Continuum of Recovery Outpatient Treatments

What is an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?

An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provides a structured and supportive environment for individuals seeking treatment for substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. This level of care is designed for those who do not require 24-hour supervision but still need significant support. IOPs offer flexible scheduling to accommodate daily responsibilities, such as parenting, work or school, while ensuring access to comprehensive therapeutic services. Participants engage in individual and group therapy sessions, educational workshops, and holistic healing practices, all aimed at fostering long-term recovery and personal growth. The goal of an IOP is to help individuals build a strong foundation for a healthy, balanced, and fulfilling life.

Intensive Outpatient Program for Women

Benefits of IOP for Women in Recovery

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) offer a range of benefits specifically tailored to support women in recovery. One of the primary advantages is the flexibility these programs provide, allowing women to maintain their daily responsibilities such as work, school, and family care while receiving intensive treatment. IOPs also offer a supportive community where women can connect with others who share similar experiences, fostering a sense of belonging and mutual encouragement.

The therapy sessions in IOPs are designed to address issues that are particularly relevant to women, including trauma, self-esteem, and relationships. These programs often include specialized therapies, such as trauma-informed care, that help women process and heal from past experiences. Additionally, IOPs provide educational workshops and life skills training that empower women to build a healthier, more balanced life.

Furthermore, the structure of an IOP helps women develop a routine that promotes stability and consistency, which are crucial elements in maintaining long-term recovery. By participating in regular therapy sessions and group activities, women can continuously work on their recovery goals while receiving ongoing support and guidance from professionals and peers. This comprehensive approach ensures that women have the tools and resources they need to achieve lasting recovery and improve their overall well-being.

Key Components of Continuing Recovery with IOP at Anchored Tides

At Anchored Tides Recovery, our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is structured to support ongoing recovery through a comprehensive and multifaceted approach. The key components of our IOP include:

Our IOP is specifically designed to provide a flexible yet intensive level of care, making it an ideal option for women transitioning from residential treatment or those seeking a robust support system while managing their daily lives. By attending our IOP, women benefit from a continuum of care that bridges the gap between inpatient treatment and traditional outpatient services, ensuring they have the resources and support needed to achieve and maintain lasting recovery.

At Anchored Tides Recovery, we prioritize creating a compassionate and understanding environment where women can thrive. Our IOP is structured to continue recovery for substance use disorders, mental health disorders, and eating disorders to empower women, providing them with the tools, support, and community needed to navigate their recovery journey successfully.



What an amazing place Anchored Tides is. As Amy explained when we first visited, girls and women are an afterthought in many treatment programs, which often are founded and structured for boys and men. Anchored Tides’ holistic approach to ALL of the co-existing issues that girls and women face is groundbreaking, and so appreciated. They are wonderful people who do inspiring work and make the world a better place every day. I highly recommend their sober living and IOP. The founders have crucial and relevant lived experiences and care deeply, and they are amazing role models for all the women help.

Anchored tides saved my life. I had been to an inpantient facility before and my sobriety wasn’t lasting, until I found this place. I enjoyed the different groups and the staff and women are so welcoming. I felt so comfortable here, which I hadn’t felt before. I now have the confidence to succeed in life. Very thankful for this place.

Anchored Tides changed my life. After doing a 30 day inpatient program I came to ATR to expound upon the coping skills in inpatient treatment. Not only did I learn more coping skills, I discovered who I really was underneath all of the anxiety, addiction, and trauma: a woman with so much to offer the world. I would have not been able to thrive in sobriety without the deeply transformative inner work that ATR provided. Like most things in life, it’s what you make of it. If you come in with a positive outlook you are going to get a lot out of the program. I know I did!

Identifying the Root of Substance Use Disorder and Mental health

What IOP Treatment Addresses for Addiction and Mental Health Disorders

Our Women’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Anchored Tides Recovery is designed to address a broad spectrum of addiction and mental health disorders, offering comprehensive care that targets the root causes and provides sustainable solutions for recovery.

Addiction Treatment

Substance Use Disorders: Our IOP provides targeted treatment for various substance use disorders, including alcohol, opioids, prescription medications, and illicit drugs. Through evidence-based therapies, we help women understand the underlying factors contributing to their addiction, develop coping mechanisms, and build a solid foundation for long-term sobriety.

Dual Diagnosis: Many women struggling with addiction also face co-occurring mental health disorders. Our IOP addresses both conditions simultaneously, ensuring that each woman receives integrated care that promotes holistic healing. This approach helps to prevent relapse and supports overall mental wellness.

Relapse Prevention: Our program includes relapse prevention strategies that empower women to identify triggers, manage cravings, and develop a proactive plan to maintain their recovery. By focusing on long-term strategies, we aim to equip women with the tools they need to sustain their sobriety.

