What Happens in an IOP?
In an intensive outpatient program (IOP), patients attend classes focusing on psychotherapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy. Relapse prevention strategies like recognizing drug abuse triggers and developing coping skills for difficult situations.
Depending on the situation, medication management may also be used to help the person deal with uncomfortable cravings or mental health issues. The classes typically involve lectures, discussion groups, art therapy classes, or 12-step meetings led by trained therapists or counselors who specialize in drug addiction counseling.
During these sessions, participants learn about the nature of their addiction as well as effective strategies for avoiding relapse down the road, such as mindfulness. Additionally, most programs also offer family counseling services so that loved ones can get involved in the recovery process too!
Other treatment services offered during an IOP treatment plan can include the following:
- Yoga classes
- Meditation classes

How long do IOPs last?
Most intensive outpatient programs last anywhere from 4 weeks up to several months, depending on the severity of the substance use disorder. During this period, it is important to stay committed to attending all your scheduled classes and meetings so that you can make progress toward your ultimate goal of achieving sobriety!
After completing the program successfully, you will have all the tools necessary to maintain long-term sobriety moving forward.
