Comprehensive Treatment for Recovery

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Intensive Treatment Systems (ITS) provides an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for substance use disorders and mental health for adults. The program is designed to individualize treatment services to meet the specific needs of each patient and his or her family. All treatment programs use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), and Multi-Dimensional Family Therapy (MDFT).

At ITS – IOP is an open group; meaning clients can join the group at any time during their treatment. IOP group sessions are made up of 2, 5, 7 or 10 people. Our IOP’s are led by skilled facilitators who engage participants to set and reach their individual treatment goals.

Group dynamics are used to deliver positive life skills messages to help members build an enduring relapse prevention network, develop health communication skills, learn new life skills, and “bring balance to the often chaotic lives found in addiction.” Intensive Treatment Systems IOP follows evidenced based practice of group sessions being 9 hours per week for 12 weeks.  IOP is designed to help each member gain new insights to help live life in balance.
