Intensive Outpatient Program


As individuals progress through their addiction treatment, receiving an added layer of support in an evidenced-based and supportive environment will make it possible to enjoy their new, sober lifestyle.

Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) meet three days a week for three hours a day and provide a part-time schedule that allows individuals to continue on-going therapy while working and living at home or near the facility.

Core components of our IOP many behavioral therapies, including:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): is a psychological therapy that encourages individuals to change maladaptive thoughts to change their behaviors. Individuals learn about coping skills, which helps them acknowledge and change those maladaptive behavior patterns.
  • Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MBCBT) is a modified form of CBT that incorporates mindfulness practices like meditation and breathing to encourage individuals to break away from the negative thought patterns that can cause them to relapse.
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI): is a form of counseling that helps individuals think and talk through any insecurities they may be feeling.
  • Group Therapy: A trained counselor will guide interactions in a group setting that will encourage reflection, accountability, empathy and developing positive communication skills. Research overwhelmingly shows that group counseling is the most effective method to receive care.



During treatment, we will also employ experiential and adventure therapies, encourage individuals to attend peer-run recovery support groups.

Addiction treatment can bring up a lot of questions. We understand. Our addiction professionals receive many commonly asked questions, such as:

What should I expect when going to an intensive outpatient program?

At the beginning of the IOP, an individual will meet with one of our addiction professionals to discuss a treatment plan and the individual’s recovery goals. Our staff member will ask about drug use, medical history, mental health history, legal issues, family problems, and previous treatment experiences. It is essential that individuals answer these questions honestly as it is our goal to provide treatment that is centered on their personal goals and history. After this meeting, you will begin attending group sessions.

Is an intensive outpatient program right for me?

Professionals will need to evaluate each individual case by case. However, IOP is ideal for those who have been through residential treatment or detox and want to continue their treatment or those who cannot commit to long-term residential treatment and have the motivation and transportation to attend the treatment.

Am I recovered if I go through an intensive outpatient program?

Recovery is a lifelong journey that does not end after treatment. At Providence Recovery, it is our goal to help individuals build life skills and fellowship that will provide support long after they have completed our program.
