Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Programs
Our programs help patients understand addiction and develop the tools to overcome it.
While most patients don’t qualify for this program when first admitted, the Outpatient Program provides structure and education to help them reach recovery. After completion, you will be reassessed for our aftercare program.
In our Outpatient Program you are expected to attend:
- 1 medical visit per month – 30 minutes
- 1 group counseling session per week – 3 hours
- 1 individual counseling session per month – 60 minutes
- 1 (or less than one) case management session per month – 30 to 60 minutes
Intensive Outpatient Program
This program helps patients new to treatment and those needing a more personal level of counseling. It is especially helpful for patients who have experienced trauma and/or suffer from PTSD as we offer individual counseling sessions twice a month, or more upon request.
In our Intensive Outpatient Program you are expected to attend:
- 1+ patient medical visits per month – 30 minutes
- 3 group counseling sessions per week – 3 hours
- 2 individual counseling sessions per month – 60 minutes
- 1+ case management sessions per month – 30 to 60 minutes
Our programs are outpatient. That means at the end of the day you go home to your own bed.
If you show unhealthy recovery behaviors during either program—like failing to attend counseling, failing to abstain from substance use or failing to follow BrightView rules or procedures—you can be moved to a program with more support.
1. Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
After an initial health evaluation, we will prescribe safe withdrawal medication and a management plan to help ease your physical cravings so you can focus on recovery.
Our doctors will meet with you on a monthly basis to discuss your progress in treatment, answer questions related to your health, review your medications, and make changes as needed. Nurses and nurse practitioners will meet with you on an as-needed basis to address any additional medical needs.
2. Counseling & Therapy
Our fully-trained and professionally-licensed counselors will treat you with empathy and understanding. Individual Counseling will help you identify things you would like to work on and to set goals. They can help you process significant grief, anxiety, anger, guilt, shame, or any different combinations of emotions. Group Counseling is offered six days a week in the morning, afternoon and evening with the exception of Friday and Saturday evenings. This gives you time to share your thoughts and feelings about recovery, ask questions and get feedback from others who have been there.
Each session is led by a licensed counselor who will help you to:
- Recognize addiction as a disease
- Understand your own addiction
- Learn coping skills
- Identify triggers
- Avoid relapse
3. Social Support & Case Management
Our case managers are all fully-trained social workers and/or certified chemical dependency assistants. They can help you with housing, transportation, enrolling for food stamps, job training (especially helping and advocating for those with criminal backgrounds looking for jobs), child support, signing up for and maintaining Medicaid. They can even help with probation, legal and/or court issues.
We’ll help you understand that addiction is a chronic disease, how it affects your brain, and how we can fight it.Learn More
