Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Intensive outpatient programs, or IOPs, are a beneficial component of addiction treatment recovery. These programs serve as the final step in a continuum of care after the successful completion of residential inpatient and partial hospitalization programs. During intensive outpatient, you receive intensive monitoring and support that act as a bridge to increased freedom within an outpatient program.

Working with experienced therapists and counselors to build strong recovery foundations, intensive outpatient programs set you up for long-term success in sobriety. At the same time, IOP also allows you to steadily increase your independence and responsibility toward managing your own recovery.

What Happens During Intensive Outpatient?

Throughout your time in intensive outpatient, you’ll attend weekly individual therapy sessions. During one-on-one sessions, you’ll further discuss the relapse-prevention skills learned throughout your time at Royal. You’ll also participate in job-readiness training. This covers resume-building, interview skills, and job placement. During intensive outpatient you’ll gain the education, resources, and skills that prepare you for recovery outside of the treatment facility. IOP integrates you into greater responsibility while maintaining strong clinical guidance.

Access to intensive outpatient programs is an invaluable resource and can make all the difference when it comes to achieving lasting healing from addiction issues.

Our Holistic Approach to IOP

Our comprehensive approach to IOP is a collaborative and all-encompassing treatment aimed to heal mental, physical, and spiritual changes in your life. 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 way to find out what approaches the best support your recovery.

Holistic treatment in Royal’s intensive outpatient program includes group therapy and individual counseling. We also offer a blend of other traditional and holistic approaches, which may include:

Royal Life Centers’ IOP treatment considers your unique needs and preferences as we create your treatment plan. We don’t believe in placing you in pre-determined, pre-scheduled groups. Instead, you’ll work closely with your primary therapist to develop an Individual Service Plan (ISP), and with your case manager to learn about community resources available to you.

Our Intensive Outpatient Program

Royal Life Centers’ eight-week intensive outpatient program (IOP) is the second stage of our 12-week aftercare program. IOP includes two phases so you have a smooth transition through aftercare into outpatient treatment.

Following a four-week period of partial hospitalization, you’ll begin the first four-week period of intensive outpatient treatment. During phase one of IOP, you’ll participate in group therapy sessions for five hours Monday through Friday and for three hours on Saturdays. Following the completion of phase one, you’ll move on to phase two of IOP, which consists of three group therapy sessions per week, three hours per day.

IOP Sober Living Arrangements

During intensive outpatient, most of our guests choose to live in our sober living homes on the property. Within our 12-week program, we offer a beautiful apartment or home that is fully furnished and includes cable/internet.

Sober living staff is available to support you and ensure your safety and security around the clock. If you choose to live in one of our sober living residences, you’ll practice real-world skills like paying bills and budgeting. Paying rent for sober living begins after we help you find employment — in phase 2 of the 12-week program.

Our staff members are facilitators at every stage of the job search process and will help you with everything from connections to potential opportunities to providing transportation to and from interviews.
