The value of Intensive Outpatient Programs has been verified through a number of industry studies, and has been proven to substantially reduce alcohol and drug use for clients who attend consistently. Bridgeway Recovery Center’s (BRC) Intensive Outpatient Program uses evidence-based practices, to address Substance Use Disorders in our clients. BRC will implement evidenced-based practices such as: Group Therapy, Individual Therapy, Family Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, 12-Step facilitation model, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Mindfulness Therapy, and Trauma Informed Care to address client Substance Use Disorders. BRC’s Intensive Outpatient Program will consist of 3 hours of group therapy per day, 3 days per week, for a weekly total of 9 therapy hours. Individual therapy will consist of (at least) one session per week to address specific individual clinical needs. A physician or nurse practitioner will provide an initial evaluation on admission to address individual medical and clinical challenges, as well as to determine and refer to the most appropriate level of care. BRC uses the ASAM criteria as our evidence-based template for determining the appropriate level of care. BRC provides services for ASAM 2.1 level of care, which indicates the client would best be served at the Intensive Outpatient Program level. All clients will be referred to the appropriate level of care upon completion of the BRC program, or if deemed necessary during their program participation. Clients will be referred to a higher level of care as determined by Chief Clinical Officer. The discharge process will include a thorough assessment of the clients needs, supports, and challenges, and referrals to providers and resources appropriate for each client’s needs will be arranged, with client and any involved supporters.
