A 3-Phase, Step-Down Program

Phase 1 (IOP)

*Designed for clients who have completed at 30 day program or those who are unable to commit to a 30 day stay.

This phase consists of approximately 12-24 sessions, 3 times per week for 3 hours per session, and an additional session for Life Skills is included.  This phase is intensive as it helps the client transition to a life without the use of alcohol and drugs. Focus is on creating a stable pattern of living through education, process groups and individualized treatment planning. It is during this phase that clients are expected to obtain a sponsor, join a home group and have a firm system in place for handling cravings and new relationships.

Phase 2 (OP)

This phase consists of approximately 16 sessions, twice a week for 1.5 hours per session. This phase helps the client gain better insight into their use and the effects their disease has had on personal growth, family and relationships. Through group process they learn to deal with everyday stress and ongoing issues in recovery.

* A 45 minute individual session may be added.

Phase 3 (OP)

This phase consists of approximately 8 sessions, once a week for 1 hour per session. In this phase clients continue to work on their continuing personal needs. They begin to let go of treatment and begin to outline a personal plan for continued growth. During this time clients will be expected to begin service work in their home groups and to prepare for sponsorship of others.
