IOP Program is Coming Soon

Adult/Adolescent Substance Abuse IOP – (COMING SOON)

Intensive Outpatient Treatment (also known as IOP for “Intensive Outpatient Program”) is a primary treatment program recommended in some circumstances by a clinical assessment. IOP may be recommended for those who do not need a medically supervised detox. We do offer medically detox groups for those who are medically evaluated to be in need. IOP can also enable people in need of recovery to take part in intense outpatient therapy, designed to accommodate work and family life.
Start rebuilding your life while still living at home. Begin your recovery on an outpatient basis with inpatient benefits.

In the Intensive Outpatient Program, you receive services primarily through group therapy, but are also assigned an individual therapist you will meet with on a weekly basis while in treatment. Groups are small and generally do not exceed 10 people, allowing for a safe environment.

Advene Health GroupAreas addressed in IOP:

  • Relapse Prevention Skills
  • How to recognize triggers that create cravings.
  • Understanding addiction as a brain disease.
  • Progression of the Disease of Addiction
  • Introduction to the Twelve Steps
  • Recognition of a higher power
  • Dual diagnosis
  • The Family Education Program

Depending on your needs, you may be referred to additional comprehensive mental health treatment, or training in how to increase healthy life skills, or employment counseling, our goal is to have you be mainstreamed back into a functioning life style without it seeming so unobtainable.

When you first start our IOP you will have intensive work to do with us so we can help you through the most difficult times of your recovery. As you become stronger and don’t need such intense services, you will have shorter sessions, less often.

You will then graduate to the next level of the program as you become more independent. Of course our team remains available and ready to assist you at any time in your treatment.

Your assessment by a licensed clinician will determine your eligibility for the IOP treatment program. In some situations, detox may be required. If this should be the case, we could enroll you in that part of the program initially with our onsite physician for supervision.


It is clearly documented in research that family involvement, whether it be parents, spouse significant other sibling or all leads to a better success rate to lasting recovery. Many options are offered to take part in these programs.


Seeing your child resurface as they once were.

The Intensive Outpatient Program is a comprehensive program designed to HELP ADOLESCENTS, TEENS AND YOUNG ADULTS, in the beginning stages of their desire to be clean and sober. I.O.P. consists of group counseling, individual counseling and family counseling. Group sessions are 3-5 hours per day, 2-5 days a week depending on what the assessment outcome is. Family is involved in weekly sessions and a long-term aftercare is offered. The difference with our teen program is that we encourage a strong network among group member so that they are not alone in recovery. We try to plan events and activities so than your teen can see it is possible to have fun sober. Your teen can graduate to a team support leader. The twelve steps are worked on and when the 12th step is achieved of giving back, your teen could use his or her own recovery to help peers. It really is remarkable to see the milestones in each phase of recovery. Parents find they are seeing their child resurface as they once were. Individual counseling is also part of the program.

Is This You?

  1. Are these feelings going through your mind: denial, anger, loneliness, helplessness, frustration, rejection, failure, guilt, shame, fear, blame, etc? Can your family, friends and the ones around you all be wrong? Are you ready to get your life back? We realize that you didn’t intend to end up this way. Addiction is a chronic disease if left untreated, although with a willingness to change you can break from this destructive pattern of behavior.
  2. Don’t worry that you feel that you just can’t do it. Recovery is all about trying and learning from your past/present mistakes. Failure is failing to recognize what you’re doing to yourself, your family and society. Failing to take control of your situation to make a better change in how you live your life.
  3. We care! We have what it takes to bring you back as long as you really(truly) want it, it can really happen. You made your mind up, this is for real.
  4. It’s your decision. You set the course and Advene Health Group will direct you to the right path to solidify your recovery. You need to listen, observe and take direction. We will guide you to make the best decisions for your recovery, while improving the current circumstances or hurdles in your life.
