We are you. People seeking Recovery want hope. And results. They want to know the people they are entrusting their lives to understand what they’ve been through and what they are going through now. We’ve walked in your shoes. We’ve lied, cheated, stole, broke the law, manipulated, complicated, and frustrated families, friends, and ourselves. But we also got up and tried again. And again. We know the desperation. We’ve cried the same tears of hopelessness, disappointment, and fear. But we found hope with long term Recovery. And we hold onto it with dear life. We can help you get through it because we’ve been through it. We know Recovery because we live Recovery.

Intensive OutpatientOur Intensive Outpatient Program in South Jersey focuses on community integration and relapse prevention. Victory Bay offers two Intensive Outpatient options: IOP-5 and IOP- 3. The IOP-5 program is five days per week and averages 2-3 weeks in length, depending on a client’s progress and needs. IOP-3 is a step down from IOP-5. IOP-3 consists of three half day group and individual therapy sessions per week. These flexible outpatient addiction treatment programs give clients the opportunity to gain and maintain stability and sobriety within their communities. While in IOP, it is common that a person will be working a part time job or going to school. IOP schedules can be very flexible, allowing each person to work their personal life around their therapy. Commonly, a person will still be going to IOP when they are a resident in a sober living home. Rather than being spit right back into life with a few coping skills, IOP creates a smooth transition from treatment to full time work or school.
OutpatientThis treatment is usually combined with other treatment methods or as follow-up support. Therapy and counseling along with once a week group, can help you identify the root cause of your drug use, repair relationships and learn healthier coping skills. Treatment includes behavioral therapy, group or individual therapy, and family counseling, as well as didactic educational session.
