Fairfield Psychological Associates Virginia Beach IOP
Our Fairfield IOP is designed to address the unique needs and challenges associated with the members of our military, law enforcement, and first responder clients. Successful treatment outcomes have been strongly linked to the therapeutic alliance formed between the practitioner and client. Our clinicians all have a military/law enforcement background as well as extensive experience treating this population.
Our military IOP program (M-IOP) is based on the relapse prevention model developed by Terence T. Gorski, an internationally recognized expert on substance abuse and mental health, the principles of 12-Step recovery and the lessons learned from working directly with this population for over two decades. For the safety and therapeutic peace of mind of our clients, all M-IOP sessions are held in a non-disclosed location and are not open to the general public.
Our program specializes in treating populations who have traditionally shown an increased level of resistance to treatment that is founded in a distrust of supporting systems. All too often, command support is underutilized due to the fear that it may limit career advancement. For veterans, this mindset of distrust does not end with their service commitment but is carried with them as they navigate the private sector.
While in M-IOP, we ask that you attend all prescribed groups on a regular basis. In addition, we ask that you interact with your peers in a helpful manner. In treatment you will gain the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to maintain a successful life. You will be discharged with a plan of care appropriate for your continued success.
