United Counseling Service (UCS) continues to provide outstanding substance abuse services for addicted individuals with the addition of a new Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in Bennington. There is an increased demand for higher-intensity treatment for many who are working through addiction and mental-health related issues. The program is designed to address multiple factors concurrently, to help participants maintain and achieve sobriety and improved everyday functioning. The treatment includes evidence-based protocols, including Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP), Collaborative Network Approach (CNA), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and several other healing modalities.
The program will begin on Tuesday, November 10 and includes three hours of group therapy, three days a week for a period of six weeks. To learn more or register please contact United Counseling Service at 802.442.5491.
