Our Intensive Outpatient Therapy, also known as IOP, is a treatment program that is a part-time yet intensive recovery program designed to accommodate work and family. Through a wide variety of therapies and expert addiction specialists, psychiatrists, physicians, and licensed counselors, we provide clients with the tools they need to live a sober life.

What is an Intensive Outpatient Program?

Intensive Outpatient Treatment is a primary treatment program recommended in some circumstances by a clinical and medical assessment. IOP may be recommended for those who do not need a medically-supervised detox. In IOP, clients are able to continue their recovery therapies following a successful detox and live outside of the Recovery Institute of Ohio. They attend group therapy sessions three times per week, meet individually with their therapist on a weekly basis, and are encouraged to continue involvement with a Twelve Step program.

What are the Benefits of an Intensive Outpatient Therapy Program?

An intensive outpatient therapy program helps individuals continue their path to recovery typically after completing their residential treatment. However, a licensed addiction specialist will determine the best possible treatment program for each client based on their substance abuse history and specific needs. The benefits of IOP include:

  • Lower Costs: IOP is typically a lower cost than an inpatient treatment program, making it more affordable for individuals.
  • Ability to Live at Home: Individuals can live at home while receiving treatment.
  • Maintain Work and Family Life: IOP is an ideal fit for those who have work responsibilities that they cannot leave or are a caretaker. IOP enables individuals to maintain their jobs and caretaking responsibilities while still receiving treatment for their substance abuse.
  • Identify Triggers: Individuals learn how to identify triggers of their substance abuse so that they can manage and avoid these triggers in the future.
  • Relapse Prevention: Individuals learn valuable tools for preventing potential relapse and identify warning signs.
  • Addresses Long-Lasting Recovery: The goal of IOP is to provide individuals with the customized care they need through a variety of therapies in order for them to live a sober, happy life.

At the Recovery Institute of Ohio, we are a treatment program for those who seek recovery from substance abuse disorders and/or mental health problems. Through our Partial Hospitalization Program, we strive to provide you with a safe, secure, supportive environment, and a wide variety of professional services, activities, and experiences that will empower you in your journey towards success.

What is the IOP Level of Care?

IOP care is one level above a standard outpatient program and typically requires individuals to attend nine hours of treatment sessions on a weekly basis. This treatment program is considered a good option for those looking for an alternative to residential (inpatient) treatment.

Are Intensive Outpatient Programs Effective?

Yes, Intensive Outpatient Programs are known to be effective for individuals struggling with drug or alcohol abuse. However, individuals with co-occurring disorders or severe addictions might need to start with an inpatient treatment program. Our addiction specialists can help determine which treatment program is the most ideal fit for you or your loved one.

IOP is also known to be effective for individuals looking to transition from their residential treatment program – This enables them to receive the same level of individual and group therapy sessions, while slowly transitioning back to their normal life, since with IOP clients can attend several hours of therapy a week.

How Long is an Intensive Outpatient Program?

Intensive Outpatient Programs are three days per week, for approximately three hours each. Many individuals participate in IOP for several months, but the duration is different for each person depending on their needs, history, and recovery process.
