INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM

Substance Use and Mental Health Disorders

Intensive Outpatient Program

An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for substance use disorders is a structured treatment option that provides robust support and therapy for individuals battling addiction and/or mental health, with a level of intensity between just seeing a therapist or only taking medication and a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), where you stay in a program all day.

Here's the structure: In an IOP, you participate in the program for a few hours per session, five to three days a week. Our program has two IOP options that run Monday through Friday. The first is our Morning IOP that runs from 9:30am until 12:30pm with a break in between. The second is our Afternoon IOP which starts at 1:00pm and ends at 4:00pm. Many of our clients like to attend a mix of morning and afternoon sessions depending upon their personalized treatment plan.

IOP Half-Day Treatment Program

Think of it as a part-time commitment to your health. The IOP schedule allows you to continue your daily activities, like school or a part-time job. In the addiction and/or mental health IOP, you engage in various therapeutic activities including group counseling, individual psychotherapy, and educational sessions about substance use and coping strategies.

It's an approach that balances the need for intensive support with the flexibility to maintain your everyday life, offering a practical route to recovery while managing school or work commitments.

Why Is An IOP Better Than Other Treatment Options?

Application & Practice

The IOP program enables immediate application of learned skills in real-life contexts. You learn to practice coping strategies in daily situations, enhancing effectiveness and promoting lasting behavioral change.

Flexibility & Accessibility

IOPs are designed for those needing treatment alongside daily independence. This approach is crucial for individuals who can't take extended time off, making therapy more accessible and manageable.

Integration & Routine

IOPs blend treatment with daily life, ideal for those with work or family commitments. This setup allows participants to continue their regular activities and daily routines while receiving essential support.

Being part of an IOP means you're courageously working towards a healthier, more balanced life every day.

How You Can Pay For The Outpatient Program

Figuring out how to pay for a Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) can be a bit overwhelming, so we're here to help you through it. Our Admissions Coordinators work with you to explore how you can access the care you need in a way that fits your financial situation.

In-Network Insurance

Optum, Aetna, Magellan, Blue Shield, UHC

If our program is within your insurance's in-network providers, this typically means your insurance will cover a significant part of the costs, making it a more affordable option for you. 

Out-Of-Network Coverage

Most other insurance companies

Even if we're not in your insurance network, you may still receive partial reimbursement for the program costs. However, this usually involves higher out-of-pocket expenses than in-network coverage.

Non-Insurance Options

Private payments 

For those without insurance or seeking different payment methods, we offer alternatives like paying directly via credit card or setting up a payment plan to accommodate your financial situation.
