The Right Step Clear Lake Outpatient Program Philosophy
The Right Step has been treating patients with chemical dependency issues for more than 20 years. The Clear Lake, Texas facility offers outpatient drug and alcohol treatment services for adults. The program is designed for individuals who are working or in school and cannot commit to inpatient residential care, but still need a treatment program to maintain a sober lifestyle or those transitioning out of a residential program. Evidence-based therapies, addiction education, and 12-step principles are utilized to help clients recognize problematic behavior patterns and develop healthy and sustainable coping skills.
Areas of Specialization
Clients explore the areas in their lives that have contributed to substance abuse. A supportive group setting encourages clients to share about challenges they’re encountering in their professional and personal lives. They identify triggers and learn healthier ways to cope with them.
Clients are invited to take advantage of two years of no-cost aftercare services featuring treatment offerings such as weekly group counseling sessions and referrals. Clients are encouraged to collaborate and share with their peers in order to learn from others’ experiences and reinforce recovery strategies.

Length of treatment depends on individual needs. Individual and family sessions are available by appointment.
Graduates of IOP can participate in a free, two-year aftercare group. The program includes alumni activities and weekly meetings.
And finally, 12-month continuing care services — called JavelinTM Continuing Care — links each graduate with a coach who checks in regularly via phone, text, and email. The coach also gives positive reinforcement and provides ongoing education.
