smartIOP is the first online intensive outpatient program (IOP) to treat drug and alcohol addiction.

In-network with most major insurance providers!

How does smartIOP Work?

Every Smart IOP participant, chooses a smartSponsor. 

smartIOP is a self-study online substance abuse treatment program offering therapy and treatment on your schedule. The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a level of care that is one step above traditional outpatient therapy.

You will meet one-on-one with your therapist and case manager in set intervals after you complete a set number of video modules. Your assigned therapist will monitor your progress in the program and they will help you to apply what you have learned to your own specific circumstances.

The program is designed for mild to moderate alcohol/substance abuse problems and it is extremely flexible with individual schedules. Though we intend for patients to complete smartIOP in 6-12 weeks, you decide when to finish each session. If your schedule is unpredictable or you have rotating shifts this program is for you!

More About the smartSponsor

Every Smart IOP participant, chooses a smartSponsor. 

The Sponsor is usually someone inside your life (a friend, peer or family member) who can help with accountability and the development of healthy habits. They ensure that you are actively participating in the program and helps us monitor your sobriety.

We cannot overstate the value of a smartSponsor in an online IOP.  We strongly believe that participating with another person fosters the development of a sober support network.

The Smart Sponsor may use a breathalyzer or oral drug screen to make sure the client is sober. In addition, a therapist may ask you to submit test results. The results of the test can be seen and recorded through the individual video session (don’t worry: we use oral swabs for drug/alcohol test – no urine collection necessary).

We designed smartIOP to fit your life, and we believe that the smartSponsor should be a part of your life and your treatment.  

We make sure everyone involved understands the nature of addiction.

Sponsors participate in activities and education with clients to provide a source of strong and active support. In the longer term, your sponsor may help you navigate challenges that follow once you complete your program.
