intensive outpatient

Individuals struggling with addiction or a co-occurring disorder are eligible for our intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment program.

Our off-site intensive outpatient program is a step down from our partial hospitalization program (PHP). Through our IOP program, individuals do not live on campus but are required to attend mandatory programming just a short drive away in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. Among other aspects, our IOP treatment includes weekday programming from 8:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. After morning sessions, patients spend the rest of their day attending various meetings, receiving job-placement assistance such as resumes and mock interviews, working in town, and sober networking. Weekly medication-assisted treatment (MAT) appointments, individual therapy, and family sessions are included in IOP, as well as group sessions and case management.

Who Is Eligible For IOP Services?

Individuals with addiction or a co-occurring disorder who have completed an inpatient treatment program or partial hospitalization care are eligible for IOP. We can take direct patients but inpatient treatment beforehand is preferred. Individuals who work, attend school, are court-ordered, or live at home can participate in IOP programs. Assessments are included upon admission.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does IOP mean?

IOP stands for “intensive outpatient.” Once a person completes an on-campus, inpatient substance use disorder treatment program, they will then enroll in an intensive outpatient program. These programs consist of less supervision but are still rigorously structured with patients attending required programming each day.

What is an IOP in addiction treatment?

These are typically programs that are a step up from regular outpatient programs and require mandatory attendance of classes and programming. More often than not, there is also a group therapy component to IOP treatments. Intensive outpatient programs are recommended for people who do not require medically-supervised drug detox.

What does IOP consist of?

Some common programming in intensive outpatient treatments includes one-on-one therapy with a licensed counselor, group therapy and activities, outdoor physical activities, and weekly medication-assisted treatment appointments with an on-site nurse practitioner.

What do PHP and IOP mean?

Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) and intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are similar as they are both outpatient treatments. Partial hospitalization is typically the more intense version of treatment with longer and more intensive programming throughout the week. In both cases, a patient will live off-campus and attend classes during the week.
