Outpatient Treatment Services
Amethyst House has a variety of outpatient programs available to address substance abuse and problem gambling issues. Clients need to be clean and sober for a minimum two weeks before starting treatment and maintain abstinence while in the program. We are an abstinence based program. Clients are expected to become involved with Twelve Step recovery programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), and Gamblers Anonymous (GA). Our program also provides support and treatment for family members.
To determine the appropriate level of care an assessment is completed utilizing American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria. Once this level is determined an individualized treatment plan is then developed with the client to identify problems and establish objectives to achieve recovery goals. We are committed to keeping our groups and education programs small in order to better serve the individual client. Our groups typically consist of 10 - 12 participants.
Treatment utilizes evidenced based practices with an emphasis on Motivational Interviewing, Stages of Change Theory, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. We follow the intensive outpatient program guidelines recommended by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) and DMHA (Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addictions). Additionally, we have developed a menu of groups and services that can be combined -based on the needs of the clients- to equal whatever program requirements may be required by a participant. This style of program allows us to increase or decrease the amount of services based on individual progress and need, much like the multi-level programs used by probation and community corrections programs to provide both incentives and consequences for offenders. All treatment sessions are conducted at our outpatient office located at the corner of 11th and Walnut (645 N. Walnut), Bloomington, IN. Click here for directions.
Our fees are affordable and based on a sliding fee scale. Services are free of charge for clients addressing a problem gambling problem (per State grant guidelines). We are currently accepting Anthem and MDwise Medicaid and HIP plans, as well as Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cook Medical, Encore Health Network, SIHO Insurance Services, and Value Options.
We have several licensed clinical staff including, Licensed Clinical Addiction Counselor (LCAC), and Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).
