                            It is important for patients in IOP treatment to attend 3 hours per day/9 hours per week of group to fully benefit from this treatment.

               If a group is missed for part or all of the session, the patient’s insurance may not offer the IOP rate which could cause the patient’s copay to increase.

All groups are held at our Treatment Center at 4179 Riverboat Road, Ste.220 in Taylorsville.

 

Group Descriptions

 

Aftercare Group

This is a support group is for the alumni of Ascendant’s treatment program.

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for Trauma

CPT is an evidence-based treatment that focuses on solutions. Patients will be working on recognizing the impact of trauma on their life. This therapy helps patients understand and reconceptualize their traumatic event in a way that reduces its ongoing negative impact.  Patients will be taught adaptive coping strategies.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Skills and Processing

DBT is a highly effective, evidence-based therapy that teaches patients to regulate their emotions and thoughts and to understand their individual triggers that lead to harmful behavior. In this group patients will learn and practice adaptive skills.

Family Group

Families attend this group.  The focus is to provide education and support for family members.  Topics include understanding the disease of addiction and co-dependency while learning skills around differentiating their personal identity from the experience of their family member and integrating adaptive communication.

Family Mapping and Relationships

Historical family relationships are explored to understand the structure and dynamics.  This includes relationships between family members and between subsets of family members. Family mapping is used as a point of reference to develop strategies to improve relationships.

Gender-Specific Breakout Groups- Psychotherapy Processing

This provides an opportunity for men to relate to men and for women to relate to women.  Each gender group is led by a therapist or counselor of the same gender.  Patients process mutual concerns and goals while developing trust and caring, supportive relationships.

Mood Stabilization in Recovery

Mood disorders, including depression, anxiety and bipolar disorders, are the most common psychiatric co-morbidities among patients with substance use disorders. Treating a patient’s co-occurring mood disorders may reduce their substance craving and relapses and enhance their overall outcomes. Along with medication patients will learn to recognize how their moods interact with urges and cravings and learn skills to manage moods by changing thoughts; feelings; and behaviors.

Parenting Skills Breakout Group

This group is offered for patients with children with a focus on developing successful parenting strategies.

Recognizing and Changing Maladaptive Thinking Errors

Thinking errors, commonly known as cognitive distortions, are irrational beliefs that contribute to uncomfortable emotions and unwanted behaviors. These include mind reading, feelings as facts, blowing things up, and more. Addictive thinking patterns are, in fact, distorted thoughts. … between the action and how it feels – influencing continued substance abuse. … Errors in thinking are standard if you are addicted to alcohol or other substances. Learning to recognize and control these thoughts decrease relapse potential in individuals struggling with chemical dependency.

Relapse Prevention Planning

Patients develop individual relapse prevention plans to support a successful long-term recovery.  Each week plans are reviewed to identify challenges and opportunities. The plan involves developing awareness and understanding of early warning signs of relapse and personal triggers.

Relapse Prevention Therapy

Patients discuss individual recovery challenges and relapse.  Through this process the patient gains insight and works through barriers to success.

 

8 Dimensions of Wellness and Wellness Planning

Using the Eight Dimensions of Wellness, patients work to identify individual needs and develop a plan to improve the quality of life that will support a successful long-term recovery.
