WAY OUT Recovery

getting started

Affordable Outpatient Drug & Alcohol Dependency Treatment for the LGBT and HIV+ Communities

Have you been struggling with addiction but felt you couldn’t really open up around others outside of the community? One of the reasons we have been  so successful in our 30+ years of providing outpatient substance abuse (alcohol and/or drugs) treatment is that our state-licensed professional therapists not only specialize in this area, but they also understand how addiction can be complicated with other mental health issues.

If what you’re dealing with is layered with other factors like being LGBT or living with HIV/AIDS, you may not feel comfortable or safe talking in front of others. We will help you through an initial 8-week Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and then Relapse Prevention. We will make sure you find other support systems to enhance and sustain your recovery as you step out into the world, no longer chemically dependent. Services include:

8-week Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

  • Group treatment (Monday-Thursday evenings)
  • Individual and family psychotherapy

12-week Supportive Outpatient Program (SOP)

  • Continuing psychotherapy
  • Relapse Prevention Group
  • Aftercare support services

What if I am not ready to quit?

You may benefit from coaching. Our trained recovery coaches work one-on-one to help you create and achieve goals that can improve your life, including reducing or abstaining from substances at your own pace. Recovery coaching is personal, informal, and FREE!

Why choose the Montrose Center?

Recovery demands complete honesty about who you are and what triggers your addiction. Unfortunately, many persons who are LGBT or HIV+ do not feel safe disclosing their sexual orientation or status in other treatment settings due to homophobia, heterosexism and discrimination. Way Out offers a safe and affirming environment that allows participants to focus on achieving recovery instead of defending themselves or educating others about who they are. We believe that alcohol and drug addiction is a progressive chronic condition which if left untreated could result in death. While the program is not affiliated with any twelve-step program, it does embrace the belief that social support is necessary for continued long-term recovery. In keeping with this, participants are encouraged to utilize the twelve-step philosophy and other recovery-based methods.

How much does IOP & SOP cost?

We work with what you have. The Center accepts all insurance, including Medicare/Medicaid. Discounted fees are offered if you have no insurance and/or limited means. You may also qualify for grant subsidies to cover all or a portion of fees and co-payments based on your income. The bottom line is this:  Cost does not have to be a barrier to getting the care you need!  Talk to us before making that decision.
