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 person to continue to work and stay at home while getting evidence-based treatment!

When it comes to addiction, no two patients are alike.
