Casa de las Amigas and the John Dudley Outpatient Center are equipped to help all women, regardless of ongoing career or family obligations, on their journey of recovery from alcohol and/or chemical dependency.
Similar to our inpatient services, all of our outpatient programs are based on the 12-step recovery philosophy and utilize the vast experience and knowledge of our highly qualified drug and alcohol dependency counselors.
Upon admission to our Outpatient Treatment program, participants will meet with one of our counselors who will assess their specific needs and concerns, and together they will develop an individualized treatment program designed to help them clear a path to long-term recovery, one day at a time.
Casa de las Amigas’ Outpatient Program is comprised of three key components:
- Individual Sessions - Designed to orient the participants to the expectations of the intensive outpatient program, complete the administrative documentation and establish rapport with the participants to encourage treatment compliance.
- Small Support Groups - Provide participants basic skills required to achieve initial sobriety and maintain a long-term program of recovery. Each group meets for 1.5 hours with a maximum of 10 participants. Support Groups are an essential component of the treatment model and cover anger management, parenting skills, relapse prevention, dual diagnosis, drug education, life skills and issues of particular concern to women in recovery.
- 12-Step Philosophy - Utilized during the initial intensive phase of treatment to lay a foundation for ongoing support for the recovery process. It is critical to convey the expectation that gaining familiarity with 12-Step programs is an essential part of treatment and lasting sobriety.
All outpatient participants are required to submit to random drug and alcohol testing as a means of accountability. Outpatient programs include individual and group counseling, as well as family counseling sessions where participants and their family members may share their concerns, learn about the causes and effects of alcohol and drug addiction and establish a loving and committed plan for healing together.
