Health Connect America's IOP programs provide integrated treatment for co-occurring substance abuse and mental health issues. We have locations in Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Virginia currently, and plan to continue adding locations over time. Health Connect America provides substance abuse and mental health intensive outpatient programs for adults and adolescents in separately contained programs. We welcome all clients for services related to alcohol and drug addiction, and in need of life enhancing recovery from co-occurring conditions. We expect that many clients presenting for treatment at our facility will have co-occurring issues and we will screen for these disorders. We provide options including integrated services related to alcohol and drug addiction and other behavioral health disorders. Our goal is to maintain an empathetic, ethical, responsive and professional attitude in all phases of care and we are dedicated to creating an environment of opportunity, choice and hope. All persons seeking services will be received in a welcoming and respectful manner regardless of presenting needs, symptoms or illness. We adhere to a "No Wrong Door" approach in order to remove barriers to care and services.

IOP provides supplemental, intensive, individualized psychotherapeutic treatment to clients struggling with a significant degree of mental and emotional distress. The sessions are 3 hours a day, 3 days a week. Their treatment sessions aren't meant to replace a regular therapist or psychiatrist. In fact, they help recommend clinicians to patients without one. They provide reinforcement, and help individuals suffering from serious pain or mental health disorders receive the extra care they need, without substantial disruptions to their lives.
