INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM

ASSESSMENT

Anderson & Associates' highly trained staff provides expert assessment to ensure patients receive the appropriate level of care to meet their individual needs. Assessment tools include bio psychosocial history, extensive alcohol and other drug use history, urine drug screen, patient and family interview and administration of the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI-3). A formal, written assessment report will be provided if necessitated by a patient's individual circumstance. The need for outpatient medication detoxification or psychiatric services will be determined during the assessment phase.


INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT TREATMENT


Intensive Phase

After the assessment is completed, an individual who is is an appropriate fit for group treatment will be referred to Anderson & Associates' intensive outpatient program (IOP). The maximum group size is small, no more than 12 adults, to ensure individualized care. Readiness for group treatment is determined in the intake interview/assessment process and includes:

  • Assuring the patient recognizes his or her addiction as a problem

  • Assuring the patient is ready to commit to change

  • Assuring the patient does not require a higher level of care


This intensive level of treatment requires group participation at Anderson & Associates nine hours per week. Supplementary involvement in 12-step recovery is suggested during the course of treatment. Anderson & Associates IOP meets Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. Urine drug screens are administered at the beginning of each session. This intensive phase of the program is designed to last 10 weeks, provided the patient meets specific treatment goals established in the individualized treatment plan.


Continuing Care Phase

After the patient completes the intensive phase of IOP, he or she is transitioned into continuing care. This phase of treatment is designed to further the gains made in the first 11 weeks of treatment. Continuing Care includes increased involvement in the patient's established 12-step program, weekly attendance at a continuing care group at Anderson & Associates and individual therapy as indicated.


GROUP STRUCTURE


Traditional Therapies

Anderson & Associates' intensive outpatient program includes proven methods of treatment provded by expert therapists. The core structure of our IOP includes the following weekly groups:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: This group teaches patients that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, as opposed to external things, such as people, situations and events. Patients benefit from learning that we can change the way we think to feel/act better, even if the situation does not change.

  • Relationship Group: This psychoeducational and interactive group helps patients explore the full effect of addiction on relationships and on the family system as a whole. Dysfunctional patterns of behavior are isolated and addressed within the group framework.

  • 12-Step Group: This weekly group teaches patients about 12-step recovery and is intended to be used as a supplement to regular attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings. Each patient will have completed written work on Steps 1 and 2 before his or her transition into continuing care. In addition, patients learn practical application, on a daily basis, of the principles contained in the 12 steps.

  • Process Group: This less structured group provides a place for members to work on interpersonal issues. Here, patients begin to become conscious of what's going on inside themselves, how they are interacting with the group and how the group is functioning as a whole.


Music Therapy

Music therapy is a weekly, experiential group that uses music to begin unlocking those potentials that already reside within each individual. Music, spontaneous imagery and the patient's innate potential toward healing all combine in this process to address physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions of recovery.


Auricular Acupuncture

Explained simply, auricular (or ear) acupuncture is a specialized complementary therapy in which acupuncture points on the outer ear are treated, using needles, to help relieve alcohol and other drug cravings and assist in easing the symptoms of detoxification. Patients at Anderson & Associates receive acupuncture on a weekly basis from a qualified auricular acupuncture detoxification specialist.


Yoga

Practitioners of this ancient Indian system of health care use breathing exercises, posture, stretches and meditation to balance the body's energy centers. This complementary approach to mental health care emphasizes the interrelationship among mind, body and spirit, and plays an important role in recovery and healing. Yoga is used in combination with the other elements of our IOP to assist in alleviating symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress. Patients practice yoga on a weekly basis with a certified instructor.

Psychodramatic Techniques

Facilitated on a weekly basis at Anderson & Associates, trained therapists employ psychodramatic techniques, directing dramatic action, in order to examine problems or issues raised by an individual. A highly experiential process, psychodramatic technique facilitates insight, personal growth and integration on cognitive, affective and behavioral levels. This method clarifies issues, increases physical and emotional well-being, enhances learning and helps patients develop new skills.


INDIVIDUAL OUTPATIENT TREATMENT


Individual Therapy

One-on-one therapy sessions provide patients with individual assistance in resolving issues related to substance abuse and/or addiction. We believe that good treatment is a cooperative effort between patient and therapist. Understanding that not every individual is initially in a place to recognize the need for change, we work to meet patients where they are and very simply provide a new lens through which an individual can view the events of the past and present. This approach is respectful of ambivalence and allows the patient to grow his or her own sense of internal motivation to make a change.

Individual sessions are 50 minutes in length. Time in treatment is determined by the need of the individual and the rate at which he or she meets treatment goals. Individuals will be required to submit to random drug screens and breathalyzer tests at any time during the treatment process.


Substance Abuse Education: Individual Setting

Patients with legal entanglements (DUI or DWI) who are referred to Anderson & Associates for assessment and substance abuse education required by the court, but do not meet the criteria for substance dependence, may be eligible for the following service:

Six to 10 weekly, individual therapy sessions to include the following educational elements:

  • Psychopharmacology, including the physiological effects of alcohol and other drugs

  • The process of addiction in contemporary culture

  • Warning signs of abuse or addiction

  • Basic problem-solving

  • Communication and stress management skills

  • Introduction to 12-step programs

Patients participating in individual substance abuse education are required to submit to a weekly urine drug screen and breathalyzer test and must attend 12-step meetings on a consistent basis during the course of treatment.

DETOXIFICATION


Anderson & Associates offers outpatient detoxification from alcohol and other drugs to appropriate candidates under the supervision of the medical director.


Opioid Detoxification​

Anderson & Associates uses the drug Suboxone to provide outpatient detoxification to appropriate patients. Patients are required to participate in therapy, attend weekly 12-step meetings and submit to urine drug screens during the course of their detoxification. Individuals seeking an end to opiate addiction will move through the following process:

  1. Assessment and treatment recommendations completed by a qualified therapist.

  2. Referral to the medical director to begin Suboxone (only patients deemed appropriate for outpatient detoxification will be referred).

  3. Immediate commencement of individual and/or group therapy AND 12-step meeting attendance.


A patient who is noncompliant with any element of treatment, including therapy and 12-step meeting attendance, will be discharged.
