Intensive Outpatient Overview

COVID-19 Location update: As Diamond IOPs have officially moved completely to telehealth, we are now able to accept referrals for ANY and ALL Virginia patients.  We are no longer limited to patients who live in the geographical regions where we have office space.  Patients will be enrolled into IOP based on census and therapeutic appropriateness.

Farley’s intensive outpatient program allows patients to continue working, maintain their current living situation, and improve their relationships—all while receiving services right in their community. The program is open to adults 18 and older who have a substance use disorder with possible co-occurring psychiatric conditions who experience significant impairment in their daily functioning.  To participate, patients must commit to attending a minimum of three hours of therapy four times per week.

The key to successful treatment is an initial evaluation and assessment of the patient and his or her family by our treatment professionals. Admission to the Intensive Outpatient Program is based upon this assessment and meeting the following criteria:

  • be at least 18 years old
  • have a diagnosis of primary chemical dependency
  • be ready for discharge from a partial hospitalization program (PHP) setting
  • be sufficiently medically stable for this level of care and not manifest symptoms of withdrawal
  • exhibit symptoms of a addictive disorder and symptoms of a psychiatric illness of such severity that there is significant interference with social, vocational, or educational functioning
  • have the cognitive ability to benefit from insight-oriented therapy
  • agree to periodic and random urine drug screens and/or breathalyzer or blood alcohol testing while participating in the program
  • have the transportation necessary to allow for participation
  • not be as distressed or disordered as to present an imminent danger to self or others
  • have a person living in the community who will support the patient’s participation
