Treatment and Staff
The co-ed IOP typically runs six to eight weeks, with clients attending three- to four-hour sessions a minimum of four days a week. Working within the structure group therapy, treatment involves evidence-based methods including CBT as well as 12-step recovery, addressing a variety of topics including relapse prevention. Educational sessions are also part of treatment and both individual and family therapy are provided on an as-needed basis.
Women in Treatment is Peninsula Lighthouse’s specialized IOP for women without health insurance or who don’t have the means to pay for their treatment. Funded by the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, this group is run by a licensed Master’s-level clinician, Monday through Friday and is designed to help develop peer support and address topics such as self-esteem, body image, conflict resolution, parenting, relationships and relapse prevention. Case management services are also available.
Staff includes psychiatrists, psychiatric Nurse Practitioners and Master’s-level clinicians.
Peninsula Behavioral Health also offers treatment for adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 through its standard IOP.
Peninsula Lighthouse provides IOP for adult men and women catering specifically to underprivileged females in the community. Using a combination of traditional 12-step and evidenced-based recovery methods, clients struggling with addiction are given well-rounded treatment and all the tools necessary to begin building their sober life. For clients with co-occurring disorders, qualified staff offer support through individual therapy and medication evaluation and management. With its parent company, Peninsula Behavioral Health, providing additional services for adolescents, residents of the Greater Knoxville area are well served by this organization as a whole.
