What Is an Intensive Outpatient Program?

During this time, they participate in a variety of treatment programs and sessions that help them understand their addictions and how to overcome them.

Unlike other levels of care, individuals in an Intensive Outpatient Program live at home and often maintain their livelihoods. For those with busy lives or many obligations, IOP offers an effective way to begin recovery without pausing your life. This is especially beneficial for those where pausing responsibilities isn’t an option.

For those who completed a Residential Treatment program, an Intensive Outpatient Program can also be a fantastic step-down program. IOP allows you to return to your life and begin integrating things you learned in treatment into your everyday routine. An intensive outpatient program also continues to provide you with a support network that you can rely on throughout recovery.

Treatment Modalities in IOP

An IOP offers many of the same treatment modalities as other levels of rehab care. Clients learn about their addictions, relationships, and mental health through a range of addiction therapy services. Some of these include:

Each of these services has a unique approach to helping clients understand their addictions and how to overcome them. Additionally, everyone faces different problems when it comes to addiction and recovery. By tailoring your intensive outpatient program experience, we can ensure that you have the most appropriate addiction treatment for your circumstances.
