Helping You Achieve Lasting Recovery

Intensive Outpatient Program

Akua’s approach to recovery is tailored to each individual, ensuring that no two journeys are the same. Our commitment to meeting the unique needs of our clients sets us apart, providing a solid foundation for successful rehabilitation. Outpatient is designed to avoid the rigorous structure of 24/7 daily monitoring to a suitable and flexible weekly schedule. Individuals receive group and individual therapy as they attend school or return to the workforce; all while, providing them with structure and accountability which includes Urine Drug Screen (UDS).

Our recovery program includes interactive group sessions, individual sessions, mindfulness-based relapse prevention groups, and alternative treatment-based groups that assist clients in obtaining coping skills to manage triggers and symptoms to enjoy life.

AKUA works diligently with each client and their family to ensure that the treatment plan is specifically tailored to their needs, and not just their disorder.

Frequently Asked Questions

Intensive outpatient treatment requires individuals to obtain at least nine hours of group and/or individual therapy per week, divided up into three-hour sessions, three to five days a week.

IOP is suitable for individuals who:

  • Are functioning well independently in society
  • Have a stable home life
  • Have a support network
  • Are able to maintain their sobriety on their own

Individuals in IOP treatment usually will have successfully completed a more intensive treatment program such as residential treatment (RTC) or partial hospitalization (PHP). Some individuals may use IOP as their primary therapy program. However, all individuals entering IOP must have successfully completed a detox program, have a strong support system, and reliable transportation, and must not be at risk of self-harm or threatening harm to others in order to be enrolled in intensive outpatient treatment.

Intensive Outpatient Rehab provides more structure and a more intensive level of care than a standard outpatient program, while still accommodating the individual’s home and work life.

Standard outpatient treatment is considered part of the maintenance phase in recovery as individuals can attend individual and group sessions on a weekly or bi-weekly basis and will most often continue for six months or more.
