iop - online intensive outpatient program

Our most comprehensive program and long term recovery option for substance abuse.

what is iop?

Intensive outpatient program (IOP) is a level of treatment for substance use disorders on the continuum of care between outpatient treatment (OP) and higher levels of care, which include residential inpatient treatment and all-day partial hospitalization (PHP). Iwilltillirecover’s online program is as effective as treatment provided in a traditional setting, but has the advantages of privacy and convenience which in-person programs cannot provide.

is iop treatment effective?

Clinical research and practice have established that intensive outpatient treatment is an effective and viable way for individuals with a range of substance use disorders to begin their recovery. In fact, a broad study performed in 2014 found that intensive outpatient treatment is as effective as inpatient treatment for most individuals.

what makes Iwilltillirecover iop different

Unlike traditional intensive outpatient programs where clients visit an addiction treatment center three to four times per week, with Iwilltillirecover’s Intensive Outpatient Treatment, you can get help without leaving the comfort of your own home. While treatment plans are unique for each individual, most clients spend 4-6 weeks in the intensive program. The entire process from IOP to OP to discharge takes about 12 weeks total. Once discharged, Iwilltillirecover’s online recovery community provides continued support and connection through free recovery meetings.

commonly asked questions​

Intensive Outpatient Program is for people who:

1. Do not need medically-supervised stabilization (detox), do not have severely acute mental health comorbidities, and can commit to a program at the IOP level of care.

2. Cannot attend residential inpatient rehab due to work obligations, child care, lack of transportation, disability/mobility challenges, and other reasons but still would benefit from an intense substance use disorder treatment program. A broad study performed in 2014 found that IOP is as effective as inpatient treatment for most individuals.

 

An intensive outpatient program is also referred to as partial hospitalization because of the time commitment it requires.

Additionally, intensive outpatient programs are for people who:

Have graduated residential inpatient rehab and will use IOP to maintain a lot of structure and support groups as they integrate back into the world.

SUD treatment is professional psychology, provided by licensed therapists who hold degrees at the Master and PhD levels. SUD treatment follows the best practices of the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) and is highly structured. It is classified as a “brief intervention” because the average length of treatment is several weeks, followed by aftercare.

Mutual self-help groups, which include the 12 Step traditions, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, and alternatives including Iwilltillirecover’s CommUnity meetings, are led by peers at various levels and with various amounts of time in recovery. Depending on the group, the meeting may be very structured or less structured. Social connectedness has been shown to improve brain health by promoting the production of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) which creates new neurons and repairs damaged neurons and glial cells. In contrast to SUD treatment, mutual self-help group participation can last a lifetime and provides ongoing social support. Typically, there is no charge to attend mutual self-help groups, though donations are accepted.

Online IOP is as effective as in-person, so it is a matter of preference. Iwilltillirecover clients get help from the privacy of home – or wherever they can access a secure Internet connection. Iwilltillirecover treatment schedules fit into clients’ busy lives, rather than the other way around. Because Iwilltillirecover therapists live in every time U.S. zone, clients can choose the time of day and days of week that make sense for them.

 

One of the problems that a lot of patients have with intensive outpatient programs is that it is often impossible for them to make their groups on time every time. For example, a patient can have weird hours at work that change from week-to-week, but if they miss their sessions at IOP, they will be discharged from the program. If the person is court-ordered to attend IOP, that can create legal hardships and violations.
