The Insight Program

Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment For Teens

The Insight Program’s 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 Outpatient Program provides a level of support consistent with the issues of a teen with low level substance abuse or someone already in recovery needing additional counseling.

Any teen struggling with substance abuse issues faces many challenges. The objective of the 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 Outpatient Program the parents receive counseling, education, and support. The program works because it applies fundamental treatment principles in a way that is attractive to teens and responds to the needs of the entire family.

The Outpatient Program consists of one 1.5 hour weekly group session for 9 weeks, and one12-step individual counseling per week for nine weeks. All admissions into Outpatient must be voluntary and the client must be willing and appropriate to participate in treatment. All Outpatient clients are required to attend one Insight 12-step support group meeting per week and one Insight weekend social function per week (if scheduled). Clients successfully discharged from Outpatient will be offered up to four weeks of aftercare services. The Insight support group will also be offered throughout the course of treatment and to clients who are successfully discharged for up to 2 years, or as deemed necessary by the Insight staff.

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 Outpatient Program the staff along with the client and his or her family develop a comprehensive aftercare plan. Insight knows treatment doesn’t end with discharge from 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.
