What is an evening intensive outpatient program?
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is a type of treatment option that incorporates group therapy and individual therapy into one program that can last anywhere from eight to 12 weeks, depending on a patient’s needs. There is a significant time commitment required, as patients will meet either three or five days a week for three hours of group sessions and an hour of individualized treatment.
Although IOPs can be very beneficial for those battling addiction, they are not always the most accessible form of treatment. Because of the time commitment, it can be hard for some people to dedicate 12 to 20 hours a week to attend addiction recovery treatment, even if they know that it could benefit them greatly. This is why Flatirons Recovery is proud to offer evening IOPs that should be much more convenient for anyone with a lot of commitments during the day.
Is an evening IOP right for me?
Evening IOPs are similar to night classes offered by colleges in that they are much more convenient for parents, people who work full-time, and others who have important things going on during the day. If you’re struggling with addiction but cannot free up enough time in your day or week to attend an IOP during the day, our evening IOP might be right for you. Contact us today to learn more!
