Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)


Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Whether you just completed Landmark Recovery’s intensive outpatient program or your looking for ongoing resources to keep you motivated and focused on sobriety, our comprehensive IOP will give you the tools you need to stay on track with your sobriety.


What is IOP?

Intensive Outpatient Program (also known as IOP for “Intensive Outpatient Program”) is a primary treatment program recommended by clinicians and medical staff for many individuals newly sober or in need of continuing resources about addiction. IOP may be recommended for those who do not need medically-supervised detox and also to those who completed a detox and residential drug and alcohol program. One of the mainstays of IOP is that patients learn valuable insights into triggers that often lead to drug use and create relapse prevention plans that serve to keep them grounded in recovery for the rest of their lives.


What Will I Do In Landmark’s IOP?

Initial treatment for detox and residential treatment services can be equated to rebuilding the foundation of a house after a fire wreaks havoc on it and burns it to the ground. Detox and subsequent residential treatment will start putting the frames and basic structures back together to create the general structure. However, you won’t be able to get anywhere without internal framework that enables you to climb, move forward and find secure grounding. IOP builds upon the basic fundamentals that you learned in the first weeks of recovery. While it’s essential, detox does not prepare you to with cope with the urge to relapse, conflict and life’s disappointments. That’s where IOP comes in, and it serves to fill in the missing pieces so that you have a complete and functional “house” again.
