Stages of Recovery is an outpatient dual-diagnosis drug and alcohol rehab, which means we treat both addiction and any co-occurring mental health conditions. It’s estimated 50% of people with a substance use disorder have another underlying condition, such as trauma, depression, or anxiety. This is why we believe it is so imperative to treat the underlying causes of addiction to produce the best outcomes.

Our comprehensive treatment model combines psychiatric, behavioral, and holistic therapies to not only uncover other mental health conditions but also help our clients develop valuable life skills. 

We recommend a long-term phased approach to addiction treatment that slowly integrates clients back into their normal lives while offering extensive support along the way. 

Early recovery is a sensitive period, which is why long-term treatment often has the highest success rates. Many find that a traditional 28-day rehab is not enough. At Stages of Recovery, we act as the much-needed aftercare that will support you or a loved one after detox or inpatient rehabilitation. 

Learn more about our program below.

Our Outpatient Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Oklahoma City

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) allows clients to practice the principles of recovery in a setting that combines community and accountability while maintaining a home and work life.

IOP is a less restrictive level of care than inpatient residential treatment, and it helps clients recover while reintegrating into their community. Our Oklahoma City IOP program lasts 10 weeks and consists of group therapy sessions held in three-hour blocks, 3 days per week. It’s highly recommended that clients in IOP live in a sober living home while attending IOP. Sober living homes provide accountability and support during early recovery, which most of our clients find extremely beneficial.

In IOP, clients receive both holistic and evidence-based psychotherapy, such as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectal behavior therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing, trauma-specific therapy, group therapy, and more. We also collaborate with local providers to ensure clients’ psychiatric needs are cared for

Additionally, clients will receive 12-step integration and learn new life skills that will enable personal development. Clients also submit to random drug screenings to ensure the accountability and safety of our population.

IOP is typically designed as an aftercare program, meaning most clients either first complete medical detox and/or an inpatient rehab prior to starting the program at Stages of Recovery. IOP helps clients rebuild their lives while they practice the skills learned in inpatient rehab. The supportive treatment environment of intensive outpatient allows clients to process the common triggers of early recovery.

Detox or 28-day inpatient rehab is often not enough for most individuals. According to the NIH, success rates are highest for individuals who remain in addiction treatment longer than 3 months. The intensive outpatient program at Stages of Recovery offers the continued treatment and support that most individuals need to remain clean & sober.

Continued Care: Outpatient Addiction Counseling in Oklahoma City

Receive long-term support for your recovery journey. Our Outpatient Program (OP) is a step down from IOP and provides addiction treatment sessions to clients who are reintegrating into their lives.

OP addiction counseling sessions are typically 1-hour on an individualized cadence. During IOP, you or your loved one will develop an aftercare plan that is appropriate for your unique situation and treatment progress.

Because the first year of sobriety is considered the most critical, many clients choose to continue addiction counseling for their first year of recovery.

 

Is Outpatient Rehab Right For Me?

At Stages of Recovery, we treat individuals suffering from addiction to a variety of substances, including alcohol, opiates, benzodiazepines, methamphetamine, and other substances. If you find yourself unable to moderate your substance use or unable to stop on your own, addiction treatment is probably right for you. Some questions to ask yourself might be:

  • Is your substance use affecting your home life?
  • Is substance use affecting your job?
  • Is substance use affecting school performance?
  • Is substance use affecting your health?
  • Are you experiencing legal consequences as a result of substance abuse?
  • Do you find when you drink or use, you often “overshoot the mark”?
  • Have you made promises to stop drinking or using and find yourself unable to?
  • Do you experience physical symptoms when you limit drinking or drug use?

If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, it may be time to seek an assessment with an addiction specialist. Our compassionate specialists are standing by to offer toll-free, no-obligation assessments: (806) 412-4721

Even if addiction treatment is right for you, outpatient treatment may not be most suitable as your first line of treatment. If you are physically dependent on substances, meaning you experience withdrawal symptoms, you will first need to complete detoxification.

At Stages of Recovery, clients must be free from drugs and alcohol starting at their first session, which means many clients first complete inpatient treatment to treat their physical dependency. Our program is designed to treat the psychological and behavioral components of addiction – not the physical.

Though we do not provide detox, we partner with several medical detox providers in the Oklahoma City and Central Oklahoma area. If you aren’t sure if you first need detox, give us a call today for an assessment: (806) 412-4721

Finding Detox Centers in Oklahoma City

A detox center is a specialized medical facility designed to manage drug and alcohol withdrawal. Because many substance cause painful and even dangerous withdrawal symptoms, medical detox is often required to safely remove drugs or alcohol from someone’s body. 

In a detox center, withdrawal is far more comfortable than quitting “cold turkey” because the body is slowly weaned off of substances with the help of medications, known as a taper. A taper reduces both unpleasant psychological symptoms as well as riskier physical symptoms, like tremors, seizures, and even heart attack or stroke.

Not all substance addictions require a medical detox, but generally, you should never attempt to quit cold turkey and should always first seek advice from a medical professional. Some substances that almost always require detox include:

  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazapines, or “Benzos”, such as Xanax, Valium, Ativan, or Klonopin
  • Heroin & fentanyl
  • Prescription opioids, such as OxyContin, Percocet, or Vicodin
  • Prescription sleep medications, such as Ambien
  • Muscle relaxers

Fortunately, most insurance plans cover detox when it is medically appropriate, though you may have a deductible or other out-of-pocket costs depending on your plan.

If you aren’t sure if medical detox is right for you, or if you need help finding a medical detox center in Oklahoma City that is in-network with your insurance, contact us today at (806) 412-4721

Inpatient Rehabs in Oklahoma City

Some of our clients first complete an inpatient or partial hospitalization program (PHP) prior to coming to our program. Both inpatient and PHP are around 15-30 days and offer a highly structured level of treatment.

In a residential or PHP rehab, clients are not able to work or go to school, and instead attend treatment sessions for the majority of the day. Whether inpatient treatment is appropriate will depend on your substance use history, type of substance use, treatment history, mental health, and other factors.

Though we do not provide this level of care in Oklahoma City, we do provide partial hospitalization treatment at our Texas location. We also partner with many inpatient programs here in Oklahoma and would be happy to provide a referral.

Anthony McClain

Chief Client Relations Officer, Transitional Living Operations 

A Pennsylvania native, Anthony left home when he was 21 during an active addiction – he thought he had it all figured out. Anthony moved from Wyoming to Montana to Colorado. His addiction progressed, causing him to neglect priorities like relationships, rent, and job opportunities. Eventually, Anthony found himself homeless and broken spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Anthony researched a treatment center in the Dallas area that was able to fly him down to Texas. He was a client there for 57 days. While at treatment, Anthony heard of The Door Sober Living and the recovery that Lubbock had to offer. Anthony took a greyhound to Lubbock and in 2012, Anthony stayed at The Door for six months before moving out. Without The Door’s accountability and structure, he fell back into addictive behavior for several months. Anthony checked into the Ranch at Dove Tree, where he stayed for 30 days. Upon successful completion, Anthony returned to The Door Sober Living on May 19, 2013. This time, Anthony signed a one-year agreement and expressed great willingness to maintain sobriety. In July 2014, when a previous house manager moved in with his fiancé, Anthony was asked to step up and take on his duties. This then, Anthony has grown into the Client Relations House Manager. His continued dedication to recovery and belief in the Stages of Recovery program as a whole led to an opportunity in 2017 to become the fourth owner of Stages.
