We accept Medi-Cal, Medicare, and offer affordable private-pay rates for our outpatient services. Outpatient substance abuse services refer to a type of treatment and support provided to individuals who are struggling with drug or alcohol abuse but do not require 24-hour residential care. These services are designed to help individuals overcome substance abuse issues while allowing them to continue living at home, attending work or school, and maintaining their daily responsibilities.
Center Point DAAC offers two types of outpatient services:
Individualized Outpatient: A flexible outpatient services schedule which may include individual counseling or therapy sessions, group counseling, and educational classes. Every client is assessed at the time of enrollment to determine the appropriate level and type of services. Additional services may include couples counseling, family counseling, medication-assisted treatment, mental health therapy, or psychiatric services.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP): Intensive outpatient allows clients to live at home and go to work or school during the day but with a higher level of support and intensity. The IOP schedule is three hours of group counseling, three days per week, with one hour of individual counseling. Additional hours may be added for couples counseling, family counseling, medication-assisted treatment, mental health therapy, or psychiatric services. Center Point DAAC currently offers IOP on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights from 6 PM to 9 PM AND an daytime program on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 10 AM to 1 PM. We plan to add a weekend schedule in the coming months. Separate daytime IOP services are available for pregnant women, or mothers with newborn children in our Perinatal program.
Here are some key characteristics and components of outpatient substance abuse services:
Flexibility: One of the primary advantages of outpatient services is their flexibility. Individuals can attend treatment sessions during scheduled appointments while still having the freedom to live their lives outside of those sessions. This allows them to maintain their regular routines and responsibilities.
Assessment and Treatment Planning: Before starting outpatient treatment, individuals undergo a comprehensive assessment to evaluate their specific needs. This assessment helps determine the appropriate level of care and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to the individual's unique circumstances.
Individual and Group Counseling: Outpatient services typically involve individual counseling sessions, where clients work one-on-one with a therapist to address their substance abuse issues, underlying causes, and develop coping strategies. Additionally, group counseling sessions provide an opportunity for individuals to connect with peers facing similar challenges, share experiences, and provide mutual support.
Education and Skill-building: Outpatient programs often incorporate educational components to help individuals understand the nature of addiction, its impact on their lives, and the tools needed for recovery. These educational sessions may cover topics such as relapse prevention, coping skills, stress management, and healthy communication.
Medication Management: Outpatient services may include medication management for individuals who require medication-assisted treatment (MAT). Medications such as methadone, buprenorphine, or naltrexone may be prescribed to support individuals in their recovery from opioid or alcohol addiction. Medication is typically combined with counseling and therapy for the best outcomes.
Mental Health Therapy & Medication: Mental health therapists and a psychiatric nurse practitioner are available to clients who need them based on their assessment.
Family Involvement: Recognizing the importance of family support, outpatient programs may involve family therapy sessions or education for loved ones. Involving family members in the treatment process can strengthen relationships, improve communication, and provide a supportive environment for sustained recovery.
Continuing Care and Aftercare: Outpatient services often include a plan for ongoing support and aftercare once the initial treatment program is completed. This may involve regular check-ins, relapse prevention strategies, referrals to support groups, and access to community resources to help individuals maintain their recovery long-term.
Outpatient substance abuse services can be an effective option for individuals with a supportive home environment, a strong motivation to recover, and a lower level of addiction severity. It offers the flexibility to receive treatment while continuing to meet personal, professional, and educational obligations, promoting a gradual transition to a drug-free and healthier lifestyle.
