Operation PAR’s outpatient services assess and identify the critical needs in your life and then take steps to find support and strategies to achieve your goals while maintaining your work and family commitments.
Operation PAR’s outpatient services provide youth and adults with opportunities to address substance use disorders, mental health conditions, and other concerns in an outpatient setting.
Through outpatient treatment, Operation PAR also provides therapeutic services that include group counseling and random drug screening to prevent relapse. Effective outpatient treatment requires that you do not need a medical detoxification and that you do have a stable living and work/school environment.
Learn What Outpatient Services Include
Outpatient services by Operation PAR cover a variety of mental, physical, and emotional health needs. You may not need all of the services we offer with our outpatient treatment, but we will always offer them and review their benefits with patients. A few of our outpatient services include:
Physical health screenings
HIV and Hepatitis risk education
Structured individual and/or group therapeutic counseling
Life management skills
Random drug screening
Psychiatric evaluations and treatment
Referrals for continuing care
Each patient is treated as an individual and placed in the appropriate level of care. Your needs and treatment plan are determined by an initial assessment, and/or an in-depth psychiatric evaluation.
As you work through your outpatient treatment plan, we may encounter specific additional needs that are not part of our outpatient services program. This is fairly common and not a problem for our trained staff. Operation PAR works closely with community organizations and can recommend you for various support groups and community or legal resources when appropriate.
Seek Treatment Through Adolescent Outpatient Services
Operation PAR’s Adolescent Outpatient Program provides therapy for youth and family whose substance use problems are not severe enough to require residential treatment. Participation in this program is based on the initial screening and assessment.
Our professional staff members use a combination of Motivational Enhancement Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MET/CBT) to work with youth who are fighting substance use. These might be the children with an unstable home life or students who perform poorly academically. This program typically lasts five sessions.
Adolescents navigating the legal system who join Operation PAR’s outpatient service program also receive support from the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice. The probation officer or other representative assigned to their case is involved in the outpatient process, and their recommendations are taken into consideration objectively along with our own assessments.
Many of the services offered to adult patients in our outpatient service programs are offered to adolescents and families as well.
