Expanded Outpatient Program for Adults
The Expanded Outpatient Program is for people 18 years of age or older focused on achieving sobriety or maintaining recovery when substance or alcohol abuse, drug or alcohol addiction, or substance use disorders and substance misuse are present.
This program offers an alternative to traditional and conventional intensive outpatient services, also known as Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP).
During their first two weeks of treatment, participants in the Expanded Outpatient Program attend three 90-minute group sessions per week. They also see a clinician twice each week.
After the first two weeks of intensive treatment, clients collaborate with their clinician on the treatment plan that best addresses their needs.
Ongoing services may include a blend of group therapy, individual counseling, and medication management or medication-assisted treatment (MAT).
This program allows clients to get services they need without committing to the predetermined time frames dictated by traditional Intensive Outpatient Programs.
It's an excellent option for individuals who have attended Intensive Outpatient Programs numerous times or do not require the arbitrary time commitment required by most Intensive Outpatient Programs.
This flexible treatment option also lets those who may be skeptical about treatment participate in counseling and other outpatient services in the way that feels most comfortable and safe to them.
