Relapse Intervention Program

The Relapse Intervention Program is designed for patients who have successfully completed a primary treatment program for chemical dependency and returned to active alcohol or substance use. The relapse treatment groups are intended to assist them in returning to active recovery. Each group session is a 2-hour session, which is classified as a low intensity outpatient program (LIOP).

There are 2 relapse treatment groups:

  • The first group is designed for individuals who were in unable to maintain sobriety and then relapsed. Generally, these individuals are experiencing trouble during the first several months of their recovery efforts. These individuals have been unable to maintain recovery within the program and may have unfinished primary treatment goals, inadequate recovery supports, wavering motivation, and struggle with triggers, high-risk situations, and/or co-morbid medical or psychiatric problems. This group meets twice per week.
  • The second group is designed for individuals who maintained a longer period of sobriety, but due to circumstances that arose in their lives have relapsed back into their addictive process. These individuals have experienced success in their recovery, but in spite of their effort they end up in trouble. Understanding what went wrong and addressing these critical issues are the important goals of this group. This group meets once per week.
