Outpatient Treatment and Relapse Prevention
Program Philosophy/Methods for Meeting Outcomes
Empower Recovery Services offers solution based programming which is tailored to meet the unique learning styles of each client. Program components reflect the diverse needs of the population served. The treatment approach (while abstinence based) allows for learning through mistakes both past and present. Drawing from a model of health that focuses on the individuals belief system and unintentionally formed habits. Treatment is based on the belief that the problems related to substance abuse are treatable. The program consists of therapy groups, individual sessions with a licensed professional, medication management, and connection to community resources that begin the foundation of long term recovery.
Individual sessions with Mental Health Professional
**We also offer outpatient mental health services independently and we DO NOT require you to be receiving substance use services to be matched up with a mental health therapist**
We offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Please learn more about this therapy by clicking the link below.
A Mental Health Professional will be available for individual sessions, treatment planning assistance and to provide diagnostic assessments and therapy upon the referral of their primary counselor. Empower Recovery Services offers Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to assist in the treatment of trauma.
Individual sessions with Psychiatric Nurse
Our Psychiatric Nurse will meet with you for a psychiatric evaluation when you are enrolled in the treatment program; if you are experiencing mental health symptoms that are interfering with your ability to maintain a successful recovery.
Morning and Evening Programming
This service is for individuals that have been diagnosed with a substance abuse and/or co-occurring disorder. Typically an individual in this program has experienced consequences due to their chemical use and are in need of services that allow them to continue with their daily routines. This program is also designed for those whom have had previous treatment and have experienced a recent relapse , or are stepping down from a higher level of care. Empower Recovery Services has three levels of outpatient treatment to meet the individuals need:
High Intensity Outpatient: Group meets for 6-12 hours per week
Low Intensity Outpatient: Group meets 3-6 hours per week.
Individual Sessions Only: This option is reserved for individuals who cannot tolerate the outpatient group setting due to acute mental health symptoms. Most clients will be integrated into the group upon stabilization of symptoms.
