Why Intensive Outpatient Rehab?

Reach out and take the first step towards long lasting recovery.

Why Intensive Outpatient Rehab?

Approximately 15% of Americans experience some form of substance abuse. Drug and alcohol addiction is an increasing issue within the United States, and only a small percentage will receive the help that they need. There are those seeking treatment that don’t necessarily need or have time to stay at a rehabilitation facility. In that type of situation, outpatient rehab is a viable option. 

Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) provide the possibility of treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, without the need to stay at a treatment center 24/7. Someone who participates in an outpatient program will be living at home and continue going to work or school. They will have the ability to honor their commitments outside of rehab while still receiving the benefits of recovery programs. 

Outpatient treatment programs will usually provide 19 hrs a week for services and supply flexible schedules. At Miramar Recovery, our patients will enjoy all of the various therapies and activities that we have to offer.

Our goal at Miramar Recovery is to help you achieve long term recovery and encourage relapse prevention. We teach our patients a variety of skills while they are involved in our outpatient care. These skills include recognizing unhealthy behaviors, developing self-awareness, problem-solving, and coping. By learning these, our patients become self-assured, confident individuals who are better equipped to manage their addiction.

Our Costa Mesa outpatient treatment center provides our patients and their family members with the tools that are needed to achieve the healthy lifestyle they desire.

Medication Management

Our Costa Mesa outpatient program will provide prescription medication to assist our patients in their recovery. Our highly qualified staff will monitor those taking medication and teach them how to manage their medications. Offering this service ensures that patients will not be tempted to abuse prescription drugs or develop a dependency on them.  It can be challenging to prevent relapse while taking an outpatient drug, especially since our patients will not be monitored 24/7. To help with this, we create an accurate medication list. 

A medication list was presented by NCBI during a study and was defined as, “the clinic’s chart medication list contained the same list of prescription medications as the patient’s list (or bag of prescription medications); i.e., none were missing from the clinic list nor were there medications listed that the patient was not taking.” By creating this list, our rehab facility can ensure that the correct type and amount of prescription drugs are being taken.

Our patients will learn about accountability and responsibility as well as management skills through this process. These experiences will help build a better foundation for recovery.


Whether participating in an inpatient or outpatient rehab, therapy is a vital part of treatment. In our Costa Mesa outpatient program, we use different types of therapies to help our patients. 

For our outpatient program, we provide group therapy, which can include other members that are participating in rehab or family members.

We also offer individual therapy, where our patients meet with one of our therapists in a one on one setting.

Our therapists use cognitive behavioral therapy to help our patients with inaccurate thinking. By being aware of negative reactions to situations, patients can learn to modify their thinking. Once they learn to change their thought process, they can begin positively reacting to triggers.

Group therapy offers patients a support group of people who are experiencing similar situations. Group therapy encourages community and growth, challenging those in the group to rely on others for support.
