Our Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program was created for people with both a chemical dependency and a psychiatric diagnosis. Participants typically have difficulty maintaining abstinence, may have relapsed, may be at risk of hospitalization, or may be mandated to attend an intensive treatment program by the court or other entity. The program works to promote sobriety, gain a better understanding of substance abuse and mental illness, and develop a relapse prevention plan.
Adults receiving inpatient care can prepare for a successful transition to outpatient care and home by participating in the Intensive Outpatient Program . Adults with chemical dependency (CD) diagnosis will benefit following medical detoxification and will receive an individualized treatment plan that addresses thoughts, feelings, and behaviors contributing to addiction. They will also develop and implement a personal recovery and relapse prevention plan. Medications may be used as a supportive therapy. See below for more information on our CD treatment program.
Chemical Dependency Intensive Outpatient Program (CD IOP)
The Chemical Dependency Intensive Outpatient Program provides a supportive group for individuals with a diagnosis of substance abuse or dependence and who may also have a mental health diagnosis. Emphasis is placed on the effects of alcohol and other mood-altering drugs on one’s life, including mental health, and includes the development of relapse prevention skills and a related plan.
Those who participate:
- have been unsuccessful in maintain abstinence with the support of individual therapy and/or support groups.
- are required to attend an intensive substance abuse treatment program by the court, DHS, their employer, or other entity.
- have been discharged from an inpatient program or who, if left untreated could require hospitalization.
Meetings for the CD IOP are scheduled on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 4:00pm to 7:00pm. The group is facilitated by Bill List, LCSW.
