Basic Outpatient Counseling Program
The Basic Outpatient Counseling Program at ADS is approximately 8 weeks in length. However, a client’s actual time in the program is gauged on his or her success in meeting their treatment goals. Clients referred into basic outpatient have met criteria for a diagnosis of Substance Abuse.
Goals for Basic Outpatient clients include examining their past and current use of substances, and exploring what choices they may wish to make in order to avoid future problems with alcohol or drugs. Basic Outpatient consists primarily of group counseling sessions which are held once per week over the 8 week period. Individual counseling is provided as needed.
Random urinalysis drug testing is an important component of the Basic Outpatient program. Only clients who achieve a negative urinalysis (sometimes referred to as a “clean drug test”) are allowed to successfully complete the program. If a client is having difficulty meeting their treatment goals, then ADS treatment staff will meet with the client and discuss increasing the client’s treatment to a more intensive level in order to help them be successful.
