IOP for Philadelphia Professionals & Executives

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

  • Do not require medical detoxification or inpatient stabilization
  • Have completed PHP but still need intervention for chemical dependency or co-occurring disorders
  • Demonstrate the discipline and self-control to live independently while pursuing sobriety
  • Need to accommodate an overwhelming professional schedule
Offering Customized Help for Professionals
Elements of Our Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program

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 management
  • Communication techniques
  • Reintegration into the workplace

During the Providence Professionals Program, pilots, lawyers, healthcare providers and other licensed professionals may also participate in acupuncture, nutritional counseling, spiritual direction, biofeedback, neurofeedback, EMDR and community giving-back programs. Facilitated by credentialed addiction professionals and clinicians, these alternative and experiential therapies contribute to holistic healing and sustained recovery.

Benefits of Providence IOP

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 (PPP) 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 assists with reintegration.

Professionals and executives receive the reinforcement they need at Providence’s Philadelphia-area outpatient alcohol rehab. 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.
