Outpatient Treatment

The UMADAOP Outpatient Treatment Program is a part-time program usually requiring 6 hours per week of meetings including individual and group therapy that focus on the development of real-world coping skills for maintaining sobriety. The Outpatient program typically lasts for three to six months.

Patients who are in an outpatient program can continue to work, attend school, and live at home; though, sometimes it is recommended that patients stay in transitional, sober living housing where they can get additional support from their peers in recovery and get away from any undue influences enabling their addictions. Meetings and counseling sessions at an outpatient center are typically held in the morning or evenings so that people can continue on with regular daily schedules.

Outpatient Treatment

The Outpatient treatment is not the right choice for everyone. Outpatient treatment can, however, be a good option for someone with a mild addiction, or for someone “stepping down” from inpatient treatment. Many people in recovery choose to transition from inpatient rehab to intensive outpatient or outpatient program so that they can practice applying the skills they learned in inpatient treatment to the real-world while still getting the extra support and guidance they need.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment

UMADAOP Lucas County offers an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for substance abuse and mental health treatment in which people visit the treatment center several days a week for a few hours at a time. The IOP is time-intensive, but unlike an inpatient program, it does not require patients to live at the facility.


The Intensive outpatient programs typically meet on weekdays in the morning or evening. Programs primarily consist of group therapy, though they may offer other services. Most programs last about 90 days or longer, and include drug testing.


The services are structured to provide individual and group alcohol and/or other drug treatment services. The activities last at least 3 hours a day and at least 3 days a week according to individualized treatment plans.


Group therapy is the main component of the intensive outpatient program. Groups allow patients to improve their communication, learn how to socialize without drugs or alcohol, support each other, and experience structure and discipline.


Other Intensive outpatient program services include individual counseling, medication management, case management, introduction to support groups, psychiatric screening, and family support.
