While Clean & Sober Recovery Services has offered residential treatment since 2008, our intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is brand new. It’s a versatile program that people can use to reclaim their health in a number of ways.  

First, let’s look at the basics of intensive outpatient treatment: Participants in our IOP attend day and evening classes for  for up to twelve weeks. In those day or evening classes, participants receive one-on-one and group counseling from one of the CSRS certified drug and alcohol counselors. Using a cognitive behavioral therapy approach, they tackle topics such as the disease of addiction, life skills, family recovery, anger management, triggers and relapse prevention. They’ll get connected to the local twelve-step community. And they’ll build their muscle for sustained recovery through life’s ups and downs.

Fast forward to 2017, and the country boasts the fewest drinking, smoking and drug-taking youth on the continent. How did Iceland get teens to say No to alcohol and other drugs?

Offering an ultimatum can be a powerful tool in prompting a beloved child (of any age) to seek help. And I try to avoid the language of “kicking your kid out of your home” because that sets them up as victims, with the parent calling all the shots.  It is disrespectful to them. The truth is you aren’t kicking your son or daughter out; you are giving them a CHOICE to get treatment for a potentially deadly brain disease that drives their deceitful, dangerous and manipulative behavior. You are also giving them the choice to live somewhere else, wherever that might be.
