Intensive Out Patient (IOP)

For those struggling with severe substance abuse disorders including drugs or alcohol, our Intensive Outpatient Program for substance use disorders (IOP) can help. 


Alcohol and drug treatment and aftercare services are provided in a non-residential setting.

Our Intensive Outpatient Program for substance abuse includes the following services:

One-on-One Counseling

One-on-one counseling takes place at some IOP sessions. This gives the patient an opportunity to discuss topics confidentially with their counselor.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is conducted during each IOP session. It is designed to use the support of fellow group members to address the patient’s problems.

Educational Components

Educational components cover topics such as relapse triggers, recovery, addiction, anger management, wellness activities, and more.


Follow-up care will be provided to all patients once their IOP is completed.

Supportive Education and Involvement

Signature Health encourages the involvement and education of outside support, such as family members or friends.
