Intensive Outpatient Programs
At Fellowship Hall, Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) is an abstinence-based program, open to adults 18 and older who are struggling with substance use disorder and are experiencing impairment in their daily functioning. IOP is designed for those who need a structured program to address their abuse/addiction issues while allowing them to continue to live and work in their own communities.
Our IOP provides education about addiction, relapse prevention, skill building, and support for sustained recovery based on a 12-step foundation, in the following format:
- Standard 8 week program
- Three day groups per week (Monday, Tuesday & Thursday 1-4pm)
- Three evening groups per week (Monday, Tuesday & Thursday 6-9pm)
- One individual therapy session per week
- Random monitoring of alcohol and drug use
Upon completion of the IOP program, guests step down to an Early Recovery Group (ERG), which meets every Wednesday evening from 6-7:30pm. ERG is a counselor facilitated support group. We know that alcoholism/addiction is a disease of isolation, so ongoing support is crucial to a successful recovery. Guests commit to 12 weeks of ERG, but have the option to continue for up to 2 years for therapeutic support.
Fellowship Hall offers traditional outpatient services to guests who have successfully completed one of our many programs. Families are also encouraged to participate in our outpatient programs by utilizing individual and family counseling sessions. Family members who have completed the 4 day family program may take advantage of these services.
All of our outpatient programs are designed to address problems associated with chemical dependencies and, if applicable, related mental health disorders. The goal is to help clients integrate a workable recovery program into daily life. Our outpatient services include individual, couples, and family counseling. Multiple treatment modalities can be used based on the particular circumstances. The outpatient therapist, along with the guest, will determine the frequency of meetings. Continuity of care is a vital element of a successful recovery, and our outpatient services allow guests to continue working with clinicians who understand substance use disorder. Outpatient services also offer psychiatric assessment and medication management.
