Intensive Outpatient Program

Intensive Outpatient Program for Addiction

A Virtual Solution for Those Who Need More Addiction Support

While more severe cases should be treated in a residential facility, an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a great option for those with mild or moderate substance use disorders. It was designed for those who need more support that individual or group therapy alone can provide. It’s a full treatment program that is proven to be as effective as residential treatment for most individuals who need mild or moderate levels of care (Psychiatr Serv. 2014 Jun 1; 65(6): 718–726.)

The EHN Online Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) powered by Wagon is facilitated entirely online, making it a great option for those who don’t have access to support for addiction in their communities.

EHN Online’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is an in-depth, short-term program that provides nine hours of programming per week. This consists of a one hour individual counselling session and the remaining eight hours are evenly split between group therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy skills development, and psychoeducation sessions.

Each patient will also use the EHN Online app powered by Wagon throughout the program for setting recovery goals, tracking progress, and logging daily emotions and triggers.

The 8-week curriculum is designed to give you a thorough understanding of the underlying causes of addiction as well as a variety of skills and techniques for recovery. The program includes:

  • Psychoeducation on addiction
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Dialectic Behavioural Therapy
  • Relapse prevention techniques
  • Group therapy sessions
  • Individual therapy sessions
  • Healthy living practices
  • Support with the Tasks of Daily Living
  • EHN Online Recovery Plan
  • Family Program
  • Homework
  • 10 months of aftercare group meetings following program completion

A continuous enrolment means that you can start the program any time. Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) takes place during the evenings so that you can continue to participate in work and family life while receiving high-quality treatment.

Note: This IOP program is for those with substance use disorders.
