Intensive Outpatient

For those fighting addiction, finding the right treatment option can make all the difference. Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) offer a unique approach by providing a structured but flexible environment that allows participants to receive high-quality care without the need for 24-hour supervision. With a focus on therapy and group support, IOPs allow individuals to delve deep into their addiction, identify triggers and develop coping mechanisms to stay sober.

Intensive Outpatient


Addiction is a struggle unique to each person. Although two people may misuse the same substance, the symptoms and challenges they experience while using and when trying to get clean are often entirely different. For this reason, it is important to choose a treatment level of care that meets your treatment needs. There are several types of treatment available in rehab facilities across the nation. In most cases, the severity and duration of your addiction help to determine the level of care most beneficial to your treatment goals.

An intensive outpatient treatment program or IOP is frequently used as a “next step” or step down from a higher level of care, such as a partial hospitalization program (PHP) or residential (inpatient) treatment program. An intensive outpatient program in Ohio provides clients with more freedom than residential or partial hospitalization programs. The increased level of treatment flexibility allows you to resume or continue activities and obligations of your day-to-day life while still receiving potentially life-saving addiction treatment.

For some, it may be necessary to complete a residential treatment program before stepping down to an intensive outpatient program. In other cases, an IOP may be an appropriate starting point in your journey to sobriety. Members of the admissions team and your treatment team will work with you or your loved one to determine the best level of care for your needs before admission to a specific treatment program.

What to Expect at a Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program

Addictions (or substance use disorders) are classified as mild, moderate, or severe according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5). Intensive outpatient programs are generally recommended for those who have a mild (sometimes moderate) addiction. In addition, IOPs are often effective for those with minimal mental health concerns and a strong, safe, and supportive support system as part of their home environment.

Intensive outpatient programs use many of the same evidence-based traditional and alternative treatment models used in the inpatient residential addiction treatment setting. The most common therapy models used during therapeutic sessions include cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT and other similar therapeutic models. Some programs also incorporate 12-step programs into their treatment models.

Although there are other differences between treatment levels of care, what sets intensive outpatient treatment apart from residential or traditional outpatient programs is that inpatient programs require you to live on-site at the treatment facility while you are participating in detox and working towards sobriety. Residential treatment programs often provide various treatment options, services, and amenities that intensive outpatient programs do not. Because residential facilities require patients to live at the facility during their 30, 60, or 90-day program, residential programs provide housing, meals, medical care, nutritional services, and recreational opportunities for you to take advantage of during your treatment. These programs are often considered a better fit for those who struggle with a severe addiction or have previously completed an addiction treatment program and experienced a relapse.

Intensive outpatient programs allow you to live at home while receiving treatment. Outpatient and intensive outpatient programs are generally less expensive than inpatient programs and offer significantly more flexibility in terms of treatment schedules. The most significant challenge people often experience when participating in an intensive outpatient program is remaining at home throughout treatment. For some, this ongoing exposure to the triggers and situations that initially led to addictive behaviors can increase the chances of relapse.

Our Intensive Outpatient Rehab Program in the Midwest

The first step in our intensive outpatient rehab program in the Midwest is a comprehensive evaluation. Members of your treatment team will work with you to get a better understanding of your medical, mental health, and substance abuse history. This evaluation is a crucial part of your treatment plan as it helps guide your treatment team in designing an individualized treatment plan focused on your specific needs and goals. Your treatment plan will also consider other essential needs such as medication management, co-occurring mental health conditions, and co-occurring medical conditions. The evaluation may also indicate that a residential program may be a better starting point for your sobriety journey based on your current medical, mental health, and addiction treatment needs.

Your comprehensive evaluation will guide the creation of your treatment plan by helping determine how many days per week you will participate in treatment and how long your treatment program will last. Different from the inpatient residential environment, intensive outpatient programs generally offer flexible scheduling to accommodate a wide range of treatment needs and individual schedules. If your treatment needs or the speed of your recovery change during treatment, your treatment team can modify your plan to accommodate the change allowing you to continue your journey of healing.

During treatment at our intensive rehab program in the Midwest, your treatment team will use a variety of evidence-based and alternative treatment models to support and guide you through recovery. Some of the most common therapy types include cognitive-behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy. We also focus on helping you achieve the skills and strengths you need to develop independently in the community, sustain mental health and achieve lasting sobriety after treatment. This is accomplished through relapse prevention education, addiction education, skill-building and employment education, and spirituality and self-awareness practices. Sessions at our intensive outpatient drug and alcohol rehab in the Midwest are a combination of settings, including individual counseling, group therapy, family therapy, and 12-step groups.

Many intensive outpatient programs require drug and alcohol testing while you attend the program. The frequency and interval of the testing vary across programs. However, it is usually random. Testing is a normal part of many outpatient treatment programs due to the freedom associated with outpatient treatment. Testing also helps ensure program participants follow program guidelines and rules while protecting other program members from those who continue to use or relapse during the treatment program. A positive test may be a sign that you need to consider a higher level of treatment, such as a residential program, before stepping down to an intensive outpatient program.

Our substance abuse intensive outpatient program offers group therapy six days per week and schedules individual therapy sessions around your schedule to accommodate the needs of those who are employed or have other responsibilities. Throughout the week, you will participate in 15-25 hours of group therapy in addition to individual therapy sessions. Once your treatment program is complete, we will ensure you have a comprehensive aftercare plan in place. Aftercare is a vital part of ongoing sobriety and recovery. Maintaining a connection with your therapy provider and the sober community through continuous therapy and peer support groups helps to maintain motivation in sobriety. It also provides an opportunity to learn and practice essential relapse prevention skills.
