About the Facility
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

ABOUT CHANGING ECHOES
For more than a quarter-century, Changing Echoes has been providing social detox and residential rehabilitation services to men and women struggling with chemical dependency. The facility is located on 20 acres in the Sierra Nevada foothills of Northern California. Holistic treatment is based on a 12-step model, physical fitness, and peer support in both short-term and long-term residential programs.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The social model approach at Changing Echoes emphasizes the importance of each client’s participation in individual and group processes. The rehab center hosts Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings on-site, offers nutritional counseling and recreational activities, and encourages family members and friends of clients to be involved in their recovery.
In addition to counseling sessions, education classes, and 12-step immersion, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and referrals to off-site medical detox are provided as needed to minimize the discomfort of withdrawal.
After completion of any full treatment plan at Changing Echoes, alumni and their family members are invited to attend weekly aftercare meetings, which are held in various Northern and Central California locations. The aftercare program also includes access to treatment staff who track the progress of alumni in recovery.
The treatment staff includes certified addiction counselors, relapse specialists, and stress reduction counselors.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Surrounded by mountain views and hiking trails near the small Gold Rush town of Angels Camp, the facility offers a quiet, natural setting for rehabilitation. Clients have access to an array of physical activity resources, including horseshoes stakes, a swimming pool, basketball court, and fitness room. An annual alumni picnic is held for former clients and their families.
