Since Crossroads started offering outpatient services for men, we’ve been asked when an intensive outpatient program (IOP) for substance abuse would be available in York County.
We are happy to announce that Crossroads is now offering an IOP for men at our Kennebunk Counseling Center office at 2 Livewell Drive, Suite 202. The men-only group is offered Monday – Thursday from 9am – 12pm and is facilitated by Bryce Libby, LCSW, LADC and Chuck Schneider, LCSW, C-CATODSW.
IOP provides the intensive education and support necessary in early sobriety, with a major focus on developing relapse prevention skills. At Crossroads, gender-focused treatment allows for a more substantial focus on the unique clinical needs of men and women.
Not sure if an IOP is right for you or someone you may be referring? Here are some reasons a person might opt for IOP over a regular outpatient counseling session or residential treatment (at Crossroads):
- Clients can explore their substance abuse problem in a supportive group setting without committing to an inpatient program
- IOP provides more structure than once per week counseling for a person that may be waiting to start an inpatient program
- Participants can receive intensive substance abuse treatment while also having the ability to work, parent and participate in daily activities
- IOP can be a good transition for those just completing a residential treatment program
- Clients can learn from their peers and keep themselves accountable, while also having access to a licensed counselor on a regular basis
- Participants have the ability to attend outside support groups, such as AA, and build their support system
