Simple Recovery Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) is an outpatient program that allows individuals to work, attend school and manage other daily responsibilities while receiving treatment. It is designed for people who have a desire to quit using drugs and / or alcohol but are unable to stop on their own, or for those exiting an inpatient/residential program. Simple Recovery IOP treatment is also a good solution for clients exiting an inpatient program, but still lacking skills and confidence to ensure recovery success.

Education regarding the disease and the cognitive, emotional, physical, nutritional, interpersonal (social), and spiritual aspects of chemical dependency is a key focus. Clients are expected to actively participate in the various components of the program, including: community meeting, educational activities, group therapy, individual counseling sessions, physical assessments, stress identification and management activities, family program and self-help meetings.

Features of Intensive Outpatient Treatment

Clients enrolled in IOP treatment can attend morning or evening sessions, depending on the demands of their personal lives. While engaged in treatment, clients live at home (or a sober living environment) and pursue the normal activities of daily living.

Treatment sessions feature intensive education in:

  • Root causes of substance abuse & addiction
  • Emotional factors
  • Physical factors
  • Cognitive behaviors
  • Social skills
  • Relapse prevention
  • Coping strategies
  • Healthy nutrition
  • Spiritual fulfillment

Structured Care for Lasting Sobriety

In addition to education, IOP treatment includes psychological and medical therapy with licensed professionals on an as-needed basis. Assessment of your needs begins with an individual bio-psychosocial interview conducted by a credentialed professional counselor. Recommended outpatient therapies range from family counseling and self-help programs to stress management and group therapy. Clients must attend three to five meetings weekly with 12-Step groups or other self-help programs. All of these activities have one goal: the transformation of men and women into strong, capable people with the tools to achieve recovery and live satisfying sober lives.
