Adult Substance Use Disorder Outpatient Treatment Programs

Fairview Recovery Services and HealthEast Mental Health & Addiction Services offer several outpatient treatment options for people with substance use disorders. All of our programs focus on the patient as an individual, with treatment plans created around each person’s unique needs. Every patient begins by taking a Substance Use Assessment.  After the assessment is completed, a licensed counselor will meet with you to discuss your treatment options.  

Outpatient treatment

All of our programs are designed to help patients understand the negative effects of alcohol and/or drugs on their lives and relationships. Patients will work with their counselor to develop a personalized plan that outlines treatment goals. By working towards these goals, individuals will develop a positive self-image and learn the coping skills necessary to achieve and maintain recovery. 

Our outpatient treatment programs include: 

Intensive outpatient treatment

This program provides structure and accountability. Intensive outpatient provides nine hours of group therapy per week as well as individual counseling, education and family involvement.

Outpatient treatment

This program is a step down from intensive outpatient. Outpatient treatment provides 4-7 hours of group therapy per week as well as individual counseling, education and family involvement.

Recovery management
This program meets once per week for two hours. Clients develop their personalized Recovery Care Plan to assist them as they prepare to leave treatment and begin their lives in recovery.

Co-occurring outpatient groups
Clients who are dealing with both a substance use disorder and another mental health disorder, such as depression, anxiety or trauma, can benefit from working with a dual licensed therapist to address both disorders at once. In addition to the evidence based therapy and education provided in all of our programs, clients will learn how these disorders interact and develop skills to manage their symptoms without the use of alcohol or illicit drugs.