Mental Health Disorders

Depression: For women dealing with depression, our IOP offers therapies that target the symptoms and underlying causes of this condition. We use a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and other evidence-based approaches to help women manage their depression and improve their quality of life.

Anxiety Disorders: Our program provides specialized care for women struggling with various forms of anxiety, including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety, and more. Through therapeutic interventions and holistic approaches, we help women reduce their anxiety levels and develop healthier coping mechanisms.

Bipolar Disorder: Women with bipolar disorder receive tailored treatment plans that address both the manic and depressive phases of this condition. Our goal is to stabilize mood swings, improve emotional regulation, and enhance overall functioning through a combination of medication management and therapy.

Eating Disorders: Our IOP includes specialized programs for women with eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, body dysmorphia, and binge eating disorder. We provide a supportive environment where women can work on their relationship with food, body image, and self-esteem, promoting healthier habits and attitudes.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Many women in our program have experienced trauma that contributes to their mental health challenges. Our trauma-informed care approach helps women process and heal from traumatic experiences, reducing the impact of PTSD on their daily lives.

Personality Disorders: Women with personality disorders receive comprehensive care that focuses on improving interpersonal relationships, emotional regulation, and self-perception. Our therapeutic interventions are designed to help women navigate the complexities of their condition and achieve greater stability.

By addressing these addiction and mental health disorders within our IOP, Anchored Tides Recovery provides a comprehensive, supportive environment where women can heal, grow, and thrive. Our integrated approach ensures that each woman receives the personalized care she needs to achieve lasting recovery and improve her overall well-being.

Effects of Addiction and Recovery on Family and Friends

Addiction profoundly impacts not only the individual struggling with substance use but also their family and friends. During active addiction, relationships often become strained due to behaviors such as lying, stealing, and neglecting responsibilities, which can lead to mistrust, anger, and emotional distress. Families may experience financial difficulties, legal issues, and social isolation as they attempt to cope with their loved one’s addiction. The constant worry and fear for the addicted person’s safety can cause significant stress and anxiety among family members and friends.

Recovery, while a positive step, also brings challenges and adjustments. As the individual begins their journey to sobriety, family and friends need to navigate their own emotions, which may include relief, hope, skepticism, and lingering resentment. Effective communication and setting healthy boundaries become crucial during this period. Family therapy and support groups can be invaluable, providing a space for everyone to heal, learn about the nature of addiction, and develop strategies to support their loved one while taking care of their own well-being.

Ultimately, recovery can lead to the restoration of trust and the rebuilding of stronger, healthier relationships. With time and effort, families and friends can move past the damage caused by addiction, fostering a supportive environment that promotes lasting sobriety and mutual growth.

5 Goals of Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

  1. Achieve and Maintain Sobriety: The primary goal of an IOP is to help individuals achieve and maintain sobriety by providing structured support, therapeutic interventions, and education on addiction and recovery.
  2. Develop Coping Strategies: IOPs aim to equip participants with effective coping mechanisms to handle stress, triggers, and emotional challenges without resorting to substance use. This includes teaching techniques for managing cravings and avoiding relapse.
  3. Enhance Personal Accountability: Encouraging personal responsibility and accountability is a key goal, helping individuals to take ownership of their recovery journey. This includes setting personal goals, monitoring progress, and being proactive in seeking help and support.
  4. Improve Mental Health: Addressing co-occurring mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and trauma is essential. IOPs provide integrated treatment plans that focus on improving overall mental well-being alongside substance use recovery.
  5. Build a Supportive Network: Fostering a sense of community and building a strong support network is crucial. IOPs facilitate connections with peers, family, and support groups to ensure participants have ongoing emotional and practical support throughout their recovery.

Katie van Heerden

Clinical Therapist

I am Katie van Heerden, a licensed marriage and family therapist, currently conducting individual and group therapy at ATR using CBT and EMDR modalities. My passion for working with those struggling with addiction and mental health is a personal one. I, myself, grew up in a family system of addiction and mental health issues with little knowledge of what to do or how to recover. This drove me to further my education in mental health disorders, first by obtaining my BA in psychology from Cal State University Fullerton, then my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. While the knowledge I have obtained in school is extensive, my personal journey through life and all of its struggles have led me to the conclusion that anyone can recover if given 2 things: resources and support. When asked what keeps me going in this field, after 10+ years, I typically respond; “I am merely a farmer. I plant the seeds, nourish when necessary, and give space to allow growth.” Watching clients transform into better versions of themselves is not only rewarding but inspiring. It is a “job” I never take for granted.

