Outpatient Individual Addiction Counseling (OP)
A patient who wants individual substance use counseling in an outpatient setting will meet with a qualified professional typically at least once per week. During individual sessions, they can expect to meet with a counselor, discuss their individual treatment goals, participate in evidence-based therapy, and work on developing the skills necessary to maintain long-term successful recovery.
Outpatient Group Addiction Counseling (OP)
A patient who wants group sessions will typically meet at least once a week. Groups typically consist of roughly 10 patients per group to ensure that the group size is comfortable and all participants are able to participate meaningfully. During group sessions, a patient will work with their peers on developing coping skills and other necessary recovery skills. Groups will be run by a qualified professional and group topics will be chosen to reflect the needs of the patients.
Intensive Outpatient Addiction Counseling (IOP)
A patient who needs more intensive interventions can participate in an intensive outpatient program (IOP) that will typically meet for nine hours a week. Designed for those requiring a higher level of care, IOP is often a service that patients returning from inpatient treatment attend as part of a step-down reduction in treatment. The IOP program is led by qualified professionals and is designed around the most current evidence-based practices in addiction treatment.
