Intensive Outpatient Program
Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a group therapy program offered in our office weekday mornings. The IOP is designed to help you manage your psychiatric and/or chemical dependency symptoms in order to:
- Reduce the likelihood that your condition will worsen.
- Maintain newfound gains in managing your condition.
- Prevent a psychiatric and/or drug or alcohol relapse.
You can attend the IOP while working a part-time job, going to school, or participating in a volunteer position. The goal of the IOP is to help you stabilize your condition and transition to greater independence in your life. The IOP offers mental health, dual diagnosis, and substance abuse tracks. The Arroyos IOP is a State Certified Drug and Alcohol Treatment Facility (Certification Number 190870AP). To find more information about our Intensive Outpatient Program, please explore the information below.
The IOP is ideal for patients who would benefit from attending a morning treatment program 3 to 5 days a week while living independently in their own residence, with their family, or in a transitional/sober environment. The IOP is right for you if your psychiatric or chemical dependency symptoms are moderate in severity and you are having difficulties coping in some areas of personal functioning. You are encouraged to have either a part-time job, be attending school on a part-time basis, or volunteering on a part-time basis.
The IOP is offered from 9:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. You can attend the IOP from three to five days a week, and you can pick which days you would like to attend.

While The Arroyos Treatment Centers is an out-of-network provider, we do work with many insurance companies who offer out-of-network benefits for programs such as our IOP. If you are interested in finding out about using your insurance for our IOP, please call for an appointment or contact us via email. We can contact your insurance company to see what type of coverage and benefits you have for our IOP.
We strongly support an abstinence model for the treatment of substance use disorders. We require a commitment to abstinence for any patient attending our Intensive Outpatient Program and conduct drug and alcohol testing routinely. As health care professionals, we view the treatment of substance use disorders similarly to that of any other mental disorder. As such, our chemical dependency program is not 12-step based. Instead our evidence-based program incorporates cognitive behavior therapy, rational-emotive behavior therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy in our group programs. We also include psychoeducation, psychotherapy, and new advances in psychopharmacology. We strongly encourage our patients to participate in community abstinence-based support networks and provide but we do not endorse any specific program.
