The Silver Linings Intensive Outpatient Program is an integrated gender-responsive intensive outpatient program (IOP) consisting of three therapeutic groups four times per week specifically for women over the age of 18 who have given birth to a child that has been diagnosed with NAS (Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome) or are at risk of giving birth to a child with NAS due to prenatal opioid use. This program is located at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital and is able to address some of the unique issues facing chemically dependent women, including prenatal care, childcare issues, parenting concerns, history of trauma (e.g., domestic violence or sexual abuse), co-dependency, and other relationship issues. Wraparound services will also be available to the women in the program as well as their families as appropriate.
Participating women will receive free dinners as part of the IOP group sessions.
The Intensive Outpatient (IOP) groups meet on Monday through Thursday nights from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.
