What Is Intensive Outpatient Therapy?

This outpatient counseling program focuses on our individualized group therapy program, especially with client diagnoses that indicate a high risk/high need classification.

While attending group therapy, clients are led to enhance their skills in establishing and maintaining a balanced lifestyle that is conducive to ongoing sobriety and recovery. The interaction between substance abuse, mental health, and criminal thinking is examined as our clients are educated and trained to identify and cope with the interpersonal processes that lead to chemical dependency.

The overall goal of the program is to stabilize the client in early recovery and assist them in preventing relapse and managing symptoms of mental illness.

The materials utilized in this program are based upon the Matrix Program© from Hazelden and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) by Dr. Marsha Linehan and Dr. Carol Moonshine.
