Our IOP Programs have specialized curriculums to help our clients learn the coping skills they need to manage their unique personal and professional stressors to maintain optimal health and wellbeing and a lifestyle congruent with sobriety. Our programs include both individual and group therapy, incorporating CBT, DBT, Meditation, Neuro-Plasticity, Positive Psychology and Healthy Lifestyle Interventions to name a few. We hold our clients accountable with substance testing. Typically, our programs are 10 hours a week, for about 10 weeks. Once clients show enough progress and meet program criteria, they can transition to our outpatient program.
Our Outpatient Programs are designed for clients who are stable, have previously attended a higher level of care treatment program and have experience with sobriety. Most of these clients are stepping down from IOP, are in need of a refresher of coping skills, or are in need of extra sober support and accountability to maintain their sobriety. Our programs include both individual and group therapy, reviewing several coping skills previously taught in IOP. We hold our clients accountable with substance testing. Typically, our programs are 4 hours a week, for 10 weeks. Clients must be able to demonstrate successful use of coping skills and meet certain program criteria in order to become a PRO GRADUATE.

During the Pandemic, there have been too much loss and tragedy that could have been prevented. As employees were sent to work from home, no one thought about the people who were early in recovery. The ones who maybe were separated or just divorced, going through a custody battle, with few friends, feeling completely alone and isolated. But wait, alcohol was always a good friend and provided happiness and joy! And now, you could order it online and have it delivered. ( OR ) The manager who was starting to miss some of his deadlines for major projects. Ever since he started working from home, his work ethic started to decline. The company was understanding at first due to the big adjustment. Before transitioning to work from home, he had a big office suite with an assistant. Once he moved home, he had to share his office with his daughter who sat across from him as she attended virtual school. He had to help her with her homework everyday which made him feel more like her teacher, than her parent. His wife, came home exhausted and usually wasn’t much help around the house which left him with most of the responsibilities. The manager was starting to see his marriage differently. After about a month, the company had a meeting with the manager and put him on an improvement plan. The manager who already suffered from depression and anxiety took this very personally.
Both of these scenarios are based on true stories. Unfortunately, both ended tragically and could have easily been prevented. This is a therapist’s worst nightmare! It made me realize I want to do more for our clients! This is the tricky part.
