ARS RESOURCES Outpatient Drug Treatment (IOP/SOP Programs)

Drug abuse effects not only the person using, but those who care and love for that person as well. According to, the Houston area has seen a recent increase in mental distress frequency, drug use and suicides, exacerbating the existing mental health challenges across nine-county region. While the number of mental health care workers per resident has improved, our region’s access to professional mental health help remains significantly lower than the national rate.

Our IOP/SOP treatment in Houston is aimed at reducing the frequency by not only addressing drug abuse, but also the mental health issues that lead to drug and alcohol use.

Many of the client in our groups are required to complete a drug counseling program as part of a legal stipulation. Nevertheless, both of our programs are staff with a licensed therapist. Meaning, even though you may be required to complete a course, you are ACTUALLY in therapy. Our clients make the most of this opportunity while participating in SOP and IOP, they learn to:

  • Use their talents to overcome alcohol and drug use
  • See how their use is negatively affecting people around them
  • Learn their use is keeping from reaching your potential
  • Break the cycle between relapse and sobriety
  • Adjust to the lifestyle change of sobriety
  • Rebuild relationships and planning for a better tomorrow.
