OUR PROGRAM LEVELS

Level I – Outpatient Treatment (OP) – The program encompasses organized outpatient treatment services which may be delivered in a variety of settings. In Level I services, addiction treatment staff, including addition-credentialed physicians, provide professionally directed screening, evaluation, treatment and ongoing recovery and disease management services. These services are provided in regularly scheduled sessions of (usually) fewer than 9 (nine) contact hours a week.

  1. Outpatient Services Criteria Promotes Greater Access to Care for:
    1. Patients with co-occurring substance use and physical and mental health conditions.
    2. Individuals not interested in recovery who are mandated into treatment, and others who previously only had access to care if they agreed to intensive periods of primary treatment.
    3. Individuals who are in early stages of readiness to change through knowledge and application of evidence-based therapies such as motivational interviewing (MI), motivational enhancement therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, and stages of change work.
    4. Patients in early recovery who need education about addiction and person centered treatment.
    5. Patients in ongoing recovery who need monitoring and continuing disease management.
  2. Goals Include:
    1. Clinical psychotherapy and support services, including involvement of family members and significant others
    2. Supportive, caring and sensitive environment and staff whose mission is to provide the utmost quality of care
    3. Medication stabilization, as necessary
    4. Preparing the patient for ongoing treatment of their substance dependence in a lower level of care
    5. Patient transition to higher phases and continuation of treatment

Level II – Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) – Our intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) generally provide 9 (nine) or more hours of structured programming per week consisting of counseling and education about substance-related and mental health problems. The patient’s need for psychiatric and medical services are addressed through consultation and referral arrangements if the patient is stable and only requires maintenance monitoring.
