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.
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.
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
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.
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.
