Referrals for Supplementary Care when needed
- Clients under 18 years old
- Clients who are in the pre-contemplative or contemplative stage of change
- Clients who have no history of prior addiction treatment and/or no prior exposure to recovery
- Clients who must rely on Medicaid, Medicare, or private insurance to cover most/all treatment fees
Who may be appropriate for Full Life’s IOP but who may need more services during the screening process?
- Clients at risk for withdrawal symptoms will be assessed and referred for medically monitored or medically managed detox as a preliminary step before being approved for IOP.
- Clients with more complex co-occurring disorders will be assessed and may be asked to delay entry into IOP until after records are reviewed and needs clarified. Those with thought disorder, unstable bipolar disorder or trauma may need supplementary services or referral elsewhere for care.
- Clients on medication-assisted treatment will be assessed and may be asked to delay entry into IOP until collaboration with the prescribing provider can be established. Those who demonstrate a commitment to full abstinence other than MAT and willingness to identify and engage with a recovery network are likely to be admitted to IOP while those who are ambivalent may be referred back to the MAT prescribing provider for aftercare.
- Clients who may need to arrange with mLend or some other financing resource to help cover the cost of IOP.
Who is an IDEAL candidate for IOP?
- Clients who absolutely know they have addiction and know they need recovery.
- Clients who have some foundational understanding about addiction and recovery through either prior treatment or prior engagement in 12-step recovery
- Clients with a history of relapse despite active engagement in recovery efforts in the past
- Clients with adequate personal financial resources or a guarantor who is able to cover $3000-$6000 in treatment fees over 3-6 months. Fees for IOP are billed to a credit card on-file at $250/week, and clients are expected to stay in IOP until they have been able to demonstrate 12 continuous weeks of abstinence and recovery engagement.
