Outpatient Services

Alta Mira’s continuum of outpatient services provide treatment options and continuing care for individuals who need structured recovery support for addiction and co-occurring disorders while managing daily life commitments.

In our comprehensive day and evening intensive outpatient programs (IOP), clients learn to build healthier relationships, gain insights into behaviors and patterns, develop emotion regulation skills, establish a support network, and practice essential relapse prevention tools for life in recovery while creating a sober routine.

In addition, clients participate in a wide range of educational groups and holistic treatments.

Continuing care services are also offered at our Outpatient Center.

Day and Evening Intensive Outpatient Programs

Our IOP runs for a minimum of 12 weeks (with extensions determined on an individual basis) and includes individual therapy, process groups, holistic treatment services, experiential outings, and educational groups.

We offer support for both addiction and co-occurring psychiatric disorders.
