Intensive Outpatient Treatment

Intensive Outpatient Treatment Programs (IOP) are designed for persons in need of intensive and structured treatment, but who may not require a residential or inpatient program or have recently discharged from an inpatient program.  The program addresses important recovery concepts including, recovery management and relapse prevention, twelve-step work, improving understanding of symptoms of addiction, identifying and reducing emotional and behavioral obstacles to recovery, and improving communication skills.  Programs are provided during the day or evening three to five times per week.  The average length of treatment is two to four weeks.
