moving into our Hilton Head outpatient rehab program.

We tailor our South Carolina outpatient drug rehab programs to suit the needs of each client. Our IOP program may include:

• Individual and group counseling sessions
• Behavioral therapy sessions
• Medical and mental health treatment and monitoring
• Pharmacological tools
• Life skills training
• Access to 24-hour crisis care

BriteLife clients stay in intensive outpatient treatment for an average of 3 to 6 weeks. During this time clients receive treatment up to 7 times a week and receive an average of 9 hours of support therapy each week.

Intensive outpatient therapy includes a combination of individual and group sessions in a safe, supportive environment. Our goal is to empower clients with the tools and information they need to resist relapse. We maintain a low client-to-counselor ratio and do everything possible to accommodate clients’ schedules and ensure they receive the best care possible.

Substance addictions we treat

No two situations are exactly alike, and addiction can manifest in different ways. That’s why the team at BriteLife personalizes treatment plans to suit each client’s needs. We’ll work with you to understand which approach, tools, and techniques work best for you. Our priority is giving you the best chance of success for long-term sobriety. Our clinical staff is trained to diagnose and treat co-occurring mental health disorders, also critical for successful addiction recovery. We treat addiction to:

  • Alcoholism
  • Benzodiazepine
  • Meth
  • Crack
  • Opioids
  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • Prescription Drugs
Why it’s important

A critical step in your recovery

Our intensive outpatient program helps clients develop positive habits and reinforces the lessons and skills they learned in their earlier recovery program. We empower clients with the tools, life skills, and resources they need to transition back into the general community and achieve their goals. Our program provides a balance of structure and freedom. We monitor clients and make adjustments as needed.

It’s not always easy figuring out which program is best for you—a residential treatment program or intensive outpatient treatment. It’s why we strongly urge you to speak with a recovery professional. They’ll discuss your situation with you, evaluate your condition, and guide you to the program that will best address your specific needs.

An intensive outpatient program is not right for everyone, but if any of the following situations apply to you, IOP may be a good choice:

• You’re not physically dependent on the substance
• You’re not experiencing any co-occurring mental health disorders
• You’ve never participated in a treatment program and relapsed
• You’ve only been using the substance for a brief period

Our intensive outpatient programs in Hilton Head are some of the best in South Carolina. We’ll help you determine whether it’s the best choice for you or whether our inpatient treatment program is the better option.
