Practical Recovery offers a full range of outpatient addiction treatment, including Individual Outpatient Therapy, an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), and a special Individual Intensive Outpatient Program (IIOP). All of these outpatient services permit greater flexibility and independence than residential rehab.

Outpatient Treatment Team and Services

Our outpatient treatment team consists of exceptionally qualified, mostly doctoral level clinicians who have worked together for over a decade. We collaborate with you to provide individualized treatment that fits your particular resources and situation as described below:

Individual Outpatient Therapy for addictions is simply one-on-one sessions. Many individuals prefer the privacy and focus of individual therapy. You can choose the most suitable therapist and schedule for your goals.

Individual Intensive Outpatient (IIOP) This approach is for those who prefer or need the intensity of rehab without the restrictions. The therapists of your choice work together as a treatment team.   In addition to the individual sessions, an optional variety of holistic therapies, couples and family support can be added if preferred.

Group Intensive Outpatient (Group IOP)  Working with you, we develop a customized, structured treatment plan through primarily group therapy. Individual therapy sessions, optional holistic therapies, couples therapy and family support can be included.

We offer a day track group that meets M/T/TH from 9:00am-12:00pm and an evening track that meets M/T/TH from 6:00pm-9:00pm. Both tracks include one individual session per week, in addition to the groups.
