Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Intensive Outpatient Treatment (also known as IOP for “Intensive Outpatient Program”) is a primary treatment program recommended in some circumstances by a clinical and medical assessment. Our IOP treatment is tailored to the individual by a licensed clinician who uses information gained in the introductory interview and assessment. The treatment plan for you will be determined through a clinical and medical assessment that may include interviews, questionnaires, medical histories, bio-psychosocial evaluations, urine and/or breath analysis, and more. The more detailed our knowledge is of your total state of being, the better your treatment plan will be.

Our IOP enables individuals in recovery to continue their recovery therapies following successful detox, on a part-time yet intensive schedule, designed to accommodate work and family life.

A part-time yet intensive schedule, designed to accommodate work and family life.

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is designed for people who are struggling with co-occurring disorders and problems associated with addictions, and/or substance use and abuse. Eligibility for the IOP is determined by a mandatory clinical/medical assessment, which is conducted at the center as part of the admissions process. The intensive outpatient treatment program is customized for each person, guided by the initial assessment and follow up. Our IOP usually runs for a period of 8 (eight) weeks but every patient is different. Every patient’s treatment program is designed just for them, so may run more or less than eight weeks if needed.

The IOP treatment regimen includes:

  • Day & Evening Programs, 2 – 5 days per week, 3 hours per day
  • Supervised random drug/alcohol screens
  • Comprehensive family program provides education, support and multi–family therapy
  • Relapse prevention program to promote abstinence throughout the weekend
  • Psychiatric evaluations and follow-up sessions are provided, as needed

IOP is a more intense level of treatment than regular outpatient services or a lower level of care from partial hospital programs. IOP is a three-hour a day program that meets 3-5 times a week. This level of care is used as a transition back to the community along with strengthening acquired coping skills or introducing new ones.
