Helping Navigate The Challenges of Early Recovery

Guardian Intensive Outpatient Program is part of the Guardian Recovery Network (GRN), a leader in substance use disorder treatment with two decades of experience providing a full continuum of care for clients and their families throughout the recovery process.

Guardian Intensive Outpatient Program offers innovative treatment options for clients across the United States who do not require residential care and for those in need of continuing care following completion of inpatient treatment. Our program was designed by a team of professionals with years of experience in the field of substance abuse and mental health.

Guardian IOP utilizes a combination of evidence-based practices and holistic methods to provide an individualized recovery experience that is tailored to each patient’s unique situation. The disease of chemical dependency can strike anyone, regardless of age, gender, education, or socioeconomic status. Guardian Intensive Outpatient Program is here to help people redirect themselves out of that negative trajectory and successfully enter a new life free from addiction.

The Guardian IOP Approach

If you or a loved one is suffering from drug & alcohol addiction and searching for an intensive outpatient program, don’t wait any longer. The Guardian Intensive Outpatient Program is here to help you throughout your journey of recovery. We are committed to supporting our clients as they navigate through early sobriety and learn the necessary skills needed to live a long, drug-free life. Guardian Intensive Outpatient Program provides comprehensive, integrated outpatient addiction recovery services to men and women seeking aftercare solutions. Our goal is to build community through clinically-excellent outpatient programming for individuals and their families to establish long-term recovery.

We specialize in providing community-centric, individualized treatment for each of our clients, with highly specialized programming for men, women, older adults and younger adults. Each IOP treatment plan is designed to meet the needs of clients from all walks of life, from the young adult transitioning out of residential treatment to the busy working professional and parent struggling with burnout.

Our program is intensive by nature and structured in a way that challenges our clients to become fully invested in their recovery while experiencing the increased freedom of an outpatient level of care. While we spend a significant amount time focusing on healing, we also spend time planning for the future–life after treatment. Each client is assigned an experienced, compassionate case manager who designs a logical, sustainable plan for aftercare that helps the client build upon their achievements thus far. While we are proud of all the work we do, we know our clinical aftercare program is really what sets us apart.

Guardian of New Brunswick was a life changing experience. The staff was welcoming, knowledgeable, caring, and were instrumental in my recovery. I don’t think I would be sober today if it was not for them. They even used their personal time to make sure my recovery was a top priority. They are like family! If you are thinking you may need help, you probably do. Make this IOP the place where you learn to love yourself and finally take back your life!

Being a work professional I was concerned about entering a treatment center for my addiction. I knew I needed more help than a weekly session, but couldn’t go away to detox with my job. I have to say that this place checked all the boxes for me. This center combines group sessions with individual attention. It was really empowering and eye opening to speak with people like me. The people here really care! I absolutely would recommend.

I came here about four months ago after trying to get sober for a year on my own. It has been very helpful and the counselors genuinely care here. I have had a great experience, and would recommend coming here to anyone who has a problem.

Guardian IOP Has been the best experience I’ve ever experienced by far. Not only is Counselor Christina Wittkop a wonderful counselor, but she is undoubtedly one of the most patient, caring and most sensitive individuals I ever had the pleasure of meeting and working with. She is truly an example of a Counselor who does not do this job for just for the paycheck. She works tirelessly to help clients who come to this program in crisis and makes sure that they leave READY!!! The reason I know this is because I will be graduating the program on Thursday and I am better for it . I would recommend this program to anyone who is looking to get their life back on track!

I had the pleasure of working at Guardian Recovery Network for almost 2 years. The passion and commitment from ownership and upper level management has a trickle-down affect to the clinicians and the support staff. I personally know countless individuals who came to GRN looking for help, and they were provided with a solid foundation that helped them obtain long-term sobriety. If you or a loved one are looking for a program that can educate you, provide you with copings skills, and help you find change your life then I strongly recommend giving the folks at Guardian a call.
Great caring facility. The staff care about each person individually and are making such a difference in our community.

Today I met with the Program Director, Mike Freundlich of Guardian Recovery Network at their Delray Beach, FL offices. The Outpatient and Immersion Program is considerably impressive!! Their offices are clean, bright and beautiful. The people are friendly and the program appears to be one of the very best in the area. After a tour of their offices and a thorough explanation of how successful the program has been so far, I wouldn't hesitate to send clients who need help with substance abuse to Guardian Recovery Network to engage in one of their many programs! It's good to know there are wonderful places like this one to use as a referral source in the world of counseling.

Guardian IOP is full of caring, ethical, friendly, intelligent, and professional staff. They can relate to their patients and actually care about them and their families. They have an effective structure and plan customized for each patient to achieve long-term sobriety and begin a life beyond their wildest dreams! I would reccomend any and everyone struggling with the disease of addiction to Guardian IOP. State of the art housing and facilities, including top notch individual and group care provided by their All-Star staff, make them one of my first options to present to clients.

Spent 2 months in the IOP program and gained more there then my previous (6) programs elsewhere combined. Each therapist has a unique approach with extensive knowledge and practical solutions. The staff worked hard in caring for me, I came in slurring my speech and commenced with purpose and hope. Thank you all so very much!!!!

Guardian has worked with numerous mutual clients of ours and done wonders. They give each client the tools to live a happy life in recovery and meet any resistance to recovery well. The competency levels of the clinicians far surpass many in the field that we've dealt with.
