Intensive Outpatient Program for Addiction

A six-week program to treat substance-use disorder.

In our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), you receive structured, supportive treatment for addiction (substance-use disorder) in a group setting while staying at home with your loved ones. This program is the second-highest level of care our team offers for adults and the highest level available for our teen patients.

We offer the Intensive Outpatient Program at the following locations:

Who is a good candidate for the Intensive Outpatient Program?

You may be a good candidate if your substance-use disorder is relatively stable but you need additional support and structure. You may step up to the Intensive Outpatient Program if you’ve previously tried addressing addiction on an outpatient basis without success.

What to expect from the Intensive Outpatient Program

All of our patients first receive a thorough assessment. This assessment, which includes both a physical exam and a psychosocial exam, helps us create personalized treatment plans.

The Intensive Outpatient Program includes three treatment sessions per week for six weeks. Each session lasts three hours for a total of nine hours of treatment each week. Teen patients’ sessions are in the afternoons, while adult patients meet in the evenings. We schedule individual and family sessions separately as needed.

In addition to therapy, your treatment plan may include detoxification or medication-assisted treatment.

If you’re successful in the Intensive Outpatient Program, you’ll step down to our outpatient addiction treatment program for additional care. Adult patients who need more intensive support may need to step up to our 24-hour residential (inpatient) treatment program.
