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 residential facility, our off-site IOP in Naperville, IL, serves as a step down from higher levels of care, such as residential care and partial hospitalization programming. During this phase of treatment, patients will focus on re-entering their community, while maintaining their sobriety and recovery efforts they made throughout the rehab process.
What to Expect During IOP
The consequences of addiction do not manifest overnight. They transpire over years, even decades, of continued drug and alcohol abuse. As such, recovery must be an ongoing process; one which requires willingness and dedication. IOP at Heartland affords patients the opportunity to continue working on themselves with the help of treatment professionals, while taking the necessary steps to rebuild their lives outside of treatment.
Banyan Heartland’s Intensive Outpatient Program is provided in a comfortable setting, where patients are able to focus on customized treatment plans and maintaining their sobriety, as they integrate back into society. Clients will participate in therapy for a minimum of 9 hours a week, which include group therapy, family therapy, and individual sessions with their outpatient therapist. Additionally, psychiatric care and medical services are offered, if needed. Our generous staff to patient ratio allows clients to receive personalized care and individual support throughout the entire IOP experience.
When patients are not participating in therapy, they are free to attend 12-step meetings, volunteer, and seek employment. While IOP offers all of the same therapeutic services, patients are afforded more flexibility to begin branching out and establishing themselves for life after treatment. Some of the services included in Heartland’s off-site IOP include:
- 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.
At Banyan, it is our belief that addiction is not a one-size-fits-all disease. While it reaches all walks of life, addiction affects everyone differently. Therefore, our treatment model has been designed to address the individual needs of the patient, customizing therapy to fit their unique circumstances and situations.
The Intensive Outpatient Program at Banyan Heartland is intended to prepare patients for everyday life once they leave treatment. 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. During this stage of care, our goal is to equip patients with the necessary tools to tackle their addiction, resist possible drug cravings, and face stressful situations when they may arise.
Additionally, support and recovery services will continue to be provided to patients, long after treatment has ended.
Through our Alumni Program, patients remain connected to the Banyan community, as well as the larger local recovery community. This program serves as a perfect aftercare plan for those who are practicing long-term sobriety, and allows former patients to receive support and encouragement from individuals who have shared similar experiences. Our Alumni team is dedicated to helping our alumni remain on the path of recovery, as they learn to live productive lives and fight through temptation should it crop up.

"My experience was nothing short of amazing. The staff is excellent, they all went way out of their way to help me with whatever I needed. They gave me the tools i needed to succeed, and were always there for me when I completed the program and when I fell short. Thank you so much Banyan!"

"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."
