The Intensive Outpatient Program – or IOP – is the level of care that is slightly less structured than PHP. At this level of care, adults typically engage in 9 or more hours of treatment per week although we develop all of our treatment plans around the individuals needs. At this stage of treatment, clients have full access to all of our clinical modalities and services including many different wellness activities including all of the options in our PHP program.
Following a thorough assessment by a licensed clinical professional, clients attend 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. Family members are encouraged to attend on Thursday evening from 7pm–8:15pm in a family member-only therapeutic setting. Clients and families are required to attend at least 4 family groups on Saturdays from 9am–12pm to further an understanding of family dynamics and how the family system plays a big role in early recovery from addiction and mental health issues.
Individuals in IOP are given more freedom and are asked to collaborate with facilitators to create their own unique recovery plan. This is the stage where individuals are more stable and able to begin the plans that were laid out in PHP and IOP meetings. This level of treatment helps ease the individual back into life in an easy and gentle manner. New habits and tools help these people sustain long-term sobriety while working on their professional, educational, and mental health goals.
The average length of an Intensive Outpatient Program is around two months, with individuals that have varying lengths of sobriety (2-6 months). Clients may receive individual sessions, family sessions, and may also be covered by insurance for holistic sessions including EMDR, BioSound, yoga, or acupuncture as needed. Following a thorough assessment by a licensed clinical professional, an individual will attend 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.
