How is a Positive Recovery Center IOP different than any other IOP?Jason Powers, M.DPositive Recovery incorporates Dr Power’s Strength-Based Approach to Addiction Treatment Positive Recovery is a scientifically validated, empowering approach to addiction treatment developed by our chief medical officer Dr. Jason Powers. Positive Recovery is not just a program we offer; it’s part of everything we do.

With daily meditation and exercises, you’ll learn to build on your strengths and create a personally fulfilling recovery path.
Abstinence Is Only Part of the SolutionJason Powers, M.DInterrupting addiction does not build “recovery.” In fact, abstinence is only a small part of recovery. At Positive Recovery Centers, we’re successful in treating addiction because we help you regain your life, the life you were “intended” to live, have deeper, more nurturing relationships with others, and learn how to accept and appreciate yourself while tapping into your strength and wisdom. Positive Recovery strives to discover the deeper reasons behind your use of alcohol or other drugs to help you uncover effective replacements that attend to fundamental needs for meaning and purpose, satisfaction, self-determination, and connection. Doing so enables you to have a life in recovery that is ultimately rewarding and fulfilling enough to be self-sustaining. The empowering interventions used in Positive Recovery help you develop your strengths, teach you to be more optimistic and resilient, and achieve meaningful goals. In short, we give you the tools to flourish in recovery.
What is the difference between IOP and residential treatment?Jason Powers, M.DIntensive Outpatient Programming or IOP is a less acute level of care for people who do not meet criteria for residential treatment or are transitioning from a residential level of care. In residential treatment clients are provided 24/7 supervision while being treated at the facility for a varied period of time; typically 30-90 days. In Intensive Outpatient clients live off site, either at home or in a sober living facility, and receive treatment on site during programming hours which range from 9-12 hours per week; typically lasting 6-8 weeks. Personalized substance abuse disorder care is created to meet the specific needs of the clients we serve. Residential programming allows clients the opportunity to focus on their treatment by being removed from distractions and influences that they have struggled to face while trying to find recovery. As a client receiving care in intensive outpatient programming you are engaged with treatment while navigating through “the day” while having a supportive environment to seek guidance for long term sobriety, achieving optimal wellness.
