Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Aurora Charter Oak’s IOP is designed to provide a comprehensive therapeutic environment for the treatment of mental health and/or substance use issues. Our goal is to empower each individual to set and reach their own personal goals in order to find success and happiness. Therapy groups and educational sessions are geared toward treating the underlying causes of the emotional and behavioral challenges individuals are facing and help to facilitate the recovery process.

One of the benefits of attending an IOP program is that individuals can receive intensive therapy, yet still be able to maintain their daily schedule. IOP includes three therapy groups a day, up to five days a week. Group assignment is based on the individual’s treatment needs. Mental health and chemical dependency groups are offered. Most private insurance companies cover this service, as does Medicare. We offer complimentary local transportation and meals.
