Intensive Outpatient Program

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is designed for individuals with a substance use disorder who require more than weekly counseling. The program provides monitoring several times a week in a supportive group setting. The group meets three times a week for three hours, for an average of 5 weeks.

This level of care is appropriate for those who are experiencing high stress life circumstances that make it more difficult to cope with urges and cravings to use substances, and those who have not been able to stabilize their substance use in a traditional outpatient setting.

IOP is for individuals who are able and willing to commit to a structured program requiring regular attendance and active participation. We understand each person in this program comes with very diverse issues and problems, and we are sensitive to everyone’s needs, personality, communication style, readiness to change and personal preferences. We will work with you to develop a treatment plan that takes into consideration these preferences within the structure and guidelines of the outpatient addiction program.

Relapse Prevention

This outpatient treatment group provides a safe and supportive learning environment for persons recovering from substance use disorders. This service is ideal for those who have already completed other treatment programs such as IOP, and need continuing care or for those who have had some recovery success but struggle with relapse.

Substance Use Disorders Counseling

Cherry Health offers multiple substance use disorder services from intensive outpatient to traditional outpatient services. Outpatient substance use treatment is provided by experienced credentialed therapists and is generally facilitated through the use of individual one-to-one sessions lasting 45 to 60 minutes. All therapists are capable of treating persons with both mental health and substance use disorders. Therapists are trained to help patients reduce risky behaviors related to using substances such as tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, and other addictive substances.
