Do You Have Questions?


intensive outpatient programsIt’s a dilemma that millions of Americans face every day. They want to get help for substance use, dependency, or addiction to alcohol, heroin or painkillers but can’t take the time off from work or school to enter a rehab facility.

At Symetria Recovery, our team believes that you should not be forced to choose between supporting your family and getting care for the debilitating disease of alcohol, opioid or heroin dependency, use, or addiction. That’s why we designed our innovative and flexible system of intensive outpatient programs. If you are interested in addiction treatment but cannot take time off from work or family responsibilities, then our intensive outpatient treatment programs for alcohol or opioid addiction may be the answer to your needs.

Intensive Outpatient Programs Defined

The intensive outpatient program (IOP) at Symetria is an addiction treatment program that is provided on an outpatient basis. Typically, an IOP requires you to attend multiple sessions that last for a few hours each week to participate in counseling services, relapse prevention education, and recovery support groups.

Intensive outpatient programs are often recommended for people who:

  • Are suffering from a mild or moderate substance use disorder that doesn’t require medically supervised detox and withdrawal management
  • Have already attended inpatient rehab and want a step-down level of care
  • Have daily responsibilities or jobs that they cannot leave

At Symetria Recovery, we collaborate with you to create an individualized treatment plan that has defined goals to measure the progress that is specific to your recovery needs. Our intensive outpatient programs usually meet 9 hours per week, and each session lasts for about two to three hours. Our flexible IOP allows individuals to attend in-person, virtual, and hybrid.

The Main Advantage of Intensive Outpatient Programs

The main advantage of our intensive outpatient programs is that you receive recovery treatment while continuing to live independently at home or in a sober living facility. While receiving intensive outpatient care, you continue to work, attend class, and continue living your life. This flexible, convenient, yet rigorous approach to recovery makes it easier to access care without having to sacrifice a job or degree. Plus, you can apply newly learned skills and behavior in your daily routine.

Under the guidance of our experienced clinical team, you will choose from a range of IOP group therapy options, each of which has been proven effective in treating substance use disorders. Pick the ones that best fit your schedule. Each is designed to address your unique history and needs. To ensure you get the most significant benefit from the program, each session is led by fully licensed clinicians who are specially trained in substance use, dependency, and addiction treatment and recovery.

Additional Benefits of Intensive Outpatient Programs

In addition to the main benefit of flexibility to fit your schedule, the intensive outpatient programs at Symetria Recovery can enhance your quality of life in other ways as well. Additional benefits of our intensive outpatient programs include:

  • Support from our Symetria Recovery team and peers in treatment
  • Structure and discipline of a daily routine
  • More affordable than many inpatient treatment programs
  • Repaired relationships with loved ones
