Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program

What is SAIOP?
  • SAIOP stands for Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program. While traditional inpatient treatment centers have been the norm, SAIOP offers a flexible, outpatient alternative. At BHIC, we provide Charlotte's community with comprehensive substance abuse and addiction outpatient programs.

Differences between SAIOP and Inpatient Treatment:
  • There are significant distinctions between SAIOP and inpatient programs. SAIOP clients take responsibility for their recovery journey, benefiting from an indirect support system. In contrast, inpatient centers offer more intensive supervision. Both approaches focus on substance abuse counseling, addiction counseling, and lifestyle management to prevent relapse.

Why Choose SAIOP?
  • SAIOP's unique approach invests significant time in clients, providing a comprehensive support system. The program typically spans ten weeks, requiring a commitment of at least nine hours a week. SAIOP tailors programs to each individual, ensuring a holistic approach to addiction recovery. Counselors continuously adapt to maximize effectiveness, aiming to eliminate substance abuse entirely.

SAIOP's 90-hour program in ten weeks encompasses various services, including:

  • Individual counseling and support

  • Family counseling and training

  • Biochemical tests to detect recent drug use

  • Group counseling and support

Is SAIOP Right for You?
