Clients will attend educational sessions on a variety of topics relating to addiction recovery and coping with mental illnesses. These groups review the latest research in addiction treatment to educate them on developing better coping strategies for dealing with their condition after they complete treatment. Intensive outpatient clients will learn how to identify and understand their triggers for using drugs and practice better life habits to prevent from relapsing. Clients will also learn how to identify high-risk situations associated with drug use, how to change their behavior for the better and avoid bad influences. These group meetings and individual planning sessions focus on helping our intensive outpatient clients build a solid foundation in their early recovery, give them the tools they need successfully integrate back into society after treatment and enjoy a long-term recovery.
