Intensive Outpatient Program

An intensive outpatient program (or IOP) at America’s Rehab Campuses, gives you ongoing support as you continue transitioning to a drug-free lifestyle.

Our programs are designed to work around your busy schedule as you resume your work, school, and family lives. Many patients transition to an IOP after completing an inpatient, residential, or partial hospitalization program.

Day or Night Time IOP Programs Available

What Is an Intensive Outpatient Program?

An IOP is a 12-week program that meets three hours per day on three days every week. This program is more flexible than most other drug rehab programs and gives you more freedom as it allows you to live at home while visiting the facility regularly to receive therapy. An IOP will help you with continuing to develop and strengthen your coping skills so you remain at a low risk for relapse.

IOPs are customized for each individual patient based on factors such as the lifespan of the addiction, the severity of the addiction, and the diagnosis of a co-occurring disorder such as mental illness or another addiction. Patients in IOPs can resume and re-establish normal everyday activities while continuing to live sober lifestyles.

Which Therapies and Services Are Offered With an IOP?

IOPs offer many of the same therapies and services as inpatient, residential, and partial hospitalization programs. Therapies you may receive in an IOP include:

  • Group therapy
  • Modified 12-step support groups
  • Substance abuse education
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Rational emotive behavioral therapy
  • Dual diagnosis therapy
  • Relapse prevention training
  • Recreational therapy

These therapies help you improve harmful behaviors related to your addiction and offer continued support as you transition back into society. Family therapy helps you mend strained relationships with loved ones affected by your addiction, which is especially helpful for those who recently returned home after completing inpatient or residential treatment.

Ongoing medication management may be available for those using medications like naltrexone, methadone, buprenorphine, and Suboxone that reduce opioid cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Medications such as these are often used in drug detox, but they may be used in an IOP to help you stay abstinent long-term. Alcohol rehab patients who use medications like acamprosate and disulfiram to stay sober can also benefit from medication management in an IOP.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate for an IOP?

Good candidates for IOPs are those who have already completed inpatient, residential, PHP, or drug and alcohol detox, and who are ready to transition to a lower level of care. Patients who have developed strong coping skills and who are motivated and willing to continue with recovery are also good candidates for IOPs. Since an IOP gives you more freedom, this program is most effective for those who have strong support systems at home or in their sober living communities.

America’s Rehab Campuses offer IOPs to help patients transition from a higher level of care to a program that gives them more flexibility as they navigate sober living. If you or a loved one is recovering from addiction and needs continued care, you may benefit from our IOP.
