Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are designed to treat drug and alcohol misuse while allowing recovering individuals to live independently: at home or in sober communities. If you’ve recently completed a residential rehab program, IOP provides a gentler reintroduction into a sober lifestyle.

With IOP, you’ll receive the intensive monitoring and counseling you need to stay clean during this critical transition period. Our IOP curriculum includes weekly individual and group therapy sessions, as well as supportive activities like yoga, equine therapy and other complementary modalities.

Choosing the Right IOP

As you research treatment options for yourself or someone you love, consider factors like location, scheduling flexibility, staff qualifications and the ability to choose a program that meets your unique needs. If you feel comfortable and confident in your choice, you are more likely to succeed in completing the program and achieving sustained sobriety.

Appealing features of Florida IOP treatment facilities might include:

  • Age-specific programs: Clients in recovery face different challenges at different life stages. A teenager getting ready to apply for college has different concerns than a parent managing a full-time job or an older adult adjusting to retirement. Age-specific programs teach clients to meet these lifestyle challenges while maintaining recovery.
  • Gender-specific programs: Most people prefer to discuss sensitive issues like disordered eating or sexual trauma in a same-sex therapy environment. Guardian’s gender-specific groups also address the physical, social and emotional effects of addiction experienced by men versus women.
  • Life skills training: For young adults or those who’ve struggled with addiction for many years, a vital part of getting sober involves developing the skills to live independently. Life-skills groups educate clients about practical topics, such as preparing nutritious foods, being successful at work and maintaining healthy relationships with loved ones.
