Intensive Outpatient Program

Call one of our admissions coordinators to help you find an intensive outpatient program today.

What is an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?

Our Intensive outpatient program is crucial for patients who complete inpatient drug rehab or partial hospitalization programming with an addiction treatment center. Patients at this level of care have a balance between structured accountability and increased freedom to work, volunteer, and time with their sober support networks.

Individuals stay at home or in sober living residences. They leave the property and engage in their daily lives independently while still respecting a curfew and structured scheduling. This level of care is not appropriate for individuals who are still experiencing post-acute withdrawal symptoms and need medical detox.

While in our Florida drug and alcohol treatment program, individuals have developed sober support networks and begin seeking employment or fulfilling volunteer or education commitments.


IOP Drug and Alcohol Treatment

Our South Florida treatment facility offers different types of addiction treatment options. The intensive outpatient program is designed to provide a support system that allows our patients to receive mental health treatment. In addition, it includes cognitive-behavioral therapies proven to treat substance use disorders.

At this level of care, patients live at home and visit our treatment center to receive health services to treat their addiction.

Personalized Approach

Our outpatient treatment plans follow a personalized approach that caters to your individual needs. From the length of treatment and the types of therapies, our specialists will take the time to understand what you need to be successful in rehab.

Flexible Schedule

Enjoy the flexibility of an outpatient program with the structure of inpatient programs. They are designed for those who can’t leave their responsibilities behind. IOPs offer an opportunity to get the treatment they need to beat addiction.

Group Therapy

Addiction can be quite isolating. Through intensive outpatient programs, you have the opportunity to participate in group therapy sessions to build a sense of community that promotes sobriety and recovery.

The group sessions in which clients participate are of varying types to address a range of treatments and skills required to recover from addiction successfully.

Individual Therapy

Those seeking treatment from IOPs will also usually have access to individual therapy as well. Individual therapy focuses on the pressing problems caused by patient’s substance abuse and their efforts to remain abstinent. In individual therapy sessions, patients often dig deeper into the work done in group therapy, allowing them to spend more time on individual issues.

Support Groups

Most IOPs recommend that clients participate in peer support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.  A large part of the intensive outpatient program is spent learning coping mechanisms and life skills necessary to maintain sobriety after treatment. We develop customized aftercare support plans for every single one of our patients.

Dual Diagnosis

Dual Diagnosis treatment programs are appropriate for individuals struggling with co-occurring mental illness. Thus, these programs incorporate evidence-based psychological and psychiatric therapies to provide addiction evidence-based treatment services for mental health and co-occurring difficulties.

What to Expect During Intensive Outpatient Treatment

Individuals have access to the gym, nutrition consultations, medical staff, psychiatric services, and more.

IOPs are an essential aspect of care for people seeking help in overcoming addiction. For many people, inpatient care – whether in a hospital, clinic, rehab, or another facility – can be challenging.

By offering ongoing care we ensure that the IOP program at Lighthouse Recovery Institute serves as a healthy transition period. This prepares patients for increased independence as they continue to progress in their recovery.

Addiction is a complicated and often misunderstood disorder. Quality Florida intensive outpatient treatment requires a comprehensive and compassionate team-based approach. Each person’s length of stay is individualized to best suit their specific needs and their one-of-a-kind treatment plan.

People often have family or work commitments that prevent them from entering full-time care. They can’t leave their lives behind for an extended period of time.

For these people, IOPs are often the best choice. They still get intensive treatment, but they can reside at home.
