Intensive Outpatient Program for Substance Use Disorders

For some people seeking treatment for drug and alcohol addiction, an intensive outpatient program may be a good approach. In this program, the patients visit the rehab center a few hours a week. An IOP is more intensive in terms of time compared to the standard outpatient programs. However, the patients participating are not supposed to stay in the facility, unlike the inpatient program.

In most cases, this program’s meetings happen over the weekends, either morning or evening. In this IOP program, you will expect treatments such as group therapy, family therapy, individual therapy, and medical management.
