Outpatient Treatment: Intensive and supportive

While some clients may benefit from outpatient treatment initially, outpatient services usually follow residential treatment. Gains made in residential treatment are consolidated as clients work in the community and live at home. Duration: 60-120 days. Both Intensive Outpatient and Supportive Outpatient Programs are available. Services provided include:

  • Individual counseling
  • Group counseling
  • Chemical dependency education

Mental Health Treatment

The Directions of Recovery, Inc. program is geared to provide services for clients with concurrent chemical dependency and mental health (dual diagnosis) problems. The Medical Director, Staff Psychologist and substance abuse counselors work with each client to address underlying mental health issues. It is our experience that lasting recovery can only be achieved when mental health problems receive effective treatment.

Group and Individual Counseling

Individual and group counseling services are provided by a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor. Both "Supportive" and "intensive" level services can be scheduled to meet personal recovery needs.

Services can be arranged around your busy schedule, including evening and weekend appointments. Your counselor will recommend the frequency of services needed to foster a lasting recovery. If you are under supervision, regular reports to the supervising agency will be prepared to document your program participation.

Group counseling is the proven modality for chemical dependency treatment. Under the supervision of an experienced counselor; clients share and learn from the life experiences of other clients.

Individual counseling is provided on a regular basis for every client and allows expression and sharing of more personal information.


Lasting recovery is usually not achieved after a brief period of treatment. Recovery requires commitment over the long term. Recovering persons typically make recovery the cornerstone of their lives. Aftercare services consist of attendance of group counseling sessions as an "alumni" as well as continued individual counseling as needed.
