Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Phase I: The purpose of the group is to provide a supportive and interactive setting to increase participants' knowledge about the characteristics of addiction to drugs/alcohol, and provide basic, practical skills to help them obtain and maintain abstinence from their use. It is appropriate for anyone with a history of chemical dependency who is interested in maintaining abstinence from all substances. All clients in IOP will receive weekly, individual counseling in conjunction with groups. Currently, IOP group meets on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at Mt. Vernon Center from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Note: As of March 2020, IOP groups are on hold until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic.)

Participants must have maintained at least 30 days of abstinence from all substances to be eligible for this group. Outpatient group counseling takes place on Mondays and Wednesdays from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Mt. Vernon Center.

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) for Substance Use
If you are interested in medication to help support you in your recovery process, whether you are currently a OHRA patient or not, you should first contact us at 41.
What is Medication Assisted Treatment, or "MAT"? MAT covers a number of prescription medications that can help in the treatment of opiate use. Opiates can be prescription drugs, like Percocet and Oxycontin, or illegal drugs, like heroin. Medications may include different types of formulas that include buprenorphine (such as Zubsolv, Suboxone, Naltrexone or Subutex) or other medications such as Vivitrol, Naloxone or Acamprosate.
How is it used at OHRA? We promote substance use treatment as an integrated part of overall healthcare. In order to be a part of the Medication Assisted Treatment program, you must be a OHRA medical patient, as well as participate in our substance use program.
