Partial Hospitalization (PHP)
PHP is for medically stable individuals who live in a supportive environment and have daily transportation for on-campus programming. Partial hospitalization is comparable to rehab, but allows the patient to return home nightly. Involvement in 12-step recovery groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA) or Cocaine Anonymous (CA) is emphasized.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
IOP offers group therapy several days and evenings per week. Education is offered to individuals and their families through special weekly family programming. Individuals are expected to participate in a 12-step recovery program. Special groups are available for chronic relapse patients. Outpatient programming is also provided in Hendricks County.

Level 1 Outpatient Group Therapy
Level 1 Outpatient Therapy Groups are designed to meet one hour weekly for 12 weeks. Frequency and duration may be adjusted to meet each client’s needs. The group’s focus is substance abuse treatment and associated issues that cause moderate impairment in the individual’s life. Treatment goals will address lifestyle, attitudinal and behavioral issues that are interfering with functioning or recovery. Care management and groups will be led by a master’s-prepared clinician who is credentialed through our contracted payers. This program is based on the Patient Placement Criteria for the treatment of substance disorders by the American Society of Addiction Medicine.

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
To assist clients in their recovery journey, Fairbanks offers medication assisted treatment. Patients who require ongoing medications such as naltrexone (Vivitrol) or Buprenorphine (Suboxone) can be assessed for a prescription through the Fairbanks Medical Office.

Fairbanks follows best practices for addiction medicine. Research shows that medication is most effective when combined with counseling. For this reason, patients must be enrolled in some form of addiction counseling, though it doesn’t have to be at Fairbanks, to use our MAT program. Medicare and most forms of commercial insurance are accepted. Appointments may be scheduled by calling the Fairbanks Access Center at 317–572-9396.

Origins: Women’s Trauma Program
This treatment curriculum addresses trauma in female patients that’s co-occurring with addiction disorders and is part of Fairbanks’ whole continuum of care. Evidence-based practices including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Seeking Safety and yoga are utilized. A men’s specialized trauma curriculum is under development.

Substance abuse education is designed for individuals at the experimental stage of drug and alcohol use. This group assists individuals in making the connection between life problems and their use of drugs and alcohol. Learn more about substance abuse education.
