Outpatient Program (IOP)

ALANA’s IOP (for “Intensive Outpatient Program) is a 3 month primary treatment program for addiction clients. Eligibility for the IOP program is determined by a clinical assessment. Our Intensive Outpatient Program is designed to enable clients to continue their therapeutic treatment after detoxification. Patients will attend three, three hour long groups each week, which are scheduled to minimize interference with work and sober living schedules.


The Intensive Outpatient program primarily utilizes the group therapy process, but clients will continue to meet weekly with their individual therapist throughout the 12 week program. Groups are small and generally do not exceed 10 people, allowing for a safe and constructive therapy environment.
