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 one full year after completion of outpatient treatment. 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 appointment.
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 family program.
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
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.One full year of Recovery Support is included in the cost of treatment.
