What You Can Expect in Our IOP

Our drug and alcohol IOP offers clients in recovery the ability to work on their sobriety while reintegrating back into their community. An integral part of our chemical dependency IOP are random, frequent drug screens to ensure that each client in the program is fully committed to sobriety.

You’ll work with a psychiatrist while in this treatment program to ensure your medications are adequately managed and at the correct dosage, in the event you are on medication to treat any co-occurring disorders.
