TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
To identify individual client needs and determine an appropriate level of care, individuals first participate in an initial assessment before beginning treatment. If a client requires a heightened level of care, they may be referred to PHP and “step-down” to less-intensive programs. According to the facility’s website, PHP is well-suited for individuals transitioning from a residential or detoxification program.
Open Door utilizes a range of evidence-based treatment methods to treat its clientele. During treatment, clients participate in clinician-led individual and group counseling sessions and educational classes on a range of topics. In addition, the facility requires clients to attend peer-based support groups, such as 12-Step, within the community.
To individualize its treatment, the facility also offers specialized groups on co-dependency, a women’s-only group,, as well as groups tailored to where the individual is in their recovery (i.e., initial recovery vs. relapse prevention and maintenance).
If a client is struggling with opioid addiction, the client may be referred to the facility’sprogram, which utilized Suboxone to minimize opiate cravings and alleviate withdrawal symptoms. Participants in the MAT program must also attend five individual and group counseling sessions per week.
PHP consists of approximately 20 hours of group and individual sessions per week (3-4 hours per day, five days a week). The program typically lasts three months, but ranges from one to six months. IOP involves six hours of weekly programming (three days per week) and lasts between six and eight weeks. Clients in IOP are also required to attend two 12-step meetings per week.
