Group Services

Crisis & Counseling Centers (C&C) offers a variety of recovery group programs for adults in all stages of change from substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Please check back, as group options may shift throughout the year to meet community needs.

Motivational Enhancement Therapy: This group offers an opportunity for individuals struggling with mixed feelings around substance use and co-occurring disorders. Members can discuss their relationship with substance use and how it may have an impact on their mental health issues in a welcoming, nonjudgmental environment. This group may be particularly helpful before accessing IOPs.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs): This group is a structured treatment program primarily for people with substance use problems, but also welcome people who have co-occurring mental health concerns. The program focuses on offering support, routine and skill building to foster a strong start in recovery. An IOP group usually runs four days a week from four to eight weeks. 

Relapse Prevention Group: This group focuses on an abstinence-based lifestyle and is offered to individuals seeking more support and coping skills to lead to a successful recovery. This group may be particularly helpful to those just leaving an IOP group. 

Seeking Safety: This group is offered to women only. Seeking Safety supports women in all stages of recovery from trauma who want to learn coping skills to treat trauma and co-occurring substance abuse disorders.
