Intensive Outpatient Program

Intensive Outpatient Program

Rosecrance’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) is structured outpatient care where clients receive evidence-based treatment for substance use disorders weekly and monthly. There are varying levels of IOP care that are individualized for a client’s specific needs where they can step down, have new opportunities for education and connection, and meet less frequently as they make progress in their recovery journeys.

How an intensive outpatient program (IOP) works

Moving throughout the intensive outpatient program (IOP) continuum of care provides the support clients need for strong, lasting recovery. IOP may be particularly helpful for individuals stepping down from residential treatment as well as for those who need more support than outpatient services.

IOP includes individualized substance use treatment with group and individual counseling, educational sessions and special topic groups, and planning for relapse prevention.

Rosecrance offers IOP for adolescents and adults at most of our locations in person and virtually in Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Common IOP schedules include group counseling for nine hours per week for eight to 10 weeks, with stepdown options that meet for about five hours weekly for four weeks, and then individualized continuing care. Additional education is provided to prevent substance use, avoid triggers, build connections in recovery, promote family support, and learn about/attend 12-Step meetings.

Some of our programming includes care for co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders, incorporating treatment methods such as dialectal behavioral therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) that help with emotional regulation.
