Overcoming Substance Use Disorder demands a lifelong commitment. Because of this, The GateHouse provides a complete continuum of individualized services for every phase of recovery. This includes a range of intensive outpatient programs and general outpatient services for those who have moved back into the community. It is here, in a safe and inviting environment, that clients (and their families) receive the additional services they need to continue to stabilize and receive added support on their recovery journey.
Dedicated to “restoring the human spirit through recovery” for over 50 years, The GateHouse has built outpatient programs that provide the services to build a tight support system, strengthen recovery skills, and take advantage of local resources.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP)
The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at The GateHouse is a recommended level of care for individuals transitioning out of a highly structured residential program and for individuals who have not gotten to the point of needing a higher level of care like our Residential Extended Care facilities or our partial hospitalization program (PHP). Individuals engaged in IOP are after still at work or in a position to return to work.
IOP entails groups 3-5 days of the week that will step down to 1 group and 1 one on one session per week. These services are individualized to each client’s assessment needs.
- Work on their recovery while still participating in daily life
- Individualized treatment planning
- Access to family support and education
- Acquire early recovery skills
- Life skills implementation
- Learn about relapse prevention
- Employment services
- Seek referrals to local resources
- Develop a close-knit support system
Intensive Outpatient Program services provide as much as 10 hours of weekly treatment, including weekly family sessions as necessary.
General Outpatient Treatment
Providing many of the same benefits as Intensive Outpatient but with less frequency, The GateHouse General Outpatient Services provide a welcoming community that focuses on an individual’s personal recovery. In a uniquely supportive group setting, we touch upon many subjects, including:
- Relapse prevention
- Coping skills
- Issues related to daily life struggles
- Life skill classes
- Co-occurring disorders
- 12-step program involvement
- Maintaining long-term recovery
Schedule and frequency of services are based on client needs. Held at our Behavioral Health Outpatient Center, these levels of care give our clients the perfect place to reconnect to the recovery community and maintain the skills, relationships, and mindset to stay connected.
