Outpatient Services

Outpatient Services

Outpatient programs provide a therapeutic, structured environment that helps individuals address a broad range of psychological and interpersonal challenges. Using group therapy and psychoeducation groups, each program helps patients improve daily functioning and enables them to return home each day and maintain important family and community relationships.

Group therapy facilitates personal growth and change through the exploration of life challenges and stressors with the benefits of receiving multiple perspectives, support, and encouragement. Psychoeducation groups teach a variety of skills for the improvement of functioning and emotional regulation. Topics may include stress and anger management, communication skills, boundaries, relapse prevention, and medication and illness education.

The Chemical Dependency Intensive Outpatient Program for Adults (CDIOP) further emphasizes the understanding of addiction, substance relapse prevention, and an introduction to the 12-step philosophy.
