Choosing to seek treatment can impact your life, and your future, in monumental ways, and because of this, we are so thankful you’ve trusted Next Step Recovery with your substance use disorder care!
The goal of our intensive outpatient program is to help you find the right level of treatment for your personal struggle with alcohol and drug addiction. Read on to find out if our intensive outpatient programs are a good fit for you to begin your journey to recovery and lifelong sobriety.
Why an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is a unique level of care that allows patients to come into the facility for several hours, multiple days per week for treatment, then return home at night. The goal of an intensive outpatient program is to help an individual transition back to their life outside of substance abuse treatment, while still receiving the support of an addiction treatment program.
IOP is an ideal outpatient substance abuse treatment option for a person who has reliable transportation to travel between home and their preferred addiction treatment center. And because they will not be staying overnight at a treatment facility, as they would in inpatient programs, it is crucial the person has a supportive family unit to help reinforce what is covered in their treatment services.

Understanding Substance Abuse Treatment
Substance abuse is a chronic mental illness that requires mental health services and clinical treatment to overcome. A person should seek out rehab for their alcohol or drug addiction when they can no longer participate in their daily life without regular substance use.
Because substance use disorders are the result of a person’s physical and mental substance dependence, most individuals will first need to complete a medical detox before continuing with an IOP. This process allows a person to remove dangerous toxins from their body, and decrease the risk of relapse before diving into the underlying struggle that created the addictive tendencies.
Finding the Level of Treatment that Works for Your Recovery Journey
A person can receive treatment for substance abuse on a variety of levels, from residential treatment programs to outpatient services. The biggest difference between each level of care is the amount of time a person daily commits to addiction treatment and whether or not they will stay overnight at any treatment centers. Your ideal treatment programs are determined mostly by the level of support needed to stay sober, risk of relapse, and the support you receive at home! Remember, recovery is a journey! And for many, intensive outpatient treatment is the level of care needed for lifelong sobriety.
Relapse prevention is our goal during your time at Next Step Recovery. During all programs, men learn effective coping skills and receive community support to prevent relapse, and prepare for a sober future.
Types of Intensive Outpatient treatment
Intensive outpatient treatment programs will usually last for a few hours 3 to 5 days a week. Your time at our addiction treatment facility consists of therapy sessions to get to the root cause of addiction, and understanding how to manage triggering situations in the future. These counseling services usually include a combination of individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy sessions.
We believe in the power of mental health in addiction recovery! Because of this, you are offered a safe, private space to address the underlying causes of your addiction and work on developing healthy coping strategies for your future. Group therapy and family therapy help you practice having hard conversations about your substance abuse with others, while also forming positive relationships.
Some participants may also benefit from dual diagnosis treatment, where you can receive treatment for co-occurring disorders like substance abuse and mental health issues at the same time.
