What To Expect

IOP therapy is centered around about 10-12 hours of group and individual therapy each week, as well as encouraging participation in a 12-step program. Patients in intensive outpatient programs (IOP) typically visit a facility three to four times per week, often for three hours at a time or more.

At Transformation Health, your treatment will incorporate these core aspects in an organized approach that sets you up for success.

  • 12-Step facilitation


  • Cognitive-behavioral 


  • Motivational


  • Therapeutic community 


  • Matrix model


  • Community reinforcement and contingency management

Ideal candidates for IOP therapy have a safe home environment. This includes encouraging family members and friends who provide a strong support system. If a person lives with other people who use drugs or drink, residential treatment is typically suggested to get the person away from these triggers for relapse.
