Intensive Outpatient

Intensive Outpatient

Available to new clients who meet the criteria and existing clients who are transitioning out of higher levels of care, the Intensive Outpatient Program is an “intensive” eight week program.

Group meetings and individual therapy sessions are included, along with regular
treatment plan review.

The intensive outpatient program can provide the treatment you need to move forward in your life when you or a loved one is facing addiction. The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is provided to those who qualify for our outpatient program based on their current situation, which could include family obligations, treatment needs, and financial obligations.

What is Intensive Outpatient Treatment?

The intensive outpatient treatment program is a treatment solution that allows you to live your daily life, but still obtain treatment to fight against an addiction. In IOP, you meet approximately three times a week for about eight weeks with a primary therapist.

Each treatment session lasts about three hours, during which time you will obtain basic treatment and review your goals and treatment plan. The duration of the treatment plan can vary depending on your own needs.

During the treatment, you will meet with the primary therapist individually and attend group therapy with others in the outpatient program.

How Does Outpatient Treatment Help?

IOP is different from a residential program because you do not live in the rehab facility. As a result, the treatment plan focuses on meeting up regularly and helping you stay on track to meet your recovery goals one step at a time.

The intensive outpatient program provides you with the support and guidance you need to continue moving forward in life. The therapist provides information; support and suggestions that can help you work through the underlying causes and reasons that you abuse drugs or alcohol. During group therapy, you are able to discuss your concerns and gain support from others who understand your situation.

Our intensive outpatient program can improve your chances of recovery by offering professional support and assistance. If you qualify for the Intensive outpatient program, it will give you support and flexibility needed to lead a drug-free lifestyle.
