Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
St. Christopher’s Addiction Wellness Center offers outpatient services to meet the needs of chemically dependent and/or dually diagnosed men and women and their families.
Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is designed for people who are ready to return to work, school or other responsibilities, are motivated for recovery, and do not meet the medical criteria for residential treatment. IOP can also be utilized as step-down in the continuum of care for persons who have completed primary residential treatment.
The Intensive Outpatient Program is scheduled 3 evenings per week; family group is held once per week. Our program uses 12 Step and proven clinical treatment methods to help our clients make positive changes in their lives.
With a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, the IOP client spends 9 hours per week engaging in the following activities:
- Group counseling
- Individual counseling
- Specialty therapies to address anger, trauma, self-esteem, and other core issues.
- Family group
- Educational classes
- Spirituality Awareness
- Relapse prevention training
- 12 Step meetings (off-site)
- Referral for Psychiatric Consultation (Additional charge may apply)
- Referral for Co-occurring Capable Services (Additional charges may apply)
Upon completion, we offer 52 weeks of Aftercare free of charge.
