Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) is a therapeutic and support program to treat addiction and mental health disorders. Intensive Outpatient treatment is provided at a central office location and allows women to continue to take care of personal responsibilities such as work, childcare, etc. It allows women to live at home or in a structured sober living environment while completing treatment in their local community.
Women’s Recovery takes an IOP model, and has built it to be holistic and robust as to meet the needs of women who struggle with addiction, trauma, and other mental health conditions. We aim to be clinically robust and trauma integrated care, which for us makes our gender specific environment important.

Group psychotherapy is broken down into two components, half of the group is a process therapy. Our average group size is 10-12 women with 1-2 trained mental health facilitators. Group process allows clients to receive support and feedback from multiple perspectives, and gain insight into themselves and their patterns they might otherwise not have opportunity to do. The second half of the group is focused on a skill/task/or educational component. It is important to us that women are learning concrete coping skills and things about their mental health, trauma, and addiction that they can continue to use for their lifetime.
Client are paired up with an individual therapist that has specialty in the areas of focus for their treatment. We have therapists trained in various trauma modalities including EMDR, internal family systems, Somatic Experiencing, etc.
Clients participate in family sessions with members of their family that they identify as being important to their treatment process. This can include spouses, parents, siblings, adult children, etc. Family sessions can have a variety of purposes including improving communication, education around illness, conflict resolution, etc.
Case Management focuses on client’s psychosocial health and functioning. Case management can support client in executive functioning and living skills and will be tailored to each individual clients functioning level. This can include time management, social & Recreational development, etc.
Our clients see an addiction psychiatrist for medication management and psychiatric oversight. Our addiction psychiatrist can make recommendations for medications which can support addiction recovery.
We at women’s recovery have created adjunct support and therapeutic services that are also available to our clients. These include weekly yoga, neurofeedback on site, nutrient therapy, in-house 12 step meetings, and a variety of social and recreational activities. These are optional parts of the program and can have a varied additional time commitment.
