Crossroads’ first Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for men will begin this month at its Greater Portland Counseling Center in Scarborough, ME. The IOP will start on January 23rd and will be offered Monday through Thursday from 5:00pm – 8:00pm.
Since expanding outpatient services to men at the end of 2011, Crossroads’ goal has been to offer an IOP for men with substance abuse problems. As with the women-only IOP groups, this new IOP for men will focus on the unique needs of male clients.
About Crossroads’ Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Crossroads’ IOP is a structured group therapy option that provides substance abuse treatment either 3, 4 or 5 days per week at 3 hours a day. Gender-specific treatment issues are explored in IOP with an emphasis on addiction education, co-occurring mental health issues, coping skills, relapse prevention and the necessary tools for recovery. Total length of treatment varies, but is typically around 6 – 8 weeks.
