Patients admitted to Oxford Treatment Center’s Intensive Outpatient Program will meet three times weekly for an average of 10 weeks. The treatment term depends upon the needs of the patient and his or her family. Group meetings include educational and group-therapy sessions. Individual sessions with a clinical therapist are also part of the IOP and scheduled separately. Each patient gains a 12-step sponsor to complete the IOP and continues their 12-step meeting schedule during their two-year period in Aftercare.
