Intensive Day Treatment (IDT): Bridging the Gap
Willamette Family is a nationally recognized Health, Wellness, and Recovery center. Our goal is to continually improve our services to provide the highest quality of care to all. In our search to find new and innovative ways to help those seeking substance abuse treatment, we developed and launched a new program, Intensive Day Treatment.
Intensive Day Treatment is a level of care that fits snugly between 24-hour residential and intensive outpatient. Clients participating in substance abuse treatment services will now find smoother transitions between care levels allowing for dramatically improved outcomes. For those clients who would benefit from residential care, but are unable to participate, or those that are enrolled in outpatient, but need a slightly higher care level, Willamette Family’s Intensive Day Treatment program can meet those needs.
Intensive Day Treatment is new program of Willamette Family that is already demonstrating success in its ability to “bridge the gap” and meet the care needs of our clients recovering from substance abuse disorders.
Intensive Day Treatment is:
- 20 hours per week of counselor facilitated care
- Combination of education and therapy services such as: equine therapy, Tai Chi, relapse prevention, emotion regulation, and other therapeutic practices.
- Case management and recovery support services
- Individually designed service plans and activities
- Supported by a 24 hour crisis line
Client Testimony: Jennifer Replogle
I was born in Arizona and lived there for the first thirteen years of my life and when I turned fourteen I moved here to Oregon. I started hanging out with the wrong crowd and in that same year I started using meth. During this time, I lived with my mom and brother at my grandmother’s house. Both my mom and brother were using as well and during that time my mom told me it was okay to use meth. This is when my addiction really took hold.
At the age of seventeen I stopped using meth and began to make different choices. I was awarded the “Turn Around Student” award at Kalapuya High School in west Eugene. I was an employee of the month and thrived working with elderly clients for 5 years at Alpine Court. I felt like I made a difference in the lives of those around me. After 5 ½ years of being clean and sober living, I went to a party where alcohol and meth were being offered. I didn’t know that I couldn’t handle it and I fell under the same trap again.
