Level of Care:



Outside In conducts evaluations with adolescents or adults to determine if treatment is necessary and what service would best meet the client’s needs. Outside In’s Substance Abuse Treatment Services can provide treatment on an Outpatient or Intensive Outpatient level of care. The Outpatient Program views addiction as a primary, chronic disease with genetic, psycho-social and environmental factors influencing development and manifestation. Their clinical work is guided in part by the Transtheoretical “stages of change” model based on research conducted by Prochaska and DeClemente. All individuals, despite diverse and complex backgrounds go through five distinct phases of change with predictable processes at each stage.

Intensive Outpatient:

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.

Individualized Treatment:

Students focusing primarily on pro-social adolescent development and skill building. Weekly progress evaluations between staff and students examine strengths and needs. These individual sessions applaud improvement, target trouble areas and set new goals.

Aftercare Support:

An aftercare plan or Single Plan is developed for every student within 30 days of admission, updated quarterly and finalized as discharge nears. Aftercare services are identified and coordinated with referring agents and parents/guardians. They prepare their students for the transition back to home, school and community by increasing family involvement in case planning and through therapeutic home passes. They facilitate school re-enrollment or coordinate GED and vocational classes.

Treatment Focus:



The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Substance Abuse:

Substance rehabs focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Dual Diagnosis:

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Services are competent for co-occurring disorders and the level of care is determined based on the ASAM Adolescent Patient Placement Criteria.

Therapy Programs:


Group Therapy:

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). Adolescent group sessions provide valuable peer-to-peer dialogue and feedback that stimulates fresh perspectives regarding recovery. Groups are formed as needed and may be held in client-friendly locations throughout the county.

Family Therapy:

Multidimensional Family Therapy (MDFT) is an innovative and evidence-based family-driven drug abuse recovery program for adolescents and their families. MDFT is recognized as one of the most promising interventions for substance abuse, working with families in their home, school and community. MDFT looks at all of the components in a teen’s life to promote positive, long term change. Outside In began MDFT in March 2009. The clinical staff of Outside In has found that the operating principles of MDFT relate well to the work that has been taking place in their agency for years. MDFT is effective in helping youth ages 11-21 with substance abuse. Families who are experiencing some type of family or parent/child issue should consider participation in the service.

Individual Therapy:

Individual sessions may be combined with family sessions and group sessions to enhance progress. Face-to-face time is coupled with telephone and teleconferencing techniques in a manner similar to many of SAMHSA’s model programs. This allows for frequent, responsive and timely treatment opportunities in a client-friendly and cost-efficient delivery system. Client satisfaction and outcomes information is gathered during treatment and post-discharge.

Motivational Interviewing:

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.

Life Skills:

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.
