Susan Launches ‘Reflections’, a new Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment Program

Posted on: Wednesday, July 25th, 2012  In: Blog

I am thrilled to announce a new collaborative effort with my colleague Don Sloane designed to provide continuing substance abuse treatment and outpatient care through a recovery support group aimed at professionals.

We have launched Reflections Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment.  Reflections is offering an after/continuing care group for “Professionals in Recovery” that will meet Wednesdays, 7:30 to 9:00pm. 

Reflections targets a niche population, addressing a unique need in the recovery community.  It will be 12-step based, not “requiring” participation in 12-step meetings, but working from their principles and tapping into their profoundly successful ideology.  The program will also focus on relapse prevention, exploring relapse triggers and offering behavioral, cognitive and interventional guidance so that patients can increase their self-awareness and stay clean and sober one day at a time.

Reflections is appropriate as a stand-alone therapeutic option.  It is also appropriate for patients in individual therapy, and we look forward to collaborating with individual therapists to team around patient health.  Specifically, Reflections is designed for the following audiences:

  • those completing inpatient treatment for substance abuse or addictive behaviors
  • those completing an intensive outpatient program for substance abuse
  • those who have stopped using chemicals or “acting out” in addictive ways but who would benefit from a weekly therapeutic support group.
