Albuquerque, New Mexico -

Icarus Behavioral Health of Albuquerque, New Mexico has established a reputation for being a top choice in its area for those seeking recovery from mental health and substance use disorders. It's also a recovery center that is not afraid to adapt and change in an effort to better serve its patients. Evidence of this comes from the fact that this behavioral health facility has just announced the launching of two new intensive outpatient programs (IOP). One which will be located in Albuquerque and another in Rio Rancho.

A spokesperson for Icarus Behavioral Health said the staff and employees at their facility are very excited about these two new IOPs because it will allow them to be able to help more members of their community, in more ways, with these expanded IOP offerings. It's an Albuquerque intensive outpatient program that’s designed to help those with mental health and addiction issues that do not like the restrictive nature of in-patient treatments or have family, work, or school obligations that would prevent them from undergoing residential treatment. She also mentioned that IOP programs are also often used as a step down from residential treatment for their inpatient clients as well as for those that have other reasons as to why they need flexible drug and alcohol addiction support. It was also emphasized that even though these are outpatient-based programs, they still meld their flexible nature with a high degree of accountability. The spokesperson stated that’s why those that have entered Icarus Behavioral Health’s outpatient treatments so far have experienced a high degree of success with their IOPs. Some of the benefits that these newly launched intensive outpatient treatments offer includes continued medication management, individual therapy for personalized help, group therapy that helps those recovering receive sober support, and it even allows patients to practice what they learn in real-world settings.

A large majority of the clients that have chosen to undergo residential mental health treatment with them often find this type of treatment to be the first and most significant step on their road to recovery.
