Tucson’s Chemical Dependence Intensive Outpatient Program (CDIOP)

At Sonora Behavioral Health Hospital in Tucson, we know that treatment is never a one-size-fits-all experience. If you are struggling with a substance abuse problem, the type and severity of your addiction will have a great impact on the type of treatment program and level of care that will most optimally meet your needs.

For this reason, and because it is our goal to accommodate clients’ schedules, we are pleased to offer an evening chemical dependency intensive outpatient program (CDIOP) to our existing Day Program.

Individuals in Tucson who may be appropriate for participation in our evening CDIOP include the following:

  • Individuals who are ages 18 or older.
  • Individuals who have completed a higher level of care, such as an inpatient treatment program, a residential treatment program, or treatment in a partial hospitalization program (PHP), and are in need of a step-down level of care.
  • Individuals who do not require the intense nature of programming that is offered in higher levels of care, yet need a more structured treatment setting than that which is offered in traditional outpatient therapeutic settings.
  • Individuals who are not a danger to themselves or others.
  • Individuals who have a structured home environment.

Our evening chemical dependency intensive outpatient program is an ideal choice for men and women who meet the above criteria, and who also need a programming option that accommodates their daily work schedules and family commitments. By offering evening sessions, we are able to ensure that people in Tucson can get the help that they need without interfering with their ability to adhere to their daily responsibilities.

Our CDIOP meets on the following days:

During the Day:

  • Mondays: 1:00pm-4:00pm
  • Tuesdays: 1:00pm-4:00pm
  • Fridays: 12:00pm – 3:00pm

In the Evenings:

  • Mondays: 5:30pm-8:30pm
  • Wednesdays: 5:30pm-8:30pm
  • Fridays: 5:30pm-8:30pm

Treatment in any of our programs is always a fully customized experience, designed to meet each individual’s specific needs and address all of his or her concerns while simultaneously encouraging his or her strengths. That being said, there are a number of treatment modalities that we incorporate into different aspects of everyone’s programming. These modalities include the following:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • 12-Steps

Additionally, every individual who engages in our chemical dependency intensive outpatient program will be offered the opportunity to participate in the following therapeutic interventions:

Group therapy is the primary intervention used within our CDIOP. These groups occur during normal programming hours, for a total of three hours a day, for three days each week. In our experience, we have found that group therapy sessions can be immensely beneficial for individuals who are suffering from drug & alcohol addiction & chemical dependency, as well as for those who are suffering from co-occurring mental health conditions. In the group setting, individuals are able to share their own experiences while also learning from the experiences that are shared by other group members. Furthermore, within the group setting, individuals can encourage and support one another, allowing everyone to develop a sense of camaraderie, helping them to understand they are not alone in the struggles that they are facing.

In our evening CDIOP, group therapy is conducted by a licensed master level therapist who will cover both mental health and substance abuse topics. Additional Topics that may be discussed can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Acceptance skills
  • Change skills
  • Barriers to recovery
  • Triggers for relapse
  • Relapse prevention skills

Individual therapy is offered to CDIOP participants on an as-needed basis. Individual therapy sessions are not a typical part of programming, but can be implemented if it is determined that it would be beneficial to the person who is receiving services.

Family therapy is also offered on an as-needed basis to participants of our chemical dependency intensive outpatient program. If it is determined that a formal setting for family involvement and participation will be of benefit to the individual engaged in programming, sessions with a licensed therapist can be scheduled.

Experiential therapy is another service that is offered on an as-needed basis to CDIOP participants. Examples of these experiential therapies include the following:

  • Movement therapy
  • Art therapy

At Sonora Behavioral Health Hospital, we firmly believe that everyone has the ability to heal. And we understand that, in order for true healing to occur, individuals must engage in a program that is offered in an environment where they feel safe, comfortable, and supported. As such, we have made it a priority to ensure that those who seek care at our treatment center receive exactly that.

If you believe that you or an important person in your life might be able to benefit from participating in our evening chemical dependency intensive outpatient program, please contact our intake department and speak with one of our licensed professionals. Their knowledge and compassion will be demonstrated from the moment you first speak with them, assuring you that you have found a treatment center that places your wellbeing at the forefront of the care that is delivered.
