Outpatient Treatment


Recovery Classes

Our outpatient treatment program starts with eight classes that focus on the basics of recovery:

  • Session One: Values – understanding personal values and prioritizing needs versus wants.
  • Session Two: Four Quadrants Of Awareness – identifying likes/dislikes of using/not using.
  • Session Three: Disease Of Addiction – understanding the bio-psycho-social effects of substance use disorder.
  • Session Four: Mistaken Beliefs – how to differentiate abstinence from recovery.
  • Session Five: Recovery – understanding the  principles of recovery and practicing them in sessions, as well as in daily life.
  • Session Six: Partial Recovery – identifying stuck points and develop alternative options.
  • Session Seven: Relapse Prevention Planning – how to list components of relapse and formulate a recovery plan.
  • Session Eight: Family – understanding and identifying the roles in the chemically dependent and dysfunctional family.

These classes are held at 6:00 PM Monday & Wednesday and at 11:00 AM Tuesday & Thursday.


Therapy Groups

Once the educational component is completed, participants become part of a ten-week therapeutic process group that is led by a certified counselor.

The purpose of the process groups is to help participants implement what they learned in the classes and to support their desire to continue to grow in recovery.

These groups meet on Monday and Wednesday evenings at 6:00 pm. and at 9:30 am Tuesdays and Thursdays.


Individual Counseling

While involved in the classes and group therapy, participants meet once a week with a substance use disorder counselor or a peer specialist who is certified by the Missouri Credentialing Board.An individualized treatment plan is developed and updated for all participants. While involved in the program, a weekly drug test is also required.
