Intensive Outpatient Program

Treatment Approach
I owe my sobriety, health, and my life to the staff at Silver Hill. Each one of them went above and beyond. I cannot express my gratitude in words as it comes directly from my heart. The people that work here have given me another chance at life.

The skills you need to live your life

We provide an evening Intensive Outpatient Program appropriate for patients diagnosed with an addiction or co-occurring disorders who do not require residential treatment, but do need counseling and skill building to function effectively. Participants in this program maintain a therapeutic relationship with a community-based therapist and come to Silver Hill two or three times a week for three hours of group therapy led by licensed clinicians.

What we treat

Addiction is a complex disease with both emotional and physical components. It is characterized by substance use that is compulsive or difficult to control despite negative or harmful consequences.

The types of addiction disorders we treat include the abuse of

Alcohol to control mood.
Opioids to elevate mood or relieve pain.
