How does Smart IOP Work?

Step 1
Select someone to be your smart Sponsor

A Smart Sponsor is someone you select, typically a friend or family member, to support you during your time in the Smart IOP program. Read all about Smart Sponsors Below.

Step 2
Set-up Smart IOP technology tools

To use Smart IOP, you will first need to set-up user accounts with our technology providers.  Smart IOP works well on all devices, operating systems and web browsers. You will need a secure Internet connection and a camera for 1:1 therapy sessions.
After your acceptance into the Smart IOP program, a customer service representative will contact you to assist with set-up.

Step 3
Access online treatment

Smart IOP provides twice the amount of one-on-one therapy compared with other IOPs. Use our online tools to participate in 11 sessions with your assessment team, therapists and case managers. There are also over 70 videos in our library for you to watch with your Smart Sponsor, friends and family. Educating members of your support network will be critical for your continued recovery once you complete the Smart IOP program.

Step 4
Attend weekly support group meetings with your smart Sponsor

A critical part of your recovery will be through attendance at weekly support groups with your Smart Sponsor. This is the only offline part of the Smart IOP program. You will also need to submit to regular sobriety checks with your Smart Sponsor.

Step 5
Track your progress through completion

Your progress will be tracked through Smart IOP and verified by your Smart Sponsor. Most participants complete the program in 6-12 weeks.

Every Smart IOP participant, chooses a Smart Sponsor. 

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. He or she ensures that  you are actively participating in the program and helps us monitor your sobriety.

We cannot overstate the value of a Smart Sponsor 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 Smart IOP to fit your life, and we believe that the Smart Sponsor 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. INB the longer term, your sponsor may help you navigate challenges that follow once you complete your program.
