Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) – Coming Summer 2017

Haven’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is specifically designed for men and women 25 and older who are in need of more rigorous treatment than weekly therapy, but who do not require inpatient services. Patients will participate in group therapy, individual therapy and will be provided with medication management.  The IOP meets three days per week for three hours. The days vary to accommodate individuals who may work during the week and includes an evening and weekend schedule.

Haven’s IOP is staffed by independently licensed social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists and nurse practitioners with a Registered Nurse (RN) on call.  The IOP is comprised of two tracks specializing in programming for patients with primary psychiatric illness, as well as those with substance abuse/addiction disorders:  Behavioral Health IOP and Substance Abuse IOP.

Behavioral Health IOP

The Behavioral Health IOP is for individuals who are not successful in outpatient therapy and need ongoing psychotherapy and psychoeducation in an intensive therapeutic setting.

Substance Abuse IOP

The Substance Abuse IOP is for Individuals who have completed detox (when necessary), residential and/or inpatient treatment, but need additional therapeutic support.

IOP works around an individual’s existing schedule.  Patients can continue to work or go to school while receiving treatment.  IOP provides intensive treatment that allows access to physicians, counselors and other medical specialists, as well as group and individual counseling and educational services.  IOP typically lasts three hours per day three times per week and allows the client to return to their homes, jobs and lives.
