Intensive Outpatient

Speak to an Addiction Specialist Now

People struggling with addiction need tailored treatment to help them receive the support and education they need to get sober. Addiction treatment programs vary in intensity, length, and curriculums. An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is a moderately intense approach to addiction recovery that provides people with the tools they need to get and stay sober.

At BlueCrest Recovery, our intensive outpatient program meets multiple times a week with clients who completed our partial care program or who do not need that level of support. We utilize evidence-based and holistic treatment methods to help people break their dependence on drugs and alcohol so they can reclaim their lives and stride toward a healthier future.

Is an Intensive Outpatient Program Right For Me?

Intensive outpatient programs offer flexibility to accommodate work, childcare schedules, or other obligations. Unlike inpatient programs, IOPs allow you to continue your daily life without sacrificing your work schedule and family responsibilities.

Generally, IOPs are best for those with safe and stable home environments. Since you will still maintain your work, social, and family life, it’s important to remember your responsibility of staying sober when you’re away from our treatment facility.

Most clients in our IOP live independently or with their families. However, some do reside in a sober living environment. A client who is appropriate for our IOP generally has strong external support from family or friends and has engaged in a 12-step program. With this support in place, clients can thrive in our IOP with fewer weekly treatment hours than partial care.

Benefits of An Intensive Outpatient Program

As previously mentioned, IOPs offer great flexibility for those with busy work schedules or family lives, but that isn’t the only benefit of an IOP. IOPs offer several great benefits, including:

  • Maintaining your privacy
  • Being more affordable than inpatient programs
  • Staying close to friends and family
  • Creating a sense of community with others in the recovery process

Plus, our IOP uses the same principles as our more structured partial care program. Our clients receive a well-rounded care plan that promotes healing and recovery with evidence-based therapies, holistic treatment, and family involvement.

How Does BlueCrest Recovery’s Intensive Outpatient Program Work?

Clients in our intensive outpatient program (IOP) meet either three or five days per week for three hours per day, depending on the level of care needed. Day sessions run from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Monday through Friday. Evening sessions are from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to accommodate those with busy schedules during the day or who have other obligations.

Five Day Plans

Clients transitioning from partial care most often begin attending IOP five days per week. Treatment days are scaled back as they progress in their recovery and are working towards and achieving their treatment plan goals.

Three Day Plans

Once clients step down to three days per week, they can coordinate with their counselor to agree upon treatment days that work best with their responsibilities, in the evening or during the day. Although clients typically attend either the day or evening program, having the option to use both is highly beneficial to those with fluctuating work schedules.

BlueCrest Recovery requires that clients attend outside 12-step meetings more often to replace treatment sessions when clients stop attending the IOP as often. Continually building a 12-step program while decreasing program hours will ultimately facilitate the transition from a structured clinical environment to an external support system. When combined with comprehensive treatment, clients attending our IOP have already established a strong foundation for their recovery.
