Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP)
This program is designed to allow each participant to achieve permanent changes in his/her alcohol and drug using behavior. The program is often used as a first level of intervention or for those who are stepping down from an acute level of care. This is accomplished by addressing issues of lifestyle, attitude and behavior which can undermine the patient’s effort to cope with life without the use of psychoactive substances. Group, individual and family-focused therapies are utilized.
Patients will be eligible for discharge when the following conditions are met or when it is determined by members of the treatment team that continued participation will not be beneficial in achieving the following goals:
- The patient’s emotional or behavioral problems have stabilized to the extent they can be managed through individual outpatient visits.
- The patient is able to recognize the severity of his/her chemical dependency and apply the essential skills necessary to maintain sobriety with post-treatment supportive care.
- The patient has integrated therapeutic techniques which address craving and relapse issues.
- The patient is functioning adequately in the areas of work, social responsibilities and primary relationships.
The program is composed of 12 hours of treatment per week, and is available in the morning, afternoon or evening. This program is designed for the patient to receive the needed treatment with little interruption to work or family responsibilities.
