An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is one of several treatment programs available at Purpose Healing Center. Your addiction treatment team may refer you to an IOP if you’ve completed medical detox and can stay on track with recovery without the intensive 24-hour supervision of a residential inpatient program.
Here’s more about what happens in an IOP, and how to find out if you’re an ideal candidate for this treatment program.

Which Therapies Are Included in IOPs?
IOPs offer many of the same therapies and services as those offered by residential inpatient rehab programs. Group counseling and therapy are major components of most IOPs. Group therapy helps patients strengthen their communication skills, provides a norm that reinforces healthy behaviors, and establishes a strong support network for those who benefit from staying connected with peers in recovery.
Individual counseling is another major component of IOPs that helps patients address immediate problems that may have stemmed from addiction, such as divorce or strained family relationships. Psychoeducational programming involves group discussions among patients that facilitate positive changes in their emotions and behaviors, while pharmacotherapy and medication management may be used to treat alcohol addiction, opioid use disorder, and co-occurring mental health disorders.
Intensive Outpatient Programs at
Purpose Healing Center
You may be an ideal candidate for an IOP if you are highly motivated to stay sober and recently completed drug detox and/or a residential inpatient program.
An IOP may benefit you if you’re currently working, going to school, or raising children. If you’re in a standard outpatient program but have realized you need extra support and additional therapy, switching to an IOP may be the next best step to take in your recovery.
