Intensive outpatient therapy provides a higher level of care and attention than can be provided solely in individual and group sessions. IOP at Connections consists of 3 sessions per week of 3 hours per day in the mornings or evenings. The IOP format includes addiction education, family support group, relapse prevention, recovery speakers, social support, art therapy, and experiential therapy. Connections uses the matrix model, an evidenced based program to support long term recovery. IOP may be particularly helpful for individuals returning from residential treatment. Multi-family therapy and experiential therapy components are included in this program.
Connections offers both adult and adolescent IOP (typically teens ages 13-19) classes. Adult classes of IOP are offered both mornings and during the early evening.
Connections Counseling is proud to provide adolescent IOP, a unique service to help adolescents abstain from alcohol and drugs, develop new coping skills and stay in school while living at home. Our staff is passionate about working with teens and their families.
