Colorado Springs IOP

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in Colorado Springs, CO

Sandstone Care offers an Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program, often shortened to IOP, at our beautiful Colorado Springs location. The program helps young adults start to understand their substance abuse and mental health struggles so they can work to successfully overcome them.

Our Program

The outpatient program curriculum lasts 8-12 weeks and covers the following topics:

  • Self-Value/Discovery/Awareness
  • 3 States of Mind: Emotional, Rational, Wise
  • Emotional Regulation/Management
  • Introduction to the Brain
  • Trauma Education
  • Family
  • Community
  • Relapse Prevention Planning

Each client also receives individual support through bi-weekly sessions with the licensed senior clinician and bi-weekly sessions with the primary family therapist. In addition to our in-person IOP program, we offer it as an online program.

"The goal of our comprehensive IOP program is to address substance use and addiction along with any underlying co-occurring mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression and begin developing good social and vocational habits. We also strive to help these young people become more like the person they want to be, without using substances to get there."
