Redirections is an after-school intensive outpatient program for teens 13-18 who have substance abuse and/or Co-occurring issues. The program provides group psycho-education and therapy Monday-Thursday for three hours per day in Knox, Hamblen and surrounding counties. Family participation is an essential component to the program. Clients learn and practice skills in communication, problem solving, conflict resolution and refusal techniques in response to peer pressure. They are also involved in experiential exercises, introduced to community support groups and engaged in the development of a personal recovery plan. Groups are supplemented by individual therapy and case management as needed and after-care services are provided upon graduation from the program. Clients typically receive 8-10 weeks of IOP prior to stepping down to a lower level of care.
Redirections also provides case management for clients with co-occurring disorders who are NOT enrolled in the IOP. These services may be used for after-care, continued support post-residential, or as a lower intensity of care prior to the need for IOP.
The Intervention Program meets one hour per week for six sessions offering psycho-educational classes and supportive groups.
