Treatment on Your TermsWe Meet You Where You Are

General Outpatient programs are the least structured forms of treatment we offer. They’re unique in that they work for patients at both ends of the recovery journey. You may begin with a General Outpatient program and step up through our levels of care if you and your clinical team determine you need more intensive treatment after you begin. On the other hand, a General Outpatient program may be your last step down before the clinical phase of your recovery journey officially ends. Whichever direction you come from, you receive the same quality of compassionate, innovative, evidence-based treatment associated with all levels of care at Pinnacle Treatment Centers.

Personalized Recovery Plan
Mind, Body, and Soul

Our skilled team develops a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific requirements. We delve into who you are and what makes you tick, formulating a therapeutic approach that maximizes your chances for achieving lasting and effective healing and recovery. As you move forward, your treatment evolves accordingly; we track your progress and modify the program to accommodate your learning and personal growth. We foster your strengths, guide you in rediscovering your authentic self, and guide you toward a genuine restoration in an environment characterized by empathy and expertise.

Stepping Down?

If you’re stepping down to a General Outpatient Program from a more intensive program at Pinnacle, we adapt your treatment plan to match your progress. We know what works for you, we know your unique challenges, and you already have experience applying your new knowledge and skills back at home or in one of our transitional living environments.

Transferring fromAnother Treatment Center?

If you come to Pinnacle from another treatment provider, we learn from them – and from you upon intake – what’s been working for you and what hasn’t. We take time to learn about you and establish your long-term goals with Pinnacle. Then we create a plan that meets your needs, based on all the information we collect during your transition.

New to Pinnacle?

If you’re new to Pinnacle Treatment, we start at the beginning, with a full physical and biopsychosocial evaluation. We offer you a range of therapeutic options, find out what works for you, what doesn’t, and modify your plan accordingly. Our goal is to create a plan that matches your strengths, bolsters your challenge areas, and gives you the best possible chance at sustained, lifelong well-being.

Your RecoveryIs Our Primary Goal

At the General Outpatient level of care, your customized treatment plan includes individual therapy and counseling, 12-step community supports, life skills development, addiction education, and mental health treatment as needed. At the same time, you participate fully in your life, work, school, and family routines. Your recovery plan – just as at our more intense levels of care – will include an individually tailored combination of some, but not all, of the following modes of treatment:

  • Individual therapy
  • Addiction Education
  • Complementary supports:
    • Exercise
    • Meditation
    • Expressive therapies such as music, art, and journaling
  • Community supports
    • AA
    • NA
    • Refuge Recovery
    • SMART Recovery

The Freedom to Be You

While our Residential/Inpatient, Partial Hospitalization, and Intensive Outpatient programs require a significant time commitment that might not work form some patients, our General Outpatient program allows you to begin treatment while keeping the core elements of your life in place – minus the substance use, of course. This hands-off approach allows you to practice your sobriety skills while you’re in treatment. It’s an opportunity to apply the therapeutic and recovery techniques you learn as you learn them – and you get to check in with your therapist or counselor once or twice a week to debrief, revise, and improve your plan based on your real-life experiences.
