Rehab in St. Petersburg

It’s time to put your health first. Call us right now to learn how we can help you break the cycle of addiction for good and create a new life of possibility

In our fast-paced lives, addressing mental health and substance use issues remains crucial. For many, the demands of a full-time job, school, or family obligations can pose significant challenges to seeking effective treatment. Evening Intensive Outpatient Programs, commonly referred to as Evening IOPs, are designed with such individuals in mind.

At Tampa Bay Recovery Center, our evening IOP program in St. Petersburg can provide not only convenience but also a comforting atmosphere that can help you create sustainable change in your life. 

What is Evening IOP?

Evening IOP, or Intensive Outpatient Program, is a structured outpatient therapy option for those who require a higher level of care than traditional therapy but do not require full-time residential treatment. Scheduled during the evening hours, our evening IOP program allows participants to maintain their daytime responsibilities while obtaining intensive treatment in the evenings.

Our evening IOP incorporates individual counseling, group therapy, educational sessions, and skills workshops. Evening IOP, in essence, provides the same level of structured therapeutic intervention as regular outpatient treatment, a time that might be more convenient for many individuals who have other daily obligations.

Evening Intensive Outpatient Programming takes place three times per week. During programming, individuals meet with their primary therapist once every other week. In addition, they see our Nurse Practitioner once every other week along with their case manager. When not with these people, clients partake in red light therapy, group therapy, and trauma therapy, family therapy and medication-assisted treatment

  • Experienced Professionals: Our team comprises skilled therapists with vast experience in dealing with various challenges.
  • Supportive Environment: Our Evening IOP fosters a judgment-free zone where everyone is encouraged to share and grow.
  • Integration with Daily Life: Real-life situations, daily stressors, and triggers can be discussed in real-time, making the therapy more dynamic and effective.

Once you complete the Evening IOP, the journey doesn’t end there. Our commitment is to your long-term well-being. Post-IOP, you will:
