Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP)

An alternative to residential treatment, the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) helps individuals experiencing problems caused by alcohol or drugs on an outpatient basis. While treatment is grounded in the same proven methods as our residential program, the evening therapy sessions in the 15 week program do not interfere with employment or family needs. 

Consistent with the residential program, the IOP implements its own evidence-based curriculum, the Matrix Model, which brings explicit structure to outpatient settings combining counselor support, group, and individual participation, spiritual group involvement, relapse prevention and family involvement. 

Individuals participating in the Intensive Outpatient Program are typically in need of more than individual outpatient therapy and do not require residential treatment or detoxification. IOP allows the individual to continue to fulfill his/her obligations to family, job and community while obtaining treatment. 

Individuals will also be advised that family sessions are encouraged as part of the IOP curriculum and may serve to meet compliance with or toward treatment objectives.  Family Day Programs will be held monthly within the CDC in order to foster discussion on topics such as Al-Anon, Nar-Anon, the disease of addiction, and Stages of Family Recovery. 

IOP fees are based on a sliding fee scale.
