What is IOP

IOP stands for Intensive Outpatient Program. IOP tends to be a best fit for those who do not need inpatient level of care but when symptoms require greater therapeutic support than what can be achieved in the individual outpatient counseling. IOP is structured psychotherapy in a small group format. Group settings are effective in developing self-awareness, emotional management, and social awareness.

What benefits does IOP provide?

An IOP has a lot of benefits; being a good mixture of high quality treatment with the freedom to continue on with your obligations in life because you are only attending treatment part time. Outpatient programs are also often much cheaper than inpatient programs.
