Substance use disorder intensive outpatient programs (also known as IOP's) are direct treatment services for people with substance use disorders or co-occurring disorders who do not require medical detoxification or 24-hour supervision. The MN Department of Human Services recognizes IOP's as an alternative to inpatient and residential treatment.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment is a primary treatment program that can be recommended by a clinical comprehensive assessment. Clients participate in group and individual therapy, while working on an individualized treatment plan. Treatment is supported by a multi-disciplinary team including LADC's, Mental Health Therapists (if needed), Peer Recovery Specialists and Case Workers. Intensive outpatient programs occur in non-residential settings and consists of more treatment hours per week than traditional programming.
Some of our participants face housing obstacles that can create barriers to recovery. Our intensive outpatient treatment model provides participants the option of sponsored lodging/recovery residence support of up to $550 per month. Our recovery residence partners are located near our IOP counseling centers and follow sober housing best practices.
