Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in Atlanta, GA
What is Intensive Outpatient Treatment?
IOP’s are effective methods of treating addiction on an outpatient basis. While the quality of programs ranges a great deal, the top programs have qualified therapists, group therapy, holistic therapy, and an in-depth curriculum designed to educate, heal and develop a support system for those in early recovery from addiction or alcoholism.
Intensive outpatient treatment is typically a lower form of care and is often best for people who have already completed an inpatient program or partial hospitalization. It is also a great treatment option for people with outside responsibilities who cannot commit to more intensive levels of care.
What is an IOP Program at The Summit Like
At The Summit Wellness Group, we provide several different IOP schedules to best accommodate our clients. Clients will attend this addiction treatment track for three hours for three to five days a week. We offer morning, afternoon, and evening sessions to accommodate a wide range of schedules. Our program includes a variety of evidence-based therapies provided in individual, family, and group sessions. Clients may also participate in different holistic options such as chiropractic care, meditation, yoga, or adventure therapy. We work to ensure that even clients participating in fewer hours still receive the highest level of care possible.
Our programs last for three months on average. However, the entire outpatient treatment continuum of care can last six months. Our outpatient rehabs in Atlanta require between 10-30 hours per week, with individual sessions lasting 1-2 hours depending on the type of treatment received.
Benefits of IOP
IOP Therapies Available at The Summit Wellness Group
Individual and group therapies are often the most vital piece of our intensive outpatient program in Atlanta, Georgia. With fewer hours to incorporate treatment, we want to make sure we utilize that time in the most effective way possible. Our programs often include:
You’ll be assigned one of our therapists (Master’s level or above) and meet at least one hour per week. During these one-on-one sessions, you’ll work with them to process underlying trauma and other issues fueling addiction. You’ll also create a personalized recovery plan, deal with ongoing issues related to your personal and professional life, and set aftercare goals.
Each track of our intensive outpatient program features a different assortment of group therapy sessions. These process groups focus on core issues behind addiction, relapse prevention, accountability related to involvement in addiction support groups (12-Step and Non-12-Step), recovery tools, codependency, and more.
Addiction is a disease that affects the entire family. That’s why we have a heavy emphasis on supporting the family. This includes on-site family therapy overseen by your individual therapist, as well as voluntary biweekly night sessions done on a group level.
Our list of holistic rehab modalities offered to clients of our program includes massage, chiropractic care, guided meditation, yoga, adventure therapy, and nutritional classes.

What People Have To Say About The Summit Wellness Group’s Intensive Outpatient Rehab Programs
Our Other Midtown Atlanta Addiction Treatment Programs
Aside from our Intensive Outpatient Program, we have several other treatment options available. Our Partial Hospitalization Program is a more comprehensive level of care and entails around 30 hours per week. This is usually undergone prior to IOP. Once IOP is completed, it is common for clients to step down to Outpatient Treatment. This is often the final step before someone is finished with our program. While they are encouraged to return for aftercare programs, OP is the final step of the official treatment program.
Before someone begins any of our programs, they must be in a medically stable condition. This sometimes requires a stay in a detox center to safely flush the drugs from someone’s system. Even after someone is medically stable, there may be post-acute withdrawal symptoms, and in these cases, it may be advisable to enter an inpatient rehab program. Coupling IOP with a reputable sober living home is also adviseable in many situations. To find out more about the different levels of care in Midtown Atlanta drug rehab, give us a call. We are happy to help you find the safest and most effective option for you.
