Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)

Windsor Laurelwood offers mental health and substance abuse IOP programs that are highly structured group therapy sessions made for individuals struggling with mental health and/or substance abuse issues. Individuals referred to IOP experience significant symptoms that impair their daily lives. IOP allows the individual to be able to maintain work, school and family obligations. Program elements include group therapy, education on the disease process and random drug screening (CD only). Intensive outpatient meets three times per week for six weeks.

The outpatient nature of the program allows for flexible scheduling, and patients may attend work, school or other daily responsibilities while receiving treatment
