Is Our IOP Right For You?

At Alta Mira, we help you create the best path for your journey to health. With this goal in mind, our experts will work with you to determine if the IOP is right for you. In general, you are an ideal candidate for our outpatient services if:

  • You’ve just completed a residential treatment program, or are in the early stages of addiction
  • You have sufficient structure and support in your home environment to maintain sobriety in an Intensive Outpatient Program

The Alta Mira IOP combines our highly advanced treatment methods with the flexibility of outpatient care. If you’re interested in learning more about how we can help you, our compassionate staff is here to listen to your story. Please contact us at any time.
