The programming we offer in intensive outpatient treatment is comprehensive, holistic, and individualized care that addresses the underlying causes of addiction for each person. Our intensive outpatient program is appropriate for people who do not meet criteria requiring medical detoxification, twenty-four-hour supervision or structured programming at the PHP level of care.

What is an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?

People in intensive outpatient treatment have more freedom than in higher levels of care and take greater responsibility for managing their own sober lifestyle, with support from peers and clinicians at Spokane Falls Recovery Center.

Counseling and therapeutic activities in IOP allow individuals to explore and address the causes and consequences of their addiction, while learning skills to prevent relapse. Group therapy is an important component of IOP treatment. Groups are process-driven and educational, providing an individual the opportunity to acquire and implement strategies to maintain sobriety.

What Does IOP Include?

Activities in IOP include:

  • 9 hours or more per week of counseling at the center, often 3 hours a day for 3 days a week
  • Weekly individual counseling sessions
  • Case management
  • Drug screening, as required
  • Life skills classes
  • Yoga, meditation, massages
  • Nutrition and mental health services
  • Group therapy sessions

These activities are organized and structured to support the individualized treatment plan that is created with the individual and their clinician.

How Long Does IOP Last?

Our intensive outpatient treatment generally lasts for 2 to 3 months. As with all programming, we base our recommended length of treatment on personal needs, progress in treatment and medical necessity guidelines.

Our intensive outpatient program is here to be a next step after someone has completed a partial hospitalization program or an inpatient rehabilitation program. It can also be effective for people with relatively new or mild substance use disorders.

Regardless of when you begin an IOP, it’s effective at helping you learn a new normal after treatment. As you begin to experience freedom within your treatment, you learn how to create a new schedule back home. This new normal will include regular meetings and appointments along with other activities throughout your day to keep you on the right track long after treatment.
