Intensive Outpatient Treatment
This program provides assessment and primary treatment services, at significantly lower costs than inpatient rehab. It’s designed for individuals from the age group of 18 years and older, seeking primary treatment for alcohol and illicit or prescription drug abuse and drug addiction. IOP is mostly recommended for those who don’t need medically-supervised detox or for those who have already completed a residential treatment program and need additional recovery support.
Outpatient treatment is designed for individuals who are highly committed to recovery and can handle living/working at home during the period of treatment. While less expensive than inpatient rehab, it isn’t for everyone, especially those who need to be REMOVED from their home environments.
During individual addiction counseling sessions, patients are given the support, encouragement and motivation they need to stay clean and sober. The goal of these personalized counseling sessions is to provide a safe environment to identify and explore issues that may be obstacles to their recovery. These blocks to recovery may include co-occurring conditions and cross-addictions. The frequency of individual counseling sessions vary based on a patient’s substance abuse treatment needs.
Group addiction counseling allows the opportunity for patients to process what they learn in treatment into the form of open group discussions and educational lectures. We believe that addiction education is a key part of each individuals treatment, allowing them to learn about addiction, what impacts it and more importantly what can be done for a successful recovery. Group counseling allows individuals undergoing alcohol treatment and drug rehab to experience getting support and feedback for personal addiction issues from the experiences peer support.
Addiction is a disease which affects the mind, body and spirit. Prolonged use of drugs and/or alcohol greatly diminishes self-image and the ability to enjoy life sober. Step Down provides a variety of therapeutic activities to address the negative consequences of addiction. Off-campus outings, meditation classes, spiritual healing, and physical fitness provide exposure to alternate ways of enjoying sobriety and life. They teach coping skills, anger management, social skills, interpersonal growth and many other life skills.
One reason massage can be particularly helpful in the treatment of addiction is that the body reacts to massage in a similar way to alcohol and drugs. Massage is pleasurable for most people, and triggers the release of so-called happiness hormones like dopamine and endorphins. Thus, massage can play a unique and important part in reawakening these reward and pleasure pathways in the nervous system and swaying them away from alcohol use. One of the key initial steps for recovering addicts is to find that there are other sources of pleasure available.
Chiropractic care is considered to be an effective and safe method of treating pain. It is generally used to treat those who are experiencing back pain. Although this type of pain usually gets better without requiring much treatment, chiropractic care can help reducing the time taken for recovery, and in adjusting your bones and muscles for long-term healing.

When individuals become addicted to a chemical substance or alcohol, most times they simply cannot make the decision to stop using. It can be dangerous and even deadly to quit cold turkey. Although not every addict requires a detoxification program before entering into a drug and alcohol treatment program, it is extremely important that a professional complete a full evaluation of the individual before making that decision.
