Outpatient Programs

Las Vegas Outpatient Addiction Treatment Programs

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

The partial hospitalization program at Desert Hope provides substance use disorder treatment at least 5 days per week for at least 6 hours per day. This highly structured treatment program includes individual therapy, group therapy, and more. Partial hospitalization is the most intensive outpatient program.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

The Desert Hope IOP provides planned and structured outpatient substance addiction treatment services for at least three (3) hours per day and at least three (3) days per week. We provide a range of treatment services that includes individual, family, and group therapy. In addition, we offer psychoeducation, medication management, and adjunctive therapies.

IOP clients do not require extensive medical monitoring and typically do not have serious, uncontrolled medical issues. IOP treatment is offered as a stand-alone level of care or a transitional level of care, such as following residential treatment.

Outpatient Program (OP)

Desert Hope Outpatient Center’s regular outpatient program provides an option that is more flexible and less intensive than the partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs.

Our clients play an important role in decisions about their treatment and collaborate with their treatment provider(s) to determine treatment objectives that are realistic. Since each individual entering our doors has their own experiences and needs, the client’s treatment provider(s) take into consideration many factors when developing his/her treatment plan.

Treatment Schedules

Treatment schedules will vary. IOP clients are typically scheduled to attend three (3) consecutive hours of onsite treatment per day, 3–4 days per week. PHP clients participate in treatment at least 5 days per week for at least 6 hours per day. Regular outpatient appointments are determined on an individual client basis. Hours of operation for Desert Hope Outpatient Center are 7:00AM – 9:00PM PST/PDT, Monday through Saturday.

Co-occurring Disorder Treatment

Our treatment programs are designed for individuals with substance use disorders with or without co-occurring mental health disorders. However, depending on the severity of a person’s mental health problems, Desert Hope may not be an appropriate fit. You can contact AAC and ask if Desert Hope might be the right fit for you or your loved one.

Individuals who are identified as having co-occurring mental illness will receive treatment that addresses both the addiction and co-occurring mental illness. Research indicates that integrated treatment that addresses both mental illnesses and substance use disorders likely provides better results for individuals with co-occurring disorders.
