Venice Intensive Outpatient Program

These programs are designed for those individuals that have been using drugs or alcohol and need frequent sessions to maintain abstinence. Some of our clients attend this program in an effort to gain control over their substance use problems before there becomes a need to go to an inpatient facility, while some of our clients attend this program as a step-down option following an inpatient stay.

During the client’s initial appointment or evaluation, we can help to assist and determine which type of program is most appropriate and if an inpatient option is necessary, we can make recommendations at that time. Our focus is on education, community building, and group therapy.

Groups are kept to an average of 8 members so all individuals get the focus needed for successful treatment. Family members, parents, and/or support persons are required to be involved in the individual’s treatment and are counseled as well to help their loved ones succeed.
