How much time do I need to dedicate to an IOP?
Our IOPs follow an 8, 9, 10 structure. 8 weeks of programming, for 9 hours each week, with 10 additional months of aftercare. On top of the 9 hours of scheduled appointments/meetings per week, you will be expected to complete homework and assignments that will help you along your journey to recovery.
Why do IOPs require so many hours per week?
In order for an IOP to qualify as an intensive program, and to produce the lasting results that our programs achieve, a minimum of 9 hours per week must be dedicated to healing and learning.
What happens after I complete my 8 weeks of programming? Will I receive support after finishing the IOP?
Our IOPs include 10 months of weekly aftercare maintenance groups to support your ongoing wellness. Meet with peers in a counsellor-guided group for two hours each week to discuss progress, difficulties and more. You will also have access to our Wagon app so you can track and document your progress.
Why is homework assigned in my IOP?
Our IOPs are designed to produce lasting results. That means it is important to use the skills you learn and apply them to your real life. Taking the time to ensure that you complete session handouts will help to identify key struggles, triggers, and solutions that work for you.
Do I have to abstain from substance use while in the substance use disorder IOP?
Yes, abstinence is required to participate in our substance use disorder program.
