Substance Abuse Group (Weekly Outpatient - WOP)
A cognitive-behavioral group based on the Strategies for Self-improvement and Change (SSC) curriculum developed in Denver by Kenneth Wanberg and Harvey Milkman. Clients will identify triggers underlying substance abuse, as well as develop individualized plans for change and relapse prevention. The program includes homework assignments and is based upon stages of change and motivational interviewing techniques. It is a process-based group designed to help clients reduce their risk of relapse while transitioning into the community. This group runs one time a week for two hours.
