iop recovery program

After you or your loved one has completed the detox process, figuring out the next steps can be stressful. Once a client has completed the detox process at our medically supervised treatment facility, we work with clients and their loved ones to make sure they have a treatment plan, and they feel good about it.

Pathways is proud to offer an intensive outpatient treatment program for those in the community seeking outpatient treatment for their addiction, as well as residential treatment clients wishing to build skills, receive support and continue creating a strong recovery foundation. Dual diagnosis clients welcome. 

Outpatient Treatment Schedule

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)  consists of three treatment groups per week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10am-1pm as well as a weekly individual session to discuss treatment plan progress and work on other daily life issues that pertain to a healthy recovery. Clients may bring a loved one to one individual session prior to completion of treatment. Continuing individual sessions are available for those who would like additional support. We use various modalities to work on and teach tools including: relapse prevention, codependency, healthy boundaries, trauma, life skills, spirituality and effective communication, all as they pertain to addiction. Our outpatient director will help you build a sober foundation that you will continue to build on after completion of treatment. Men and women over the age of 18 are welcome.

What is Intensive Outpatient Drug Rehab?

Intensive Outpatient Drug Rehab, sometimes referred to as Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), is a program option that clients can enter after the detox process and inpatient living. IOP is a way for a client to continue treatment with structured therapy. Outpatient programs focus on teaching clients a variety of techniques and skills to retain sobriety in the future.

outpatient care centerAt Pathways Recovery, we strive to provide each client with plenty of individual support, time, and attention. To better accommodate each client’s needs, our IOP program group is a small, intimate size. At one time, there may be only eight or fewer clients in a group. Through this smaller group, we can attend more personally to each client and ensure that their educational and treatment needs are met. This smaller environment also provides a safe and secure environment for our clients, which is always one of our top priorities as a treatment clinic.

Outpatient Rehabilitation Schedule

The IOP group schedule consists of three group therapy sessions per week on Mondays, Wednesday, and Friday from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm. Each client will also have one individual therapy session per week. IOP lasts for a minimum of six weeks.

When you or a loved one enters our program, you can be confident that our counselors will create individualized plans for each individual. We recognize that not everyone’s recovery journey and time in IOP looks the same. We ensure that we are meeting a client’s needs as best as we can through our individualized treatment plans.

Outpatient Rehab Resources

Alongside group and individual counseling sessions, we also offer various educational resources during our IOP meetings. These resources and activities include:

  • One-on-one counseling

Who Can Benefit from Outpatient Rehab?

Intensive outpatient programs can be highly beneficial for individuals who have gone through the initial stages of detoxification and inpatient rehabilitation in a residential facility. IOP offers a structured continuation of treatment. Both inpatient and outpatient programming have been recognized in the treatment community as important treatment and education stages to maintain sobriety in the future.

This kind of programming aims to look more closely at internal struggles and challenges in the client, especially mental struggles that could affect sobriety. Addressing internal mental processes and building up communication and self-management skills gives a client more tools to build a healthy future.

How are Outpatient Programs Different From Inpatient Rehab?

Suppose you or a loved one is looking to continue treatment. In that case, outpatient is considered a more affordable alternative to inpatient addiction treatment and can also be used to continue treatment after inpatient treatment.

Outpatient treatment offers clients greater flexibility when scheduling and balancing treatment with personal and professional responsibilities. Sessions can be planned around a variety of commitments. For some clients, spending more time with family or loved ones is also an appealing benefit of outpatient programming.
