Intensive Outpatient Program Los Angeles | IOP Rehab

At Nexus, we recognize that every client comes to us with different backgrounds, interests, and needs. Consequently, we maintain a small client to clinician ratio in order to have the ability to tailor our addiction treatment programs to best serve each individual.

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Nexus is ideal for those who are transitioning from a residential treatment facility or who need a part-time yet intensive schedule that can accommodate their work, school, and/or family life. At the IOP level of care, clients participate in our rehab programming for three to four hours a day, three to five days a week. During this phase, our goal is to continue to create a solid foundation for our clients and support them as they transition from the IOP to a less intensive treatment.

All treatment plans are created by members of our clinical team, who also utilize client input while curating each plan. Treatment plans are reviewed and updated on a weekly basis, during which time clients may provide feedback that our clinicians take into consideration while making any adjustments.

For clients who are in need of housing, we can also provide resources for sober living options. Our Los Angeles Rehab center is one of the top IOP providers for you and your family.

Alumni & Family Testimonials

“Nexus Recovery Services outpatient program is by far the best I’ve ever been to. Fighting addiction for the past 12 years I have been to a lot of intensive outpatient programs over the years and had a variety of experiences but none of them provided the level of comfort, care, and accountability that Nexus did for me. All of the staff and clinical team are hardworking, passionate people who are almost all in recovery and provide such a warm experience to their clients. The one on one therapy sessions combined with the varied group topic discussions and field trips provided an experience for me that gave me a foundation to kickstart my journey in recovery that I am forever grateful for. I frequent Nexus on a regular basis still to this day because I was given a new family there. I am forever grateful for Nexus… will consider everyone there friends and family for the rest of my life”

About Our Intensive Outpatient Program

Individual are not one-size-fits-all so why should recovery be?

Our Intensive Outpatient Program is designed to adapt to meet the needs of each client in our program. With a variety of therapeuti modalities and treatment elements, we are able to keep clients engaged in treatment long-term, while also addressing both the underlying causes of addiction and the development of a new set of tools to lead happy, successful, sober lives. Our Intensive Outpatient program includes:

Coordination with Psychiatrist: If needed, we may refer you to a psychiatrist who will assess your needs and can make changes to medications or other aspects of care that address any underlying mental health conditions.

Individual therapy: During this stage of treatment, you will continue to meet with your individual therapist on a weekly basis. These weekly sessions will provide you with the opportunity to continue to identify and work through any underlying issues impacting your recovery and strengthen your emotional regulation skills.

Family therapy: Upon entering the Intensive Outpatient Program, you can continue to attend our weekly multi-family education group. Family members are still encouraged to attend and learn how to support your during your transition to less intensive treatment.

Group therapy: IOP clients may still attend a variety of groups that are offered on a daily basis. In addition to Process Groups, 12-Step Groups, and Multi-Family Groups, you also have access to groups focusing on health and wellness, life skills training, relapse prevention, and the psychology of positive recovery.

Case management: As you transition to less intensive treatment, your case manager will still be monitoring your treatment program and developing a plan for discharge. Aftercare planning is crucial during this phase, meaning your case manager will be actively assisting you to put systems in place that will support you outside of treatment. These may include referrals to sober living options, employment or educational services, and ongoing medical care.

Psycho-Education & Experiential groups: IOP clients may still attend psychoeducation and experiential groups to continue to develop healthy interpersonal relationships, strengthen emotional self-regulation, and explore holistic treatment modalities. Yoga, meditation, cognitive restructuring, Chinese medicine, and mindfulness groups are some of the groups that may available.

Holistic services: IOP clients may still engage in holistic therapies during this phase of treatment. Some of the integrative treatment options at Nexus include acupuncture, EDMR, neurofeedback, Somatic Work.  

Community involvement: We believe community involvement is important during the entire treatment process. During this phase of treatment, you may be encouraged to take on more responsibility within the Nexus and local community. This may include taking part in our internship program, engaging in community service, and becoming a Big Brother to those who are new to recovery.

Spiritual counseling: IOP clients continue to build upon spiritual practices they developed during initial phases of treatment. There remains deep focus on developing self-worth, practicing self-compassion, exercising gratitude, and identifying and exploring life purpose. You may still attend weekly groups with our trained spiritual counselor and will continue to develop your spiritual self in 12-Step groups.

Nutritional & Fitness counseling: Clients may continue to attend groups devoted to learning about optimal nutritional health and how to maintain good nutritional practices outside of treatment. Clients may also take part in a fitness assessment and create fitness goals to enhance mindfulness about properly caring for the body.

Career & educational planning: As clients enter a less intensive phase of treatment, they may have access to career and education services such as resume building, academic planning, and financial goal setting. These services continue to assist clients in envisioning and creating a fulfilling life outside of treatment.

Group outings: IOP clients may still take part of group outings, which can include trips to the beach, hiking local trails, or visiting a nearby surf spot.

Continuing recovery & aftercare planning: During this phase of treatment, your Continuing Recovery Aftercare Plan is revisited and updated based on your progress, goals, and needs. Systems will continue to be put in place that are designed to help you maintain your sobriety after you leave treatment.
