A range of substance abuse treatment programs is available at The Kent Center through which
clients receive clinically appropriate levels of services (based on the American Society of Addiction Medicine). All programs offer individual, family and group counseling; individualized
treatment planning; drug screens; addiction awareness and relapse prevention education, among other services. Our treatment programs include:
Kent Center Clients Create
a Collage of Hope & Gratitude
Substance Abuse Outpatient Counseling Services offer weekly individual or group counseling
sessions to clients who are abusing drugs and alcohol. Groups focusing on the specific issues of women or adolescents, or that address issues such as trauma, are often held. The length of
time a client is in treatment is based on their individual needs. As in all programs, the Center's commitment to clients is long-term and they may return for additional services if necessary. Weekday and evening appointments are available.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
- Day Program: This program offers a structured daily treatment option for clients
needing more intensive services than general outpatient services provide. The Intensive Outpatient Program is designed for individuals with significant substance abuse problems
who are prone to relapse and have limited coping skills. Transportation within Kent County may be provided. Clients attend treatment 3 days per week, for 4 weeks to 3
months. Treatment hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Evening Program: Our evening program is for individuals with significant substance
abuse problems coupled with a co-occurring mental health disorder. Our focus will be on providing clients with treatment for their mental health and substance issues
simultaneously and exploring with them the interactions between their diagnoses and behaviors. Once treatment is completed, clients are referred to an After Care Program
which will support clients in their recovery and help to prevent relapse. The evening program provides greater access to treatment for our clients who work during the day. Clients receive up to four weeks of treatment, three evenings a week. Treatment hours
are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
