INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM

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.

PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT

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.


PROPER TREATMENT


When a new client enrolls into our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), a case manager walks him or her through a primary psychiatric evaluation. Our professional clinical team will address any physical or psychological issues that need to be addressed and treated. Clients are assigned an individual case manager and a therapist who will facilitate weekly meetings designed to assess the effectiveness of the program and make any needed changes. Within the first week of treatment, a counselor will administer an Addiction Severity Index assessment in order to identify which areas of the client’s life needs to be addressed during treatment. With the results from this assessment, a customized addiction treatment program is created to serve as the client’s guidebook through recovery.

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.

Treatment Length

Our IOP treatment programs establish goals to support sustained sobriety. Length of treatment can range from 30 to 60 or even 90 days. Oftentimes a 6 month program will be approved for those needing a greater amount of intensive care and support. Treatment duration depends on the severity of addiction and history of substance abuse in each client. Transportation is provided to and from treatment, and nutritious food is prepared daily by our private chefs.

Workbook

The program includes completing assignments such as a helpful workbook on self improvement. It helps clients to think about and address key goals and assess their current mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical state. There is also a timeline and reflection space for how addiction has impacted the client’s life, a reflection on life before and after treatment, goals for the future, and uplifting key principles to live by .

Daily Schedule

The daily schedule at Sober Techniques includes multiple activities, counseling sessions, educational classes, exercise time, and group meetings. This full schedule allows clients to stay motivated, continue to learn, and make further recovery progress each day.

Progress Letters

The program director and experienced staff at Sober Techniques are available to write to judges, probation officers, parole officers, and court systems to inform them about the progress the client has made while in recovery. They can also go over the evaluations, therapy, and testing results that each client has completed.
