Intensive Treatment Services

The Intensive Treatment Services (ITS) program offers an array of options to meet the needs of program participants. ITS program staff strive to provide a supportive environment to empower participants in the recovery process by emphasizing choice, promoting self advocacy, and recognizing strengths.

Morning Program

The ITS program offers a morning program Monday through Friday including Partial Hospitalization, Skill Building groups, and Social Recreational Activities.   The ITS Morning Program is designed to meet the needs of individuals requiring a more intensive setting. Program participants arrive from the Portage Path Behavioral Health Crisis Stabilization Unit, Residential Treatment Facilities, or their own homes when the level of service is indicated.

Afternoon Program

The ITS Afternoon Program consists of several skill building groups for individuals with a focus on the development of effective coping skills and recovery. Group topics change quarterly to allow participants an opportunity to focus on a variety of skills.
