Intensive Outpatient Programs Explained

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.

Age-Specific Care

We are age-specific, not gender-specific. We focus on the unique circumstances that teens and young adults face.

Evidence-Based Therapy

We only use treatment interventions that have been scientifically proven to provide consistent, lasting recovery.

Small Group Sizes

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.

Online Treatment Programs

Our virtual IOP program offers the same programming that we offer in person, all online – this is ideal for those who live too far to drive to an addiction center, have transportation issues, or have health concerns that make in-person treatment challenging.
