Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
The Intensive Outpatient Program affords Clients the ability to continue to work and take care of family responsibilities while engaging in more intensive substance abuse treatment. Treatment is tailored to individualized needs and the range of services includes individual and group therapy; alcohol and drug education; relapse prevention; family therapy and ongoing after-care.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
The Partial Hospitalization Program, which is commonly referred to as PHP, provides the most intensive level of outpatient treatment that is available at Recovery Services of Connecticut. The PHP meets Monday through Friday from 9am to 1pm and includes a weekly individual session, urine testing 2 times per week and intensive case management. The PHP is generally 2 to 4 weeks in duration and is followed by a step down to either the day or evening Intensive Outpatient Programs depending on the scheduling needs of the client. Many clients step down to PHP after inpatient treatment or enter the PHP in lieu of going to residential treatment. In this regard, PHP may be the best option after a relapse to re-establish one’s recovery on an outpatient basis. Choosing the level of care whether it be PHP or IOP is best determined by an expedient evaluation with one of our experienced and caring clinicians.
Aftercare Programs and Long-Term Recovery
Aftercare and Long-term Recovery Planning are essential components of every Client’s treatment plan. RSCT will proactively work with the Client’s Insurance and/or Care Advocate to ensure appropriate continuity of care. Planning will include input from and coordination of efforts and communication with other providers, family members, and concerned persons in the client’s primary support system, including: Individual Counseling, Group Counseling, Family Therapy and Education.
Treatment for Executives and Healthcare Professionals
Physicians, attorneys, airline pilots, etc. in professional monitoring programs are staying sober at rates 4 to 5 times higher when compared to “civilian” outcomes in Substance Use Disorder treatment. We know what works. Healthcare professionals and other professionals with a significant responsibility to the public have been given a special classification of “Safety-Sensitive Workers” in the new American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria. Many factors place a burden on treatment, it’s efficacy, and the importance of that patient’s recovery for overall public welfare. These factors color decisions that are made regarding the type, intensity, and setting of treatment provided to this special population. The treatment that the general public receives is sorely lacking when compared to this “special” population. Many of the elements of the aggressive treatment and monitoring that “Safety-Sensitive Workers” undergo would dramatically increase positive outcomes if applied to the general public with Substance Use Disorders.
