An intensive outpatient program (IOP) provides comprehensive treatment for addiction while allowing the recovering individual to live at home. These programs require more hours per week in treatment than standard outpatient care. They may also offer a broader range of therapies. Intensive outpatient programs are often used as a step-down from a residential addiction treatment program to help people transition back to everyday life. For individuals who only receive outpatient care, an IOP may give them the extra time they need to heal.

Texas Recovery Center’s intensive outpatient program provides holistic treatment for addiction that gives people hope for a healthier lifestyle.

What to Expect in an Intensive Outpatient Program

Intensive outpatient programs use a variety of evidence-based and experiential therapies to treat addiction. They are often based on behavioral therapy, counseling, and addiction education. 

Types of addiction treatment that may be offered in an intensive outpatient program include:

Why Choose Our Intensive Outpatient Program in Texas?

Many people enter an intensive outpatient program after completing an inpatient rehab program.

It can be a challenge to return home after residential addiction treatment. Our IOP in Texas offers continued support to ease the transition and reduce the chance of relapse. It reinforces what the individual learned in treatment while allowing them to reintegrate into society.

Other reasons that someone may choose an intensive outpatient program include:

  • Cost – Because the intensive outpatient program allows people to live at home, it is less expensive than inpatient care. This makes it more accessible as a standalone treatment option for those who are concerned about cost.
  • Level of care – Some people may begin in a traditional outpatient program and find that they need more care than is provided. Stepping up to an IOP gives them a few more hours per week to gain addiction recovery and relapse prevention tools.
  • Flexibility – People who need to keep their job or other obligations during treatment may prefer the flexibility of an IOP, which could offer the choice of day or evening therapy sessions.
  • Relapse prevention – The intensive outpatient program may be a good choice for someone who has already attended a rehab program and is worried they may relapse. The IOP helps them get back on track and strengthens their relapse prevention tools.


It takes a highly motivated individual to be successful in outpatient addiction treatment. A supportive home environment can also make a difference in recovery success. Some people may find that the intensive outpatient program does not offer an adequate level of care. If a person suffers from chronic relapse, co-occurring disorders, or severe addiction, they may benefit more from around-the-clock care in an inpatient rehab program.
