About APT Foundation Inc Access and Treatment Services

Group therapy is the primary form of treatment. Individual therapy is viewed as adjunctive to the group driven format and is available based on each individual’s needs. Group programming schedules are developed weekly to address the changing needs of our clients.

Psychiatric services are available on-site for individuals who will benefit from them. We recognize that individuals have different needs and varying degrees of commitment to treatment services. As such, our programs offer a unique open access program that provides flexibility to meet individual treatment needs.

I.O.P treatment is recommended for many individuals entering services to assist them to stabilize in treatment. Clients that have been engaged in services who have struggled with relapse or an increase in symptoms may also be recommended for intensive services. This level of service involves attending treatment for a minimum of nine hours per week. This is broken up into attending the program 3 days/week and participating in three clinical contacts per day (group, individual counseling session, psychiatric consult). Attending this level of service is based on treatment needs and is generally only indicated for several weeks. Individuals will work closely with their treatment team to determine how long they will participate at this level of service. Once completing the intensive level of service it is recommended that individuals continue treatment at the outpatient level of service for ongoing support.

Individuals who want to stop their illicit drug use can find it very difficult. Their need to satisfy cravings or avoid withdrawal can be so intense that they feel desperate and overwhelmed. At the right dose, and with psychosocial intervention (e.g., counseling) medication assisted treatment can suppress opioid withdrawal symptoms and suppress cravings to help individuals continue treatment and avoid illicit opioid use.

APT currently offers two forms of medication assisted treatment for opioid dependence
1) methadone and 2) buprenorphine (Suboxone®). For people with severe opioid dependence, these medications may be prescribed for a period of years to help stabilize and support the person making changes in other life areas.
