Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

All too often, mental health services are impersonal, cold and methodical. They lack spirit and feel contrived. At Barn Life Recovery, we’ve cultivated a nurturing, inspiring, and safe community that gives you the foundation needed to mend your body, soul and mind.

What is an IOP?

Our IOP (intensive outpatient program) is a form of mental health treatment that closes the gap between too little and too much. Sometimes inpatient treatment is too extreme and individual behavioral health therapy isn’t enough. Our half-day program steps boldly into this gap.

Powered by clinically-backed therapies and tools, we provide you the time and space needed to restore yourself. Continue to live your day-to-day life while you intently focus on your emotional, physical, spiritual and mental wellbeing.

When Do I Need an IOP?

Our intensive outpatient program is best for adults struggling with mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and dependencies that do not require detoxification.

We have proven success among clients who previously received mental health services with little success. From the veteran diagnosed with PTSD and a co-occurring substance use disorder to the panic attack-ridden mother or corporate employee – Barn Life welcomes you.

What to Expect


Through free community events we provide an opportunity to explore our facility, our philosophy and our approach to healing the mind-body-soul connection. When you’re ready, we make the admissions process simple and effortless by dealing with your insurance company directly.


While in our program, you’ll spend a few hours a day, Monday – Friday, surrounded by a caring community receiving innovative and comprehensive mental health treatment. Reflecting eons of knowledge, our therapies incorporate eastern philosophies to understand the cause of our suffering, our place in the world and the human condition as a whole.


Throughout our mental health program, you’ll master relationship, vocational and life skills in aftercare groups. Inevitably, when it’s time to start the next chapter, you will stand atop a rebuilt foundation and feel grounded, focused and calm. With our community remaining a lifetime resource every step of the way.

Our Approach

The word “holistic” is rooted in a philosophy that states that parts of a whole are interdependent. This means the whole is only as valuable as its individual parts. No single therapy, therapist, or treatment can heal one’s mental well-being. However, when we approach mental health by looking at the whole of the person’s body mind and soul, we are able to more effectively help.

Hear From Those We've Impacted

Barn Life is uniquely special. As someone who has had long stretches of sobriety with "traditional" communities and methods, Barn Life stepped in when I started struggling during the pandemic and said "traditional" methods failed to help.The staff here are exceptional. This is a truly subjective statement, but it is my honest opinion that the people from the owner (Hi Matt!) to EVERYONE else works there because they believe in the work and want to share the tools they found.Barn Life and their little sibling, Peer Mental Wellness were the launchpad from a shell of an existence to person with self-love/respect, and a life-mission of personal development.

Barn life is probably one of the most amazing facilities you could ever attend when it comes to mental illness. This was the first place that popped up when I was searching for help and I’m so thankful that it did. The environment is very therapeutic, the staff is awesome, and the group discussions and activities were so helpful in me understanding what I was experiencing. Do not hesitate to be a part of this place. It’s literally a game changer. I was only there for 6 weeks but I wished I stayed at least 6 months. Ever since returning home, I’ve been much happier and my perspective has changed dramatically. I’ve done things and participated in events at my college that I never thought I would be able to do. This place is truly amazing and I’m forever grateful that I found this place.

My daughter has been at Barn Life Recovery now for two months. It was my last resort to send her 9 hours away from me. She has been in drug and mental health rehabs in and out for two years. This was my last stitch effort to save my daughter and get her back to herself. Alyssa and I spoke multiple times before deciding. Their willingness to do everything for her and the different teams they have work with them is amazing. My daughter is happy again and clean and sober. She loves it there in their outpatient program. They restore your faith in humanity. They help restore someone who is broken in so many places to themselves. They have put the light back in my daughters eyes. They are committed to helping each person who truly wants the help. They assist in helping them get jobs and be responsible members of society. I recommend their program to anyone wanting to recover from drug, alcohol and mental health.Thank you to all the people at Barn Life who have made my daughter smile and bring the light back to her eyes. I am truly grateful.DawnaLee
