What is Outpatient Treatment?

An Outpatient Recovery Center or ORC, combines the core components of full-time treatment with the flexibility of part-time scheduling. IOP participants attend regular therapy and treatment sessions at an outpatient facility, typically for a few hours per day, three to five days per week. Outside of their treatment hours, they are free to attend work or school, be with their family or pursue sober hobbies. These programs are often most appropriate for two types of patients: those whose addictions are not acute enough to require residential treatment, and those whose lifestyles prevent them from attending full-time care. At Cumberland Heights, our downtown Nashville IOP is designed for people whose needs and schedules vary. We work with every client to create an individualized recovery plan that treats the whole person, not just the addiction.

Prior to enrollment in our program, all patients complete the admissions process and go through a short orientation session, including a review of patient expectations, safety guidelines, and program components. During treatment, each patient works closely with their counselor/case manager in setting personal treatment goals and developing a custom treatment plan. The counselor coordinates and collaborates with referrals for any ancillary health, vocational or psychological needs the patient may have.

Our downtown Nashville, Music Row ORC is structured to include individual counseling, experiential learning groups, family education groups and group counseling. A range of topics will be 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 12 Steps of Alcoholics/Narcotics Anonymous, and participation in local 12-Step support groups is required to complement and reinforce our programming. For patients with close family members, we strongly recommend participation our family program, which helps ensure a healthy sober home life and offers support for family members who have struggled to understand their loved one’s disease.

We ensure our patients’ compliance with abstinence for the duration of our outpatient program through random urine drug screens. A patient’s length of stay is usually 28 sessions, but this 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.

Music Row outpatient services include:


Our trained clinical staff evaluates every patient upon admission and on an ongoing basis for the duration of the program. This allows us to ensure that our patients get the right kind of treatment for their needs, that their enrollment in our IOP makes sense for them at this stage of their recovery and that they make progress through treatment toward lasting recovery. We can help identify the severity of an addiction as well as co-occurring mental health disorders, and we can connect every individual with the right resources to get the help that is most appropriate for their needs and lifestyle.

Group Counseling

Community engagement and support is essential for recovery, in both the short and long term. Our outpatient programs incorporate group counseling to help our patients form bonds, practice interpersonal relationship skills, learn appropriate boundaries and discover the benefits of sharing their experiences with others. Group counseling may include a variety of therapeutic activities, from group process talk therapy to psychodrama and role-playing.

Family Counseling

A common phrase in the world of addiction treatment is that “addiction is a family disease” — in essence, this means that addiction does not only affect the individual who is struggling with substance abuse. The effects of addiction spread to those around them, whether the actions of the addicted individual intentionally or unintentionally hurt their loved ones or whether the loved ones themselves harbor negative emotions like anger, guilt or blame. Providing family counseling offers our patients and their families an opportunity to heal and move forward together.
