A BETTER TOMORROW LAUNCHES INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT (IOP) TREATMENT PROGRAMS FOR INDIVIDUALS WHO SUFFER FROM ADDICTIONS TO ALCOHOL, GAMBLING, PRESCRIPTION DRUGS AND CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES
The programs, which are now covered by most health insurance providers, are designed for southwest Riverside County residents with minor addictions as well as recovering addicts who believe they could benefit from follow-up treatment services
MURRIETA, Calif., June 6, 2007 ¾ A Better Tomorrow is now providing intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment services for recovering addicts as well as individuals who need help overcoming addictions to alcohol, gambling, prescription drugs or controlled substances.
“We are offering this new service as a convenience to southwest Riverside County residents so that they can receive treatment for drug, alcohol or gambling addictions without disrupting their work schedules,” said Jerrod Menz, A Better Tomorrow’s president. He said the clinic’s outpatient programs are specifically designed for individuals with minor addictions as well as recovering addicts who need follow up treatment services.
Unlike A Better Tomorrow’s standard 28-day inpatient treatment program, which includes 36 hours a week of counseling and group activities, the outpatient program provides three hours of treatment three days a week. Sessions are available in the evening, although morning and mid-day sessions are also available upon request.
“Our new outpatient treatment program is ideal for people who want to stop their addictive behavior before it takes over their lives,” Menz said. “It also gives people the ability to quietly deal with their addiction issues in a responsible way without having to take time off of work.
Most major health insurance providers, including Cigna, Magellan, PHCS, MHN and Value Options, cover A Better Tomorrow’s intensive outpatient treatment services, although out of network agreements can also be negotiated. “If we find that an individual requires more intensive treatment than what we normally provide on an outpatient basis, we will contact their insurance provider to see what other treatment options they will cover,” Menz said.
Based in Murrieta, Calif., A Better Tomorrow has the highest level of certification of any drug or alcohol treatment center in southwest Riverside County. The clinic is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), placing it in the top 5 percent of drug and alcohol treatment clinics in California.
