The Insight Program

Intensive Outpatient Substance Abuse Program For Teens


The Insight Program’s Intensive Outpatient Program utilizes a comprehensive approach designed to assist young people between the ages of 13 and 17 in the beginning stages of their recovery. The Intensive Outpatient Substance Abuse Program can provide either primary outpatient substance abuse treatment or a smooth transition from an acute care or residential setting.

Any teen struggling with substance abuse issues faces many challenges. The objective of the Intensive Outpatient Program is to provide young people with the tools to cope with daily life challenges along with the opportunity to learn to have fun while staying sober. A teenager’s substance abuse problem also creates hurdles for his or her parents. The Insight Program places a strong emphasis on family recovery. While a teenager is in the Intensive Outpatient Program the parents receive counseling, education, and support. The program works because it applies fundamental treatment principles to resolve substance abuse issues in a way that is attractive to teens and responds to the needs of the entire family.

The Intensive Outpatient Program consists of 20 hours of group counseling per week,a minimum of one hour of individual counseling per week, family counseling,access to evening support groups, and weekly support group meetings for parents.

Issues dealt with in the Intensive Outpatient Program include:

o  How to deal with peer pressure

o  Resolution of life sabotage caused by drug and alcohol abuse

o  How to improve self-worth

o  Learning how to clear up trust issues with parents and other family members

o  How to have fun while staying sober

o  Long term consequences of drug and alcohol abuse

o  Relapse triggers

o  Relapse prevention

The staff works individually with each client to create a treatment plan specific to his or her needs. Before being discharged from the Intensive Outpatient Program the staff along with the client and his or her family develop a comprehensive aftercare plan to continue facing substance abuse issues along with reintegrating to daily life. Insight knows treatment doesn’t end upon discharge from Intensive Outpatient. It takes time to apply the tools of recovery to all aspects of life. This plan is critical to implementing the tools acquired through the course of treatment. Aftercare is long term and can last up to two years.
