ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM ALCOHOL OR DRUG ABUSE? IS YOUR FAMILY ASKING YOU TO SEEK HELP?
Solstice Counseling and Wellness Center wants you to know you are not alone.
According to a study conducted by the United States Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, more than 21 million people were classified with substance abuse in 2013.
You may be thinking that you can’t afford to go into treatment, that the costs are simply too high. You may be concerned you will have to leave your job, drop out of school or stay away from your loved ones.
Solstice wants you to know that you are not alone in those thoughts either. More than 20 million of those identified with substance abuse problems did not receive treatment. Many of them cited cost and the inability to pay for treatment as the main reason they didn’t seek help.
If you feel you cannot afford substance abuse treatment for any reason, an intensive outpatient program at Solstice Counseling and Wellness Center may start you on the path to a clean and sober lifestyle.
What Is An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?
Solstice offers an intensive outpatient program (IOP) which is a treatment service and support program used to treat substance abuse and other disorders. These programs are designed for those individuals that need frequent sessions to maintain abstinence. Some of our clients choose this program in an effort to gain control of their substance abuse issue before there is a need to go to an inpatient facility. Others choose this program because they cannot be away from work for extended periods of time.
If your situation is similar, then the IOP offered through Solstice may be perfect for you. You will undergo more intense counseling at the Solstice IOP, sometimes as much as 12 hours per week, but sessions can be scheduled so that they fit into your calendar. The therapy often includes other services as well, such as:
- Parenting skills
- Family education and counseling
- Back-to-Work Counseling
- Domestic Violence/Trauma Counseling
- Adolescent & Young Adults (Early Intervention and Prevention)
- Nutrition education
- Wellness & Self Care
Benefits of Our Intensive Outpatient Program
An IOP at Solstice offers more intense treatment than standard outpatient treatment, almost like an inpatient program offers. However, an IOP allows you to continue working, remain with family and work toward getting clean and sober while still living at home.
It allows you to receive the support of family and friends as you work through your addiction, something that can be extremely beneficial in the treatment process.
You’ll feel more stable and comfortable when you are able to remain at home as you work with the caring counselors at Solstice to overcome your addiction.
If you are responsible for providing for your family, an IOP will allow you to continue working and attend counseling sessions at night or on weekends. You can still pick the children up at school, run errands or spend time with friends.
This also allows you to put into practice what you are learning through your treatment. In addition, IOP treatment costs much less than inpatient treatments.
Our Intensive Outpatient Program Include
An IOP consists of several different treatment methods designed to help the patient overcome their substance abuse. Some of the methods used in IOP treatment include:
Comprehensive bio-psycho-social assessment
This refers to a series of questions asked at the beginning of treatment that obtain information about the major physical (bio), psychological and social issues of the person. This is a holistic approach because it suggests that separate issues are often related. By asking these series of questions we may establish the most significant elements in each aspect of the individual’s life, therefore a more effective treatment plan can be created.
FDA approved urine drug screening
With both on-site results and laboratory confirmation testing.
Individualized treatment planning
Treatment plans that are created to help the client set goals and self-reflect during their treatment. Since every person is different and every person’s problems are different it makes sense to have each person’s treatment plan be different to meet the needs of the individual.
This is a form of psychotherapy in which one or more counselors treat multiple clients together as a group. It is often that clients use these groups as a way to connect and relate to other people going through similar problems. It is also a way to learn from others through constant self-reflection.
Family members are able to come to the facility and have a family therapy session with their loved one facilitated by a mental health/substance abuse professional.
This is a process where the counselor gathers a lot of psych-based information about a client with the intention of making a diagnosis.
This is medical care provided by healthcare professionals that aim to optimize drug therapy and improve therapeutic outcomes for the clients.
Health and wellness counseling
Solstice offers numerous groups and activities to clients with the intention to increase their health and overall wellbeing. We offer nutrition groups which aim to educate clients on the different foods they are eating/drinking. Yoga is offered to clients as well to improve their physical and mental health.
This is when counselors help clients who need to obtain work finds jobs. Learn how to improve their skills and professional development. Also how to successfully search for work. Help with resumes and filling out job applications etc.
When the counselor creates a plan with the client to help them comfortably transition towards the termination of their treatment.
Clients are taught different ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle after leaving solstice. *The maintenance stage of change is addressed*
Mutual self-help recovery groups
Clients have the option to different self-help groups in their area. Solstice can provide meeting lists which show different areas, days and times that the meetings are held in order to help the clients find the perfect meetings that fit best to their convenience.
