Alcohol and Drug abuse challenges can be destructive for the
abuser or addict, and for those who care about him or her.  
The most difficult challenge for someone who struggles with
alcohol or drugs can be to stop drinking or using.  A person's
brain and body can come to feel so strongly dependent on these substances      
that a person may feel that he or she has no control to overcome the
dependence.

Intensive Outpatient Programs
(IOP):
The IOP is a 3 day per week, (9 hours per week minimum) program that
includes extensive outpatient medical (psychiatric) supervision, individual and
family sessions, and groups.  The IOP is for those clients who have struggled
with alcohol or substance abuse and addiction, have tried other means of
recovery (such as a detox program or Narcotics Anonymous),
but the potential for relapse remains high.  
Our program uses a structured, evidence-based curriculum
that is highly effective in treatment.  
Monthly progress meetings with the Medical Treatment Team are required.
(12 week program minimum)

Often, there comes a point when persons with
alcohol and drug challenges can see how destructive
their use and abuse has become to themselves
and their loved ones.  Many seek treatment services
for their dependence, but can struggle with their treatment.  It is not
uncommon for many to drop-out of treatment.  Many will keep coming
back to try again.  It can be a lengthy recovery process, but those that
keep trying to reach recovery are often successful.

effective treatment services for clients with alcohol and-or substance
abuse challenges.
