Positive Impact Health Centers offers multiple treatment options to allow individualized care for all phases of those wanting to recover for addiction. The goal is for every person who walks in to be treated with respect and be helped toward personalized goals of recovery. This especially true of our desire to help persons effected by HIV individuals who suffer from addictions to obtain the tools needed to have productive lives in recovery.
It is our vision to bring about healthy change in the lives of those we work with “by facilitating physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing”. We do that through the following treatment options.
IMPACT Program (Internal Motivation Produces Actions Causing Transformation)
IMPACT is an Intensive Outpatient Program consisting of 3 phases over 9 months. This approach allows patients to gain knowledge and skills and begin to put them to use immediately while gradually decreasing recovery structure. Those persons with a minimum of 90 days clean or recently leaving a structured treatment program can continue recovery by enrolling directly into our Continuing Care Program that meet twice a week.
- Phase I: Monday through Wednesday: 1:00pm – 5:00pm and Friday: 1:00pm – 4:00pm
- Phase II: Individualized hours
- Phase III: Monday and Wednesdays: 5:30pm – 7:00pm
