Intensive Outpatient Programs

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is dedicated to helping individuals develop healthier coping skills and build a recovery support network. Participants can continue to work, attend school, and tend to the duties of daily life. This nine-hour-a-week (three hours a day, three days a week) program allows patients the opportunity to practice their new skills while still benefiting from the support and accountability of treatment. This program allows participants to receive treatment on a part-time, yet intensive schedule. We believe that recovery and life are one and the same and it is for that reason that daily life is an integral therapeutic component of treatment.
