Our Mission

It is the mission of Alternative Options Intensive Outpatient Program to provide comprehensive, structured treatment for mental health and the alcohol/chemically dependent person, their family, and significant others in a caring therapeutic environment.
The goal is to facilitate self-empowerment and enhance quality of life by helping individuals and families gain insight into the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of chemical dependency and mental health.

Treatment services are designed to support the recovery and well being of persons served and their families through education, group interaction, individual and family counseling. Through these various service modalities, the focus is not only on the restoration of functioning but on the development of new meaning and purpose as individuals and families grow beyond the problems associated with the concerns that led to treatment. Development of discharge plans include supporting the integration of the persons served and their family into the community as part of their long term recovery plan.
