What is IOP Northbrook?

IOP is one of our treatment programs that benefit individuals who need moderate substance abuse support. This type of treatment runs 3 times a week and can last anywhere between 3 and 5 hours. Individuals will participate in an IOP for up to 2 months, but this depends on their personal needs.


IOP with CRC is an effective treatment program for both young adults and adults. IOP can treat substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health conditions. These can include but are not limited to, depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. The specific approach of IOP is completely customized to the needs of each client, with the overall goal being to help each individual reach long-lasting recovery and wellness through a variety of evidence-based modern and traditional therapies.


During IOP treatment, clients learn how to identify specific triggers, build appropriate coping and problem-solving skills, and learn how to improve their self-awareness while recognizing unhealthy behaviors.
