Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

At Experience Recovery, treatment is designed to fit the needs of the client—and that includes not only medical needs, but lifestyle needs, as well. Some simply cannot commit to an extended residential treatment or require a step-down to a lower level of care. This is why we also provide outpatient options—therapeutic programs that offer the same high level of care without the need for an overnight stay.

Intensive Outpatient utilizes many of the same practices (group therapy, individual therapy) as Partial Hospitalization Program, however it is not as time-intensive. Clinical services are typically 5 days per week, 3 hours a day. The length that an individual will attend an IOP programs differ from person to person as they start to manage a successful recovery from addiction.

Outpatient Services from Experience Recovery

Though the scheduling is more flexible, our intensive outpatient treatment is otherwise similar to our residential model. It’s backed by evidence and driven by data; multi-step, and designed to deliver relief and freedom from addiction. Additionally, it’s tailored to meet the individual needs of the client.

At Experience Recovery’s intensive outpatient program one-on-one counseling with a focus on the client and their goals is emphasized. These sessions aim to help you establish and maintain recovery. You will receive many evidence-based services such as cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational enhanced therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and trauma informed care depending on your needs.

In IOP, you will work with an individual case manager and primary therapist and receive an individual person-centered treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Treatment is administered by physicians, psychologists, nurses, licensed therapists, and other healthcare and clinical professionals.

Intensive outpatient services are offered both during the day and during the evening, accommodating those who have obligations to work or to school. Individuals who come to Experience Recovery for day treatments will typically participate in treatment five days per week for 3 hours per day. Some will live at home, and others will take up temporary residence in a sober living or transitional living community.
