Treatment includes short and long-term groups and individual therapy, including dual diagnosis support.
Treatment and Staff
The outpatient tracks are designed to be a step-down process, with each segment allotted for a certain number of weeks. The IOP is a four-to-six month program consisting of three weekly group sessions that last up to three hours each, and at least one individual session a month. The next level is the mid-intensive program, which is three months and requires two 90-minute groups a week and one individual session a month. The least intensive is the standard outpatient track, which typically only requires one hour-long group or individual session weekly. Programs offer flexible morning, afternoon and evening hours in order to accommodate the a variety of schedules. As previously mentioned, the IOP has a co-occurring disorders program as well, which includes a psychiatric analysis and access to medication management.
Treatments uses evidence-based practices along with an introduction to 12-step philosophy. Therapy tends to be strength-based and use a combination of modalities, such as Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), CBT, EMDR and Motivational Interviewing (MI). There are also gender-specific groups as well as groups focusing on anger management, life skills and trauma informed care. Psychoeducation, including relapse prevention, is also provided, along with parenting classes and a focus on overall health. The groups are usually kept fairly small in number, with no more than 10 clients at a time.
A continuing aftercare program is offered twice a week in a group setting for an hour and a half. Group times are offered twice a week in the afternoon and evening. There are also programs offered for pregnant and postpartum women.
Norfolk Community Services Board provides comprehensive care in an environment that doesn’t consider addiction treatment to be one size fits all. It holds clients accountable and asks that for full participation in the programs once a commitment is made. In turn, it offers a solid foundation and tools for continued success in recovery.
