The Ridge’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in Cincinnati, Ohio merges evidence-based treatments with a flexible half-day structure. This enables you to balance work, education, and family needs while staying committed to recovery. One level beneath partial hospitalization, our IOP delivers a rigorous three-hour daily treatment, ranging from three to five days a week.

A Flexible Schedule For Addiction Treatment

If you or a loved one require addiction treatment but can’t commit to partial hospitalization or a 24/7 residential program, our IOP serves as a solution. It’s been meticulously designed for those who require a flexible treatment schedule.

Upon initiation into our IOP, you’ll collaborate with our seasoned clinical team to craft a comprehensive treatment strategy that works with your schedule. Whether you have work, family, or other important responsibilities to uphold, our team works with you to ensure you receive the care you need without sacrificing commitments. This flexibility not only promotes a seamless integration of treatment into your daily life but also emphasizes our commitment to making recovery accessible and achievable.

Your Treatment Plan–A Personalized Approach

Given that every addiction story is a unique web of experiences and challenges, a one-size-fits-all attitude to treatment is inadequate. Recognizing this, we champion a highly personalized approach to your recovery, taking into account a diverse range of factors, such as past traumas, interpersonal challenges, and mental health conditions.

There’s more work to be done after leaving a detox or residential program, so our intensive outpatient treatment in Cincinnati teaches you to manage triggers, cope with cravings, and avoid relapse. A typical day within our IOP allows you to access an extensive range of treatments and therapeutic modalities. These could include some of the following:

Group Therapy/Counseling

  • Relapse Prevention
  • Grief, Loss, and Trauma
  • The Science of Addiction
  • The Science of Recovery
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Anger Management
  • Meditation
  • Relationships
  • Setting Healthy Boundaries
  • Positive Communication
  • Trigger Identification/Management
  • Coping Skills
  • Processing Guilt and Shame
  • Understanding Denial
  • Hope and Recovery
  • Acceptance and Recovery
  • Spirituality

Individual Therapy/Counseling

Family Therapy/Counseling

Complementary Modalities

What Happens After IOP?

The length of your Intensive Outpatient Program depends on your recovery progress. We assess this based on your unique needs as identified in your treatment plan, the input of your counselors, along with other factors such as insurance coverage and personal commitments. For some, a transition to our standard outpatient program might be recommended, while others may be ready to continue their journey without formal treatment. Whatever your next chapter is, we’ll ensure it’s aligned with your unique situation and aspirations.

Supporting Your Lasting Recovery

Completing the IOP is an undeniable achievement, but it isn’t the end of your journey with The Ridge—it’s just the beginning. If you choose to transition out of our treatment programs, you’ll be provided with a comprehensive aftercare plan, detailing optimal recovery activities, contacts for therapists and sponsors, and a selection of community resources tailored for you. What’s more, you’ll become part of The Ridge’s respected alumni community—a growing network offering shared experiences and mutual support. This invaluable connection, along with a commitment to your aftercare plan, will enable you to hone your relapse prevention skills and pave your way to lasting sobriety.
