The goals of the AIOP are to interrupt the addiction/abuse cycle and to prevent the progression of addiction by incorporating abstinence, education, family and community support, as well as therapeutic intervention. Program Description G ro u p Re q u i re m e n t s The trained and licensed clinicians who facilitate the AIOP integrate key therapeutic models, including: • Cognitive behavioral therapy • Motivational interviewing • Community networking • Group, individual, and family therapy As an adolescent is admitted into the AIOP, the treatment requirements are clearly presented and adherence to these guidelines is expected. These requirements include: • Abstinence (monitored by regular, random urine screens) • Prompt attendance • Attendance of AA and/or NA meetings • Behavioral compliance in program, at home, in school, and with probation (if applicable) • Completion of assignments • Participation in group Admission Process To be enrolled in the program, an adolescent must receive a drug and alcohol evaluation by a trained clinician at Mazzitti and Sullivan. This evaluation will include: • Psychosocial interview • Collateral interview of family and other involved contacts • American Society of Addictive Medicine placement criteria for adolescents • Staffing with treatment team in consideration of level of care • Consideration of treatment history • Urine drug screening To schedule an assessment, call (717) 831-0070. Program Progression The AIOP is based upon a level system. A member advances based on compliance with his or her treatment plan and completion and presentation of assignments. Once a member has completed all program goals, he or she graduates from the AIOP, and Mazzitti and Sullivan Counseling Services, Inc. follows up with a family session. At this time, an Aftercare Plan is designed, which may include ongoing group and/or individual treatment at a lower level of care. The length of stay in the program varies, as each case is unique, and each member’s struggle with sobriety is different. If a member is unable to complete treatment at the AIOP level of care, whether due to multiple positive drug screens or due to some other issue, inpatient recommendations may be made. Mazzitti and Sullivan will work with the patient, family, and insurance provider to facilitate this referral. In most cases, our staff will remain involved in the individual’s treatment Com m u n i t y Ru l e s Rules within the group are critical for structure and success within the program. Some rules are: 1. To prove attendance of mandated AA and/or NA meetings, a member must bring a signed meeting slip on Monday. [Pizza is offered as a reward.] 2. Contraband items include cell phones, cigarettes, lighters, and any items considered as a distraction by staff. These items will be collected before each group and stored in a secure location. 3. A member must come to every group prepared to submit to a urine drug screen. Failure to provide a specimen will result in the screen being considered positive. 4. Group members are not permitted to wear clothing or jewelry that is related to drugs or alcohol or is physically revealing. 5. Confidentiality is expected. What is said in group stays in group. We accept most private health insurance, Medical Assistance, and funding from Dauphin County Department of Drug and Alcohol Services.
