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.

You are not a number, that’s why we provide a comfortable setting where your voice can be heard.

Individualized Treatment Plans

No one person is the same, and neither is their recovery journey. Your treatment program will be tailored to your unique needs.

Academic and Vocational Support

We want clients to get the most out of life, which means doing their best in the classroom or at their job.

The Family Component

Recovery involves the entire family, so we provide support for the whole family system.

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.

Drug Rehab 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

Studies have found that binge drinking & heavy alcohol use are problematic for 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.
