Description of SARP services
  • Early Intervention (Level 0.5 Alcohol IMPACT) is a program intended for individuals whose problems and risk factors appear to be related to substance use but who do not meet the diagnostic criteria for substance related disorders. Early intervention services are designed to explore and address problems or risk factors that appear to be related to substance use, and to assist the individual in recognizing the harmful consequences of inappropriate substance use. Individuals diagnosed with a substance use disorder may attend all or part of the early intervention program as part of their treatment plan for outpatient services. IMPACT is an early intervention 20-hour education program that will be held at the local SARP Clinic.
  • Outpatient Treatment is an organized, nonresidential treatment service or an office practice with addiction professionals and clinicians providing professionally directed alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment. This treatment occurs in regularly scheduled sessions, usually totaling fewer than nine hours per week. Examples include weekly or twice-weekly individual therapy, weekly group therapy or a combination of the two in association with participation in self-help groups. This level is targeted at individuals meeting criteria for abuse or dependence who have stable or manageable medical or psychological problems, recognize their problems, appear able to resist use, and do not have a hostile home environment.
  • Intensive Outpatient Treatment (which includes partial hospitalization) is a planned and organized service in which addiction professionals and clinicians provide several treatment service components to clients. This level is targeted at participants meeting criteria for abuse or dependence who require multiple supportive contacts per week to avoid relapse, are having any medical or psychological problems addressed through consultation/referral, or who have continued to use substances during outpatient care. Treatment consists primarily of counseling and education about alcohol and other drug problems with ready access (within 24 hours by phone) to psychiatric, medical, and laboratory services. Treatment also typically addresses coping, nutrition, and vocational issues and may use multi-systemic therapy interventions instead of group work.
  • Residential Medically Monitored Intensive Inpatient Treatment can be described as an organized service conducted by addiction professionals and clinicians who provide a planned regimen of around-the-clock, professionally directed evaluation, care and treatment in a residential setting. This level of care includes 24-hour observation, monitoring and treatment by medical and/or non-medical staff. A multidisciplinary staff functions under medical supervision. 24-hour medical care is always available but not necessarily on site. This level targets participants who have unsafe living environments and need time to develop their recovery skills, and it includes medical monitoring of manageable medical or psychological problems.
  • Continuing Care is an aftercare program. Patients diagnosed with Alcohol Dependence or Abuse, who has successfully completed objectives outlined in their individual treatment plan, and meet ASAM criteria, will be placed in a continuing care status at the counseling center nearest their command. Continuing Care is designed to enhance transition into ongoing healthy life-styles.
