Gain the skills your family and loved one needs to heal

Our FIOP program begins with a five day family immersion experience which takes place Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM. Two to four families may participate at once and participation is open to local families as well as to those coming from out of the area seeking the best support for their loved one’s recovery. Following the five day immersion, families will return to work and school and continue on the path to recovery through outpatient therapy that fits their family’s schedule.

Frequently Asked Questions

Each patient and family participates in an intensive week of treatment which runs Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM.

Patients and families should anticipate missing a week of school or work during the week of intensive treatment. After that, all services are scheduled around patients’ and families’ work and school schedules as much as possible.

Many insurance plans will pay for most of the cost of the program. Prior to beginning, benefits will be verified and families will receive an estimate of the cost.

The first step in the program is scheduling an assessment. During the assessment, the patient and family will meet with a clinician for two hours. Once the assessment is complete, a treatment plan will be recommended to the family and the initial five days of intensive treatment will be scheduled.

Sacramento hosts an international airport which makes travel to our area much easier. Our community outreach coordinators will answer questions about nearby accommodations options and are happy to assist families with securing lodging near the clinic.
