CHANGES (IOP)

A 16 week intensive outpatient program group for adolescents who have been diagnosed with a drug and/or alcohol dependency. The group consists of psycho-education, group and family therapy. IOP offers the opportunity to participate in treatment while remaining in a less restricted environment at home. Group will allow the adolescent to assess their current home, social and academic environments and utilize learned positive coping skills to remain sober and healthy. The adolescent will gain insight into their actions and reactions in a manner that will enable them to take responsibility for their choices. The family plays a very important role in the adolescent’s recovery and will learn to understand addiction and how it impacts them and their family.

How to Register: Teens who are recommended after intake or their alcohol or drug assessment. Teens can be court ordered or voluntary. Families can call the office and request participation.
