~Lifesaving online addiction treatment program is the first of its kind in the country~
Richmond, VA (April 7, 2017)– Williamsville Wellness, a Richmond-based addiction treatment program is proud to announce the launch of smartIOP, the first online intensive outpatient program (IOP) for drug and alcohol abuse licensed by the state of Virginia. The new online IOP is a new feature of their full comprehensive, holistic treatment program for adults with alcohol and other substance-related addictions.
“The mission of Williamsville Wellness is to provide holistic, individualized treatment that offers hope and recovery for those addicted to alcohol and/or other drugs.” comments Robert Cabaniss, Founder and Executive Director of Williamsville Wellness.
SmartIOPis the only online IOP for alcohol and drug addiction licensed by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services. On average, the program can be completed in 6 to 12 weeks.
“To be successful in the treatment of and recovery from addiction, we must make therapy effective, efficient and convenient to live a normal life.” comments Cabaniss.
With ten years of experience in addiction recovery programs, Williamsville Wellness has the most intense one-on-one therapy program, offering 15+ individual sessions a week plus 18 hours of group education, and participation in on and off-site 12-step and SMART recovery meetings every week. IOPs are recognized by the courts and insurance companies as being more effective than outpatient therapy alone. Judges often use IOPs in sentencing to reduce the chance of another conviction and many addicts can benefit from an IOP before trying a 30-day rehabilitation program. Addiction treatment programs can now be covered by Medicaid.
“With more people dying from overdoses than car accidents and the rise in alcoholism across the state, the time is now for our community to help those with addictions get the treatment needed stop using and start living.” says Cabaniss.
