Drug Court Intensive Outpatient Services

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Southeastern New Hampshire Services is a substance misuse program for men and women aged 18 and above who are residents of Strafford County.  Participants are referred to the IOP via the Strafford County Drug Treatment Court Program.

The minimum length of treatment is 12 months, followed by six months of aftercare. Program components include, but are not limited to:

  • group and individual psychotherapy
  • psycho-educational lectures
  • recovery related assignments
  • medication assisted treatment service

Participants move through progressive levels and complete relevant treatment objectives related to understanding the nature of addiction, relapse prevention and development of an effective recovery program.  The IOP requires participants to maintain a commitment to abstinence from all use of addictive substances as well as attendance at weekly self-help meetings.  Participants may be eligible to return to IOP in a three month Relapse Track if they experience a relapse episode after graduating.
