IOP - Intensive Outpatient Program

What is IOP?

An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a treatment option for people who require more support than regular outpatient therapy but do not need round-the-clock supervision. IOP is designed to accommodate the patient’s daily responsibilities like work, school, or family, making it a flexible option for those who need structured treatment while continuing with their daily activities.

How does it work?

IOP typically involves attending therapy sessions several days per week, for multiple hours each day, usually totaling 9 to 20 hours per week. The specific structure can vary, but the focus is on intensive therapy that includes both group and individual sessions.

We tailor our therapy packages to each patient's unique needs, recognizing the importance of individualized treatment paths. This approach involves differentiating therapy types, intensities, and frequencies, ensuring that each patient's therapy is precisely aligned with their specific challenges and progress in dealing with anxiety or OCD. By employing a range of evidence-based techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Exposure and Response Prevention, we ensure that each patient receives a personalized, effective therapeutic experience.
