INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM (IOP)
Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are treatment programs, based in the outpatient settings for patients who need more support and intensive level of care but do not need inpatient or partial hospital level of care.
They enable patients to continue with their normal, day-to-day lives in a way that residential treatment programs do not. Whereas residential treatment requires that clients reside on site, clients in intensive outpatient programs live at home.
IOPs are sometimes used in conjunction with inpatient programs as a way of stabilizing patients post discharge or as a form of step-down from more intenstive residential or inpatient programs.
helping clients to more smoothly and seamlessly integrate back into their families and communities. our iop is designed to establish support mechanisms, help with relapse management, and provide coping strategies.
