Adult Intensive Outpatient Program
If you or a loved one just returned from a residential (or inpatient) treatment center, also known as rehab, you may wonder what happens next.
Coming home and adjusting to daily life after inpatient care can be a challenging transition. Here at Serenity Lane, we want to make sure that this transition is as seamless as possible.
We do this by offering different types of outpatient programs. These programs typically follow day treatment.
After inpatient treatment, a client can go through day treatment (or partial hospitalization). It involves five to seven days of programming a week for up to six hours a day.
Following day treatment, there are two different types of outpatient programs to choose from. The difference is that one is more intensive than the other.
What Are the Different Types of Outpatient Programs?
Our level I outpatient program meets for one and a half hours once a week. The purpose of this is to learn to identify and manage stressful life events and to cope with the inevitable ups and downs of early recovery. It is provided in a community close to the patient’s hometown.
On the other hand, we offer a more intensive option: level IIintensive outpatient. Intensive outpatient is a rigorous and comprehensive ten-week program comprised of group therapy, individual counseling, and education about substance use disorders.
Level II intensive outpatient treatment groups meet for three hours, three times per week at one of Serenity Lane’s outpatient clinics’ locations in Albany, Bend, Eugene, Roseburg, Salem, Portland-SouthWest (Barbur), and Portland-SouthEast.
Typically, clients gradually reduce their level of care over time and ease back into daily life. This is why clients usually start by attending our intensive outpatient program and then cut back on programming by following up with our level I outpatient program.

Intensive outpatient care allows you to continue to get rigorous treatment while easing into your everyday life. There are many services involved in our outpatient treatment programs. Services and benefits involved with our outpatient treatment programs include:

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between inpatient and outpatient?
Inpatient treatment requires the individual struggling with a substance use disorder to stay at a facility for a specified amount of time. On the other hand, outpatient treatment can be completed during the day with clients returning home in the evening. Inpatient treatment is the most intensive form of treatment for substance use recovery. After inpatient treatment, clients typically then receive day treatment followed by outpatient treatment.
What is mental behavioral health outpatient services?
Mental behavioral health outpatient services involve getting therapy from any type of psychotherapist or mental health professional. Services typically involve individual therapy, group therapy, and medication management.
What are examples of outpatient services?
Outpatient services in addiction treatment include day treatment (or partial hospitalization), IOPs (intensive outpatient programs), and medication-assisted treatment (MAT). Day treatment involves five to seven days of programming a week for up to six hours a day. IOPs meet three times a week for three hours a session. MAT programs use FDA-approved medications along with clinical therapies to treat an opioid use disorder.
What is meant by outpatient status?
If you aren’t hospitalized or admitted into a facility, but receive treatment at a facility for treatment or a diagnosis (such as a clinic, hospital, or treatment center), you are considered outpatient.
