Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Royal Life Centers’ 8-week intensive outpatient program (IOP) is the second stage with our 12-week aftercare program. IOP is composed of two phases to afford guests a smooth transition throughout the entirety of our aftercare program.

Following a 4-week period of PHP, guests begin the first 4-week period of intensive outpatient. During phase one of IOP, guests participate in group therapy sessions for 5 hours Monday through Friday and for 3 hours on Saturday. Following the completion of phase one, guests move on to phase two of IOP which consists of 3 group therapy sessions per week, 3 hours per day.

Through their time in intensive outpatient, guests attend weekly individual therapy sessions. During their one-on-one sessions, guests hone the skills learned throughout their time at Royal and participate in job readiness training that covers resume building, interview skills, and job placement. IOP provides education, resources, and skills that prepare guests for a life of recovery outside of the facility.

Our Holistic Approach

Holistic treatment in IOP includes group, individual, movement/activity, adventure, and equine therapies, as well as psychiatry with medication management. At Royal Life Centers, we incorporate only evidence-based treatments, highlighted in all areas of our programming: individual and group therapy, psychiatric evaluation, psychotherapy, recreational opportunities, relapse prevention, education on gender-specific issues, trauma resolution, grief and loss, anger management, depression, and 12-step meetings.

The comprehensive approach to IOP is a collaborative and all-encompassing treatment aimed to heal inspire mental, physical, and spiritual change in the lives of our guests. We believe that incorporating many different therapies— from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) to activity and adventure therapy— is the best technique to identify the best course of treatment for each guest.

Royal Life Centers’ IOP treatment integrates the personalities and needs of each guest into their treatment— we don’t believe in the practice of placing guests in pre-determined, pre-scheduled groups. Instead, guests work closely with their primary therapist to develop an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to meet their unique needs, and with their case manager to learn about the community resources available to them.

Putting You First

After completing our inpatient programs, guests who would like to continue with us in our aftercare program most commonly will choose to live in our Sober Housing on property. Our Sober housing is only available to current guests who have completed our inpatient treatment programs. We model the responsibility of paying bills and budgeting with low weekly rent for a nice apartment or home that is fully furnished with cable/internet and is accompanied by the safety and security of a sober living staff nearby. Paying rent for sober housing begins after we help you find employment— in phase 2 of the 12-week program. Rent is a weekly cost of $50 (weeks 4-8) and rises to $75 (weeks 9-12).

To complete our 12-week outpatient program and be eligible to move on to our graduate housing, guests must have obtained a job. Our staff members are facilitators at every stage of the job-finding process and assist guests with everything from connecting them with potential opportunities to providing transportation to and from interviews.

Our team of addiction specialists make themselves available to take your call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Because We Care.
