IOP: TradeCraft12

During the initial six to 12 weeks at Foundation House, clients are enrolled in Tradecraft12, our licensed Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Residents live in our homes and participate in IOP programming in our main clinical facility just a half-mile away. This program creates an initial safety net of support within the first months, while allowing residents to practice their daily tools of recovery in the real world.

IOP programming is billed three days a week, and clients must attend sessions for a minimum of three hours each of those days. IOP programming is all inclusive – group and individual counseling, wellness assessments, medication management, counseling, etc.

Clinicians create a tailored treatment plan for each resident within 48 hours of arrival Foundation House. Our program is grounded in individual and group therapy, peer support, holistic wellness, life skills, relapse prevention, experiential activities, DBT, trauma-informed therapy, and the underlying principles of the 12 Steps.
