Addiction, being a chronic disease, usually requires ongoing treatment. One way to achieve a strong foundation in early recovery is by taking advantage of these aftercare programs – one of the most common being intensive outpatient programming. After patients complete our PHP level of care, we recommend that they step down into our intensive outpatient program (IOP). Leaving rehab isn’t always easy, but IOP can help ease this transition and provide ongoing support for any challenges that occur in early recovery.
While participating in our IOP program in Jeffersonville, Indiana, patients will receive approximately 15 hours of clinical care and group therapy each week. This means patients will attend therapy sessions several days a week for a few hours at a time. Patients may participate in both group and individual therapy based on their specific needs.
IOP programs are also suitable for people who don’t have the luxury of taking time away from their families, their job, or other obligations in order to attend an inpatient or PHP program. Being flexible, yet intensive, IOP programs enable patients to go about their daily lives and responsibilities while still receiving the substance abuse counseling that they need.
In order to better help people adapt to daily life in sobriety, IOP places a heavy focus on group and community support, life-skills, and relapse prevention. For example, case managers may help IOP clients with job applications or pending legal issues. On the other hand, the counseling provided during IOP therapy sessions helps reinforce the coping skills and behaviors learned during rehab to reduce the risks of relapse.
Lastly, patients who participate in our Indiana IOP drug and alcohol treatment program are encouraged to participate in a 12-step fellowship, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA), while they are in treatment to further support a lasting recovery.

Partial-hospitalization (PHP) is our highest level of care. After individuals complete detox, they will move to a PHP setting where they will participate in 25 hours of intensive group therapy sessions and one hour of individual therapy each week. This level of care aims to help people uncover and heal from the root causes of their addictions.Read More
After completing our PHP program at PAX Riverbend we recommend that patients move down into a lower level of care. During IOP or outpatient rehab, patients will receive between 9-15 hours of clinical care from our licensed therapists. This continued care helps patients stay on the right track in sobriety.Read More
Many people who suffer from drug or alcohol addiction can benefit from medication-assisted treatment (MAT). If you qualify for MAT, you will take FDA-approved medications while participating in a comprehensive treatment program so you can reach a place where you can maintain sobriety on your own.Read More
