Reviews at a Glance
- Outpatient Program
Our Outpatient Program is recommended as a second stage of treatment or treatment for individuals returning home after inpatient treatment. It’s an ideal structure for an addict who has a plan of recovery and needs to maintain accountability. It is recommended to those who are looking for extra tools to maintain sobriety and to increase their chances of long lasting abstinence from substance abuse. OP is offered as a 30, 60, or 90 day program. During this time, patients will attend sessions 3 days per week.
- Individual Therapy Sessions
Individual counseling with an addiction counselor is just as important as our group therapy. Private, individual counseling sessions give the patient the opportunity to express anything they may be uncomfortable sharing at a group level. It provides the chance to process any unresolved grief or anger from past events or trauma, or just to vent about frustrations he or she may be having during treatment. This gives the counselor the opportunity to really talk with the patient on an intimate, safe and supportive level, so that they may gauge the progress he or she is making. Counseling also allows for the opportunity to address the psychological component of his or her dependency. This is one of the key areas that keep an addict from using drugs or alcohol again following their treatment program. Our patients meet for individual counseling weekly. This service is also offered to any person who is looking to enhance their recovery process and grow to their highest potential. Counseling can be beneficial to anyone dealing with emotional stress or any number of issues surrounding cognitive processing.
