Treatment and Staff
The IOP consists of a combination of individual and group therapy; meeting three times a week in three-hour increments. Both morning and evening sessions are offfered. The program utilizes a range of evidence-based treatment modalities, such as CBT, as well as educational groups, family therapy, art therapy, experiential therapy—including yoga and meditation—and relapse prevention. For PTSD or similar trauma-related issues, EMDR is also available, as is support for clients with a dual diagnosis. Connections Counseling offers a separate IOP track , using all the same treatment methods, for adolescents. Both programs rely heavily on the Matrix Model and 12-step principles.
Early intervention and court-ordered drug and alcohol abuse assessments are offered, as are individual, group and family therapy on a standalone basis. Aftercare is offered in the form of tapered off outpatient treatment, usually involving a weekly group focusing on relapse prevention strategies.
Connections Counseling also has a specialized Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) option for clients battling severe depression, as well as a partnered program through the University of Wisconsin that provides early intervention and marijuana and substance abuse education to college kids, focused mainly on harm-reduction strategies and healthier behaviors.
Connections Counseling is a comprehensive IOP using many of the state-of-the-art, evidence-based treatment methods available; designed to accommodate both adults and adolescents. Offering flexible scheduling options, a highly-trained professional staff and many of the holistic modalities typically found only in residential programs, Connections Counseling continues to be valuable local resource and a strong choice for outpatient treatment.
