Palmetto’s Intensive Outpatient Program for Chemical Dependency subscribes to the theory of addiction as a chronic, progressive and potentially fatal disease. The disease has biological, psychological and social repercussions for the individual and the family. Our Outpatient Program is used as either a primary treatment modality or transitional treatment modality following a residential stay. The length of the program is based on the patient’s individual needs and the assessments from the counselor and patient’s physician.

The Intensive Outpatient Program for Chemical Dependency provides intensive treatment for clients with substance abuse problems or a combination of substance abuse and co-occurring psychological disorders. Clients participate in the treatment program three evenings a week, allowing them to maintain their employment or educational status and live at home while receiving the vital help they need. The Program includes educating clients on the disease concept and determining their stage of abuse/addiction; identifying psychosocial stressors that lead to substance abuse; treating the addiction following the 12-step model; providing drug and alcohol education; and providing relapse prevention education.

Palmetto currently has six locations throughout Louisiana offering this program. Intensive outpatient treatment is available in Alexandria, LA, Lafayette, LA, Lake Charles, LA, Monroe, LA, Shreveport, LA, and and New Orleans/Metarie, LA.

All locations offer no-cost assessments.
