For adults who are just beginning to show signs of drug or alcohol addiction, the Odyssey House adult outpatient program is here to help. If you or a family member is experiencing trouble at work, a change in behavior or familial stress due to drugs or alcohol, it might be time to consider outpatient care.
The Odyssey House adult outpatient program consists of a total 32 group therapy sessions, with sessions held in twice a week for 16 weeks. Sessions are held in the evenings to accommodate for work and school schedules.
Intensive Outpatient Program
The Odyssey House intensive outpatient program is designed for adults who need more help getting their drug or alcohol use under control, but are either unwilling or unable to commit to an inpatient program. Based in Salt Lake City, the Odyssey House intensive outpatient program is as rigorous as you can get without enrolling in inpatient care — meaning you get the benefits of an intensive program with the flexibility of staying in control of your personal life.
The program consists of 16 hours of group therapy and an individual therapy session per week, or more if necessary. Intensive outpatient sessions are held in the evenings to accommodate for work and school schedules.
Group and individual therapy sessions address:
- Mental health disorders
- Personal & familial relationships
- Physical health
- Overall attitude
