Intensive Outpatient Program (Addiction)

Intensive Outpatient Program

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.)

And Wagon’s program is facilitated entirely online, making it a great option for those who don’t have access to support for addiction in your community.

Our IOP is an in-depth, short-term program that provides 10 hours of therapy and support each week.  Those 10 hours are made up of 4 hours of group psycho-education, 3 hours of group therapy, 2 hours of DBT skills group and one individual session per week. Each client will also have use of the Wagon app through the duration of the program.

The 12-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:

  • Education on addiction
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Dialectic Behavioural Therapy
  • Relapse prevention techniques
  • Group therapy sessions
  • Individual therapy sessions
  • Healthy living practices
  • Wagon Recovery Plan
  • Homework

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

Cost: $5000.00 for 3-month program.

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

Group Therapy

Our online group therapy sessions provide you with a chance to connect and process with others in a similar situation.
