Our services

Avenues Recovery is an intensive outpatient, co-occurring disorders clinic licensed by DHS and we have both mental health practitioners and substance use disorder personnel on staff.

Our care here starts by understanding you, your health, and your life to create a treatment plan that's right for you.

Treatment plan

We follow ASAM criteria for levels of care. Medium Intensity consists of 8 hours a week of group and one individual session and does not include housing. IOP plus lodging requires clients to attend treatment 20 hours a week, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. We have a Peer Recovery Specialist, who monitors our housing and can provide transportation to food shelves or other community-based services

Lodging

The length of stay IOP plus lodging is needs-based and generally lasts about 18 weeks. We do not require a housing deposit and clients can keep any money they earn. Clients are encouraged to seek employment if that is what they desire as long as it does not interfere with treatment service hours. We allow clients to keep their income so they can learn money management skills and be able to save for independent living following treatment. Our team works diligently to help our clients obtain or return to safe, supportive living environments. We offer step-down levels of care to keep people engaged in the entire process.
