Our intensive outpatient program may be right for you if you need more support than our outpatient program can offer. We offer an intensive outpatient program for adolescents and adults here at Project Courage.The first step in determining if our program is a good fit for you is to complete our assessment and evaluation process. We feel the assessment and evaluation process is an incredibly important first step on your journey to recovery.

During this process, we focus on eight domains that help us determine if our outpatient or intensive outpatient program is a good fit for your needs.These domains include your family interactions and dynamics, impaired control, age of initiation, a risk and protective factors profile, development, motivation and stage of change, your family history of substance use, and your patterns of substance use. The assessment and evaluation process is critical to helping us understand your needs so that we can meet you where you are.

Our intensive outpatient program offers you and your loved ones numerous resources to support you while you work on your recovery.

  • Individual Therapy: Our intensive outpatient program guarantees that you’ll receive a minimum of one hour of individual therapy each week. In individual therapy, you’ll work with a therapist one-on-one to identify your strengths and triggers, learn new coping skills, and learn new ways of interacting and communicating with others.
  • Group Therapy: Our intensive outpatient program offers between nine and fifteen hours of group therapy each week. We have several groups that benefit individuals with substance use disorders.
  • Family: In our family group, we discuss how your family dynamics shaped your development and communication patterns. We also help you learn how to use different communication techniques to help you resolve conflict.
  • Life Skills: We use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help you learn that emotional and psychological pain is as much a part of life as physical pain. We also help you learn techniques to manage distress.
  • Twelve Step Facilitation: In this group, we give you the opportunity to learn about and discuss the first three steps in the 12-step program. We provide a nonjudgmental environment where you can identify and discuss potential obstacles, such as powerlessness, surrendering, and a Higher Power. We also orient you to 12-step programs, including holding mock meetings.
  • Meditation: You learn to observe your thoughts and to identify themes and patterns in your thoughts, feelings, and experiences in these group sessions. You will also learn how your body and mind react to distress.
  • Soul Pancake: You are provided with an opportunity to re-establish the developmental trajectory that was disrupted by substance use as you explore challenging topics, such as relationships, death, spirituality, and identity.
  • Exploring Substance Abuse: This group is provided to those who do not feel their substance use is problematic in order for them to determine for themselves whether or not their substance use is problematic.
  • Changing Substance Use: Based on change theory, this group is provided to those who recognize their substance use is a problem but are anxious or confused about changing it.
  • Mind & Body: Fitness. Our Mind and Body Fitness Group couples a personal trainer with a therapist and helps our clients learn how their physical body and their brains are highly interdependent.
  • Mind & Body: Yoga. By focusing on posture, breath, balance and how these interface with thoughts and mood, clients learn how their physical body and their brains are highly interdependent.
  • Adventure Therapy: Our Adventure Therapy Group is designed to get our clients out of their chairs and active. Through a variety of games and low ropes course elements, we provide our clients with an opportunity to experience and reinforce the messages of treatment and recovery such as taking risks, acceptance, and asking for help.
  • Significant Other Psychoeducation Group: We offer a six-session psychoeducation group for significant others. The group is content-driven and instructional in nature. Topics covered in the sessions are setting limits and consequences for loved ones, learning about how loved ones are rewired by addiction, and taking care of themselves.
  • Significant Other Support Group: This group is more open-ended. It provides an ongoing opportunity for significant others to get the support and help they need so that significant others can care for themselves and overcome codependency.
  • Urine Screenings: We help you stay on track by providing multiple urine screenings each week in our intensive outpatient program.
  • Medication Evaluation and Management: Our doctor can help you manage your medication. We provide suboxone to help you on your road to recovery, if appropriate. We can also help you find the right medication to treat co-occurring conditions, such as anxiety and depression.
