Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP)

What is the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) serves people with substance use disorders to provide the skills, and knowledge needed for recovery. IOP is a more intensive level of service than traditional outpatient service, but is less intensive than inpatient treatment. It is also designed to treat individuals with co-occurring, mental illness and substance use disorders.

How does IOP work?

The IOP provides nine or more hours of group programming per week (three hours a day, three times a week), mainly made up of counseling and education about substance-related and mental health problems. In addition, each person takes part in an individual, marital or family counseling session one hour a week and case management services as needed.

Who may benefit from these services?

The IOP is provided to adults age 18 and over and their family members. Pregnant women are given priority and are scheduled within 48 hours of referral. Other priority populations are people suffering from intravenous substance use, and individuals being discharged from detoxification facilities or inpatient treatment.

  • At least nine hours per week of a mix of recovery-based group process, trauma-informed interventions, and psycho-education
  • Family services and/or multi-family services with family members or significant others
