Treatment and Staff
The IOP usually lasts 90 days. Clients attend three hours of group therapy three times a week and one weekly individual session. Regular attendance at AA/NA meetings is also required. The program utilizes the Identity Transformation Model (ITM) developed by Bridgette Lank PhD, a licensed psychologist and chief clinical consultant for Safe Passage. The ITM employs a biopsychosocial approach, which attributes addiction to biological (genetics), psychological (mood, personality, behavior) and social (cultural, familial, economic) factors. There are groups specifically dedicated to trauma-informed care and co-occurring disorders, which can include medication management if needed. Therapy methods include psychoeducation, CBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI) and holistic approaches like meditation, yoga and nutritional counseling.
In addition to Dr. Lank, the staff is made up of Master’s-level therapists and support staff, including two MFTs and holistic health coach.
Safe Passage Recovery also offers a free family program for loved ones (18 years and older) that includes a two-part intensive occurring at week six and week 12 within the 90-day IOP.
