Recovery Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program

Our Recovery Program offers men and women a safe and compassionate environment to learn:

  • What it means to create and live a sober life
  • Coping skills and strategies that support sobriety and well-being
  • To recognize, understand and effectively manage triggers and cravings that lead to relapse
  • Break the cycle of addiction

The Recovery Program provides specialized treatment for addiction, as well as co-occurring mental health issues. You will receive education, learn and practice coping, abstinence and relapse prevention skills, as well as develop family and recovery community support, including Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

Recovery Program Details

You will receive eight to twelve weeks of intensive outpatient therapy, education and support.

Therapy groups meet Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday evening group is designed to bring you, your family and friends together to enhance understanding of addiction, treatment and recovery.

You will receive weekly individual therapy. Family therapy is available and strongly recommended.

Psychiatric evaluation and medication management services are available and are an integrated part of the Recovery Program. 

Following successful completion of the Recovery Program, we recommend that you attend our weekly After Care group, which meets Thursdays  from 1:00 to 2:30 PM. We recommend a 12 week commitment to reinforce your recovery. The After Care group is not an insurance covered service and therefore is an out-of-pocket expense per group session.

Most insurance policies provide coverage for intensive outpatient chemical dependency treatment. We work closely with your insurance company to secure authorization for the treatment you need. A 60% discount is available if you choose our self-pay option. Contact the Patient Business Affairs office for details at 303-415-4700.
