Intensive Outpatient Program

The Intensive Outpatient (IOP) program is structured program that maintains hours of service for at least 9 hours per week for adults and 6 hours per week for adolescents during which assessment and diagnostic services, and active behavioral health treatment are provided to members who are experiencing moderate signs and symptoms that result in significant personal distress and/or significant psychosocial and environmental issues. While an Intensive Outpatient Program generally maintains 9 hours of service for adults and 6 hours of service for adolescents per week, the frequency of weekly visits provided to a member may lessen as the member nears discharge in order to promote a safe and timely transition between levels of care.
The purpose of IOP services is to monitor and maintain stability, decreasing moderate signs and symptoms, increase functioning, and assist members with integrating into community life.
