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.

Great program, highly recommend
Guardian is the best choice I have made for myself! The staff is all very caring and genuinely cares about you. The group is very close with each other and we all look out for each other. Couldn't have been a better experience!
The results were excellent. I felt that I was well guided to a life of ongoing sobriety. Initially 12 step programs were brought in for the evening session and this played a significant part in the results for me. Kenny, one of the session leaders, was able to engage in the mechanics and concepts of alcohol recovery that would probably differentiate guardian from other options. - Former Client J.C
I love the group and all the facilitators and counselors. I've been to Rehab this being my 5th time, but first time in IOP. Being here has been extremely helpful and I'm grateful for being a part of this group.
This program is amazing and very helpful. The counselors and group facilitators are awesome. I have learned a lot of tools here that I am using in my everyday life. I personally want to thank all of the staff.
Such a wonderful place! Great groups and individuals. They create a very inclusive environment that fosters comfort and participation. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to grow in terms of recovery and sober network.
They were very friendly and the counselors really went above and beyond with everything. I recommend IOP
I can’t thank Guardian IOP enough for everything they have done for me. From the moment I walked in, Tina and Noel made me feel welcome, comfortable and at home. Throughout the weeks, I learned so much about addiction, recovery and myself. The entire staff is knowledgeable, patient and they genuinely care about each and every person there. They fully invest themselves in you and help guide you every step of the way. It truly feels like a family there. This program has helped me to change and grow into a better person and will forever be grateful for this experience.
This place has been absolutely amazing and has exceeded my expectation. I have received the best help I could’ve asked for.
Great place ... can't say enough about it ... helped me reset life
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!
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 such an amazing experience for me. Words cannot express the gratitude I have for the staff here. Tim, Kim and Tina have been absolutely wonderful. They have treated every single client with dignity and respect, regardless of their stories.I will carry all the tools and materials I have learned and obtained here for the rest of my life! I wish this was not ending for me but I am changing jobs and have to move :(I would 150% recommend this program to anyone seeking sobriety/help. Truly a life changing program and experience!Much love,Peter Araps
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!
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.
