IOP stands for “intensive outpatient program.” IOP programs treat substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health disorders, as well as trauma-based IOP which offer group therapy and life skills classes for those with substance abuse issues.

  • Intensive due to the schedule of treatment. You will meet with clinicians and support groups for at least 10 hours per week, for 12 weeks.
  • A structured program that follows a schedule and routine. The program helps you build skills.  IOP is similar to extracurricular activities for trauma-based, substance abuse disorders, and mental health.

What to Expect in IOP

Learning what to expect in IOP is one of the first steps in deciding if this level of care is right for you. A New Outlook Recovery Services IOP offers several different services to help people achieve abstinence and improve coping skills, including:

  • Group therapy
  • Individual therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Treatment for co-occurring disorders
  • Recovery Enhancement Strategies
  • 12-Step facilitation
  • Peer-to-peer support

On your first day of IOP, you’ll be presented with several treatment possibilities, and meet peers who are also striving toward recovery. These and many more treatment approaches work together to help people build the knowledge, skills, and support necessary to achieve abstinence and improve coping skills and start their path in recovery.

Treatment days are typically three hours long, with a break every hour. After treatment is over, you return home to practice the skills you’ve learned until heading back for the next treatment day. We offer a FREE aftercare program for a lifetime, once successfully completing the IOP program.

Why IOP Treatment at A New Outlook Recovery Services

Restore The Balance at A New Outlook Recovery Services focuses on using the latest in evidenced-based therapies. Therapies that help manage a variety of mental health and co-occurring addiction issues.

Our Mental Health IOP group helps clients struggling with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, bipolar disorder, adjustment, and life transition issues, as well as some mild to moderate personality disorders.

The Mental Health IOP program lasts 8-12 weeks depending on the severity of need and the program can be custom designed to fit your needs.

We use some of the following skill sets to help manage and cope with mental health issues:

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) treatment is a type of psychotherapy — or talk therapy — that utilizes a cognitive-behavioral approach. DBT emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of treatment.

Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT) is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind peoples’ difficulties, and in turn, change the way they feel.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) includes mindfulness skills as well as encourages clients to take action based upon their own values and in ways that will ultimately enrich their lives.  ACT is different than many therapy approaches because it does not focus much on symptom reduction.
