NEW! Intensive Outpatient Program

Equinox’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a 12-week, group-centered program for individuals, age 18 and older, who are faced with substance use or addiction. Individuals residing in Albany County or surrounding areas are eligible to participate. Although the program is group based, our certified counselors use an approach that focuses on each client’s needs. IOP provides:

  •  Open Enrollment
  •  3 Hours of Services Per Day, 3 Days A Week
  •  Group Topics, including: psychoeducation on addiction, recovery, emotions, and mental health, grief, relationships, stress management, and mindfulness
  •  Access to an assigned Clinician for individual sessions
  •  Access to Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
  •  Access to Psychiatry appointments including evaluations and medication management
  •  Access to Non-intensive outpatient services following completion of program

Family support is also offered through our Counseling Center. Families are essential in our clients’ recovery. We offer support and education to family members about substance use, recovery, and addiction.
