Health and Wellness

Our suite of innovative health and wellness programs address the full continuum of emotional and physical issues of a resident to improve wellness. This holistic approach ensures each resident has the tools and resources necessary to achieve their personal health and wellness goals.


Intensive Outpatient Therapy

Intensive Outpatient Treatment (also known as IOP for “Intensive Outpatient Program”) is a primary treatment program recommended in some circumstances by a clinical and medical assessment. IOP may be recommended for those who do not need medically-supervised detox. IOP can also enable residents in recovery to continue their recovery therapies following successful detox, on a part-time yet intensive schedule, designed to accommodate work and family life.
