Intensive Outpatient Treatment

Ongoing, custom outpatient care.

An intensive outpatient program, or IOP, is an approach to treatment that both accommodates and supports the patient’s personal life. We offer a structured therapeutic program that meets 3 times a week for a minimum of 9 hours, in addition to a weekly one-on-one individual session. Our IOP may be a good treatment option for individuals in a variety of situations, including those needing support more than once a week counseling.

Intensive outpatient treatment program offering convenience.

Preparation for life in the community is an important goal of intensive outpatient treatment. Unlike an inpatient program, an intensive outpatient program offers participants the ability to receive treatment while still living at home and engaging in their personal lives. Men and women can attend an IOP without disrupting their work, routine or relationships.
