Intensive outpatient Program (IOP) Rehab

Home Outpatient Intensive outpatient Program (IOP) Rehab

Commit to recovery and responsibilities with RCA’s IOP

If you need an intensive form of outpatient care, yet don’t quite need a full day of treatment, IOP is laser-focused treatment with a bit more flexibility. Most clients have 3-hour sessions, three times per week. This shorter day of treatment still has all the same helpful elements as Partial Hospitalization Program, but it isn’t a full day. This way, you can keep your commitments and responsibilities without jeopardizing your recovery.

RCA’s Substance Abuse Intensive outpatient Program curriculum includes:

Individual & group therapy:

  • Develop early recovery skills
  • Manages relapse triggers
