The EmberWood Center began in 1979 as a drug prevention program in Indianapolis, Indiana. Since then, EmberWood has transformed into a facility that now offers substance abuse educational services and outpatient treatment. There is one Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for adults and two for adolescents. EmberWood services are not 12-step based.
Treatment and Staff
EmberWood’s doors are open from 9 in the morning to 8 at night, so as to accommodate varied schedules. The IOP lasts 16 weeks. A client begins treatment with an assessment which determines the appropriate course of action. The IOP lasts 16 weeks. Clients take part in two group sessions and three to five individual or family sessions per week over 12 weeks.
Outpatient treatment for adolescents (ages 12 to 18) is offered in two varieties of IOP. The 12-week program uses the Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA), with individual sessions and caregiver involvement. The other option is an eight-week MET and CBT based program which includes group and individual sessions at an individualized ratio. A weekly relapse prevention group is offered to both adults and adolescents who have already been through a treatment program with EmberWood or elsewhere and still need a modicum of support.
Random urinalysis takes place in each of the aforementioned programs which are all completed by an exit interview that includes discharge planning. EmberWood employs five Master’s-level substance abuse counselors and one Ph.D-level supervisor counselor who also sees clients.
EmberWood aftercare is offered to former clients at no charge and provides free group attendance for up to a year.
In addition to its substance abuse treatment services, EmberWood’s gambling program offers 12 weekly individual sessions over three months and one to two individual family sessions if necessary. Prevention workshops are also available to youth and family members of addicts.
EmberWood has a long tradition in substance abuse education and treatment. Its more than 30 years of experience bode well for those in the Indianapolis area. In addition, the cost of treatment at the EmberWood Center is really quite reasonable. As long as one is not particularly attached to the 12-step philosophy, this is an excellent choice for outpatient treatment.
