Intensive Outpatient Program

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) helps individuals to recover and grow beyond the effects of mental health, substance use, and co-occurring disorders.  Part of the process is to achieve quality of life through education, employment, volunteer opportunities, social interaction, participation in hobbies, or pursuing the arts.

IOP supports a client in making positive changes in values, goals, knowledge, skills, life roles, and self-image.  As a result of these changes, clients no longer see themselves as the diagnosis they were given but as the person they are, and would like to become. This program allows clients to believe that they can live rich and rewarding lives.

Some topics of discussion include:  Symptom management, relapse prevention, coping skills, conflict resolution, anger management, stress management, developing support systems, healthy lifestyles, budgeting, social skills, interpersonal communication, self-advocacy, employment skills, and community interaction.

Other Therapeutic Services​
Inclusive of our program, each client of 2nd Chance will receive a myriad of therapeutic services.  Our psychiatrist meets with each client at admission, and as needed for follow up and medication management.  We provide assessment tools such as an extensive biopsychosocial assessment, and based on this information we work with each client to establish an individualized treatment plan which is reviewed monthly for progress.  Each client of 2nd Chance will receive individual counseling, family consultation, and medical consultation with community providers. 
 Treatment Modalities Used

Some treatment modalities include:  Motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, psychoeducational group counseling, relapse prevention education, process groups, role play or behavior modeling exercises, and community outings.

Community Outings
At 2nd Chance, we provide opportunities for sober living activities to enhance an individual's ability with recovery and community reintegration.  Our outings are educational, experiential, and are the same activities our clients can affordably enjoy outside of the program.  We frequently engage in mindfulness activities at parks or the beach, learn about different cultures by attending local holiday celebrations or parades, visit museums and landmarks to enhance community inclusion, and enjoy some friendly competition by going bowling.
