Intensive Outpatient Program

Our Intensive Outpatient Program assists individuals with recognizing the negative consequences related to substance use disorders. The Bridges of San Diego IOP provides support and healthy solutions with an appropriate action plan for every individual, not a one size fits all approach. Every individual is unique, and the level of care is determined at a personal assessment appointment with our Clinical Director.

San Diego Intensive
Outpatient Program

The Intensive Outpatient Program at The Bridges of San Diego is specifically designed for individuals who are just transitioning out of inpatient rehab, or those looking for serious drug and alcohol treatment, but are not able to take time away from work and family, or possibly, cannot afford rehab in an inpatient environment – at the Bridges, we realize that not everyone can just put their life on hold in order to address a substance use disorder!
