Intensive Outpatient Level of Care

Program Description

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) services are provided by Turning Winds to help clients who are ready for a less demanding therapeutic schedule. IOP is generally done for 3-4 hours during daytime or evening hours, depending on the needs of the client and his/her family. Our outpatient services primarily serve as supportive, follow-up care that includes individual, family and group therapy as part of the recovery plan.

Our Intensive Outpatient sessions are geared primarily towards helping clients develop relapse prevention skills, and teaching them other useful coping skills through a series of successful therapeutic models, depending on each person’s needs. The level and length of care of our IOP program differs from client to client but is a powerful step in their transition from long-term treatment to the potential challenges of everyday life.

The focus of the program is on assisting the client and his/her family in maintaining the changes established during treatment, continuing a stable pattern of living through continuing intervention and education.

Treatment is always administered by medical and mental health care professionals who are both licensed and experienced in the duties they are fulfilling. At Turning Winds, we have seen over time the powerful role that an Intensive Outpatient plan can do to help individuals returning to normal life. It is a critical piece to the process they are working so hard to get through.
