Intensive Outpatient Program
IOP in Los Angeles
Addiction is often described as a chronic and progressive disease, which refers to the general pattern that can be seen among individuals who struggle with a drug or alcohol addiction. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism reported that approximately 10% of the US population has or will struggle with a substance use disorder at some point during their lives.
We know that addiction affects everyone differently. Some may find that the progression of their addiction spans over a few decades, while others find themselves struggling with an addiction shortly after beginning to abuse substances. Addiction affects individuals of all ages across the world. This disease doesn’t discriminate and can truly impact anyone who abuses substances.
Addiction treatment is available on an inpatient and outpatient treatment basis. Inpatient treatment settings can include detoxification and inpatient rehab programs. These are ideal for individuals who are physically dependent on substances and those who are struggling with a severe substance use disorder.

What Exactly is Intensive Outpatient?
Outpatient treatment programs allow for an individual to live at home or in a sober living environment. Outpatient treatment programs will vary in intensity and frequency, allowing for a continuous support source in early recovery. Many outpatient rehab centers offer a variety of treatment programs so that your treatment plan can progress with you as you move through your recovery.
One of the outpatient treatment options that may be available to you is an Intensive Outpatient Program, commonly referred to as IOP. IOP treatment can act as a bridge for individuals completing an inpatient treatment program and returning home. Additionally, individuals who do not meet the criteria for an inpatient treatment program but would benefit from a more significant support source may be a good fit for an IOP group.

Preparing for Treatment at an IOP in Los Angeles
Intensive Outpatient Programs can have slight differences when comparing different treatment centers. IOPs earned the name “Intensive” because they tend to include longer group sessions than a routine outpatient treatment program.
As an example, IOPs will often require that an individual attend a 3-hour group session 3 to 5 days each week with an additional hour of individual therapy. The frequency at which a person is expected to attend group sessions will be dependent on the severity of their addiction.
IOP group sessions are designed to provide group members with a working knowledge of addiction and recovery, serving as the foundation for a healthy recovery. A significant amount of time will be spent identifying triggers and discussing healthy coping skills for triggers and cravings. Other topics that can be covered include healthy relationships, the importance of sober support, setting boundaries, effective communication, and coping with other mental health concerns.

Intensive Outpatient Programs are often a short-term treatment option lasting, on average, 4 to 12 weeks. As a person progresses through their IOP, there will be an open discussion with their counselor about their progression and what to expect when they complete IOP.

What are the Benefits of IOP?
Intensive Outpatient Programs can help you learn new coping skills that you may not have known about. For many, substances can be used to numb our emotions or serve as a way to cope with uncomfortable emotions. If you can relate to that, it is likely that you have noticed that coping with those distressing emotions without the use of substances is hard. IOP groups give you a space to learn about skills you could use, hear what worked for others, learn what didn’t help others, and provide you with a space to talk about your own experience with challenging emotions and situations. IOP programs can be tailored to fit your needs. When you meet with a counselor for your intake appointment, they will take time to learn about your unique experience with drugs and alcohol and determine what treatment would work best with your schedule while addressing your treatment needs.
An additional benefit to IOP programs is that most will require you to meet with an individual counselor each week. Individual therapy can give you time to talk about concerns that have not come up in a group session, and concerns that you may not be ready to talk about in a group setting. If you have been living with other mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and trauma-related disorders, individual sessions can give you a set time to receive mental health treatment.
For individuals who have completed an inpatient treatment program, IOP groups can provide you with a bridge from inpatient to outpatient treatment. You will not have the full day of treatment that you would in an inpatient program. However, you would get more exposure than in a routine outpatient program. Since IOPs are not a long-term treatment option, they can help you adjust to the decreasing frequency of group sessions.
