Our outpatient model allows young adults to remain at home and continue education, work and other activities while in treatment. Participants attend the program four days a week, for three hours each day after school. Our individualized discharge planning helps connect participants to appropriate support services after the program.
Depending on the treatment plan, participants may designate a family member or friend as a support person to participate in some sessions. We provide education and support as part of these sessions.
All of our services are managed and delivered by certified substance abuse counselors, licensed clinical staff or licensed-eligible staff.
Besides group work, participants also benefit from The Barry Robinson Center’s recreation and art therapy resources.
Yoga/Mindfulness – Our registered yoga instructor specializes in working with special needs populations. The practice of yoga can be beneficial for people with mental illness and substance use, to help them control how they react to negative experiences and emotions.
Art – Participants can process their experiences through creative self-expression and gain insight into their experiences and emotions.
Equine – Participants may take part in occasional outings to an equine-facilitated learning program in Virginia Beach where they meet and help care for rescued horses.
Guest Speakers – Expert speakers from community organizations may join group sessions to talk about their perspectives and experience with substance use.
– Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 5 – 8 p.m.
