What Is an Intensive Outpatient Program?
The intensive outpatient program (IOP) at The Recovery Village Atlanta helps clients transition to living in the community after living onsite at the facility. In an IOP, clients receive several hours of rehab therapies each week to address the emotional and mental impacts of addiction and co-occurring disorders.
Is intensive outpatient treatment right for me?
If these apply to you, attending our IOP could be the next step in your recovery.
What to Expect In Our IOP
Many patients need more than an inpatient rehab stay to feel fully ready to enter life in recovery. Our IOP offers comprehensive daytime therapy so you can keep getting intensive support while living at home.
IOP patients attend at least nine hours of therapy per week. You’ll have medical appointments, one-on-one sessions with your therapist, and skills-based group therapy sessions that help you develop strategies for daily sober living.
