Outpatient Treatment Centers

An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a kind of treatment service and support program used primarily to treat alcoholism and substance abuse that does not rely on detoxification. IOP operates on a small scale and does not require the intensive residential or partial day services typically offered by the larger, more comprehensive treatment facilities. IOP allows the individual to be able to participate in their daily affairs, such as work, and then participate in treatment at an appropriate facility during the day or in the evening. The typical IOP program encourages active participation in 12-step programs in addition to the IOP participation.
