Intensive Outpatient Program in NJ
IOP, also referred to as Intensive Outpatient, is a step down from Partial care and it is designed to help people stay on their path to recovery while living their daily life. They may be coming off of alcohol, anesthetics, benzodiazepines or opiates. After their withdrawal symptoms and craving have been effectively managed in the detoxification and Partial Care phases of treatment, they are usually ready for this level of care.
The Intensive Outpatient program runs from 6AM-9PM on weekdays, usually three times a week. The program includes intensive therapy and medication management. Apart from medication management for substance abuse (buprenorphine, Naltrexone, etc.), medication for co-occurring mental health issues is also prescribed. The focus is on relapse prevention, coping skills and preparing the client for step-down to a lower level of care such as outpatient therapy.
CNT steps down individuals after detoxification and Partial Care levels of care to IOP, but also accepts direct admits from other providers and facilities. Oftentimes inpatient treatment providers are seeking treatment providers that can provide IOP programs closer to the client’s home as a purely outpatient program. While some providers provide this level of care with a residential component, it is more effective to obtain this level of care on an outpatient basis, as the client’s home environment can be integrated into treatment. This helps deliver better outcomes.
CNT is in-network for this level of care with most major private health insurance providers: Aetna, AmeriHealth, Anthem BCBS, Beacon Health Options, Cigna, Emblem GHI (with QualCare logo), Empire BCBS, GHI Commercial, Horizon BCBS (EPO, HMO, PPO), Humana (with QualCare logo), United Health Care, Oscar, and QualCare.
