At FHE Health, we recognize that addiction is not something that can be treated in a moment. The process takes time, and in some cases, intensive treatment is necessary.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimates that 90 percent of adults in the U.S. who need addiction and substance abuse treatment don’t receive it. Those who do receive treatment are more likely to thrive if they continue to receive care after an initial inpatient stay.
Inpatient treatment is a full-time commitment that’s not feasible for everyone. Outpatient care, with a comparatively high success rate, can also work for people who want to be able to continue to live at home in a supportive environment. The goal is to help individuals achieve long-term sobriety with treatment that fits their unique needs and situations.
Beginning Your Treatment with Inpatient Care
Those in need of addiction treatment may wish to enroll in our inpatient treatment program as a first step. This program begins with medical detox and includes intensive care to help the individual stabilize their health and improve their wellbeing. It also includes treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety.
Inpatient services are available at our campus-style facility, where patients receive an intensive treatment plan that includes: individual, group and family therapy; neuro-rehabilitative services; spiritual workshops; fitness classes; meals; care management and discharge planning services.
After the inpatient care program, many individuals transition to outpatient care. This is where they can continue to receive high-quality care but are able to live in a less intensive setting, such as their own home or a sober living house.
During their time in outpatient treatment, patients continue to follow a specialized program depending on their unique needs. FHE provides a broad scope of programs, including first responders, women’s programs, gambling therapy, and others. By providing patients with outstanding support during this transition and afterward, we can help encourage their long-term success and limit relapse opportunities.
Obtaining Treatment Through Outpatient Care
Not all patients begin in inpatient care. For some, coming to FHE exclusively for outpatient care is a better fit for their budgets, work and home responsibilities, and lifestyle preferences. Beginning with outpatient care is particularly effective when the individual doesn’t need medical detox and they have a sober home environment as added support.
At FHE, our experienced team works one-on-one with patients to build a comprehensive, cohesive plan that addresses any concerns regarding treatment formats.
Our Outpatient Services
We offer several outpatient services to provide customized care for each individual. Patients work with a team of professionals to determine the type of care that’s best for their unique situation.
Our partial hospitalization program provides managed, step-down treatment. It allows individuals to move from intensive care in our residential program to a more independent life.
Patients in PHP aren’t required to live in a specific location, but they spend most of their waking hours in recovery activities. In most cases, individuals are in group therapy sessions, individual counseling, and medication management and administration from around 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily or 25-30 hours weekly.
While PHP doesn’t have the same intensive environment as inpatient care, it’s designed to be the individual’s primary priority. At this time, patients learn how to remain healthy while managing their time and interacting with loved ones.
PHP treatment allows individuals to demonstrate that they can care for themselves as well as maintain all the progress they’ve made during the recovery process. During PHP, patients also have access to the levels of care they need, including neuro-rehabilitation work. In most cases, they continue to receive care from our psychiatric providers and medical team throughout this transition period.
To help patients move forward, we also provide care for their families. Our family intensive program allows participants to learn how to cope outside of the residential setting and aims to provide their families with the education they need to support their loved ones in treatment. At this time, patients continue to have access to services such as:
- A medical team and psychiatric providers
- Individual therapy
- Career services
- Neuro-rehabilitation services
- Dialectical behavior therapy (if applicable)
- Family intensive programming
Our full continuum of care allows patients to transition from the full-time residential model to partial hospitalization. Throughout this process, individuals take back control of their lives in a safe, supportive setting, building confidence and healthy habits that promote sobriety. They continue to have support from the team they’ve built a solid relationship with and the programs they’ve become accustomed to using.
Intensive Outpatient Program
Our Intensive Outpatient Program is a step down from partial hospitalization and bridges the gap between inpatient and outpatient care, empowering individuals to take back control of their lives as they build the lifestyle they want. Rather than spending most of their time in treatment, patients attend treatment about 15 hours per week. Therapy is available in the morning and evening, making it easier for patients to work around their job schedules and family obligations.
During IOP, which is managed by the individual’s team of medical doctors and psychiatric professionals, patients gradually become more independent. Over time, they learn to use the skills they practiced during therapy to make better decisions long term. Patients are still in treatment and have regular appointments, but they begin to handle more of their personal affairs, including self-care, finding a job and functioning within a family.
