In our intensive outpatient (IOP) program, participants attend meetings three to five times per week, for three hours each day. The IOP program is an opportunity to build a comprehensive relapse prevention plan by developing coping skills, identifying warning signs for relapse, building a support network, and more. Our IOP program has a fully developed curriculum with nine (9) dimensions of wellness addressed throughout their time in treatment.

Participants meet with an individual case manager weekly to develop a treatment plan, work towards treatment plan goals, and connect participants with other outside resources like individual therapy or psychiatry. Self-help support group meetings are also encouraged in the program.

Group Options

We currently offer evening and morning group options. Doing so accommodates most patients’ schedules. These groups meet at times that enable IOP attendees to create a recovery-work-life balance for themselves.

The IOP program works as a step-down model decreasing group frequency as patients maintain abstinence, attend groups regularly, and meet treatment plan goals. Eventually, they are ready to step down into our standard outpatient aftercare group.

Thorough Assessments

Our program always begins with a thorough assessment. The evaluation includes relevant tests or referrals for additional services as needed (both during and after the program), giving us a better understanding of the challenges a patient may face in recovery. By addressing these problems, our patients learn new ways to live in the world and can overcome their addictions with new and mindful approaches.

Therapeutic Approach

Our program uses a holistic therapeutic approach including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivation Interviewing (MI), and others that are research-proven to decrease the risk of relapse in those who are most susceptible. These skills and approaches can help those in early recovery decrease cravings, tolerate stress, regulate emotional reactions, and be more effective in developing support. In both our IOP and its aftercare component, we utilize nine (9) dimensions of wellness to address both addiction and mental health topics necessary for the recovery process.

Self-Help Meetings

We strongly encourage patients to attend twelve-step meetings, other self-help meetings, and engage in other community support. While we don’t promote any particular philosophy or spirituality, we see such groups as the most easily accessible support system available to those in recovery. We begin our groups late enough in the morning and early enough in the evening so that those in IOP can attend local a.m. or p.m. meetings.
