Intensive Outpatient Programs in Florida

JourneyPure Emerald Coast’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) offers a full curriculum of drug & alcohol education, counseling and therapy. Our intensive outpatient addiction treatment is a primary treatment program that may be recommended in some circumstances by a medical and clinical assessment. Our intensive outpatient program for substance abuse may be recommended for those who do not need a medically supervised detox. It also enables those in recovery to continue their recovery therapies after a successful detox, while on a part-time, but intensive schedule. This type of outpatient service is often designed to accommodate your work and family life. Intensive outpatient clients are often local and reside at home while attending treatment.

Services Offered During Intensive Outpatient Alcohol and Drug Treatment


The services we offer at JourneyPure Emerald Coast’s IOP align with those that we provide our inpatient clients. These include:

  • Addiction Treatment — This is a basic service as part of our intensive outpatient substance abuse program. We treat the whole person, not just the main causes for the addiction. By adopting a holistic approach to drug and alcohol addiction treatment, we can help you feel whole and in control again.
  • Anxiety Treatment — Do you suffer from an anxiety disorder? This can contribute to addiction and must be addressed uniquely according to your lifestyle, history and more. Our professionals understand how to provide you with the skills and understanding to recover from your addiction, as well as your anxiety.
  • Case Management — While you are part of our OIP in Panama City Beach, FL, we will monitor you through intensive case management. The JourneyPure Emerald Coast case managers assigned to work with you are compassionate and knowledgeable. Their goal is the same as yours: to beat your addiction.
  • Dual Diagnosis — Many clients who come through our intensive outpatient treatment for drug or alcohol addiction have a dual diagnosis. This means there is an underlying mental health challenge that is playing a role in their addiction, such as bipolar disorder, clinical depression, OCD or anxiety disorder. We will help you treat your mental health challenges concurrently with your addiction.
  • Experiential Therapy — One of the most well-regarded aspects of our intensive outpatient treatment program is the access you have to experiential therapies including songwriting workshops, teambuilding activities and art therapies.
  • Aftercare Support — As with all clients of JourneyPure Emerald Coast, you will receive the highest quality of aftercare support post-treatment. This aftercare support helps you begin a new life that is free from addiction. Our aftercare support can also minimize the likelihood of relapsing.
