IOP is just what it sounds like. It’s intensive, involving 12 hours of treatment each week, for 6 weeks. It’s Outpatient, so clients continue to attend work or school and participate in treatment during the evenings. It’s an effective treatment for those who need more than individual counseling and a community support group, but who are not medically, or otherwise in need of the controlled setting of in-patient treatment.
IOP is based on the twelve step model of treatment. It is also a “psycho-educational” model, which means it blends education about substances, addiction, and building and maintaining sobriety; with treatment. This is a highly interactive program. Clients participate and support one another in learning about their individual history and relationship with the substance(s) that have taken over their lives. During that process, they create a plan for remaining free of that substance, including a “relapse prevention” plan.
During their participation in IOP treatment, clients also begin to attend a community support group, either Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, preparing them for the next steps in maintaining their recovery from addiction. Another part of their treatment is regular meetings with their therapist. Depending upon their treatment plan, those meetings may also include other family members.
To be eligible for IOP, clients must either have completed our Alcohol / Drug Assessment or another comprehensive assessment that recommends an intensive outpatient program as the appropriate treatment for their needs. After that assessment, clients need to complete an Intake session, to orient them to the program.
Upon completion of Phase I of IOP, clients transition to Phase 2 or IOP, also known as Supportive Outpatient or Aftercare.
Morning and Evening Groups are now available
