How Can Core Recovery's IOP Help Me?

Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, or trauma? At Core Recovery we provide an intensive outpatient program (IOP) that includes evidence-based treatment strategies to meet the individual needs of our patients.

Core’s IOP includes individual and group therapy and also includes being seen weekly by our psychiatric medication prescriber to manage our patient’s medication needs. Our program provides intensive treatment for:

  • Anxiety
  • Co-occurring Psychological Disorders
  • Depression
  • Mental Health Struggles
  • Stress
  • Substance Abuse Problems
  • Trauma

What to Expect from Our Program

Core Recovery has Master Level Therapists licensed by the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health. Our clinicians provide a biopsychosocial assessment and utilize psychological diagnostic tools to identify mental health and substance abuse issues. After the assessment the clinicians create a treatment plan that uses evidenced based treatment strategies to meet the individual needs of patients.

Core Recovery provides an Intensive Outpatient Program that uses Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). DBT is an integration of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness skills that helps identify the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviors and their impact on life situations. It balances validation of an individual’s experience with the development of skills to manage crisis, regulate emotions, and enhance motivation to change.

How to Know if IOP is Right for You

The Intensive Outpatient Program is designed to help those struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, or addictions with a integrative treatment approach. IOP is a good treatment options for those that don’t quite need the level of care the partial hospitalization program provides but would benefit from multiple types of therapy each week.

Those in our integrative IOP program are able to learn about the triggers for their anxiety, depression, or addictions, as well as healthy options for coping with and managing those triggers. They receive group therapy, 1:1 sessions, and family sessions to help build stronger support relationships in their lives.

Our program offers:

  • Biopsychosocial approach to strengthening neglected areas of a patient’s life

  • Relaxation and visualization techniques

  • Encouragement and support of positive beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and attitude in regards to change

  • Learning to incorporate pro-social skills
