Outpatient Treatment Phases

Gig Harbor Counseling – Olalla Recovery Centers

The following is a brief description of the treatment phases offered at Gig Harbor Counseling:


Phase I: The Beginning

Intensive Outpatient Program - Intensive treatment focus to help patients begin their life of recovery from addictions, including alcohol and drug education classes, group sessions and individual counseling sessions. With peer support, patients in this phase complete a series of assignments and group processes addressing their addiction and relapse warning signs.

Structured Outpatient – A combination of intensive treatment coupled with aftercare/relapse focus groups. This phase is designed for patients who need more structure and focus to strengthen their recovery. This is achieved through intentional assignments and peer support.

Phase II: Stabilization and Relapse Identification

Relapse Prevention – This program is for those individuals who relapse while involved in a treatment process and/or for patients needing additional skills to identify relapse warning signs. It includes education, group therapy, and individual counseling. Patients also complete a comprehensive workbook dealing with Relapse Prevention and work with peers to develop a lifelong relapse prevention plan. Relapse Prevention is part of our aftercare planning for patients completing the Intensive Outpatient Program.

Group Counseling – Focus of groups are in-depth discussion and personal interpretation of recovery principals. Includes some lectures focused on relapse prevention and assignments directly related to recovery and peer support/feedback.
