Who needs an Intensive Outpatient Program?

An Intensive Outpatient Program, or IOP, is a step down from inpatient care. Usually after a resident completes an inpatient treatment program, they’ll begin an IOP. IOP is a type of outpatient treatment where a patient receives intensive addiction treatment at a facility during the day, but then returns to their place of residence once treatment is complete.

IOPs are often ideal for people needing close monitoring and treatment for a mental health condition. Treating both addiction and psychiatric disorders is called dual diagnosis.

What to expect at Mallard Lake Detox Center

IOPs at Mallard Lake Detox Center are comprehensive and include many treatments. Although each patient’s treatment is personalized, this is what you can expect – all in a luxury, resort-style environment. 


Alcohol and drug addiction education

Treatment begins with educating patients about the effects of alcohol and drugs. People are often not aware how substances affect their body and how addiction works. Substance abuse education helps people learn about their addiction so they can understand how to overcome it.



Individual and group therapy is now part of many outpatient treatment programs. You can expect to attend these sessions throughout the week during treatment. You may also have the option of attending therapy online.



If you have a co-existing condition, such as anxiety, panic attacks, or depression, a doctor may recommend you take medication during outpatient addiction treatment to help alleviate any symptoms that could interfere with your treatment for drug addiction.


Group outings and activities

It’s possible you’ll go on group trips or participate in activities with other patients seeking drug addiction treatment. You may go on a group hike, visit a scenic location, or do other activities as part of a group.
