Intensive Outpatient Program

Imagine Recovery’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a great step towards creating the life you want to live. The program is designed to serve adults 18 and older who seek recovery from substance misuse and abuse. Our clinical staff consists of experienced and licensed Masters level clinicians trained to address co-occurring mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and more. 

Imagine offers Day IOP Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10:00am-1:00pm. Each client is assigned a primary therapist upon admission and receives a one-hour individual session once per week. Family and couples sessions are available as well.

Clients participate in a 10-week program designed to establish comfort in an abstinence-centered lifestyle that facilitates self-exploration, self-awareness, joy, and confidence in maintaining long-term recovery. We incorporate music, art, gardening, food health and physical wellness exploration at Imagine. Families are a very important part of our program; they are welcome and encouraged to participate in our education and processing-based Family Group.

Recovery Skills

We understand the challenges of staying sober.  In early recovery, clients frequently experience triggers and intense cravings to use despite their motivation to abstain from alcohol and other drugs. At Imagine, clients learn basic recovery skills that can be practiced immediately to prevent relapse and make sobriety more enjoyable. OP clients acquire Stage II recovery skills. 


Process Groups

Self-love, acceptance, healthy relationships and wellness are essential to a fulfilling life. Clients learn positive coping techniques to accept and experience feelings, develop self-esteem and emotional resilience, identify personal strengths, set boundaries, and establish effective communication skills.


Clients are educated in the importance of nutrition and how healthy living enhances recovery.
