What is Outpatient Treatment?

Cumberland Heights’ Outpatient Recovery Center (ORC) in Chattanooga Tennessee is designed for people whose needs and schedules vary. A quality intensive outpatient drug and alcohol rehab program will be designed to treat the whole person, not just the addiction.

Prior to enrollment in the program, all patients complete an admission process and receive orientation including a review of patient expectations, safety guidelines, and program components. During treatment each patient works closely with their counselor/case manager in planning treatment goals and developing an individualized treatment plan. The counselor coordinates and collaborates with referrals for ancillary health, vocational or psychological needs the patient may have.

The Chattanooga ORC is structured to include individual counseling, experiential learning groups, family education groups, and group counseling. A range of topics is discussed in treatment including, but not limited to medical aspects of addiction, disease progression, family disease, spirituality, recovery tools and relapse prevention. Patients are oriented to the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics/Narcotics Anonymous and participation in local twelve step support groups is required. Patient families are strongly urged to complete the family program. Compliance with abstinence is monitored through the use of random urine drug screens. A patient’s length of stay is usually 28 sessions but can be variable based upon the patient’s clinical needs and progress. Continuing care services, including onsite aftercare groups, are coordinated onsite for patients after completing the program.

  • Assessments conducted by trained clinical staff
