Intensive Outpatient Program

Structured treatment for adults coping with substance use or co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. Services include group and individual counseling, on-site collection for random toxicology screens by an independent laboratory, and as-needed psychiatry and case management.

Thrive Behavioral Health is Kent County's leading provider of treatment for people experiencing behavioral health issues. Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) serves adults aged 18 or older who do not require an inpatient program but for whom traditional outpatient treatment is inadequate. In the IOP, clients receive professional help in an environment of dignity and respect.

“This is the first place that didn’t judge me.” 2019 Thrive IOP Graduate

We understand that recovery is a process that requires patience, support, and commitment. Every recovery plan is individualized to meet the unique needs of the individual, empowering each client to find their optimal path to recovery.

“Having worked in other IOPs, I find Thrive’s to be unique. Providing education about substance use disorder as a disease helps empower clients. Small groups and individual
sessions allow for personalized compassionate treatment.”
 2019 Thrive IOP Clinician
