Outpatient Program

After a someone successfully completes an Intensive Outpatient Program or Long Term Residential Program, they will meet with their counselor to determine what the next steps will look like. If they met all their goals in the IOP or Residential Program, their primary counselor would recommend the person continue on with a less intensive level of care or Outpatient Program.

Outpatient Program

Options may include:

  • Weekly or bi-weekly individual meetings with a therapist or psychologist.
  • Ongoing group therapy sessions.
  • Attendance at 12-step groups, Alcoholics Anonymous, (AA), Narcotics Anonymous, (NA)
  • Periodic check-ins by phone.
  • Drug testing.

Clients may now be referred to other community resources such as vocational training, family therapy, or medical care.

Staying clean/sober requires extensive effort, and most people who have been addicted to drugs or alcohol need to continue being involved in an ongoing care with accountability. Meeting with a therapist, counselor or support group helps a person stay motivated, work on relapse prevention skills, and help other people with their sobriety, all of which can help maintain abstinence.

An Outpatient Program is an opportunity to put into place all the recovery, life and other skills learned in a higher level of care while in a more independent living situation. While having the support and accountability from their counselor, peer coach and case management team. Someone can participate in our Outpatient Program anywhere from 8-26 weeks or as needed for their individual situation.
