Intensive Outpatient Programs or IOP programs, treat substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health disorders. IOP offers group therapy and life skills classes for those with substance abuse issues. These programs are intensive due to the schedule and structure of treatment. Most programs will have you meet with clinicians or support groups at least ten hours per week. Unlike inpatient treatment, you will go home at night at the conclusion of your group or counseling. Some IOPs have nighttime availability for individuals who work during the day. IOP programs help you build the skills you need to start your journey in recovery. If you have questions about IOP programs, reach out through the connect page on our website and we will be happy to assist you!
