The Outpatient Services (OPT) services consist of assessments, individual, group, spousal, family, and continuing care counseling. Choice of service is based on assessment of each client. Persons may enter OPT through self-referral or referral from a physician, family member, friend, employer, or other community agencies and organizations. In addition, OPT clients may enter directly through prevention and/or intervention programs.
The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) focuses on individuals who need more support than traditional outpatient therapy but do not need, or cannot take part in inpatient treatment. IOP provides treatment, a continuum of care and appropriate referrals to other community resources. IOP meets 9 hours each week over three days.
Medically Assisted Detox:
Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one\'s body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.
Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient\'s individual requirements.
Intervention services work to identify at an early stage those individuals who are at risk of experiencing problems caused by their use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. Following their identification through the school system, the criminal justice system, the workplace or other social systems, individuals are referred to specific intervention programs for educational and treatment services as appropriate.
Relapse Prevention Program is an integral part of the treatment program. Chemically dependent persons continue to need support after the formal therapeutic process is completed. This group focuses on enhancing skills needed to maintain abstinence. Group meets weekly.
Sober Living Homes:
Sober Living Houses (SLHs), aka sober homes or halfway houses, are safe, substance-free, supportive living facilities for those recovering from substance abuse. Ideal for those who\'ve just been through inpatient or outpatient treatment, SLHs are supervised environments with rules that support sobriety, such as curfews, shared chores, and therapeutic meetings. Residents are also often trained on life skills and coping skills to make it easier to transition into society. SLHs also provide a strong sense of community that can lead to the kind of deep and lasting connections with other sober individuals that supports a new, healthy lifestyle.
