After completing the Intensive Outpatient Program, clients will enter the Outpatient Program (OP) level of care. In this level of care clients will be attending group one to two times a week and meeting with their therapist weekly. All group sessions are led by licensed, master’s level therapist. At this point in their treatment process client will be working, have a sponsor, attending regular 12 step based meetings, and starting their steps.
Bright Futures Treatment Center’s OP substance abuse program focuses on maintaining abstinence from drugs and alcohol. Clients will learn strategies and tools on how to achieve their long term sobriety goal. At this point in their treatment and recovery clients should have base line understanding of their addiction or alcoholism, and the consequences it causes in their everyday life. In groups and individuals clients will identify underlying stressors and developing coping skills to combat them.
Achieving an meaningful life
In OP level of care, clients tend to be a little more stable in their life and their sobriety. At Bright Futures Treatment Center, not only do we want our clients to have a successful recovery but also a meaningful life. Many of our clients have career and academic goals they would like to achieve. Our team of case managers helps our clients reach these goals by helping client apply and prepare for continued education, whether for their GED, or a college degree.
Unlike other outpatient programs our clients are able to utilize our medical team throughout their stay with Bright Futures Treatment Center. Clients are able to meet with the on duty nurse or our psychiatric doctor. Working with the doctor, clients will learn how to properly manage their medications.
