Frequently Asked Questions

Both the outpatient program and the intensive outpatient program (IOP) are designed to help and support you throughout your addiction recovery through a variety of therapies and treatments. Both programs include group therapy, individual therapy, and holistic therapies. The IOP program is intended for those who require a higher level of support, as determined by an intake evaluation. Those in the IOP program receive more hours of group therapy as part of their more intensive healing process.

In order to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you, we will take your medical history, perform a urine and/or breath analysis, conduct a psycho-social evaluation, and more. The more information we have about your overall health and wellness, as well as your medical and addiction history, the better we will be able to tailor a treatment plan for your specific needs.

Yes. You can work, live at home, and maintain your regular personal life while you are part of our outpatient or intensive outpatient programs. You will need to factor in the time you spend at the outpatient treatment facility when deciding how many hours you will work.

Every person is unique in their needs and in how long it takes them to heal. The average amount of time people spend in one of our programs is about two months, but it can take less or more time, depending on the individual.

While we are focused on addiction recovery, we understand that anxiety, depression, and other mental health disorders often go hand-in-hand with addiction.

There’s no single set of time that can definitively be the moment when an addiction is broken. So many variables are involved, including how long the person is addicted for and what they are addicted to. That said, it will not take less than several weeks, or even several months. Despite the road to recovery being a long one, it is worthwhile and will ultimately bring healing, peace, and happiness.

If you notice changes in your loved one’s psychological or emotional state, if they are isolating from others or getting into sudden heated arguments, or if they are exhibiting physical struggles like stumbling, losing weight, or dilated pupils, they may be suffering from addiction. If you ever suspect that your loved one is dealing with substance abuse or alcohol addiction, give us a call and speak to one of our professionals. We will help you determine if you need to have your loved one evaluated.

There’s no easy way to approach a loved one about their substance abuse, but it’s important to do so carefully and thoughtfully. Speaking directly without beating around the bush or avoiding saying feelings outright is a recommended approach. Make sure to give your loved one space to digest what you are saying and respond without feeling pushed or pressured to make a decision immediately on what to do next. It’s also important to be clear about your boundaries so your loved one knows you are there to support them but are not there to become a caretaker.

Unfortunately, addiction cannot be completely cured. That said, a recovered addict can absolutely live a fulfilling life free from the stresses and sorrows that come with alcohol or substance abuse by managing their addiction. Support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, among others, are there to help those who have dealt with addiction in the past stay engaged in their treatment and remain successful in their recovery.
