In today’s fast-paced world, balancing personal growth and professional responsibilities is a challenge, especially for those seeking support in addiction recovery. Our Evening Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) bridges this gap, offering a comprehensive treatment solution tailored for individuals who cannot afford to step away from their daily commitments for recovery. 

Meeting from 5:30 to 8:30 pm, our program provides the same robust, evidence-based care as traditional IOPs but is designed to accommodate the unique needs of working professionals, students, and anyone who requires flexibility without compromising the quality of their recovery journey.

What is an Evening IOP?

Our Evening IOP is a specialized outpatient program that provides structured addiction treatment services during evening hours, catering specifically to those with daytime obligations such as work, school, or family care.

This program is ideal for individuals transitioning from inpatient treatment or those seeking initial treatment without disrupting their daily lives. It combines the intensity and comprehensive nature of an inpatient program with the flexibility required by today’s professionals and students.

Evidence-Based Treatment: Our program includes a variety of therapeutic approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness practices, and more, tailored to support individual recovery paths.

Comprehensive Care: Beyond addiction treatment, our program addresses related areas such as emotional regulation, stress management, and life skills, preparing clients for a balanced and fulfilling life post-treatment.

Embrace Recovery Without Pausing Your Life

In our fast-paced world, taking a break from one’s career, education, or family responsibilities is not always feasible or desirable. Recognizing this, our Evening Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is specifically designed to integrate seamlessly into your busy schedule, ensuring that your journey toward recovery doesn’t mean putting the rest of your life on hold.

Balanced Treatment Approach

Our Evening IOP strikes the perfect balance between providing an intensive level of care and respecting your commitments to work, school, and family. You don’t have to compromise on the quality of your treatment because of your busy schedule. Our evening sessions are structured to ensure you receive comprehensive care, including therapy, skills training, and support, all tailored to fit into your evening hours.

Continuity of Life and Recovery

We believe that recovery should complement your life, not complicate it. By participating in our Evening IOP, you maintain the continuity of your daily activities while embarking on a transformative journey of recovery. This approach not only reduces the stress associated with taking time off but also empowers you to apply what you learn in real time, enhancing the integration of recovery principles into your daily life.

Support in Your Environment

Engaging in treatment during the evening allows you to stay connected with your support networks — be it family, friends, or colleagues. This connectivity is crucial, as it ensures you don’t have to navigate your recovery journey in isolation. Our program encourages the building of new support systems within the group while also valuing the importance of existing relationships in your life.

Practical Application of Recovery Skills

Our Evening IOP offers the unique advantage of immediate application of recovery skills and strategies in your real-world environment. Each session equips you with tools and insights that you can apply the very next day, allowing for real-time feedback and adjustment. This practical aspect of learning and growth is invaluable, as it reinforces your coping mechanisms and resilience in the face of daily challenges.

A Sustainable Path to Recovery

We understand that recovery is a marathon, not a sprint. Our Evening IOP is designed not just for the short term but as a foundational step in a sustainable, long-term recovery journey. By integrating treatment into your everyday life, we help you build a robust framework for living that supports sobriety, well-being, and fulfillment beyond the program’s duration.
