Treatment and Staff
NTHS enrolls clients struggling with chemical dependency in an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for treatment. Prior to enrollment, the treatment team works with all potential clients to determine their unique needs and to provide psychiatric stabilization if needed. Clients may stay for a short inpatient stay to receive a medical detox prior to beginning the program.
The IOP track has flexible treatment hours with sessions scheduled in the evenings Monday through Thursday and during the day Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 1:45 pm. Each client works with a case manager to create an individualized treatment plan. Average treatment duration is two to three weeks.
The program incorporates the 12-step model of recovery with group and individual therapy scheduled regularly. Some groups are also tailored specifically to psychoeducation and dual diagnosis support. The program is abstinence based, and clients are expected to refrain from using alcohol and drugs—including excessive prescription drugs. Groups are led by LDACs, CSWs and Master’s-level clinicians. Clients are also seen by psychiatric nurses and psychiatrists for additional screenings and medication management. Development of social skills, self-awareness and autonomy are key components of recovery at NTHS.
The IOP track is a family-centered program. Families are encouraged to attend family therapy sessions and to remain connected to the recovery process as much as possible. An aftercare component is also available for clients who have completed the program. Clients can attend weekly meetings as long as they want.
The Pavilion at Northwest Texas Healthcare System offers clinical treatment for chemical dependency, providing clients with an individualized approach in line with a 12-step model of treatment. Clients can heal and develop life skills while they continue to meet work and family obligations.
