Who should attend?
- Clients in need of structured supervised housing while attending intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment (30+ hours of treatment weekly).
- Clients who lack supportive housing and need to focus on recovery.
Requirements of Intensive Outpatient Program with supervised housing
Clients must attend all scheduled treatment programming (30+ hours weekly).
Due to the extensive programming, client’s only focus is attending treatment and therefore cannot attend other activities such as work or school.
Initially, clients are restricted from leaving the facilities but can earn free time as they progress in their treatment plan.
- On-site services include psychiatry, physicians, nurses, mental health and addiction therapists, social workers, and dietitians.
- The structured and supervised lodging allows clients to be removed from their environment allowing them to focus on treatment and their recovery.
- Clients receive a weekly food allowance and are transported to the grocery store
- Transportation is provided to and from scheduled programming
- The lodging is rent free for those who live there, attend scheduled programming, and follow rules and treatment expectations.
Length of stay
- Clients will be scheduled to reside in Intensive Outpatient with supervised housing for 6-8 weeks based on progress towards achieving treatment plan goals.
- Most clients transition to our Step House or another supportive sober housing program while reducing their level of treatment participation. However, there are exceptions that can be made based on individual needs.
- If clients obtain sober housing for long term housing prior to the 6-8 weeks they may move out and continue treatment on an outpatient basis.
- If clients are not meeting expectations or following the rules, they can be discharged from the house or recommended to be transferred to another program.
- If clients are proactively working on long term housing and it is taking longer than the 6-8 weeks, clients can remain in the intensive outpatient program with housing provided they are following rules and meeting expectations.
- If a client is clinically assessed to continue in intensive outpatient with housing longer than the 6-8 weeks, they may remain in the house (counselors will continue to keep treatment plan updated).
