Outpatient Services (OP)
Substance use services that are rendered in our, clinic environment focus on behaviors associated with alcohol and/or drug use including lifestyle, attitudes, relapse prevention, and coping skills. Active family and or significant other involvement is important unlescontraindicated. The goals, frequency and length of treatment will vary according to the needs of the individual and the response to treatment.
A clear treatment focus, measurable outcomes, and a discharge plan will be developed as part of the initial assessment and treatment planning process, and will be evaluated and revised as necessary as treatment proceeds.
Outpatient services include a brief duration and may be provided as a step down from a higher intensity of care such as residential, intensive outpatient, day treatment or as initial treatment.
Some individuals, however, may require ongoing, intermittent contact with a licensed professional (e.g. once or twice per month) to maintain the individual’s optimal level of functioning, sobriety and to prevent the need for more intensive level of care.
