Intensive Outpatient Program or “IOP” is the phase of recovery therapy that immediately follows successful drug or alcohol detox. While in IOP, clients start rebuilding ties with family and community while learning new life skills and coping strategies. This is a crucial step in the foundation of long-term recovery from addiction.
There are many different types of IOP sessions during this phase of treatment. Each session is led by a licensed mental health professional and is specifically designed for each client. Individual therapy and group therapy sessions are pivotal parts of IOP. Weekly individual counseling focuses on personal histories and patterns of behavior. Group therapy sessions are 5 times a week and focus on various issues such as self-esteem, managing urges, and cravings, or relapse prevention. Family therapy is also available for those who want it. Here healing can begin as family relationships improve.
This place is amazing. I have found a place where I belong here at Ventura Recovery Center. They have really taught me how to live. I could not do this without the support I got here.

Common goals with the people in IOP make for strong social bonds. Lifelong friendships are forged.
