Intensive Outpatient Therapy vs Outpatient Therapy
Both intensive outpatient therapy (IOP) and outpatient therapy (OT) has the singular goal of supporting substance use disorder recovery. IOP is a more intensive, concentrated, and comprehensive level of care and support for those who need it.
The American Society for Addiction Medicine (ASAM) defines the minimum level of care for an IOP program to be 9 hours per week for up to 90 days. There will be a greater number of sessions than standard outpatient therapy to give more time to therapists and counselors and a greater number of group sessions for community support.

The Epiphany Wellness Intensive Outpatient Program Process
Each patient’s journey is different, and it may be required to complete an inpatient or partial hospitalization program before beginning IOP.
IOP is the ideal solution when you have family and career obligations. The flexibility it offers can be the lifeline you need to continue your recovery while still showing up for those you care about.
After the IOP program is completed, it doesn’t mean the care is done. The nature of substance use disorders is the trajectory of relapse. This can be a disheartening and dangerous setback.
To decrease that risk, a long-term aftercare plan will be developed and implemented to promote relapse prevention.
What To Expect At Our Intensive Outpatient Program
Diagnoses range from mild and moderate to severe. Depending on the results, a treatment plan is prescribed. If your diagnosis is determined to be mild or moderate, an IOP program would be the first step to beginning recovery.
IOP is also the recommended course of action for anyone suffering from co-occurring conditions, such as anxiety or depression, a serious health complication, in addition to substance use disorder.
Innovative + Proven Modalities
As an intensive outpatient program in NJ, we use many different successful and unique addiction treatment models that treat dual diagnosis conditions.
Our intensive outpatient therapy program will be at least 9 hours per week for at least 90 days after the patient has completed drug & alcohol detox.

During the IOP program, patients will have the freedom to live at home while still regularly attending therapy during the day.
