What is the Difference Between IOP and Fellowship Meetings?

When you are new to sobriety, all the different treatment and maintenance options may sound like the same thing. It is important to know that there are different levels of care and distinctions between different treatment options that could make an enormous difference in a person’s experience in sobriety.

IOP is short for intensive outpatient program, which is often a crucial part of the whole addiction treatment process. IOP provides continued care and direction to those who have recently graduated from inpatient programs. These part-time intensive programs are also often available as a stand-alone treatment program.

IOP usually integrates educational sessions, group therapy, individual therapy and group sessions where topics on and related to addiction are covered.
