Intensive Outpatient Treatment (also known as IOP for "Intensive Outpatient Program") 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 medically-supervised detox. IOP can also enable people in recovery to continue their recovery therapies following successful detox, on a part-time yet intensive schedule, designed to accommodate work and family life.
Long-term sobriety requires ongoing, intensive treatment and a strong support network. People are normally provided continued care and support through convenient yet powerful intensive outpatient programs. In IOPs, clients develop the skills and relationships needed to sustain recovery from alcohol and other drug use while keeping up with job, school and family commitments.
Intensive outpatient drug rehab programs provide clients guidance from clinicians and addiction specialists and help them get support from others on their own recovery journey. Clients learn a range of valuable recovery skills in intensive outpatient treatment. These include:
- Coping with alcohol and drug cravings
- Accepting and acting on feedback
- Practicing effective communication
- Finding healthy ways to reduce stress
- Identifying triggers and learning healthy ways to deal with them
- Improving decision-making abilities
- Creating healthy relationships
Intensive outpatient addiction treatment programs are open to people who need structure and support in their recovery process. Core components of intensive outpatient treatment generally include:
- Master’s level clinicians and addiction specialists
- Individualized education and recovery resources
- Small group sizes
- Individual counseling support
- Collaboration with sober living residences and/or family
- Drug screenings
