The Adolescent Substance Abuse and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), Hope’s Promise offers services for youth who experience severe functional impairment as a result of a substance abuse or a co-occurring substance abuse and mental illness disorder.

A goal of the program is to prevent hospitalization, removal from the home, or expulsion from school by providing intensive treatment in the least restrictive environment possible. This program permits services to be offered while also allowing individuals the opportunity to apply their newly acquired skills in real world environments. Treatment may last for a period of up to twelve months. IOP is open to youth ages 12 through 18 with group therapy occurring Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday and individual therapy as set by the individual youth and staff.
