What is Harmony Foundation’s Intensive Outpatient Program

An Intensive Outpatient Program is designed for individuals who are interested in abstinence, but whose drinking or drug use behavior may not meet Level 3 ASAM criteria for an residential level of care.

Unlike Residential Treatment, IOP allows you to live at home, work, and engage in your community while building recovery skills. Additionally, IOP increases the frequency of contact with treatment providers and includes 9 hours of programming, spread over 3 days, each week.

IOP is ideal for someone who wants to:

  • Achieve abstinence
  • Foster changes in behavior that supports a recovery lifestyle
  • Facilitate active participation in community-based support groups
  • Identify and address a range of psychosocial problems (including employment, adherence to probation, housing, financial planning, relationships)
  • Develop a positive supportive recovery network
  • Improve problem-solving skills and coping strategies in staying abstinent.
