Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP)

Inroads to Recovery’s Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program (IOP) is identified as a separate outpatient program that provides culturally and linguistically appropriate services.

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provides high quality, evidence based treatment for adults experiencing problematic substance use, bipolar disorder (including mania; and for types I and II), unipolar depression, self-harm, trauma, and co-occurring mental health conditions and chemical dependency that does not rely on detoxification. The program is appropriate for all individuals who are medically stable and have completed any necessary detoxification, inpatient psychiatric care, or residential treatment programs.

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) program consists of a scheduled series of sessions appropriate to the person-centered plans of the persons served and address issues described under OP level of care, but at a higher level of intensity and time spent in treatment.

At Inroads to Recovery, our IOP Program is designed to make treatment more effective by resolving trauma, helping individuals learn to lead a full and balanced recovery-supportive lifestyle, focusing on home safety.

These may include services provided during evenings and/or interventions delivered by a variety of service providers.  Modalities include individual, group, and education on wellness, recovery, and resiliency.  IOP may function as a step-down program from inpatient, partial hospitalization, detoxification / withdrawal support, or residential services.  It is also used to prevent or minimize the need for inpatient or residential level of treatment.  These services help the patients to safely stay sober and maintain positive mental health through at least nine (9) hours or more of services per week for 6 weeks.

We provide an Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program (IOP), with value to the community for patients exhibiting substance use, including co-occurring (psychiatric and substance use) disorders as applicable, when there is a supportive and stable living environment but a higher level of care is needed. 

Intensive Outpatient Programming at Inroads to Recovery includes individual, family and other treatment options that are tailored to patients.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy focusses on developing the skills necessary to maintain sobriety and prevent a relapse. Psychoeducation helps individuals better understand the complex correlation between their mental health and substance misuse.

Family Therapy

Family therapy facilitates honest communication between family members and the patient and provides education about the nature of the patient’s mental health conditions and substance use disorder.

Group Therapy

In the group therapy sessions, patients get the opportunity to gather information from peers through observation and feedback and use the information to practice new interpersonal skills or make desired changes in their own lives.
