Intensive Outpatient


Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in Arizona

Cornerstone Healing Center provides daytime and evening intensive outpatient programs (IOP) in Scottsdale, Arizona for those committed to breaking the cycle of addiction and avoiding relapse. These 3-hour sessions are offered three days a week and are a condensed version of our partial hospitalization program (PHP).

Before we look at the many benefits of attending an IOP, let’s first take a look at what an intensive outpatient program is.

IOP at Cornerstone Healing Center takes a mind-body-spirit approach to addiction treatment. In addition to participating in group therapy and 12 Step program meetings, participants receive a curriculum designed to help them succeed long-term.


Addiction recovery is a lifetime endeavor and an IOP program enables clients to balance independent living with disciplines that strengthen their journey in sobriety. Flexible scheduling helps clients maintain a work-life balance with addiction treatment. An intensive outpatient program is a level of care appropriate for those integrating themselves back into life while practicing the disciplines of a healthy and sober lifestyle.

Activities at our Scottsdale IOP include:

Benefits of IOP

Moving to an inpatient rehab facility is not feasible for many clients. Some have family responsibilities they cannot neglect, others want to continue working or continue attending school as they navigate the recovery process, and others are at a point in recovery where the level of support they need does not require inpatient rehab. This is where intensive outpatient care can help.

Cornerstone’s Arizona IOP provides flexibility for clients overcoming addiction. The shorter, less frequent intervals of attending IOP may work for those who have support from family and friends. Here are some benefits of IOP: 

  • Flexible hours: Evening IOP gives clients the ability to work or attend school and return to family after the program. If clients have outside responsibilities, they don’t need to put their obligations to the side to seek help. 
  • Community: IOP participants meet peers and sponsors who are going through similar struggles and journeys. This supportive community can provide resources and strength for those working to overcome addiction.
  • Real-world application: Those who attend our IOP program can apply the things they learn in classes to their everyday lives the moment they go home. Sometimes transitioning from treatment to the real world can be difficult, but IOP allows clients to take home with them skills they learned from mindfulness to nutrition and put it to practice on their off time.
  • Structured but flexible treatment: Intensive outpatient programs allow clients to live at home while attending the same programs as partial hospitalization. Clients still benefit from the structure provided by classes while still keeping outside responsibilities and routines. 
  • Lower costs: Compared to inpatient treatment, IOP is a lower cost. While we accept most insurance and are willing to work out a flexible payment plan, money shouldn’t be a barrier to treatment. 

The activities in IOP are similar to what clients would encounter in our PHP program or an inpatient rehab program, but the flexibility offered may be instrumental in helping clients achieve a successful re-entry to work and home life.

IOP Treatment in Scottsdale

Addiction doesn’t just affect your health but destroys every aspect of your life, turning it upside down. Unfortunately, not everyone can put their lives on hold for partial hospitalization treatment. Commitment becomes a barrier for those who need treatment, and they choose to forgo help. Cornerstone Healing Center breaks that barrier, allowing clients the option to commit to just 3 hours a day, three days a week, leaving time for work, school, or taking care of family. 

Here at Cornerstone’s Scottsdale IOP, we care deeply about our clients because most of us have been there. Our staff is dedicated to helping you rebuild your life, end the cycle of addiction and become a healthy, functioning member of society.
