Adolescent IOP

The Live Free Recovery Consultants Adolescent Intensive Outpatients (IOP) substance abuse program is a comprehensive approach to treating adolescents with a substance use disorder. We are the only adolescent program in New Hampshire that combines traditional clinical components of an IOP with same age Peer Recovery Supports directly into the group setting.

Members will receive the education and skills necessary to manage and understand their disease. They will understand how to develop and maintain goals toward a healthy and balanced lifestyle, including academic and occupational goals, and how this can reduce the chance of relapse. Members will be taught the importance of, and how to develop, a healthy social support system and how to recognize supports that may hinder recovery. Our hope is that members will ultimately view recovery as an opportunity to achieve a meaningful, productive, enjoyable life.

IOP consists of four weekly meetings, three hours in length, for a period of four weeks and serves adolescents between the ages of 13 and 17. Persons age 18 who are still in High School will be reviewed on a case by case basis for appropriateness for the existing group. Groups will be conducted by master level licensed alcohol and drug counselors. Same age Peer Leaders in recovery are present at all groups.

Following the initial four weeks all participants will have the opportunity to continue with the group as part of our mentoring program at no cost. As a leader in training you will participate in groups, continue to progress toward life goals, and receive training towards becoming a Peer Leader. 

After three to six months those who have succcesfully participated in the mentoring program will be offered paid positions as Peer Leaders. Peer leaders assist the Clinical staff with IOP groups, serve as role models for IOP participants,participate in community forums and events, and if they chose will have all trainings needed for recovery support worker certification provided for by Live Free Recovery Consultants.
