Our Intensive outpatient program is a year-long program divided into three 8-week treatment stages and 6 months of after care. Throughout the substance abuse treatment program, participants work in group and individual counselling sessions, with evening and morning availability for scheduling convenience.
Participants must attend two ninety-minute group sessions either three or four times a week.
This first stage includes:
- 12-step education.
- Relapse prevention.
- Basic group-therapy work.
- Chemical dependency education.
- Family education and multi-family group.
The purpose of this second phase is to develop an ongoing personal recovery program separate from treatment. Participants must attend two ninety-minute sessions, three times a week plus one family session. In this stage, we identify and begin to resolve new and chronic obstacles to recovery.
Participants in this final group-session phase will continue addressing daily recovery issues. Simultaneously the personal skills, family support, and community resources developed over the healing process will be used to help participants enjoy a satisfying and sober lifestyle.
After-care and family education
Participants who have completed our twelve to sixteen-week alcohol and drug program graduate to our aftercare program. Weekly and semi-monthly group meetings address day-to-day and long-term recovery issues while maintaining the group support.
Our program also includes a weekly family education group to educate and involve family members in treatment. Participant families can learn more about the recovery process, including our drug education, 12-step study, relapse prevention and recovery process classes.
