  • Men and Women
  • Treatment on Demand

Adult Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) offers patients in this level of care four 3– hour sessions per week and upon completion of treatment plan goals, the ability to transition to three sessions per week until all treatment goals have been met. In addition to random breathalyzer and urine drug screenings, patients are required to attend community support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous and obtain a sponsor for additional support.

Traditional Outpatient Group (OP) is three sessions weekly. Adults referred to this program have experienced some, but few negative consequences from their use or have had a brief relapse. This program also supports those who have completed IOP and are transitioning into a less intensive program. The focus during this program includes education, self-diagnosis, defense mechanisms, development of a sober support network (AA/NA) and relapse prevention.

DWI Alcohol Treatment Program is a state-certified/MVA-approved education program that meets once a week for 26 weeks.

DWI 12-Hour Alcohol Education Program is a state-certified/MVA-approved program that meets once a week for 12 weeks. Education focuses on identifying drinking patterns, the problems of drinking and driving, and alternatives to being on the highway if you consume alcohol.

Starting Treatment

Before starting any outpatient program, all individuals (unless referred by an inpatient facility) must have an evaluation completed onsite by one of our clinicians to determine appropriate level of care. If needed, evaluations can usually be conducted within one business day.

If for our program is not the appropriate level of care, the patient will be referred to a suitable program. To schedule an initial evaluation or for more information about our programs, please call 301-739-7748.
