Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) Las Vegas

Vogue Recovery Center’s Las Vegas & Phoenix locations offer intensive outpatient programs (IOP) that typically include 9 to 15 hours of addiction treatment a week. Most times, this is spread over three to five weekdays. Many treatment centers offer intensive outpatient rehab in either the morning or evening, so it’s possible to continue fulfilling work, school, or family obligations.

An IOP can ease the transition between residential treatment or a partial hospitalization program and independence in recovery. If you don’t require a higher level of care, IOP can be a good option if you can’t take time away from work or family. An intensive outpatient program will mainly consist of group therapy. You may also meet with an individual therapist or case manager from time to time. As the name implies, you receive treatment on an outpatient basis, so you don’t live at the treatment facility like you would in residential care (also known as an inpatient treatment program).

The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) defines intensive outpatient programs as Level II substance abuse care. Level II is a lower level of care than inpatient rehab and a higher level of care than other types of outpatient rehab. The goals of an IOP are to:

  • Help you learn how to manage early-stage relapse symptoms
  • Teach healthy coping skills
  • Build support systems
  • Help you achieve emotional, physical, psychological, and social health in recovery

What Therapies Are Offered in IOP?

Types of treatment offered in an IOP depend on which program you attend. The main component of intensive outpatient treatment is group therapy. Many addiction treatment centers like Vogue Recovery Center also provide one-on-one counseling as part of intensive outpatient care.

Outpatient care may include:

Is an Intensive Outpatient Program Right for Me?

Many people struggling with drug and alcohol abuse find they need the structure and 24-hour support of residential treatment in the early days of sobriety. IOP is an excellent option for people who have completed a residential treatment program or have some sobriety under their belt and need to work and attend to their daily routines.

An intensive outpatient program is different from inpatient rehab. It may be a good fit if you:

  • Need a step-down treatment option as you transition out of inpatient rehab or a partial hospitalization program
  • Don’t require a higher level of care
  • Cannot take time away from home or work responsibilities
  • Need more structure than a typical outpatient program

Medical and behavioral health professionals will recommend an appropriate level of care for you based on factors like:

  • The severity of your drug or alcohol dependency
  • If you need mental health treatment for co-occurring disorders
  • Your history of relapses and/or risk of relapse

What Happens After Intensive Outpatient Treatment?

Many people gradually transition into independence by attending an outpatient program (OP) after intensive outpatient treatment. The difference between an IOP and an OP is the number of hours you spend in treatment. An outpatient program is usually one to three hours a week of group therapy. It provides a weekly touchpoint in a treatment setting where you process challenges to your sobriety and practice relapse-prevention skills.

Most people in this stage of recovery begin attending recovery groups like  AA, NA, or SMART Recovery to support their professional addiction treatment plan at Vogue Recovery Center.

Vogue’s Intensive Outpatient Programs

Vogue Recovery Center offers intensive outpatient programs at our Las Vegas and Phoenix rehab centers. Our IOPs provide regular structure, support from peers in recovery, and guidance from behavioral health professionals.

Depending on your needs, you’ll attend outpatient substance abuse treatment up to 15 hours a week. The duration of IOP addiction treatment depends on your individual recovery journey. Some clients are ready to transition out of the program in 24 weeks. Others may need longer. The time it takes to feel confident in recovery and build strong skills to prevent relapses is different for everyone.

You will attend group and individual therapy, work on coping skills with peers, and have a safe space to practice your new skills before living a life free from addiction. When deemed part of your recovery treatment, some clients also receive medical-assisted treatment (MAT) and medication management.
