What is an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?

admin on January 10, 2017

Addiction is all consuming. It can take over your life before you realize it, but it doesn’t have to be the end. If you or someone you love is addicted to drugs or alcohol, the most important thing to understand is that with the right help addiction can be overcome.

Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) are one of the most powerful forms of addiction recovery that you can undertake. One of the great things about IOP is it doesn’t have to interrupt your life completely. This is a must for patients who need to continue their responsibilities, while still getting the support and care they need. For example, those who have families that depend on them to be there are able to still meet those demands while going through treatment, or who have jobs that they need to maintain.

Some Information About Our IOP

At Simple Path Recovery, our IOP Pompano Beach program is overseen by highly trained professionals who are compassionate and care about you. Our staff is also trained in the most modern methods to help with your addiction.

With our IOP South Florida program you can expect that you will attend a combination of group and individual therapy at least five times per week. This will ensure that you’re getting the fullest level of support.

We feel that by using both individual and group therapy, you’ll learn the skills, methods, and the coping mechanisms you need to live a clean and sober life.


Group therapy is a safe and non-judgmental space for you to express the emotions you’re experiencing and explore the methods that are or aren’t working for you. Often, our clients can learn a great deal from one another, but more than that they really begin to become like a part of your recovery family. In group, you will learn to create and build positive relationships. And the people you work with will want you to succeeded on your journey.

Your time in individual therapy helps you to deeper explore the issues that are driving your addiction. Generally, there are strong emotional or mental issues that are leading you to turn to drugs or alcohol in a dangerous attempt at self-medicating. Your individual therapy sessions will help you to understand these issues, and work through them so that you aren’t tempted to use. Individual therapy will also help you learn the tried and true methods that others have used to overcome their addiction – from coping mechanisms to ways to avoid situations that lead you into temptation.

Regardless of your situation, or your addiction, you know it’s time to get help. We’re here for you – every step of the way. At Simple Path Recovery, we want to assist you in transforming your life. Don’t wait, the time for change is now.
