New Dimensions specializes in helping adults who are struggling with alcoholism, alcohol abuse, substance abuse, or chemical dependency. Our Intensive Outpatient Treatment Programs (IOP) are designed to help individuals learn the skills they need to get control of their addictions so that they can get back to living a healthier happier life.
The Adult Substance Abuse IOP is a 12-step-based evening program that is designed to allow individuals the opportunity to begin the treatment process and develop the knowledge they need for long-term recovery and lasting sobriety. Individuals learn about the disease concept of addiction and about the effects that addiction has on mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual functioning.
While in the program, you will learn the skills you need to manage the triggers that lead to relapse and develop the support network you need to maintain sobriety. Through the mutual support of other individuals in the group, clients and families frequently gain a renewed sense of hope and healing.
Families are strongly encouraged to become involved in the program so that they can learn about effective strategies to support the client’s recovery and be a part of the healing process.
The program is designed to maximize the opportunity to get clean and sober and to develop healthy relapse-prevention skills. Some of the areas that are covered in the substance abuse program include:
- Introduction to the 12 steps.
- In-depth processing of steps 1 through 4.
- Introduction to the disease concept of Chemical Dependency.
- Understanding of Post-Acute Withdrawal.
- Introduction to Biopsychosocial Model of Recovery.
- Learning to accept personal responsibility for recovery.
- Developing “refusal skills”.
- Developing relapse prevention skills.
- Understanding health risks associated with addiction.
- Learning to change thinking patterns associated with addiction.
- Understanding the family roles in addiction.
- Overcoming the “triggers” of relapse.
- Understanding the stages of change in recovery.
- Tools of how to find effective sponsors and to use 12-step-based support groups effectively.
- Family communication skills.
The Outpatient IOP for Substance Abuse is structured so that individuals can continue to work and remain involved in their daily routines and relationships.
