Addiction Treatment at Northpoint Seattle: What is an Intensive Outpatient Program?

Intensive outpatient treatment programs are aimed at providing the same core services as a residential rehab program while giving participants the freedom and flexibility they need to maintain their daily responsibilities back home. The key difference between an inpatient treatment program and an outpatient treatment program is that participants do not live within the drug rehab facilities. Instead, our program gives participants the opportunity to come in for several hours each day for group support, individual counseling, and skills building. Other than the residential aspect, our intensive outpatient program offers many of the same services as an inpatient program. We strive to support program participants by:

  • Opening up opportunities for participants to communicate, participate, and interact with each other
  • Building a sense of community in our group meetings so that participants can support, and even confront, one another
  • Introducing a set structure and measure of accountability for those looking to overcome their addiction or alcoholism
  • Helping participants develop new skills and coping mechanisms, which can empower them to deal with their addiction in new ways
  • Focusing on individual recovery, with one-on-one mentorship and counseling available in all of our intensive outpatient programs

Reasons to Choose an Intensive Outpatient Program Like Northpoint Seattle

Northpoint Seattle offers accredited treatment services, giving clients the opportunity to take advantage of quality treatment. This is similar to what you would find in a full-time inpatient program, but with the added benefits of complete flexibility and treatment that comes at a fraction of the price.

There are usually two major reasons that people tend to choose intensive outpatient treatment over residential rehab: flexibility and price. Our state-of-the-art treatment facility is equipped to provide you with the highest quality of treatment, but we do not require you to live in these facilities. Instead, you can continue to work, go to school, stay involved with your family, and carry on with your daily life while attending treatment for several hours each day. This is the kind of freedom that an inpatient treatment program does not offer.

Similarly, because we do not require participants to stay in our facilities, our intensive outpatient program comes at a much more reasonable price than residential rehab alternatives. Instead of focusing on marked up room and board, we pour our resources into developing the best drug and alcohol treatment available in Washington. This means that you still receive the help that you need for overcoming your addiction on a daily basis, simply at a much lower price.

Participating in our intensive outpatient treatment program is not like attending a normal rehab clinic; however, you can expect to receive the following from our treatment program:

  • High quality alcohol and drug rehab in the Bellevue, WA area
  • Individualized treatment, with your needs and strengths considered
  • A wide variety of therapy approaches
  • A program based on empirical evidence

What Does Intensive Outpatient Treatment Look Like at Northpoint Seattle?

Our intensive outpatient program includes a wide range of treatment approaches, all of which are designed to help participants not only become sober but also develop the coping skills they need to keep sober on their own and through group support. The intensive outpatient treatment program at Northpoint Seattle includes:

  • One-on-one counseling sessions
  • Group support and therapy sessions

Our intensive outpatient programs usually last for roughly twelve weeks, or three months. During this time, participants are expected to attend at least three sessions per week, for a total of nine hours of treatment each and every week. Attending treatment several times per week, and for several hours each session, will help participants get on the right track as they begin down the road to recovery.

While the hourly commitment may seem intense (it is called an intensive treatment option, after all) we offer a flexible schedule so that all participants are able to meet this hourly expectation:

  • Monday: 1-4pm or 6-9pm
  • Tuesday: 1-4pm or 6-9pm
  • Wednesday: 1-4pm or 6-9pm
  • Thursday: 1-4pm or 6-9pm
  • Friday: 1-4pm or 6-9pm

During these sessions we offer both individual counseling and group support for participants. Some sessions will focus on rebuilding relationships, when participants will be welcome to bring family members and loved ones in order to address some of the detrimental effects that addiction or alcoholism has had on their relationships. During all sessions we will have a psychiatrist available for patients with co-occurring disorders.

We know that no two people have the same story when it comes to addiction or alcoholism. With this in mind we are committed to addressing the features and associated problems of addiction with an individualized treatment plan aimed at addressing your unique issues and problems. Our intensive outpatient program treats all of the following forms of substance abuse:

  • Alcohol addiction
  • Marijuana addiction
  • Prescription drug addiction
  • Cocaine addiction
  • Crystal meth addiction
  • Co-occurring disorders
  • Cross addictions

Just because you don"t have the ability to attend an inpatient facility does not mean that you have to attempt quitting drugs or alcohol completely on your own. Our intensive outpatient program lets you get the help you need, today, but to keep up with your daily responsibilities.
