Educare Low-Intensity outpatient Program (1.5 hours per week)
Not everyone who attends outpatient at Educare wants to stop using alcohol or drugs. But everyone wants to protect things they value. The Educare outpatient program is about strategies to reduce the risks of losing things we value. It is an opportunity to explore, evaluate and change our course. It is an opportunity to reset. It is an opportunity to develop new strategies for living. The course is 16 sessions with three opportunities to attend weekly. This project is funded under a grant contract with the State of Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
Intensive outpatient program – (9 hours per week)
The Intensive Outpatient Program at Educare is comprised of three weekly group therapy sessions, three times per week. In a group setting, individuals learn about mental health, substance use and abuse and how to cope with life’s daily stressors. Participants are introduced to a number of evidence based modalities that can increase the change process. This project is funded under a grant contract with the State of Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
Opioid Addiction Treatment Program
Educare’s qualified and trained professionals can provide counseling for people who choose to use medically assisted recovery methods. Opioid dependence is much more than its physical symptoms. The way you feel and the way you act are also part of your dependence – and that means that counseling isn’t just a “nice to have”, but an essential part of your treatment. In fact, medication and counseling together can help you stay in treatment and improve the likelihood of success.
Counseling can help you learn ways to cope with social situations or events associated with past drug use, and learn skills that can help you recognize the triggers that stimulate cravings.
Educare will help you to meet your counseling requirements for doctors who prescribe medication to assist with opioid dependence.
Community Treatment Collaborative (CTC)
Educare provides relapse prevention & motivational enhancement groups to state probationers. These groups are L.I.O.P. & consist of 16 sessions to complete the course. This project is funded under a grant contract with the State of Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
