IOP’s can often incorporate adjunctive therapy as part of the patient’s care plan. Adjunctive therapy can involve group activities where patients can use nonverbal and creative media such as music, dance, and crafts, for therapeutic purposes. Other adjunctive therapies can include acupuncture and biofeedback. Often, medication is also incorporated into the plan in the forms of mindfulness, visualization, breath awareness and other similar methods. Such methods can be used to aid in stress reduction, craving reduction and management, as well as improving a client’s general emotional and psychological functions.
