AC/ESS intensive outpatient (IOP) includes a blend of on ground/face to face therapy, phone therapy, electronic transmission, which provides structured support and monitoring. Individuals are expected to spend at least 9 hours per week on drug rehab treatment activities. Individual therapy is conducted once a week, either in person or over the phone. Multiple counselor-patient contacts also occur throughout the week either over the phone or through private messaging in the virtual therapy room. The virtual drug rehab therapy room contains lectures, group work, and assignments for patients to complete during their treatment.
