Intensive Outpatient

for Drug & Alcohol Addiction

Intensive Drug Treatment in Providence and at Meadows Edge in North Kingstown

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Continuum is ideal for patients seeking recovery who would benefit from a more structured treatment program on a part-time basis.  The IOP program is designed to accommodate work and family life. An IOP is effective in stabilizing client symptoms, potentially diverting admissions from higher levels of care, and providing clients with an increased skill set and community resources to maintain their recovery. Continuum’s IOP fosters the development of relapse and recovery skills along with coping strategies necessary to manage client’s co-occurring disorders.

The IOP meets three to four times a week for three to four hours each day. Duration of treatment is determined by the patient’s progress.

Services of the Intensive Outpatient Program include:

  • Individual and group therapy
  • Groups on: relapse prevention, recovery skills, stress management and relaxation techniques
  • Medication management
  • 12-Step groups
  • Peer support
  • Therapy for family and concerned persons
  • Medical evaluations
  • Drug testing
  • Communication with the patient’s primary care provider
  • Therapy that addresses co-occurring mental health issues

Effective aftercare planning

Continuum’s expert staff work closely with patients to develop a plan for maintaining the successes gained in the IOP. Aftercare plans include:

  • Transition to outpatient counseling at outpatient services offered at Continuum’s North Kingstown or Providence offices, coordinated between members of both teams to maximize the continuity of care and individualization of treatment
  • Identifying strategies for maintaining sobriety and avoiding relapse
  • Supporting transition back to work or school and rejoining family and friends
