Intensive Outpatient Program

Intensive Outpatient program (IOP)

Treatment for substance use disorder is often divided into two categories: residential recovery programs and outpatient recovery programs. However, there is also a middle ground with The Haven’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). We developed this program to provide a higher level of care than traditional outpatient programs while offering a potential alternative to full residential treatment. Alternatively, the IOP may serve as a stepping stone between residential inpatient care and ongoing outpatient treatment. Here at The Haven, we provide a complete continuum of care for women struggling with substance use disorder. Our intake process will ensure that you enter treatment at the right level of care for your needs.

What does our Intensive Outpatient Program include?

The IOP at The Haven is a 90-day program that includes 16-30 hours of weekly treatment services. These services include at least one hour of individual counselling and 12 hours of group counselling with a licensed, master’s-level therapist weekly. In addition, patients will attend at least 3 hours of recovery-based classes per week. Also included in this program are random drug screenings (as well as screening upon suspicion of substance use), peer navigation and case management support, and medication services.

Classes and therapy groups focus on trauma-informed, clinically-researched strategies for addiction treatment. These account for the real-life needs and challenges of women in recovery. Below is a small sample of our program groups and classes:

Who is the IOP for?

Our Intensive Outpatient Program is intended for women who are struggling with substance use disorder and would benefit from the more structured intervention of this intensive weekly care model. Before entering this program, patients will be evaluated based on American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria and psychosocial assessment to identify whether intensive outpatient care is the most appropriate option. Typically, intensive outpatient recovery is right for individuals who are experiencing a high degree of disruption in their daily lives due to substance use disorder or those who are currently in outpatient care and not making appropriate progress with that program.

What happens after intensive outpatient care?

Following successful completion of the IOP, it is important for patients to have a transitional care plan for ongoing support. Well before the 90-day mark in your treatment, your care coordinator will give you an idea of where you are heading with your ongoing care. Depending on your needs, you will also receive support for securing housing, employment, schooling, or continuing skills education as you transition away from the IOP.

Our outpatient clinic works with all insurance providers, and we maintain more affordable costs than other local treatment facilities for those paying out-of-pocket for their treatment. With centrally located facilities in Tucson, patients can easily reach us by bus. Our clinic also offers plentiful, discreet off-street parking.
