Connections provides substance abuse and mental health individual therapy. Our staff takes a unique approach to individual therapy based on practices that identify and build on the strengths of each individual. We work to provide best matches of patient needs to our diverse staff.
Intensive Outpatient Counseling
The intensive outpatient program (IOP) at Connections is a 24 session group that meets 3 sessions per week and 3 hours per session. The IOP format includes addiction education, relapse prevention, recovery speakers, social support, art therapy, meditation, yoga, and experiential activities.
We have support groups for everyone at Connections Counseling
Connections Counseling offers a variety of groups to meet the needs of all ages, genders, and specific areas of focus. Group duration is typically at least 90 days with options to continue or become a group mentor.
Groups provide positive support ranging from recovery, anxiety, depression, and other co-occurring topics. As our clients attend groups, they have opportunities to decrease isolation, increase social connections and feel the true essence of acceptance and hope by both peers and staff.
