INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM (IOP)

ABOUT OUR INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM

The Blanchard Institute’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) focuses on transitioning individuals back into a productive and peaceful lifestyle and teaches clients healthy tools & behavioral patterns to live a substance-free and productive life. As clients progress further into recovery, they will develop an increased awareness of themselves and others, especially in terms of accountability. This program is slightly less structured than PHP.

WHO IT’S FOR

This is where the bulk of everyone’s treatment exists. Individuals in Intensive Outpatient treatment have varying lengths of sobriety, typically between 2 and 6 months. It is meant to help ground everyone, learn everything you need to in an educational setting then move to a gender specific process group. This helps you dig deep into some of the things that have led you to treatment and teaches you how to recover.

The Intensive Outpatient Program is best for those who have family or work commitments. When you are a part of this program you are able to continue with your daily routine and can choose to receive treatment at The Blanchard Institute in the mornings/daytime or evenings, whichever best suits your schedule. Our morning/daytime IOP is traditionally held on MON, TUES & THURS but we offer it  MON-FRI as a step down approach if needed. Our evening IOP is always MON-TUES-THURS.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The Intensive Outpatient Program is designed to be a minimum of 9 hours per week. Typically this will be 3 hours, 3 times a week, but can be 4 to 5 times per week as needed. The average length of the Intensive Outpatient Program is around two months. Clients may receive individual sessions, family sessions, and may also be covered by insurance for holistic sessions including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, BioSound therapy, yoga, or acupuncture as needed. Following a thorough assessment by a licensed clinical professional, an individual will attend treatment across 8-10 weeks for an average of 30-40 sessions of treatment on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 8:45am–12pm or 5:45pm–9pm. The program length will depend on each individual’s progression through the required Intensive Outpatient sessions along with their continued forward movement toward a life of recovery and sobriety.

PROGRAM BENEFITS

In order for treatment to be successful, clients must be actively involved in creating and implementing a plan for their recovery. From the start, our team of professionals work with each client to establish their goals and map out a plan for their treatment.

Clients will set and review specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and timely sobriety goals on a weekly basis throughout IOP treatment. Other personal goals may include improving your physical and/or mental health and redefining professional or educational goals. With our guidance and support, clients will be encouraged to:

  • Demonstrate the Ability to Remain Abstinent from Substance Use
  • Explore the Family System in Recovery
  • Develop & Utilize a Recovery Support Network
  • Develop & Utilize a Relapse Prevention Plan

In addition to creating a goal for lasting recovery through IOP, our team offers support for an individual’s personal goals, such as physical or mental wellness, changing or redefining their profession, or obtaining a higher education.

We Offer AM and PM Sessions for Flexibility!

We know our client’s have busy schedules, that’s why we try to make it as easy as possible for you to get the help you need when you need it.
