Outpatient Treatment Program at Michael's House

We currently offer a partial hospitalization program (PHP) and an intensive outpatient program (IOP) at our outpatient rehab center. In both programs, our multidisciplinary team provides support, structure, and hope for recovery from co-occurring addiction and mental health disorders. Every patient receives an individually-tailored program to meet their unique needs through group and individual therapy as well as life skills classes integrated with 12-Step principles.

Our PHP level offers six hours of treatment each day, Monday thru Friday, and includes weekly individual therapy, daily group therapy, recovery education, holistic activities, and aftercare planning.
Our IOP is three hours of treatment each day, Monday thru Friday, focusing on group therapy, recovery education, and aftercare planning. Our Virtual Evening Intensive Outpatient Program offers 3 hours of treatment from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm Monday through Thursday focusing on substance use and co-occurring mental health treatment. 

Patients in all programs begin with three hours of education per day, focusing on developing a schedule for a life of sobriety, increasing their recovery skill sets, continuing in group therapy, and gaining valuable relapse prevention awareness.

Medical evaluations with a staff medical doctor or nurse practitioner are available to adjust medications or deal with any issues that arise for PHP patients on a weekly basis and for IOP patients every 30 days or as needed.

What to Expect in Our Outpatient Treatment Program

The program provides a morning check-in and meditation group, which includes goal-setting for the day, psych-education, and process group learning, based on a variety of rotating topics, facilitated by a master’s-level licensed therapist.
Our process group offerings can vary depending on the patient population but often include the following:

  • Men’s group, women’s group, and LGBTQ+ group

In addition to the daily group therapy sessions, each patient is offered one individual session per week during this critical transitional period. The patient’s individual therapist is responsible for clinical assessment, treatment, and discharge planning.

Families are regularly updated and involved in discharge planning throughout the patient’s participation in outpatient services. Family sessions are arranged by the patient and therapist and can take place in person or over the phone. Referents are contacted upon admission and thereafter, as requested.

Alumni are encouraged to participate, at no cost, in our weekly evening process group. They are also invited to attend monthly gatherings at the outpatient addiction treatment center.
