Sober Techniques offers an Intensive Outpatient and a general Outpatient Program.
Both of these programs utilize 12 step programs, group and individual counseling, along with a mentorship relationship.
We are aware that addiction can often impede and challenge academic progress.
Because of this, we have several options in place for students who desire to continue their education while going through an addiction treatment program. Sober Techniques offers one-on-one therapy sessions to support clients in reaching their academic goals. We also offer classes and individual help with academic counseling, life skills, assistance with college applications, tutoring/study time, transportation to and from classes, registration guidance, assistance with the job search, and simulated interviews. It is our goal not only to help clients acheive sobriety but to thrive on an academic or professional career path.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Throughout the program, case managers will be in contact with family members each week, either in person or over the phone.
These conversations will serve to update the family on the client’s progress and also to address any legal issues. At this point, the courts and society both often prefer that addicted individuals attend an addiction recovery program over being incarcerated. Sober Techniques has long standing relationships with probation officers and the courts. The client’s case manager will be available to send weekly letters of attendance, progress reports, and letters of graduation to judges, probation officers, parole officers, employers, and EAP (Employee Assistance Program.)
Along with receiving treatment for psychological issues, our clients are also given the chance to participate in relapse prevention, budgeting techniques, strategies for sobriety, nutrition, building a resume, searching for a job, learning skills for relaxation, home life, and education. The case manager will help each client create a solid discharge plan. This is an important part of the treatment process and ensures that each client is supported through recovery and beyond with aftercare options and transitional help.
Throughout IOP there are 15 hours of group therapy per week. Clients go to the gym 5 days a week, and the program also focuses on the importance of proper exercise and diet. This dramatically lowers depression and anxiety in addition to helping establish regular sleep patterns. The client must be medically stable to participate in IOP.
Our recovery programs are all about teaching clients how important it is to have fun during recovery. Recreational therapy options during IOP include trampoline parks, golfing, surfing, go-karting, art, hiking, beach trips, and more. Throughout the course of the program, clients have the chance to go to the movies each weekend along with other outings.
