IOP stands for an intensive outpatient program. An intensive outpatient program is composed of regularly scheduled sessions that target addiction and any underlying mental health disorders. An intensive outpatient program also serves as a step-down form of treatment after an individual completes a more intensive level of care but can be in their own home environment.
IOPs work with you to provide the right amount of flexibility. Perhaps you have a child to take care of at home or evening classes at school. We’ll work with you to develop a schedule that doesn’t interfere with your responsibilities. Unlike residential treatment, individuals recovering from substance use disorders are not required to live at the treatment facility during recovery..
However, patients will also have the option to reside at the facility to receive treatment services if that’s what they choose. We encourage you to reach out to our professionally trained and caring staff so we can help you find the right treatment. Intensive outpatient treatment may be ideal for one patient and not the other. Each person’s addiction recovery journey is unique.
