IOP - Intensive Outpatient Program

IOP is one of several kinds of outpatient treatment available for recovering addicts. IOP provides patients with medical and psychological help but with minimal time commitment that allows patients to return to their normal lives such as working or caring for children.


In this program, patients only need to go to rehab or a hospital of their choice for treatment sessions, such as counseling, therapy, relapse prevention skills, and any additional services provided that the patient might be recommended to or choose to be a part of.

Intensive outpatient requires only a few, short visits a week, usually nine hours a week which are divided into four sessions. The number of sessions and hours are adaptable, as they are decided based on the diagnosis of the patient and will change as the patient improves and progresses. However, because the treatment is not continuous like it is in the inpatient program, IOP tends to take longer than inpatient treatment to be completed. Nonetheless, this in no way alters the effectiveness of the program, and there have been multiple studies proving that they are equally successful when correctly prescribed and followed.

How Does IOP Treatment Work?

Apart from individual therapy and counseling, IOP treatment is also comprised of other methods to ensure full recovery from addiction. Group activities such as group sessions can be of great help as a former addict gets support from people going through the same changes as them. This would help prevent feelings of loneliness and isolation and can also help a patient better understand themselves and their process through other people’s advice, experiences, and insights.

IOP treatment is recommended for people that have gone through the acute stage of withdrawal and do not require round-the-clock monitoring. It is also recommended for those that do not meet the diagnostic criteria for inpatient treatment and only suffer from moderate to mild addiction.

Who is IOP Best For?

This program is the preferred choice among those who want to start getting back to their usual routine since patients can stay in their own homes and would have more free hours in their day. However, it is important to be realistic about your medical and psychological needs and just how much freedom you can handle. While you may be eager to be “done” with rehab, if you do not feel confident that you have a handle on your addiction, it would be best to enroll in a higher level of care such as PHP.

IOP is not recommended for those who:

  • Would be returning to an environment that would trigger cravings
  • Would be exposed to situations or people that might encourage substance abuse
  • Have difficulty arranging transportation to go back to the facilities for sessions

Rehabilitation begins with daily sessions that last 2.5 to 3 hours each. These sessions include group therapy and education. We gradually taper the number of outpatient treatment sessions from four to three times a week as patients stabilize. Patients also participate in individual treatment.
