Intensive and Workshops
Shame breeds in secrecy. Shame cannot exist when met with empathy, compassion, and care.
Addiction grows in isolation, and connection fuels recovery. It is because of this that
we have such a focus on connecting people.
Group Intensives Outpatient Program (IOP)
A group IOP experience provides the benefit of six months of group therapy over the course of 3-4 days. Individuals who
have completed an intensive experience with us report feeling more confident with a foundation
for sobriety as well as a useful tool-kit to maintain and build a meaningful recovery. The
intensive is tailored to the specific needs of those in attendance. Either for those newer to
recovery, or those in a longer term recovery that find him or herself struggling with roadblocks
that may be in the way of a deeper and more meaningful recovery. The format is educational,
experiential, and process oriented.

Building a framework of healing requires commitment and community. These workshops are
designed to build upon each other as you (and, if appropriate, your significant other)
navigate recovery in a safe, supportive group atmosphere. Attendance is highly suggested
at all Addiction workshops and/or Partner's workshops. By having a common language and foundational
tools, you can end the year strong by participating and celebrating together the individual
work you have both achieved.
Intensive Out Patient (IOP)
An intensive is an opportunity to receive a significant amount of treatment
within a short period of time. We offer individual intensives tailored to meet the
person's needs, as well as group intensives programs.
An Intensive outpatient program can be a good step-down option for a person coming out of inpatient
treatment, in which he or she meets one hour a day each day of the week for multiple weeks with
our clinicians. This provides a level of support for the person leaving the highly structured
environment provided by the inpatient facility, and helps give the person a safe place each day
to navigate the challenges of acclimating to home and work life. We have also found daily individual
outpatient helpful for the person needing more support however is unable to attend a group IOP
for different reasons.
