What is the Definition of Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?
An intensive outpatient program is designed to treat drug and alcohol-addicted patients who cannot commit to or don’t require an inpatient program to recover. While inpatient settings are often recommended for heavily addicted individuals and those with underlying conditions or other issues, detox and around-the-clock care isn’t necessary for everyone.
Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are designed to fill in the gaps between inpatient care and general outpatient care.
The key to well-rounded and effective addiction treatment is versatility and flexibility.
Who Should Enroll in an Intensive Outpatient Program?
When your addiction is less severe, a more manageable intensive outpatient program can help. If you have responsibilities that prevent you from leaving home, or you have a strong support system you don’t want to leave, an IOP is an ideal option. You receive addiction treatment while you to live at home.
Intensive outpatient programs offer additional support, education, resources, and guidance through recovery and sobriety without living at the rehab center.
You will experience many of the same treatment methods and classes, but you will return to your responsibilities and the comfort of your home when the meetings and treatment is over.
Milder Addictions Addressed at IOP
Milder addictions can be effectively addressed without the need for a location change or more highly structured programs. The challenge lies in determining the severity of your addiction on your own. Each patient is different, and what works best for another patient may not necessarily be the best thing that works for you.
That is why the experts at Resurgence Behavioral Health take the time to customize each patient’s care plan. If you’re unsure of what your next move should be or which treatment plan you should choose, you can call our rehab center at any time for guidance and advice.
We will perform a confidential informational admissions meeting, a complimentary insurance verification, provide answers to your questions, and guide you through the necessary next steps.
Before, during, and after your treatment with us, our primary goal is to help you recover, get healthy, and stay sober.

If you are new to the process, we’ll provide you with the information that you need, starting right at intake.
Our wonderful, comfortable, and updated outpatient campus offers a wide range of services you may benefit from, all in a natural and serene location.
In addition to being a place where you can connect with individuals in similar situations, benefit from a temporary change in scenery, find perspective, and reconnect, intensive outpatient program services often include:
- Various therapy sessions
- Counseling services
- Classes and seminars
- 12 step and other related programs
- Aftercare planning and services
These are a few of the most widely used programs, however, yours may be different.
Intensive Outpatient Program Therapy
Therapy is a big part of any addiction treatment and you will have access to a variety of different therapies.
One-on-one sessions give you the time to focus on the details of your addiction like why it occurred in the first place, what your triggers are, what troubling behaviors or situations you should avoid moving forward, and how to permanently overcome these barriers.
Additionally, family therapy gives you the chance to work through the challenges in your most important relationships in a comfortable, controlled, and forward-focused setting.
Group sessions and support groups are great places to share stories, listen to what others in similar situations have to say, and work through your problems in a group that understands them.
Most patients build support groups that stay with them for a long time after their intensive outpatient program is complete.
Finally, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a highly advanced and effective treatment option that takes a hands-on and practical approach to problem-solving by altering patterns of thinking and behavior that were damaging in the past.
Intensive Outpatient Program for Alcoholism
Alcohol addiction is a very common reason to seek the care given in intensive outpatient programs. More addictions are due to alcohol than all other drug diagnoses put together. For this and several other reasons, alcohol addiction can be very dangerous.
Additionally, alcohol is widely normalized in this country, so many people won’t realize or acknowledge they have an addiction until they recognize some of the detrimental side effects to their physical or mental health. One of the largest drivers for alcoholism is a genetic predisposition, making it increasingly difficult to avoid.
Intensive outpatient programs provide insight into alcoholism, including why it occurs and how to move past it. They also provide a safe place to escape if you face frequent triggers or temptations in your normal environments or at home.
Intensive Outpatient Program for Drugs
Alcohol is often a common reason to seek intensive outpatient program care, but it is not the only one. These programs have helped many in recovery improve their physical and mental health and achieve long-term sobriety. While there are many possible drug addictions that may require treatment, some are more common than others.
Heroin, for example, has caused a troubling increase in emergency care visits, with numbers more than tripling from 2006 to 2017.
Additionally, many individuals need intensive programs to treat addictions to cocaine, benzodiazepines, hallucinogenic drugs, amphetamine, prescription opioids, and synthetics like fentanyl. From illicit drugs to improperly used prescriptions, there are many reasons to seek treatment. Just because you do not see your addiction listed here does not mean that we can’t help overcome it.
If you have any questions about your particular addiction, or what intensive outpatient care can do for you, please do not hesitate to call us.
Does Insurance Cover Intensive Outpatient Treatment?
Thankfully, many health insurance plans cover all or part of addiction treatment programs, and intensive outpatient treatments are often included.
If you provide our office with your insurance provider’s information, we can perform a free, fast, and easy insurance verification, so you have one less thing to worry about. If you do not have insurance or your coverage falls short, we work with you to create an alternative payment plan.
Intensive outpatient care is generally less expensive than inpatient care, which includes medically-assisted detoxes and constant care, so that is another benefit to outpatient program options.
Benefits of an Intensive Outpatient Program
The following benefits can be achieved in an intensive outpatient program:
- The flexibility to maintain a normal daily routine while obtaining addiction care
- The ability to stay at home, attend to responsibilities, and receive support
- The development of the skills, tools, and resources you need to find long-term sobriety
- The creation of positive support systems and groups with fellow recovering addicts
- An improvement in important relationships that were affected by the addiction
- Continuous support during and after the program
- The motivation and courage you need to succeed
These benefits, and many more, are achieved in as little as nine hours each week with the right effort and dedication. These programs are excellent tools in treating drug addictions and alcohol addictions, as well as underlying mental health treatment.
Intensive Outpatient Program Structure
Intensive outpatient programs are more detailed and involved than traditional outpatient care, so you can expect to spend between nine and 20 hours in treatment every week.
A fair amount of the treatment will be done in a group setting, which helps patients adapt, evaluate, and rebuild with others who understand them.
Recovery is better addressed together than alone.
