intensive outpatient program

Outpatient treatment is a great option for clients who have completed detox or residential services, or for clients who are unable to attend residential services due to work, school, or other extenuating circumstances. Clients will go through the assessment process prior to admission to give treatment providers the information needed to design a personalized treatment plan. Medical, physical, and mental health is evaluated, and co-occurring disorders can be treated. Treatment providers work closely with the individual and their loved ones to plan and implement a viable care plan.


With outpatient treatment, classes, sessions, meetings, and workshops are scheduled throughout the day, and individuals are asked to adhere to the structure of the program. Intensive outpatient programs generally facilitate 6-30 hours a week of programming for addiction treatment and mental health services. The exact number of hours and types of sessions will vary from person to person. On average, individuals will likely attend sessions in 3-hour to 5-hour blocks 4-5 days per week. Sessions may be day sessions or night sessions, depending on what works best for the person’s schedule and what the facility can provide. The National Institute on Drug Abuse(NIDA) recommends that addiction treatment programs should last at least 90 days and stresses that remaining in treatment for a suitable amount of time greatly enhances success in long-term recovery.

An outpatient program may be more cost-effective than a residential one, offering families a more budget-friendly option for care.
