Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
What is IOP?
The person you love might be physically healthy, and the person might live in a supportive and safe home. Those are all great benefits in terms of recovery. However, a structured, time-intensive treatment program may still be the appropriate level of care. Even with a supportive home environment, some recovering individuals may still have an exceptionally high risk of relapse without intensive drug treatment.
An IOP can fill that need. SAMHSA reports that IOPs provide at least 9 hours of therapy per week, typically delivered in 3-hour blocks.7 That means IOPs require a great deal of work from a person in recovery. These are not simple rehab programs your loved one could complete with an already packed schedule. These are programs that combine the intensity of inpatient care with the comforts of home.
- Group therapy (psychoeducational groups, skill-development groups, stress management, relapse prevention techniques, etc).
- Individual counseling.
- Education about addiction.
- Medication management and medical treatment.
- Ambulatory detoxification.
- 12-step groups.
- Employment training.
People may transition to an IOP as a ““step-down” level of care after completing an inpatient/residential program or enroll in an IOP as their first attempt at recovery.
