An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) typically consists of 9 hours of clinical treatment per week, usually spread over 3 to 5 days. Patients attend treatment part-time during the day or evening, attending group and individual therapy sessions. During non-treatment hours’ patients live at home and can work part-time jobs. IOP is a step between residential treatment and outpatient treatment. This program offers the benefit of continuing regular, frequent therapeutic addiction treatment for clients while also allowing them to slowly adjust to building a regular daily routine. IOP is a great option for clients who have recently completed inpatient/residential treatment or those who still desire immersive treatment and support as they re-assimilate into society.
Each patient receives an individualized treatment plan designed to address issues specifically to them. Daily skills include:
- Relapse prevention
- Anger management
- Managing cravings and triggers
- Drug refusal skills
- Group therapy
