What is the Intensive Outpatient Program?
Our intensive outpatient program is an ongoing chemical dependency treatment program with a strong 12-step philosophy. The program offers a flexible schedule of treatment allowing patients to live at home and maintain a work schedule whenever possible. The program provides essential education and treatment services to help prevent relapse of chemical dependency symptoms and to bridge the gap between Partial Hospitalization and 12-step recovery maintenance.
What services are provided?
Our treatment includes a psychiatric assessment; medical assessment when indicated; medication management; patient and family education and support around behaviors and diagnoses; three hours of education and interactive group therapy per treatment day and ongoing treatment and discharge planning. The patient is required to attend 12 step meetings a minimum of three nights each week.
What are the hours of the program?
Intensive Outpatient Day Program: Monday, Wednesday & Friday: 7:30am – 11:45am.
Patients have hospital-recognized holidays off.
