Intensive Outpatient Program for individual clients

Bespoke and focused care

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) was created for adult individual clients looking for truly bespoke and private services. Clients may include professionals for whom substance use or process addiction is a threat to their livelihood, high level executives, or those who require complete confidentiality.

This program offers flexibility for those who have changing schedules or unconventional employment obligations. We agree upon a schedule to fit your needs at the start of the program, allowing you to remain at home throughout treatment and continue to meet family, school, or employment responsibilities.

The individual IOP service also includes loved ones in treatment, identifying one session per week that family members are invited to attend. Your dedicated systemic therapist supports you and your important others to understand the ways that addiction has shaped your relationship, damaged connection, and limited communication.

Getting started

Design a personalized program

Address your unique needs

The Intensive Outpatient experience begins with a thorough biopsychosocial assessment that informs our clinical recommendations for treatment.

This may include a recommendation for a higher level of care such as medical detoxification, as some substances require medical support to safely discontinue use.

Whatever level of care we recommend, we can take you through our suite of services to create a tailor-made plan that addresses your unique emotional, physical, relational, and spiritual needs.

Clients can access our comprehensive individual IOP as a stand-alone treatment plan, or add other services such as:

  • Couple and family therapy
  • Sex therapy
  • Trauma-informed therapy
  • Meditation instruction
  • Mindfulness training
  • Stress reduction
  • Anger management
  • Yoga and
  • Nutrition.


Program Schedule

What can I expect?

The IOP Group takes place over 12 weeks, and meets for two-hour sessions, three times per week. Individual IOP clients are assigned a therapist who is skilled and experienced in working with your particular needs.

The program length and intensity are designed to offer structure and support through the first three months of recovery, a time during which the neurological and emotional symptoms of post-acute withdrawal leave clients the most vulnerable to relapse.

The individual IOP service is tailor-made to meet your unique needs. It addresses early recovery issues such stabilization, relapse prevention, and effective coping skills, as they pertain to you.

As you progress through the program, therapy focuses on the deeper issues that challenge your recovery journey. We also include a focus on meaningful connection to self and others, personal growth, and life purpose.
