Effective Intensive Outpatient Program in San Diego

Sober Life helps individuals on the road to recovery with an in-depth, short-term Outpatient Programs (OP).


We Tailor the Treatment to You

Our Intensive Outpatient Treatment services in San Diego are designed for those who do not have the luxury of taking time off to check into a residential treatment facility. Our programs are offered 3-5 days a week for three hours a day depending on the individual patient’s needs. We can work around our clients’ schedules to allow them to live a normal life. They can manage their daily responsibilities while receiving treatment.

When patients are discharged from inpatient treatment centers, it is recommended that they continue care to ensure lasting success. Without follow up and accountability, many clients fall victim and revert to old behavior followed by an inevitable relapse. IOP can help combat this relapse and keep you on track.

Most IOP at Sober Life lasts around three months. After the program is complete, clients move down to a less intensive Outpatient Program (OP). However, if you are looking for more rigorous treatment, we recommend looking into our Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP).
