Intensive Outpatient Program

Every individual struggling with addiction has unique needs – whether that addiction is to alcohol or other drugs. Some individuals need a more structured and intensive recovery program and require a significant amount of support while they are obtaining treatment. For this reason, North Central Health Care offers a Substance Use Intensive Outpatient program that provides that structure and increased support while integrating participants back into their daily life.

Intensive Treatment for Those Who Need It

The Intensive Outpatient program provides a group setting for individuals struggling with addiction – whether that addiction is to alcohol or other drugs. The program is designed for those who need more intensive substance use treatment than typical outpatient services, but do not require the level of care provided in the Day Treatment program.

Each group session lasts 2 hours, meets 3 times per week and runs 8 weeks in length. Individual sessions will also be scheduled.

The Intensive Outpatient program utilizes interventions and techniques which may include:

  • Group Therapy
  • Individual Therapy
  • Rational-Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Substance Abuse Education (Alcohol and Other Drugs)
  • Co-Occurring Education
  • 12-Step Recovery Philosophy

A Team Approach

All individuals are treated by a team of skilled individuals trained in multiple disciplines. This team works together to review and assess the individual’s progress and to adjust the individual care plan as needed. After successful completion of the Substance Use Intensive Outpatient Program, each client is set up with appropriate aftercare treatment with a substance use counselor as well as an introduction to the recovery community.
