Intensive Outpatient Services

Intensive Outpatient Services

(IOP)

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) provides time limited, multidisciplinary, multimodal structured treatment in an outpatient setting. Such programs are less intensive than a partial hospital program but significantly more intensive than outpatient substance use treatment and outpatient detoxification/medication management.

IOP programs are typically 3 hours per day/3 times a week or more unless during a brief care transition period. Clinical interventions available include individual, couple and family psychotherapy, group therapies, medication management, and psycho-educational services. We offer a variety of referral services with lower level of care providers and housing resources etc. . Active family/significant other involvement is important throughout treatment, unless contraindicated.

Frequency of interventions and treatment modalities occurs based on individual needs. As relapse prevention skills are strengthened, the individual will need a diminishing number of treatment hours. Treatment plans are individualized and focus on stabilization and transition to community outpatient treatment and support groups as needed.
