The Intensive Outpatient Program offers gender specific, free, supervised, off-site housing to clients in need although participating in the housing program is not required. Programming includes groups, lectures, and individual sessions with their counselor. Clients also participate in therapeutic activities such as equine assisted psychotherapy, art therapy, role plays, and other proven techniques. Clients in our housing program also go to the YMCA weekly, attend 12-step meetings, and participate in various housing activities. Groups, lectures, and activities are available in the mornings, afternoons, and evenings. Typically, clients in our Intensive Outpatient Program that are residing in our off-site housing program live there for 3 to 6 weeks and are expected to participate in full programming. However, as client’s meet established criteria including securing stable supportive housing; their level of participation is decreased eventually attending treatment one day a week. If client’s struggle or display behaviors inconsistent with established criteria, their level of participation will then be increased. Adhering to research-based best practices, client’s total length of participation, whenever funding allows, will be over 13 weeks to then be followed by 12 additional weeks of Aftercare which is not a billable service.
