Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in Ohio

What Is an Intensive Outpatient Program?

The intensive outpatient program (IOP) at The Recovery Village Columbus helps clients transition from living onsite at the facility to living on their own in the community. In an IOP, clients receive several hours of addiction rehab therapies each week to address the emotional and mental impacts of addiction and co-occurring disorders.

Is intensive outpatient care right for me?

If these apply to you, attending our IOP for addiction treatment could be the next step.

  • I’ve completed inpatient care or a PHP and want additional support
  • I’m fully committed to my recovery and want to develop more skills
  • I need more treatment hours than traditional outpatient rehab offers
  • I’ve got a strong support system I can rely on at home

What to Expect In Our IOP

It can take more than an acute treatment program or hospitalization to heal from substance abuse. Our IOP offers comprehensive daytime therapy to prepare you for life in recovery.

IOP patients participate in at least nine hours of therapy each week. You’ll meet with medical professionals, work through one-on-one sessions with your therapist, and attend skills-based group therapy sessions focused on developing strategies for everyday sober living.
