About the Diamond IOP at Richmond
The Richmond IOP is a six-week program for people with addiction. Its four-day-a-week structure provides addiction education and counseling components while encouraging clients to apply the recovery skills to their daily lives as productive members of their community. This supportive IOP can serve in a continuum of care following a residential treatment program or as appropriate initial therapy based on criteria set by the American Society of Addiction Medicine.
The IOP runs evenings, from six to nine o’clock, and allows patients to continue working, maintain their current living situation, and improve their relationships, all while receiving services right in their community.
