Outpatient Addiction Treatment Services in Las Vegas
Desert Hope Outpatient Center’s regular outpatient program provides an option that is more flexible and less intensive than the partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs.
Our clients play an important role in decisions about their treatment and collaborate with their treatment provider(s) to determine treatment objectives that are realistic. Since each individual entering our doors has their own experiences and needs, the client’s treatment provider(s) take into consideration many factors when developing his/her treatment plan.

Our aftercare recovery group sessions often include special topics, designed to address issues commonly encountered both in and after treatment. Our current special topics groups include:
Grief & Loss Support
In this group, anyone whose life has been impacted by loss or grief can connect with peers who share similar experiences. In addition to receiving support from others, supporting your peers in similar situation can be a healthy and productive way to relieve the isolation that comes with the grief process. This support gathering is unlike other addiction recovery groups, and is facilitated by an experienced therapist who provides a safe and caring environment where you can process and cope with feelings specifically related to grief and loss.
This group is designed to provide additional resources and peer support for any client dealing with gender identification and/or sexual orientation issues. The LGBT group welcomes you, your family members, and relationship partners in the gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender community.
In addition to clinical outpatient treatment, we work hard to promote the importance of wellness, eating a nutritional diet, and building physical activity into your new sober lifestyle. Staff members from the Desert Hope Residential facility will speak on a wide range of interest areas, including skills for healthy living, HIV-related concerns, and substance abuse–related medical risks.
Additional Outpatient Services
Medical & Psychiatric Sessions
At some point during your IOP or OP program, though you meet outpatient treatment admission criteria, you may also benefit from additional services such as medication and medication management, or psychiatric care. If this is the case, we will integrate appointment times into your day program as advised by your multidisciplinary treatment team. Should you have a medical condition upon admission into Desert Hope Outpatient Center, we will communicate with your treating physician to coordinate care or additional medical observation if clinically indicated.
Psychoeducational & Didactic Groups
In addition to group therapy focused on flexible peer discussions, you will also attend psychoeducational and didactic groups as a part of your IOP or OP treatment. These groups address common issues encountered by people in recovery, delivered in a “classroom” setting designed to teach post-treatment coping skills and prepare you with recovery strategies to use following your addiction treatment program. In these special group settings, you will learn techniques and options to control how you respond in future high-risk situations that might threaten your sobriety
Many people in substance addiction treatment programs at all levels of care participate in 12-step based programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. For our Desert Hope Outpatient Center clients, we encourage attendance and participation in 12-step groups to complement our curriculum while you’re in treatment, as well as following treatment, which has been shown to increase lengths of abstinence.
