Outpatient Services

Intermountain embraces the Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (A-CRA) as a fundamental framework for the assessment, planning and provision of services to adolescents experiencing challenges with substance use. A-CRA is based on the belief that environmental contingencies – people, places and things – play a powerful role in encouraging or discouraging substance use. A-CRA utilizes social, recreational, familial and vocational reinforcements to assist adolescents in the recovery process. The goal is to rearrange multiple aspects of the adolescent’s life so that a healthy lifestyle is more rewarding than one dominated by alcohol and/or substance use.

  • Intermountain provides a 60-day residential program for adolescents in Tucson.
  • Services provided by clinicians include: recreational opportunities, therapy groups, health and wellness education, development of social skills, managing emotions, individual and family therapy sessions and community-based programs.
  • We believe that substance use is a learned behavior and the best way to minimize it is to teach alternative behaviors.
  • These “sobriety sampling” opportunities help to share perspectives on what a preferred activity is and illuminate a contrast between a sober lifestyle and a using lifestyle.
  • These new perspectives reveal activities and social relationships that members can use to diminish their substance use and its related behaviors.
  • Community-based activities are arranged to maximize therapeutic outcomes once the members are transitioned into an aftercare setting.
