How the Intensive Outpatient Program Works
Clients entering our intensive outpatient program first meet with admissions, who provide guidance and assist clients with answers for any question they might have.
The first stage of IOP consists of a clinical assessment and treatment planning. The individual assessment is conducted by a clinician and is designed to determine if the client is suitable for treatment.
Once the clinician completes the assessment, the client must then meet with a counselor for a psycho-social assessment. This evaluation enables the counselor to establish goals in collaboration with the client as well as develop a personalized treatment plan.
After the treatment plan and goals are set, the client meets with their assigned psychiatrist for the initial psychiatric evaluation. The psychiatrist will see the client as needed throughout the course of treatment for medication management.
During the intensive outpatient program, clients will spend individual time with a therapist to overcome any other issues they face. The therapy focuses on whole-person recovery, treating substance abuse addiction as well as mental health impacts.
Along with individual therapy, our IOP also offers group therapy sessions. In these groups, patients can express their addiction struggles with people who share the same struggles. Clients learn from other people’s experiences, in fact it’s what makes treatment so successful. Also, by bonding and sharing, clients can walk the path to recovery together.
All clients can enjoy a variety of programs tracks tailored to their individual needs to achieve a successful recovery.
