Albany's Intensive Outpatient Program OVERVIEW
The first phase of outpatient treatment is a ten week program of
intensive group work and education. Treatment sessions are held
on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6-9 pm at 1050 Price Rd.SE,
Albany, OR 97321.
The second phase of treatment is called Recovery Support. This
program provides a weekly 1 1/2 hour therapy group for you for up
to 94 weeks. In Recovery Support you learn to identify and manage
stressful life events and to cope with the inevitable ups and downs
of early recovery.
Recovery is one day at a time. It involves a personal daily recovery
program which is developed by you and your counselors. Our staff
is here to assist you. Please do not hesitate to call us if you
have any questions. (541) 928-9681
Initial Intake Interview:
You meet with an admissions counselor to discuss your personal
history and to determine an appropriate level of care. This takes
a 1 to 1 1/2 hour appointment.
You meet with your counselor for an orientation to outpatient treatment.
At this time the program is explained, you receive a packet of materials,
and complete all necessary paperwork. This requires a half hour
A.A. / N.A., Al-Anon / Nar-Anon:
An important part of recovery from addiction and codependency is
"12-step program" involvement. Patients are expected to
attend two A.A. or N.A. meetings per week. Family members are encouraged
to attend Al-Anon or Nar-Anon.
Family & Friends Involvement:
Your spouse/significant other is encouraged to attend a weekly
family treatment group. Serenity Lane offers a comprehensive no-cost
Our office manager will discuss costs of treatment and insurance
coverage with you. This may be done at the time of the intake interview,
or a separate appointment can be arranged for your convenience.
Payment plans are available.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment
Phase 1: Intensive 10-Week Program
The interactive educational program is held on Monday from 6 -10
pm. There will be short breaks between educational topics.
The Wednesday and Thursday treatment sessions consist of working
on recovery issues in a small group. Topics in group include: acceptance
of self as alcoholic/addict, your recovery plan, relapse prevention,
adjustment to a sober lifestyle, and other individual issues.
Approximately mid-treatment, you will present a First Step Timeline
of how alcoholism/other drug addiction has affected your life and
the lives of your loved ones. This is one of the most important
segments of the treatment process.
As treatment progresses, some concerns may surface that are best
dealt with privately. Issues such as guidance in doing a first step
time line, developing a recovery plan, problems interfering with
treatment, and other personal issues can be discussed with your
counselor in an individual session. You are encouraged to make an
appointment to see your counselor as needed.
During treatment you will be asked to submit a urine sample for
drug/alcohol testing. This is one way we monitor your progress in
treatment and ensure a safe, alcohol/drug free environment for recovery.
This is NOT included in the cost of treatment. However, your insurance
may cover a percentage of the charge.
Planning to Transfer to Recovery Support:
Toward the end of the intensive phase of treatment you meet with
your counselor to transfer to Recovery Support, review your treatment
goals, recovery plan, relapse prevention plan and deal with any
questions or concerns you may have. At this time, referrals may
be made for ongoing community services, such as individual or marriage
counseling, parenting classes, anger management, etc.
Phase 2: Recovery Support
Recovery Support is the second phase of treatment. It is a weekly
1 1/2 hour support group designed to assist you in learning how
to cope with the ups and downs of early recovery. 94 weeks of Recovery
Support is included in the cost of treatment.
A Serenity Lane Commencement Medallion is awarded
when you successfully complete your treatment plan, attend a minimum
of four months of Recovery Support and meet the ASAM discharge criteria.
Your counselor will explain this criteria to you.
