If you are a woman who is determined to start a whole new life for yourself, enrolling in the intensive outpatient recovery program at Boca House Recovery Awakenings can make it happen.[contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
For over 12 years, we have been the recovery center of long-term sobriety for thousands of women. Many of our former residents have gone on to lead exemplary lives, and a few have returned to make a career out of helping others right here at Boca House Recovery Programs.
The goal of Awakenings for Women is to reach out and help as many people as we can, which is why we offer more than one recovery program option. One of those options is our Intensive Outpatient Program, or IOP, geared toward women who may not be able to stay at our facilities full-time.
What It Is
Our IOP offers a way to benefit from our recovery program with or without staying at one of our residences. Living in your own home remains a feasible option, as long as it provides a safe and comfortable environment that is conducive to your new life in recovery.
The outpatient program allows you to embark in the physical, mental and spiritual recovery process we offer to all women who want it. You receive the same services and support you would as a resident of Recovery Awakenings, but with the ability to continue meeting your responsibilities at home while you progress through our program.
Services and Support
Our experienced and compassionate staff provides the backbone of our programs. Even if you choose not to reside full-time at our facilities, we are still available for counseling, one-on-one discussions and group sessions.
We can provide guidance, assistance or even simply lend an ear. Former residents who graduated from Awakenings for Women often return to become part of our staff to help others as their new careers. Another modicum of support comes from the entire Awakenings for Women community, made of women like yourself who have struggled with addiction, hardship or trauma. That means no matter what you’re going through, it’s highly likely we’ve been there, done that, and can show you a way of life that works for recovery.
Why It Works
Our IOP is as effective as our inpatient programs because they are both built on the same foundation. A 12-step recovery program offers that foundation, with a continuous progression of growth that can change your outlook, way of thinking and entire life. We have found the 12-step recovery program to be effective for overcoming all types of addiction as well as way to move past trauma and hardships.
The steps provide a means to change your life by enhancing your spiritual well-being. Spiritual well-being, in the simplest sense, can be viewed as an inner peace and serenity that comes from living a life that is free of mental debris and focused on doing the next right thing.
Our programs offer a number of tools for coping with situations that may have in the past prompted you to run toward addiction. We instead help you see you no longer have to run toward a substance, nor do you have to run from anything. Awakenings for Women teaches you how to stand strong and face issues that may have haunted you in order to purge their power and heal your soul.
The state of your mind and body are also enhanced through our outpatient programs. Your body receives immediate relief once you stop engaging in behaviors that harmed you physically. Your mind begins to clear as we teach you a new way of thinking, accompanied by a new way of behaving. We teach you to live in the solution, not the problem, and how to pass on your experience to help others. Problems that used to stymie you become issues you can now handle with grace. Thoughts that used to plague you may no longer even enter your head. An addiction or way of life that used to control you no longer has to be your master.
12 Step Principals
Everyone at Boca House Recovery Programs, and specifically the Awakenings program for women, live a life according to the 12-step principles of recovery. A balance of addiction recovery, treatment, school or work along with many social activities fills every day with fun, challenge and excitement..
Our intensive outpatient program is available with or without a structured, safe and secure housing component. IOP is a step up from simple sober living, and provides regular counseling and treatment sessions with our certified credentialed addiction treatment staff. Once our female clients complete the intensive outpatient program, many will then transfer to our sober living homes and long term after care program.
Nothing has proved to be more effective in determining an excellent outcome in sobriety, than those who are able to stay in a sober structured environment for as long as possible.
