There are various treatment options for addicts. Your individual counselor or therapist can help you decide which levels of care are necessary (to find an individual counselor or therapist, **click here**). Inpatient treatment is used for acute stabilization of addictive behavior, and would be considered for an individual who cannot maintain sobriety within the confines of their current living and working situations (for more information, **click here**). An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) would serve as a step down level of care. An IOP is intended for the continuation of sobriety behavior while either transitioning back into daily living, or attempting stabilization without entering into inpatient treatment if the severity of addiction does not warrant inpatient care (for more information, **click here**). Inpatient and outpatient programing would most likely include individual therapy combined with the programs. Individual therapy is a form of treatment that can follow each person throughout the recovery process. 

Groups are often a helpful part of the recovery process. Professionally-led groups are useful for further exploring and putting into practice skills that individuals learn in their one-on-one sessions and other programs.

Couples counseling is an important part of recovery. In early recovery, couples work focuses on building safety and trust. After the individual struggling with addiction has reached a stabilization point and maintained recovery using the skills and tools learned in the treatments detailed above, couples work can start building connection in a safe way. Couples counseling is vital to long-term recovery and healing. Talk to your individual counselor or therapist about how to best incorporate couples work into your recovery process.
