Outpatient Programs – Chemical Dependency

Treatment Overview

Outpatient Programs (IOP) are designed for adolescents who need organized treatment services but are able to do this within the context of their usual environment and daily activities. Treatment is received through the following group sessions:

  • Chemical Dependency Education Process Group
  • Social Work PyschoEducation Group
  • Family Education and Multifamily Process Group

There are 2 levels of care available for those participating in an outpatient program:

  • Intensive Outpatient Programming (IOP)
    • Patients at this level of care participate in 3-hour group sessions 3 evenings a week for approximately 7 weeks.
    • Individual and family therapy can also be provided at this level of care with therapists in one of our clinic locations.
  • Low Intensity Outpatient Programming (LIOP)
    • Patients at this level of care are seen in a group setting one or two times per week for ongoing care and maintenance.
    • Individual and family therapy can also be provided at this level of care with therapists in one of our clinic locations.

Treatment Goals

The treatment goals for Child and Adolescent Outpatient Services include:

  • Teach patients to use available family community and social support resources to avoid relapse
  • Further stabilize illness and behavior and allow more support and monitoring with less intensive structure
  • Learn skills and increase understanding necessary to resume basic occupational, educational or interpersonal functioning
  • Monitor and support the return to healthy work, social and family relationships
  • Transition successfully to clinic follow-up when appropriate
