Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for Men and Women:

The Willows Substance Use Treatment Center specializes in providing evidence based practices to address substance use disorders as well as mental health and trauma. We provide support for overall wellness and recovery and focus on breaking down the barriers so that each individual can receive the treatment they need. Treatment is individualized and ranges from four weeks to four months. The Intensive Outpatient program consists of sessions three days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday for three hours a day. During this phase each individual also receives individual therapy and case management to address the individual’s unique goals while in treatment. This phase of treatment allows participants to maintain their daily responsibilities such as parenting and employment while addressing their substance use and mental health.


Outpatient Treatment for Men and Women:

Individuals may access outpatient treatment if appropriate level of care needed to support one’s recovery or may  step down from the Intensive Outpatient program to our Phase Two, Recovery Action Group. This group meets two days a week, Tuesday and Thursday, for three hours each day. During this phase participants focus on maintaining their recovery and building more concrete skills to support a healthy lifestyle. Staff hope to support participants in recognizing, examining and understanding the effects of substance use and trauma on their lives and the lives of their families.

Our Outpatient Services also consist of one-on-one individual therapy, recovery support and outpatient groups such as Relapse Prevention, Nurturing Families and Moral Reconation Therapy.
