Drug and Alcohol Counseling
Chemical Dependency Intensive Outpatient Program. Today, alcohol and drug dependencies are recognized as life-threatening diseases. The Psychiatric Services staff at Memorial Hospital of Martinsville and Henry County regard them as treatable medical illnesses. The Chemical Dependency Intensive Outpatient Program at Memorial Hospital, sometimes referred to as CDIOP, is designed for adults having problems with alcohol and/or substance abuse or dependencies.
Our treatment program is convenient, individualized, and is based on the 12-step model- one of the most proven successful treatment models for recovery. The program allows participants to continue working and to return home daily to practice new skills and establish a pattern for living a sobriety-based and productive life. The program may also benefit the individual making a transition from inpatient care back into the community.
