Intensive Outpatient Program
Sante’s Intensive Outpatient Program addresses the same issues as those outlined in the Residential Program overview. Program length, similarly, is based on goals achieved; some complete IOP in 24 weeks while others may take a little longer. Phases (based on goals achieved) structure the content and attendance frequency from three nights per week to one night per week. Some of our more unique IOP characteristics are:
- Phases One consists of 10 hours of group per week, usually split into three night sessions
- Phases Two consists of 7 hours of group per week, usually achieved in two nights per week
- Phases Three consists of 3 hours of group per week, and all completed in one night per week
- Individual therapy is spread throughout all phases
- Program completion dates and phases are individualized
- Clients can come from another treatment center or be assessed initially for needing this level of care
For 20 years Santé Center for Healing’s medical and clinical staff has worked individually with patients, clients, and families to identify and address core, trauma-level issues (often complicated by a dual diagnosis).
Santé’s Therapy Intensive: Recovering from Trauma
This highly concentrated 4-day Therapy Intensive identifies and addresses each attendee’s stuck points preventing the necessary footing to move past trauma-related symptoms and conditions. This intensive therapy experience helps attendees face trauma (sexual, physical, emotional) in a safe, serene, supportive environment primarily using an innovative approach from Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). Santé’s Therapy Intensives also integrate DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and experiential therapy like Equine Therapy and Art Therapy.
Santé’s Therapy Intensive: Recovering from Codependency
This 4-day Intensive to identifies and addresses each attendee’s stuck points preventing the necessary footing to move past symptoms and conditions that maintain their codependency. Codependence, often misunderstood to be someone who chooses to assist individuals in their addictive behaviors. More accurately, codependence is a manner of learning the skills to survive in a chaotic environment. Spending a significant amount of time using these survival skills can take over healthier ways of living; hence, day-to-day ways of thinking lead to continual stress and anxiety and significantly interfere with our most important relationships. Santé s Therapy Intensive: Recovering from Codependency, developed by our Licensed Staff Psychologist, and facilitated by a multidisciplinary team to bring rapid healing and change to those with unresolved codependent behavior that prevents them from fully living.
Addiction impacts both the addict and the addict’s loved ones. It tears apart families and destroys lives, striking at the core of relationships and human intimacy. Santé understands that the recovery process requires healing of individuals, couples and families, through versatile addiction therapy.

Our main goal is for our patients to live a life in recovery. They learn to be aware of their issues and gain the skills to resolve them. They will discover how to prevent relapses, identify slipping signs and live without the feelings of shame or guilt that often accompany their diagnosis.
Recovery is not something that is completed upon leaving treatment; it is an on-going process of learning and personal growth. It is important to stay connected and know that Santé wants you to succeed through your personal journey that is Recovery.
