Sometimes a more intensive level of counseling care is needed than can be provided in a traditional outpatient counseling setting, which typically involves meeting one-on-one with a counselor, for about one hour per week. When more care is needed, Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) can provide a higher level of services.
Intensive Outpatient Programs consist of group sessions typically held three to four days a week for about three hours per day, with an average group size of about 8-12 members. They may also involve individual and family therapy sessions, which may be held outside of the normally scheduled group times.
The comprehensive nature of a higher model of care in an IOP, along with a higher frequency of sessions, allows for improved client outcomes but also creates the flexibility for clients to remain in the community and avoid residential programming or hospitalization. This will allow clients to continue working and living in their own homes. The program also includes supportive services for families and aftercare services following completion of the program.
