The Haven Outpatient Centers offers a variety of evidence-based treatment services specifically geared to the clinical needs of young adult college students with sutbstance use issues and co-occurring disorders. Our levels of care are delivered by licensed clinicians with deep experience working in addiction treatment.
  • Day Treatment/PHP: Full-time
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): Part-time
  • Outpatient Program: Individualized Offerings​
  • Continuing Care: Ongoing check-ins to maintain wellness
  • Mentoring & Monitoring Program: Clinical/social program of engagement and accountability
  • Tailored Approach Based on Individual's Needs: As a "boutique" outpatient center specializing in treating young adults in college or on a college track, we provide each client with a holistic and tailored solution that utilizes a diverse team of licensed clinicians*, ​educational counselors, mindfulness gurus, academic and wellness case managers, peer mentors, yoga and fitness instructors, and university liaisons. Treatment begins with a detailed psycho-social-educational assessment to understand an individual's exact needs, followed by the creation of a tailored treatment plan.
    *Psychiatric services are available onsite upon request but are not part of the PHP or IOP programs.
  • One-to-one counseling and psychotherapy: Each young adult is paired with a primary therapist who will meet with them once or twice per week and will remain with them for consistency and support throughout their time at The Haven. Therapists are trained in multiple modalities and employ what is appropriate for their client's needs, including MCBT, motivational interviewing, attachment therapy, somatic work exercises, to name a few.
  • Group therapy: Group therapy is still the leading evidence-based treatment modality for treating substance use issues in young adults. Haven therapy groups are facilitated by trained staff and offer the opportunity for mirroring, goal-setting, and peer feedback. This process creates strong bonds among similarly situated recovery allies who no longer feel alone in their feelings and experiences.
  • Individual Counseling: Each student is assigned a primary therapist whom they will see once a week (or more) in a private 50-minute session. Sessions explore CBT skill-building, healthy coping strategies and craving management.
  • Academic Case Management Services: An academic case manager will explore with a client her/his academic goals and together they will derive a workable roadmap toward attainment with a timeline, checkpoints, goal review, and built-in accountability measures.
  • Clinical Case Management Services: Weekly meeting with a trained case manager to review treatment progress and address any additional needs of the client as (s)he progresses through treatment, e.g., medication issues, fitness goals, doctor appointments, class attendance, etc.
  • Peer Mentor/Concierge: Each new client is assigned a peer concierge, who will provide support and assistance throughout The Haven treatment experience. Peer concierges are graduate students or alumni of The Haven who are successfully navigating campus life without the use of substances, and who are available to introduce a new client to others in recovery, encourage meeting attendance, or escort a client to take care of an administrative task on campus.
  • Specialty Groups: The Haven offers several specialty groups to address unique needs, including Recovery Management, LGBTQ Group, Gender-Based Groups, stigma-free groups for co-occurring disorders, including Medication groups.
  • Enhancement Experiences: The Haven hosts enlightening group experiences some of them are clinical, and some just plain fun. Examples include: group service work, therapeutic hikes, art expression, tailgate parties, cooking lessons, VIP museum tours, camping trips, etc.
