6-Week Intensive Outpatient Treatment

Our 6-Week Intensive Outpatient Treatment Track is tailored to meet each client's individual needs. The program is designed for individuals either at the beginning of their recovery, as a supplement to sober living, or for those maintaining their sobriety.

The program has been designed with evidence-based educational components, skilled licensed therapists to process recovery, and with relapse prevention woven into every week. Clients will learn how co-occurring mental health disorders, drugs, and alcohol affect brain function, relationships, and everyday life. Clients will learn effective coping skills and how to manage "triggers" and relapse behaviors.

Family participation in our IOP program is highly encouraged. Family education and individual or family therapy sessions are held weekly as part of the IOP.

Our 6-Week IOP Track consists of 3 days per week, 3 hours per day, 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. and covers the following topics:
