Our Intensive Outpatient Program at The Nextep includes a daily schedule that begins at 9:00 am and ends around 12:00 pm. Clients will attend morning group therapy sessions, process groups, individual therapy and experiential therapy sessions. IOP is used as a level of care that is below Partial Hospitalization, but above regular Outpatient. Where a PHP program would provide more therapeutic hours, IOP offers approximately half the amount of hours of therapy – but coupled with the opportunity for the individual to live away from the clinical offices. Often times the client will live in a structured recovery residence while attending IOP. This type of care provides for a very affordable and effective treatment plan for most clients who are on the path to step down in levels of care.
