Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

IOP for Professionals & Executives

Combining evidence-based drug and alcohol treatment with the flexibility and affordability of outpatient care, Providence’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) is tailored to the needs of professionals and executives. An intensive three-day-a-week program, Providence IOP is ideal for men and women who:

  • Do not require medical detoxification or inpatient stabilization
  • Have completed PHP but still need intervention for substance use, or co-occurring disorders
  • Demonstrate the discipline and self-control to live independently while pursuing sobriety
  • Need to accommodate a demanding work schedule 

Offering Customized Help for Professionals

How IOP Works

During Providence’s IOP treatment, clients address personal and interpersonal needs in their multi-faceted group therapy sessions. Individual counseling is also available, and sessions may be customized to include spouses or family members. Topics addressed during outpatient rehab include:

  • Mindfulness practices
  • Mood regulation
  • Healthy attachments
  • Boundary development
  • Conflict resolution management
  • Communication and coping strategies
  • Reintegration into the workplace

During the Providence Professionals Program, pilots, lawyers, healthcare providers and other licensed professionals may also participate in EMDR therapy, spiritual direction, biofeedback, neurofeedback and spiritual growth.  Facilitated by credentialed addiction professionals and clinicians, these alternative and experiential therapies contribute to both healing and a sustained recovery.  

Why IOP Works

As professionals and high-level executives, Providence clients face unique challenges that include license suspension, legal restrictions, or even termination. In some cases, program participants are unable to take a lengthy leave of absence due to family and financial responsibilities, making outpatient treatment an attractive, accommodating option. The Providence Professionals Program is designed with the high-profile population in mind. With the utmost care and discretion, our team interfaces with licensing boards, reports your progress to employers, makes recommendations for occupational re-entry, and also assists with reintegration.

Professionals and executives receive the reinforcement they need at Providence’s outpatient addiction rehabilitation. In a welcoming, confidential environment, men and women obtain the knowledge and tools to pursue sustained recovery and return to work with requisite skills and enhanced well-being. Following PHP or IOP completion, clients leave our program with a comprehensive aftercare and relapse prevention plan that may include sober living, profession-specific support groups, and continued group or individual therapy.
