At the New York Center for Living, we understand that recovery is an ongoing process and everone's need for support and guidance varies. For some of you, this may be your first exposure to substance abuse treatment, whereas for others, it may be your second or third treatment program. As such, we offer four different treatment phases to meet your family wherever you are in this journey.
- IOP: Intensive Outpatient Track:
The IOP track is the most intensive and supportive treatment track designed for clients whose use of substances has caused considerable disruption in many areas of their life (emotional, academic, family, social, etc.) and who may abuse or are dependent upon alcohol and/or other drugs. A client and his/her family enrolled in this track will be seen at least 7 hours or more per week for individual, group, family, and psychiatric services.
- OP: Outpatient and Continuing Care Track:
The Outpatient track is a less intensive phase for clients who are experiencing some disruption in their lives due to alcohol and other drug use, but do not necessarily have a diagnosis of serious abuse or dependence. A client and his/her family enrolled in either the Outpatient or the Continuing Care tracks will be seen under 7 hours per week for individual, group, family, and psychiatric services. The Continuing Care phase is for clients who have completed the IOP track, either at NYCFL or an alternative treatment program, and do not require the high level of support and monitoring provided by our more intensive phases. Clients at thsi level have already established some stability in their life, but require continued support as they solidify their commitment to a sober life. Clients and his/her family at this level will be seen under 7 hours per week.
- Outpatient Sessions:
Client’s who are not assigned to one of the aforementioned tracks, may, if clinically appropriate, be seen for individual sessions with a primary therapist.
- Parent/Guardian Only Track:
This track is for a Parent or Guardian who needs services but does not have a child who is currently receiving services at NYCFL. Services available include: parent support/education groups, parent coaching sessions, and individual or couples sessions.
During the assessment process, the clinical team will recommend the treatment phase that is most appropriate for your family to initially engage in; however, this will be reevaluated regularly to ensure that you are continuously receiving the right amount of treatment services. Movement between phases may occur at any time, and is based on achieving ones' treatment goals.
