Q&A on Co-Occurring Services

with Katelynd Frierson, Co-Occurring Program Supervisor

September 8, 2021

Get more insight on our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Outpatient Program (OP)!

 

1. What does a typical day in IOP/OP look like for a member at Park Center?

IOP and OP offer group and individual counseling between 9:00 am - 12:00 pm, with IOP meeting Monday - Friday and OP meeting two days a week. A typical day would include time for the group to check in with one another and engage as a community, followed by a presentation on a topic relating to co-occurring recovery by the group facilitator. Afterward, there is time for discussion and processing. Members also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with their counselor for to work on personal goals for their recovery.

2. What would you like to say to a person who is seeking outpatient treatment at Park Center? 

I would say that we are proud of you for taking this often difficult and scary step! Park Center is a safe and inclusive space for individuals interested in learning more about coping and recovering from co-occurring disorders. We understand that recovery is a process, recovery looks different for everyone, and healing happens in community. You don't have to have anything "figured out" to start this program, just a desire to heal.

3. Is there anything else you'd like to share with the community?

I would like to share that we welcome individuals that are currently in Medically Assisted Therapy (MAT) programs and support individuals utilizing this recovery aid. Also, I am happy to meet with community partners and providers to discuss how we can best support their referrals and to connect with resources in the area.
