Programs are available to assist you through this difficult transition period. Outpatient services help you develop a balanced lifestyle through individual and group sessions. Contact your counselor or the office directly for availability and more detailed questions. Below you will find general descriptions of programs offered.
Adult Continuing Care
The Adult Continuing Care program supports those who have successfully completed treatment (inpatient or outpatient) yet require additional treatment support. Participants attend a once-a-week group session and an individual session every other week. Sessions focus on relapse prevention, creating a healthy environment that supports recovery, and strengthens skills learned in treatment.
Co-Occuring Mental Health Services include Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
A behavioral approach that helps those enrolled in treatment to reach their recovery-based life-goals by identifying risky behaviors and teaching skills to change those. DBT is provided as a continuing care program.
Intensive Relapse Prevention
This program assists those who have completed treatment to develop a balanced lifestyle. It teaches essential life skills to use when confronted by high-risk thinking and problematic behaviors. Participants attend one weekly group session and an individual session every other week.
Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT)
An evidenced based program developed for individuals with serious criminal histories and substance use problems. The program focuses on completing 12 of16 Steps that assist clients with re-developing, or in some cases, developing a moral code that coincides with substance use recovery activities. Utilized in many correctional programs across the country; at ADSGC it is an outpatient program for treatment court and probationers.
Seeking Safety is specifically developed to address both Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and substance abuse. It helps clients establish safety–to work toward discontinuing substance use, letting go of dangerous relationships, and gaining control over symptoms as dissociation and self-harm.
The course manual is divided into 25 topics, addressing a range of cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal domains. Each topic provides highly practical tools and techniques to engage patients in treatment; teach “safe coping skills;” and restore ideals that have been lost including respect, care, protection, and healing.
Structured yet flexible, topics can be conducted in any order and in a range of different formats and settings. Seeking Safety is offered as a continuing care program after primary treatment. Topics of Seeking Safety are also used in our Individual Outpatient Patient program.
