Intensive Outpatient Treatment

Intensive Outpatient Program: An affordable and effective option to inpatient treatment!

IOPs are equally effective when compared with inpatient and residential treatments.
IOPs have emerged as a critical facet of 21st century addiction treatment for people
who need a more intensive level of service than usual outpatient treatment,
and they allow participants to…step down successfully from inpatient services.

Not everyone can leave their homes and jobs for a residential addiction treatment facility. But it doesn’t mean that help isn’t available. For them, EHN Canada’s Outpatient facilities offers an in-depth, short-term outpatient program that meets the needs of the individual and sets them on the journey to recovery. Consisting of a consultation and two phases, the program also includes education on:

  • Addiction
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Relapse prevention techniques
  • Group therapy sessions
  • Anxiety management techniques
  • Healthy living practices
  • Assessments
  • Recovery Plan
  • Family involvement and education
  • Homework / Outside support
  • Recovery meetings

A continuous enrollment process for this program allows clients to immediately register for this intensive program any time after their consultation with one of our clinicians.

IOP is a 12-week evening program that allows the patient to stay at home while receiving evidence-based treatment!

What are the benefits?

  • 90% of clients stay sober during the 12 week program
  • Continue to work or go to school
  • Regular drug testing to ensure abstinence
  • Practice recovery skills in real time
  • Immediate intake
  • Individual counselling
  • Financing available

When it comes to addiction, no two patients are alike. IOP is ideal for individuals that are wishing to know more about their substance use, or for those that have had a relapse and wish to get back on track or for the person graduating out of an inpatient situation and require additional support transitioning back into the real world.

Our outpatient clinics are located in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver,  Nanaimo, and coming soon to Whiterock.
