The Outpatient Rehabilitation Program is designed to better serve alcohol or drug dependent individuals who sometimes lack the adequate support systems to strengthen their recovery, or may need focused assistance to build the skills necessary to avoid relapse or to manage life on life’s terms. In addition, this program assists clients who have health care needs related to their sobriety that may require attention or monitoring by health care staff.
CARS Outpatient Rehabilitation (OPR) program is approximately 6 - 12 weeks in length depending on the individual needs of the client. It includes both group and individual counseling. This program runs from 9:00 AM – 2:15 PM on Monday, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays and includes a daily lunch option. OPR does not run on Wednesdays to provide participants a day during the week for which to schedule other necessary appointments in a manner that does not interfere with their participation in treatment here at CARS.
CARS OPR provides social and health care services; skill development in accessing community resources; activity therapies; information and education about nutritional requirements; and vocational and educational evaluation along with research-based addiction treatment models including: The Matrix Model, motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, rational emotive behavior therapy, and regular drug screen testing for documented abstinence.
We believe that this model creates an opportunity to better support our clients in building a foundation of recovery and preventing further chaos or pain caused by active addiction. This model can also support our clients in remaining in our community and building on healthy relationships and community supports that are often lost at higher levels of care which often take them away from home for significant periods of time.
To access OPR services please call for an evaluation (607-273-5500) or walk in to discuss your treatment needs with one of our counselors.
In closing, I want to thank you for your kind attention and interest in getting to know us and our services. Our focus has been and will always be on our enduring purpose statement. “We believe in the capacity of people to transform themselves.”
