Intensive Outpatient Treatment in Vancouver, WA

Serenity Lane's Intensive Outpatient Treatment is a ten-week program of group therapy, individual counseling and education about the disease of addiction. Treatment groups meet three times a week for 3 hours per session. Times vary to accommodate the patient's work schedule. Serenity Lane meets the Deferred Prosecution requirements.

Recovery Support is then provided on a weekly basis for up to 11 months. Patients meet for a 1-1/2 hour weekly session to 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 the patient and his/her counselor.

  • Costs are partially covered by most health insurance plans

  • Patient Monitoring Program:
    When an individual is mandated to treatment, either through the court system, a DUI violation, an employer's last chance agreement, or is under the jurisdiction of an attorney or M.D., Serenity Lane will monitor the patient's progress and attendance through our "Blue Flag" program. Any absence from treatment sessions will be reported to the appropriate monitors. The patient must sign a release authorizing this monitoring program. No other treatment program in Washington offers a tracking system of this kind.
  • Medically Managed Withdrawal (detox) and Residential programs are available at our Eugene, Oregon facility. Admission can be coordinated through the Portland or Vancouver clinics.
