Intensive Outpatient Program
Intensive Outpatient Programs at Banyan Heartland
Banyan Treatment Center’s Heartland location now offers an off-site intensive outpatient program for individuals in need of continued care and recovery support. Just a short drive from our licensed Gilman residential facility, our off-site IOP in Naperville, IL, serves as a step down from our other higher levels of care, such as our inpatient and partial hospitalization programming. During this phase of treatment, patients will focus on re-entering their community while continuing to strengthen their recovery skills and progress through the rehab process.
What to Expect During Our IOPThe consequences of addiction may transpire over years, even decades, of continued drug and alcohol abuse. Because substance abuse is often a long-term problem, it also requires a long-term solution. Recovery is an ongoing process that requires dedication and effort every step of the way.
The intensive outpatient program is designed to help patients focus on their progress and maintaining their sobriety as they integrate back into society. In a safe and comfortable setting, patients will participate in a therapy for a minimum of 9 hours a week with trained staff members who are specialists in their respective fields. While our IOP programs offers all of the same therapeutic services of other treatment levels, patients are afforded more flexibility to begin branching out and reestablishing themselves in their community.
The intensive outpatient services and programming at our off-site location will focus on:
- Relapse prevention
- Fostering healthy relationships
- Coping techniques for future cravings
- Stress management
- Holistic therapies
- Family therapy
- Life-skills – i.e. resume building, creating a budget, etc.
These programs include both group therapy and individual sessions with their outpatient therapist. Additionally, psychiatric care and medical services are offered, if needed. With a small staff to patient ratio, patients can receive the personalized attention they need to continue to progress in their recovery journey. When patients are not participating in IOP therapy, they are free to attend 12-step meetings, volunteer, and seek employment.
Maintaining Recovery After IOP TreatmentAt Banyan, it is our belief that addiction is not a one-size-fits-all disease. Addiction affects everyone differently, so our treatment model has been designed to address the individual needs of the patient and to guide them through every step of the recovery journey.
Our Illinois intensive outpatient program is intended to prepare patients for everyday life once they leave treatment, but making the transition from rehab to home can be quite overwhelming, especially in the earlier stages of recovery. Just because someone has made the decision to get sober, does not mean that life will no longer have its trials and tribulations. To help support patients after their IOP program has ended, we offer a rehab alumni program that connects all of our successful patients to create a community of support that patients can rely on in recovery. Through this program, we also continue to provide our former patients with resources to help them in their recovery as they strive for lasting-sobriety.
At Banyan Heartland, we want our patients to be successful. To help patients with their recovery journeys, our off-site intensive outpatient program can help bridge the gap between treatment and the real world. If you or a loved one is ready to get sober, contact us today.

"Banyan was able to help me more than words can describe. They helped me save my life. I called in not really knowing what to expect or anything about treatment and the people I spoke with were able to walk me through every step of the way."
