Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at The Excel Center of Arlington offers treatment for emotional, behavioral and/or substance abuse problems. This program is less intensive than partial hospitalization, but it is more intensive than traditional outpatient therapy. It is designed to provide stabilization and resolution of immediate problem areas.

The family is involved in the treatment process, as we consider family participation to be a vital link in treatment and follow-up care.

Referring professionals are invited to collaborate on a patient with the treatment team. With the patient’s permission, these professionals are continually updated on the patient’s progress and the individual is referred back to the professional for continued follow-up care.

The Intensive Outpatient Program operates:

  • Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., for mental health
  • Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., for chemical dependency
  • *Customizable IOP programming is available

The Excel Center of Arlington also offers a specialized chemical dependency intensive outpatient program, which meets Monday through Friday, or Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings.
