TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The process at Valley Hope of Wichita begins with an assessment and evaluation to determine an effective treatment approach. The facility offers an intensive outpatient program (IOP), which combines individual and group therapy with drug and alcohol education and introduces clients to the 12-Step philosophy. The IOP runs for six weeks and meets three times per week for a minimum of three hours each session.
The facility’s continuing care program, which meets for a one-hour group session for as long as necessary, addresses relapse prevention and supports a healthy lifestyle. A cornerstone of Valley Hope’s outpatient treatment, family care helps family members overcome feelings of guilt, fear, and resentment.
Group therapy is also offered remotely by way of Valley Hope Telehealth. In this online program, clients can connect with counselors and peers 24/7 and make use of videoconferencing for live group sessions.
As an organization, Valley Hope boasts a multidisciplinary staff of counselors, physicians, nurses, and psychologists.
