Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) 

Working forward together to maintain sobriety

ASAM Level 2.1 Intensive Outpatient Services (IOP)  as defined in 12VAC30-130-5090 are a structured program of skilled treatment services for adults, children and adolescents. IOP service delivery requires a minimum of 3 service hours per service day to achieve 9 to 19 hours of services per week for adults and 6 to 19 hours of services per week for children and adolescents.


Services can also be provided on the weekend and those hours are part of the weekly hours as long as they do not exceed the maximum hours. This service is provided to members who do not require the intensive level of care of inpatient, residential, or partial hospitalization services, but requires more intensive services than outpatient services. We are “Co-Occurring Enhanced” so we can accept individuals with psychiatric conditions.

Paying For This Service
