Intensive Outpatient Program

Your luxury IOP Chicago treatment center

The Intensive Outpatient Program is a key step in long-term recovery. Therapies and treatments are provided at the CRC Center in Chicago, but patients are able to live in their homes during the duration of treatment with access to work and family. Whether patients are receiving treatment from addiction and substance abuse, mental illness, disordered eating, alcoholism, or depression, Intensive Outpatient at CRC provides each individual with the highest level of care.

What is an Intensive Outpatient Program?

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a primary treatment program for those who do not need a medically-supervised detox. IOP therapies and treatments typically take place 3 to 5 times per week for 3 to 5 hours each day. Most clients participate in the program for 1 to 2 months, depending on their specific needs.

An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) with CRC is an effective mental health treatment program for both young adults and adults. IOP can treat substance abuse and co-occurring mental health conditions. These can include (but are not limited to) depression, anxiety, and bi-polar 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 outpatient treatment, clients learn how to identify specific triggers, build appropriate coping skills and problem-solving skills, and they learn how to improve their self-awareness while recognizing unhealthy behaviors.

Outpatient Services: What is the Purpose of IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program)?

The purpose of an Intensive Outpatient Program is to help individuals incorporate healthy routines into their daily lives through outpatient treatment. Since IOP is an outpatient program, individuals are able to live in their home while receiving treatments and attending therapy sessions. With the CRC Chicago IOP treatment, clients participate in both individual and group therapy, including family therapy. We also provide specific modern therapies that are evidence-based and take a whole-person approach to treatment, rather than treating a symptom.

Are IOP Treatments Effective as Outpatient Services?

Yes, IOP treatments are known to be highly-effective when evidence-based treatment modalities are incorporated into the treatment and wellness plan. Learn more about our outpatient treatment and unique approach to recovery and wellness.

Drug Detox Chicago: What Happens During Detox?

When substances are consumed, there are specific toxins that are also consumed that have a negative impact on our overall health and inhibit our body’s ability to function. During detox, the body is getting these toxins out of the system. As a client, when you utilize the outpatient detox services with CRC, our licensed medical staff arrive at your home to help you stay comfortable and safe during the physical withdrawal of symptoms. This includes continuously monitoring your vitals and also providing you with IV therapy so that your body can receive the essential nutrients it needs to stay healthy during the detox.
