Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Program Overview

Anyone considering treatment for an addiction must choose what kind of program will best serve their treatment needs, starting with the question of whether they need inpatient versus outpatient care. Inpatient residential care is a highly structured, more intensive level of care that requires 24/7 residence in a rehab facility. Outpatient treatment, on the other hand, is typically very part-time, as a much less intensive level of care—in many cases comprising only a few hours of therapy per week—that can be undertaken while living at home.

Determining what is best for you or your loved one has a lot to do with what stage of addiction is presenting.

What Is an Intensive Outpatient Program?

An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is a transitional steppingstone program between inpatient and outpatient care. This is the stage where independence is re-established. As the next level of care after PHP for clients, our IOP combines the benefits of both inpatient and outpatient rehab care:

  • Our treatment facility offers the added, built-in support of a peer support community and safe, sober living environment
  • The same group and individual therapies offered in our inpatient rehab program, only in a less intensive, part-time capacity (from 9am to 12pm on weekday mornings at our facility)
  • Greater independence and freedom to pursue next vocational steps in preparing for life after rehab
  • Career counseling, resume building, job and vocational preparation, and other key life skills necessary to succeed both at life and in recovery.