Tracy Dunn

Interventionist / Relationships & Co-Dependency

Tracy Dunn is a National Interventionist and Addiction Coach who has received training at the Crossroads Recovery Coaching Academy of Seattle Washington and The Addiction Academy in Miami Florida. As the daughter of Roger Dunn of the Roger Dunn Golf Stores, Tracy knows all too well the dramatic impact that fame and addiction can have on the family system. Her professional training partnered with over 32 years of sobriety has led Tracy to be deeply committed to both saving and changing the lives of those struggling with addiction and alcoholism and their families.

As a group facilitator, she works collaboratively with her clients to help them focus on the action they will need to take to recognize the vision they will have for themselves. As an interventionist, she has helped many families to overcome the paralyzing grip of addiction by teaching accountability, compassion, and the other tools needed to break the cycle of addiction and maintain sobriety. Tracy works with the media, treatment facilities, interventionists, therapists, and addiction psychiatrists and consults with treatment facilities. Her dedication to saving lives has given a dynamic voice of recovery to those who had previously given up hope, and the belief that they are able to create their own successes.

William’s talent as a singer/songwriter, passion for the healing power of music, and the struggles of his past make him an outstanding program administrator for Rock to Recovery.

Bunny & Murphy

Registered Emotional Support Animals

Bunny is a 3yo male French Bulldog and Murphy is a 6yo female Shiba Inu. Both of these pups have been raised at Anchored Tides and grew up handing out love and support to our clients. They have the wonderful ability to sense when someone needs a little extra love, some playful puppy time, or just a companion to sit and hold space while they are processing something. 

Murphy’s favorite treatment activities are Lunch, Reiki, Process group, and sitting in on individual sessions. Bunny’s favorite activities are Lunch, DBT, and also sitting in on individual sessions. When they aren’t working, Murphy likes to play with her little brother (who is not a support animal), go on hikes, dig holes, sleep and eat. During Bunny’s time off, he likes to destroy squeaky toys, play with his nerf dog gun, and sleep.

They (and we) believe that animals are essential in providing emotional support. Studies have shown that some of the benefits of having an ESA include enhancing calm and relaxation, alleviating loneliness, enhancing social engagement and interaction, normalizing heart rate and blood pressure, and reducing stress, pain, anxiety, and depression. They are an important part of the holistic approach at ATR to make everyone feel loved and comfortable as they walk through their recovery journey.

Hillary, an Orange County local, has been working in the field of addiction for over a
decade and has been in recovery herself for over 13 years. Coming from a broken place with nowhere to go but up, Hillary can relate to clients on a deeper level with compassion and understanding.

Hillary is currently an undergrad at the University of Phoenix with a BS in Business and working on a master’s degree in healthcare administration. Hillary not only enjoys being part of the Anchored Tides family, but showing up as a wife, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend to those around her.

Markie Maneval

Operations Manager - RADT-1

Like many who have struggled with addiction, Markie’s journey to sobriety was no straightforward path. As a Tulane University student and intern for the NASA Stennis Space Center, she was on her way to a successful life! Personal struggles and watching her brother also struggle and lose his battle with drugs and alcohol only drove her deeper into addiction. Her drug and alcohol abuse continued to grow out of control until she finally realized it was time to surrender and get help. She was tired of living on the streets. She was tired of hurting her loved ones. She was tired of how much she hated herself.

She now has over five years of sobriety and is a strong believer in the ability to transform the future by making positive and healthy changes. Today, Markie has over five years of sobriety and has worked in the drug and alcohol treatment industry for over 4 years. She is a strong believer in the ability to transform the future by making positive and healthy changes. She is passionate about the work and the impact she makes on her community. Markie recently joined the Anchored Tides Recovery Team and is excited to help women begin their journey into sobriety!

Becca Edge, CEO/Co-Founder

Rebecca Edge

CEO / Co-Founder

Becca Edge is originally from Birmingham, Alabama. She is no stranger to mental health and substance abuse issues in her family, and she herself also struggled with addiction and moved to California to commit herself to treatment. She has been in long-term recovery since 2010. After much success in the corporate world, Rebecca started a sober living home as a “passion project” to provide women with a safe place as they re-enter the world as sober members of society. She noticed that there weren’t many aftercare programs dedicated to women’s sobriety or supporting them with the various co-occurring disorders that pop up once women are free from drugs and alcohol. So in 2016, Rebecca partnered with Amy to create a safe, therapy-focused place where women can heal from their addictions, trauma, and other issues while growing into who they were always meant to be. Becca is passionate about helping women realize their worth and supporting/helping them navigate the next steps of their lives, all while helping them feel secure on their road to long-term recovery.
