Expanding our services to include Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) is a natural extension of our programming; offering a full continuum of care from prevention-early intervention-outpatient counseling to intensive outpatient treatment meets the needs of students at-risk. IOP is a structured outpatient treatment program for students who have a diagnosis of substance abuse yet they can remain in the community and school. In our work the past 14 years, we have found that the sooner an adolescent receives an intervention in their substance abuse the less likely they are to continue their destructive substance abuse patterns. We know it is essential to intervene as soon as possible with relevant education, consistent support and structure. Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program (IOP): · Serve adolescents between the ages of 12 and 18. · 1.5 FTE counselor(s), with daily support, staffing and input from clinical supervisor(s), and other counselors. · Utilizing evidence based models and practices (CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (ACRA) and other EBP’s for population served), · Phase I: Treatment groups two hours per day – three days per week – for six weeks, (T-W-Thurs), with a Family Group three hours once per month on Saturday for adolescent and their parents, · Phase II: Continued care groups one hour once per week for twelve weeks.
