Red Willow Intensive Outpatient Therapy Program FAQ

Does intensive outpatient program include detox?

No. We have working relationships with detox providers and can provide referrals. However, detox should be completed before entering into the program.

Is your program for drug and alcohol related addictions only?

No. We address and treat mental health, trauma, and process addictions as well. These include but are not limited to, sex, gambling, and gaming for example.

Am I required to participate in 12 Step Meetings?

No. While we emphasize and hold accountability for building a strong support-network through engagement in community organizations and groups, we do not require participation in any one-type of mutual support group (such as a 12-step program). There are a wide range of support options available, based on individual preference. Healthy and positive social support has been shown to dramatically increase success with long-term recovery

Who facilitates the groups?

All groups are facilitated by licensed clinicians: Master’s-level clinicians facilitate all Process Groups, and Psychoeducational Groups are run by Substance Use Disorder Counselors.

How long is the intensive outpatient program at Red Willow?

We ask for a minimum commitment of 12-weeks for clients entering our program. However, successful completion of the program is not determined by time, but rather completion of individualized goals and engagement in the program.

Do you test for drug and alcohol use during the program?

We administer randomized, weekly drug and alcohol testing, working with an outside laboratory to ensure accurate and sophisticated results.

What happens if I relapse?

Relapse can be part of the process of recovery and is addressed on a case by case basis, with input from the client, their therapist, case managers and the program director.

Do you prescribe medication?

We do not prescribe medication. However we do have working relationships with many health care providers in the area whom we may provide referrals to, based on individual need.

How much does it cost?

We offer a very reasonable cost for our programming. For each 4-week unit, the discount cash price is $2500. If you have Out-of-Network benefits with your insurance, you will likely pay much less.

Do you accept insurance?

We are currently not in-network with any insurances.  However, if clients have out-of-network benefits with their insurance, we can bill through that coverage.
