Local installation of .rpms using YUM

I'm asking this question cautiously because I don't want to get this wrong.

I have a program_name.rpm file saved locally on my server (CentOS 6.5).

I have installed it previously just by navigating to it and using yum install program_name.rpm which worked fine but it didn't give me any option to specify where it is installed.

Is it possible to install this rpm to /opt/some_directory instead of it's default install location?
