Adult Programs

The Intensive Outpatient Program of Life Management Resources

The Life Management Resources IOP was developed as a means of providing a high level of structure for people in early recovery. The education and peer support in group therapy, the involvement of family in Multi-Family programs, and Individual Therapy prepares and equips the patient to face the challenges of recovery. The group sessions meets three times a week for eight weeks, individual sessions are scheduled at the patient’s convenience, generally once per week.

For those patients who still have unresolved issues at the end of the IOP, we offer the Supportive Outpatient Program (SOP) which meets two times per week for group sessions and twice per month for individual sessions.

Aftercare continues for 12 months following graduation.

Relapse Prevention Skills

In Group Therapy, patients learn to understand the symptoms of addiction, the role denial plays in keeping them active in their addiction, the people, places and events that “trigger” them to relapse. More importantly, they learn to develop a “Relapse Prevention Plan” to put into effect when these events do occur.

Family Involvement

For Families, the opportunity to participate in family group occurs each Thursday evening or Friday morning.  In this group session, each family member is given the opportunity to discuss their loved one and the progress they are making.  It also provides an opportunity for family members to seek out ways to deal with those in early recovery, since many times this can be a frustrating experience.  Suggestions and exercises are presented to help the families begin to improve the way they functions and to build toward healthier families and relationships.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy takes place on a regular basis. This experience provides the patient with a trusting, meaningful relationship with their personal counselor and an opportunity to process issues not covered in the group setting. In addition, patients will complete Steps 1,2 and 3 with their counselor.

Dual Diagnosis

Many patients come to treatment with issues relating not only to addiction, but with other mental health diagnosis.  Among these may be Major Depressive Disorder, BiPolar I and II, Schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder, ADD and other significant issues.

Our professional staff is clinically trained and experienced to assist these patients with these presentations.  We can assist with securing a workable medication management program and monitoring its’ effectiveness throughout the course of treatment.
