Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient care, including Level One, allows you to incorporate treatment into your life while still attending school, maintaining employment or staying connected to family. Fairbanks Online IOP is a one-to-one session with a Fairbanks therapist and include individual sessions each week plus the client will complete learning modules at his or her own pace.

Outpatient Addiction Medicine
Fairbanks offers a complete outpatient treatment programs including MAT (Medication-Assisted Treatment) services for patients who require ongoing medication. You or your loved one will receive support and prescription guidance from our staff of doctors and nurses. Because research shows that medication is most effective when combined with counseling, we require involvement in programming if receiving medication through our physicians.

Fairbanks medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program uses the following medication:

  • Suboxone, which contains buprenorphine and naloxone, to help patients achieve recovery from opioid addiction.
  • Vivitrol, a non-addictive once-a-month injection of naltrexone, for treatment of opioid addiction in patients who have not used opioids for 7 to 14 days.
  • Sublocade, an injection of buprenorphine that is indicated for the treatment of opioid addiction and that is released in the body in a controlled manner over a one-month period.

Level One
Level One Outpatient Therapy Groups meet one hour weekly for 12 weeks. Frequency and duration may be adjusted to meet you or your loved one’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.

Level One treatment programs are available for adults and adolescents.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Requiring group therapy several days or evenings per week, the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provides flexibility and structure to patients. Education is offered to individuals and their families through special weekly family programming. Individuals are expected to participate in a 12-step recovery group, and special groups are available for chronic relapse patients.

Partial Hospitalization (PHP)
For medically stable individuals who live in a supportive environment and have access to reliable transportation, the Partial Hospitalization Program is comparable to inpatient care, but allows a patient to return home nightly. The individual goes through intense rehabilitation treatment during the day, and involvement in a 12-step recovery group is emphasized.
