Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in Austin, Texas

Young adult men beginning the process of recovery from addiction or other mental health challenges need a solution unique to their needs and lifestyle. Alpha IOP offers a flexible option to receive clinical, recreational, and social programming while living at home, your dorm, or another sober living environment.

What is IOP?

While inpatient treatment requires you to reside at the facility, Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) meet at scheduled times throughout the week. Traditional IOPs can be effective. However, typical IOP groups may consist of people of all ages, all genders, or people not interested in education. Alpha IOP consists only of college-age males (or male-identifying individuals) looking to make inspired transformation in their recovery and academic lives. Alpha IOP is more than just group therapy, it’s a community of peers just like you
