What Is An Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Program?
An intensive outpatient treatment program or IOP is a method of treatment that can address concerns such as:
- Eating disorders
- Other dependencies
This program does not require 24-hour supervision. During your participation, you continue to live your day-to-day life. Clients in IOP live at home and are still able to get the help they need to overcome addiction. Treatments will address co-occurring disorders such as depression and anxiety.
Our program also works as a follow-up to a completed inpatient program. IOP can help you smoothly transition back into your family and community. These programs facilitate relapse management by providing additional coping strategies and support.
Why Consider Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?
While you are in recovery, you will need a reliable support system to encourage you to keep up the hard work. Intensive outpatient treatment programs support clients who want to overcome an addiction when not in residential treatment. With NewVista’s IOP option, you can fulfill your daily obligations while also getting the support you need.
What To Expect During An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
In an intensive outpatient treatment program, you receive 10 to 12 hours of our group therapy program and our individual therapy program weekly. At NewVista, you come to our facility to attend your therapy sessions and receive feedback from counselors and therapists. We also provide you with higher levels of care than a typical outpatient program. As such, you spend more time in treatment every week. However, the extra time gives you the necessary coping skills to resist cravings and the urge to relapse.
At NewVista, we also encourage clients to participate in a 12-step program, such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.
Group therapy lies at the heart of our successful intensive outpatient treatment program. For some clients, an IOP is as effective as one-on-one therapy in treating substance abuse disorder. Only you can decide what will work best for you.
Our programs include:
- Mindfulness-based relapse prevention
- Healthy relationship/team building group
- Addiction education
- Process therapy groups
- Family dynamics
- Dealing with stress
- Balancing a program with work
- Regulating emotions
- Dating/relationships in sobriety
- Life skills/time management

Benefits of Intensive Outpatient Treatment
Intensive outpatient rehabilitation is a level of rehabilitation for clients with less severe addictions, as well as clients who are transitioning out of inpatient care. This level of care is typically given to the following individuals:
- Clients whose addiction isn’t as severe: For clients in the early stages of their addiction, or if their addiction isn’t as severe, can benefit from outpatient rehab which in most cases provides the necessary support to ensure a successful recovery.
- Clients who use IOP as continuing care: Intensive outpatient treatment is normally recommended once a client has transitioned from inpatient care. This level of care helps a client maintain their sobriety, and ensure its longevity, particularly against relapse.
- Clients who want their family and friends nearby for support: Depending upon the severity of their addiction as an inpatient, a client may not have had an opportunity to see their family and friends. As an outpatient, however, clients can now see those closest to them for help and support in their sobriety.
- Clients who need to get back to work: In some cases, a client who has been assessed for inpatient treatment can’t commit to the full time. Intensive outpatient therapy is a good way to quickly transition back into work, school, and other daily activities.