IOP provides clients with access to many of the programs they need, including:
- Psychiatric and medical provider access
- Specialized therapies
- Ongoing individual therapy
- Follow-up care on an ongoing basis
Those in our outpatient treatment program have the ability to live independently. This may be back home with their families, or it could be living in a sober living environment, depending on what options are best. Patients continue to work with the same team and in the same specialized programs that address their needs and challenges. By providing this constant level of support, we help patients develop the tools they need to succeed.
On FHE Health Campus
Patients who are a part of FHE Health campus have access to a wide range of supportive services. This includes all of our facilities and the alumni community, which can offer insight and guidance in a unique way to those fighting substance abuse. Our campus offers a therapeutic, welcoming environment with holistic services such as spiritual guidance, neuro rehabilitative services and acupuncture.
Because we can provide such a quality facility with a diverse number of services on hand, many of those who seek treatment with us have a strong structure for continued recovery available to them. As a part of our outpatient care, every individual is able to tap into these resources whenever extra support is necessary and beneficial.
Our Sober Living Care
For those seeking outpatient substance abuse treatment, the benefits of sober living cannot be underestimated. Our sober living environments create a place that’s safe for patients who are receiving residential or outpatient care.
While sober living is typically associated with those in addiction treatment, this environment is also beneficial for those managing mental illnesses. It serves as a safe place for those who’ve completed a residential care program but aren’t ready to move back home or who don’t live locally.
Ultimately, the goal of sober living homes is to put boundaries in place to prevent relapse. Residents have predictable daily routines with household responsibilities, curfews, and monitoring from mental health professionals. While this environment isn’t necessarily right for everyone in treatment, it can help residents learn to be independent without jeopardizing the progress they’ve made.
Transition Options Available
FHE Health offers a number of transitional programs to help individuals move through the path toward recovery. For many, this begins in detox and residential care. However, we also offer options such as:
- Transitioning from residential to partial hospitalization
- Moving from residential to day/night level of care
- Transitioning from partial hospitalization to intensive outpatient programs
- Transitioning from day/night care to intensive outpatient program
In both residential and outpatient care, the ultimate goal is to help individuals manage their time and develop life skills and coping mechanisms that support long-term sobriety. Each patient’s needs are unique, and every individual receives customized care. From the start of care through completion, our team is available to work closely with patients to help them achieve their goal of recovery.
Every level of care requires access to medical support, so medical integration is a component of all our outpatient treatment services. This type of care is a valuable tool for success and is encouraged for those who need it. We have an experienced medical team of professionals accessible to those who need them.
At FHE, the medical care we provide helps to address the physical challenges individuals face as a result of drug or alcohol abuse and mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety.
In some cases, for example, those who’ve spent years drinking alcohol excessively may have damaged their stomach lining, a condition that’s very painful. In other cases, individuals experience changes to their brain’s chemical balances, making it very difficult for them to achieve sobriety.
Our medical care addresses issues such as these, helping individuals manage pain, symptoms or mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression, and the discomfort of drug detox. It also helps to prevent complications related to the detox process, including seizures, hallucinations, and cardiac arrest.
When beginning any program at FHE Health, patients receive a full medical workup to ensure they are stable. Our team of doctors can provide medication assistance when needed to help reach that goal.
Our comprehensive medical integration includes services such as:
- A full team of licensed medical doctors to assist in your needs
- Psychiatric professionals to provide full evaluations and support throughout your care
- Access to ketamine infusion therapy
- Medication management for psychiatric care patients
- Ongoing medical care for any medical conditions present
- Massage therapy
- Weight management support
- Smoking cessation programs
Throughout the residential and outpatient treatment programs, patients continue to receive medical care to help them address health issues that contribute to or result from their addiction. We also provide support for neuro-rehab needs as well through research-backed treatments such as EMDR therapy.
FHE Health is a comprehensive provider that specializes in a full scope of addiction and mental health conditions. We encourage those in need of any level of service to contact us for immediate help.
