Intensive Outpatient Program
The battle against addiction never truly ends.
Our Intensive Outpatient Program provides a proven path to long term addiction recovery. At Next Step Recovery, we offer both a stand alone IOP program and an integrated sober living/IOP model.
Our IOP is open to residents of our sober living program and the greater Asheville community.
For those who no longer need a residential program, intensive outpatient programs are a great way to continue addiction therapy. In this way, you can continue addiction treatment on a part-time basis. Still, the “intensive” schedule helps facilitate truly sustainable sobriety.
Our IOP program is designed to enhance self awareness and increase personal power. Our clinical staff uses decades of experience and boatloads of compassion to help you take the Next Step.

How Our IOP Program Works
Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provides the perfect transition to transitional living for those who have just left inpatient treatment, have complicated addiction histories with multiple relapses, or are new to recovery.
Our 12-week program is designed to give extra clinical and 12-step support during the early weeks of recovery when the risk of relapse is highest. Next Step Recovery’s IOP uses a three-pronged approach that includes intensive group therapy, individual counseling, and 12-step immersion education to support long-term recovery. Participants also explore wilderness and equine therapies to encourage healing, personal empowerment and community building.
While offering many of the same benefits, our program goes beyond traditional IOPs by being housed within our transitional living program. Upon completion of our 12-week intensive program, residents continue to receive recovery support through our transitional living program including case management, 12-step support, relapse prevention education, mindfulness meditation, and adventure therapy.
As part of admission to our program, all clients are provided with an individualized comprehensive clinical assessment to identify the level and type of support that will best support their long-term recovery goals. If it is determined that extra support would be beneficial, clients may be encouraged to participate in our IOP and/or work with other medical providers such as a psychiatrist.
To ensure the quality and safety of our programming, Next Step Recovery’s IOP is only available to residents of our transitional living program who have met program eligibility criteria including those related to medications, alcohol/drug screening and background checks.
Payment and Insurance
Our IOP may be covered by most major health insurance plans. We also accept cash, check, and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express). We do not accept Medicaid or Medicare at this time. Transitional living program fees are not covered by IOP fees and are assessed separately.
