Our IOP in New Hampshire members will also become familiar with the management of co-occurring symptoms. This will help them learn healthy and effective ways to facilitate self-care.

Program Schedule


Bonfire Recovery Intensive Outpatient Program:

Clients will be attending a three evening, three-hour program (M-W-Th, 5:15-8: 30 pm) for a four- week period in which they will be participating in didactic learning classes as well as group education and therapy. This model is intended for clients who desire structure in their early recovery effort that is beyond weekly individual counseling but less restrictive than residential programs to allow clients continued functioning in their day to day lives.

Completion of the projected four- week program is dependent upon the client’s progress as to be determined by clinicians working with both the client and the clinical team. Upon completion of the IOP, each client will be tailored an aftercare plan to meet their individual needs. Clients will be offered a weekly aftercare group at Bonfire to enhance on-going low-risk choices.

Researched-based outcomes indicate that clients who participate in a structured aftercare plan have 2-3 times better outcomes than a client who attempts the change without structured approaches!
