Alchemy’s Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) program is designed to provide individuals with more intensive therapy while allowing them to maintain their everyday life obligations. It is a more cost-effective alternative to inpatient treatment yet still provides some of the same core components of an inpatient program such as individual and group therapy, education about addiction, and relapse prevention. Our IOP enables a client in the early stages of recovery to establish a foundation for long-term recovery support in their local community right from the start of treatment. IOP is a 9 week program based on an individualized treatment plan typically consisting of:
- Group sessions
- Individual sessions
- Family STAR (Supportive Team Assisting Recovery) Program
- 12-step recovery and other recovery support groups
- Structured Peer Support
- Complete Medical Lab Evaluation
- Random Urine drug screens
- Integrated Evaluation and Management with Doctors that are Fellowship trained and Board Certified in the Treatment of Addiction
- Integrated Medical Psychiatric Care

Why Continue to Do this To Yourself and Your Family?
Outpatient Care Works
Outpatient care works for many reasons. One is that we know you have responsibilities that need you. Whether it is taking care of your family or going to work/school, we understand that your life doesn’t stop while you are getting help.
IOP is a structured program where clients (adults) receive information and instruction on how to lead a substance-free lifestyle and support to achieve and maintain abstinence. Clients live at home and travel to their local Alchemy location where they participate in treatment. The program provides assessment and primary treatment services and may be recommended for individuals who are currently enrolled in our Ambulatory Detoxification program, do not require detoxification, or individuals who may have completed a residential treatment program and are looking for additional support in their early recovery.
We accept referrals from community agencies, behavioral healthcare professionals, court-related agencies, physicians, or any other agency. Persons referred from these sources must meet admission criteria and demonstrate a desire for treatment.
