Common Questions

Diagnosis... What does that mean?
Diagnosis is based on:
  • Kind of problems
  • Number of problems
  • How serious are your problems
  • How long you have been using
  • How much you use
How long are the various treatment programs?
That depends, generally, the Adult Outpatient Program lasts approximately 16 weeks. However, this depends on:
  • The individual’s commitment to change
  • Progress in treatment
  • How bad the problems are when using
Some individuals with a “mild substance use or gambling disorder” diagnosis may have shorter outpatient involvement.
What do people do in treatment?
In Outpatient, individuals attend education groups to learn about addiction. Group therapy sessions promote learning and build coping skills to prevent gambling or using alcohol and drugs. They attend individual counseling sessions where goals are set and progress is evaluated. Individual sessions can be used to discuss private information they may not feel comfortable discussing in groups. Sometimes homework is assigned to help learn new coping skills needed for recovery. Participants are encouraged to attend and learn about community supports for recovery.
