Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are meant for individuals that need more than early intervention or general outpatient care but don’t necessarily need the medical detox or 24-hour supervision during their recovery.

Individuals that benefit from IOP are often suffering from co-occurring disorders. These individuals will typically live at home and commute to the treatment center.

More than 10 percent of individuals receiving treatment for addiction is treated through intensive outpatient programs. How do you know if you or a loved one would benefit from an intensive outpatient program?

Let’s talk about the different Intensive Outpatient Programs that New Road’s in Cottonwood Heights, Utah offers:

The PaTH Outpatient Program

The Pathways To Healing program provides IOP programming at the Cottonwood office in Cottonwood Heights, Utah.  Three-hour groups are offered three nights week. The weekly groups consist of:

  1. General psychotherapy group
  2. DBT skills group
  3. Relapse prevention group

In the New Road’s Intensive Outpatient Programs, clients meet with therapists weekly at the Cottonwood office. They also can meet with case managers to review skills.

PaTH provides 24 different life skills manuals to help young adults acquire the life skills they will need to effectively manage their lives.  

The skill manuals address budgeting, renting, managing medications, utilizing public transportation, etc. Thus, clients are more prepared to effectively conduct their daily lives, which decreases anxiety, thereby reducing the risk of relapse.

New Roads offers psychiatric care to its PaTH clients at Cottonwood.

New Roads also offers MAT, including Suboxone, Indivior, Vivitrol, Oral Naltrexone, etc.  Some of these medications can be used to ease the discomfort of detoxification, increasing the likelihood of patient retention.

Family is also strongly integrated since most clients in this age group are still heavily reliant upon family support.  A two-day family intensive is offered about every six weeks.

Just like the Residential program, New Roads uniquely offers mindfulness-based SUD treatment at Cottonwood.  Staff members are trained in Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement (MORE), which is a proven SUD treatment approach developed at the University of Utah.
