Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Programs

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is for individuals who are living in a safe and supportive environment while participating in the program.

The Outpatient Programs are managed by our sister organization Gateways to Transformation. 

The IOP program is a three to six month program available for clients who do not need to come into residential treatment and who are living in a safe, supportive, sober home. IOP is also available for former residential clients wishing to continue their healing journey. This program is five hours per day, four days each week. IOP clients will be in session with residential clients as well as receive individual sessions with a therapist. There will be monthly evaluations to determine the client’s progress in reaching his or her goals.

A Typical Outpatient Treatment Program Includes:

  • Participants live at home, or on their own away from the care facility
  • Support is generally scheduled for less than 9 hours per week, often 6 hours per week for teens
  • Programming length can vary, but is usually no less than 8 weeks following completion of IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program)
  • Recovery skills, life skills, ongoing therapy, and motivation enhancement are common goals of aftercare
  • Works best for participants actively engaged and highly functioning in day to day life; offers tune-up attention to keep individuals on track and help prevent relapse

With General Outpatient care, participants live in the community and travel to a facility or office to receive support from a network of professionals. Aftercare is usually less than 9 hours per week for adults and less than 6 hour per week for teens.  Sessions and activities tend to feature individual, group, and family therapy sessions facilitated by a network of clinical care givers.

Time spent in General Outpatient care tends to focus on maintaining a healthy lifestyle and relationships, integrating life skills and motivation, and preventing relapse. Program approach can be highly varied depending on the individual needs of the participants.  The duration of General Outpatient programs is typically around 12 weeks, and is often no less than 8 weeks. Some participants opt to continue utilizing the support of general outpatient care beyond the typical 12 weeks to help sustain recovery. Medication management is generally not highlighted in Aftercare.
