    What is an Intensive Outpatient Program?

    The intensive outpatient program (IOP) model integrates recovery tasks, therapeutic support, internal and outside resources that build a solid foundation into recovery. The IOP treatment program is structured; however, it is individualized to accommodate the patients’ needs.

    At Sano Counseling Center, our IOP can be effective in the treatment of the following:

    Rather than residential treatment programs, IOPs allow you to continue with your routine, day-to-day life, including living at home.

    Benefits of Intensive Outpatient Programs

    There are several different benefits of choosing intensive outpatient therapy with Sano Counseling Center, which include:


    Unfortunately, moments of embarrassment or shame can become a roadblock during the recovery process. Thankfully, your recovery community at Sano Counseling Center can help you to find the confidence you need, all while feeling safe as you go through your recovery process at your own pace.

    Lower Cost

    Inpatient recovery therapy can be costly. Alternatively, intensive outpatient therapy can be provided to you at a fraction of the cost, making it a more feasible solution for some.

    Maintain Presence

    Undergoing weeks of recovery can be challenging for those who cannot uproot their lives, including work or school. Thankfully, through intensive outpatient therapy services, you can maintain the flexibility of your regular schedule, allowing you a healthy outlet during your recovery process.

    Build Community

    Having a strong sense of community amongst peers is a crucial element to maintaining sobriety. With the intensive outpatient therapy services offered at Sano Counseling Center, you can develop a deep sense of community amongst others who understand what you are going through.

    Our Intensive Outpatient Programs

    The duration of a patient’s participation in the program can extend from a brief period of four weeks to more extensive involvement of three months. Typically, the first 30 days consist of the most intensive and rigorous involvement and then tapers down the following months.

    A typical IOP treatment plan will include Individual Therapy, Group Therapy, Psycho-education, and Recovery Coaching.

    Your assessing therapist will recommend the frequency of each modality. In an IOP program, you are likely to work with multiple therapists who will consult with each other to provide you the best level of care.

    Cost estimates for IOP are not given until your therapist has proposed a treatment plan. Because of the customization offered at Sano, each IOP client can expect a different cost for treatment.
