What is IOP Treatment?

IOP is a longer-term program lasting 8-12 weeks that allows clients to schedule treatment while maintaining their daily schedules.

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 strive to help young people become more like the person they want to be, without using substances to get there.

Depression Treatment

Depression is more than just feeling down for a few days — symptoms are long lasting and can affect you in many ways.

Anxiety & Bi-Polar Treatment

Anxiety disorders are thought patterns of fear, dread, and uneasiness that affect other aspects of your life.

Trauma & PTSD Treatment

Trauma is the emotional response to a specific event like an accident, sexual abuse, or a natural disaster.

ADHD & Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment

ADHD is marked by difficulty focusing, controlling impulsive behaviors, and over-activity.

Substance Use Treatment Options

Marijuana Treatment

Marijuana has become a way to self-medicate for underlying issues and it’s easy to become dependent on its use.

Alcohol Treatment

Binge drinking & heavy alcohol use are especially problematic for the growth and development of young people.

Opioid Treatment

Opioid misuse occurs when a person uses heroin or misuses prescription pain relievers like hydrocodone, oxycodone, and morphine.

Stimulant Treatment

Commonly abused stimulants include cocaine, methamphetamines, and prescription stimulants, like Ritalin, Adderall, and Concerta.
