Community Health Center Philosophy
Community Health Center is committed to enhancing the quality of life. We are a leader in providing effective services for compulsive and addictive disorders, health care, life skills development, prevention, housing, wellness and rehabilitation. We believe chemical dependency is a progressive, fatal illness that is highly treatable.
Areas of Specialization
Intensive Outpatient Program (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.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
