Slogan: "A Catalyst for Change"
Our Philosophy at Cypress West Intensive Outpatient is that everyone can overcome addiction and substance use problems when provided with correct knowledge and skills coupled with experience, and an opportunity to both internalize and integrate those elements into their way of living.
At the heart of Cypress West is a clinical model and process we believe provides the knowledge necessary to overcome addiction delivered in a manner that makes it accessible, and thus useful to our clients.
We at Cypress West believe that two things must happen in order for clients to internalize and integrate: First, our counselors must be effective in working through denial, resistance, and mistrust while processing and exploring clients' belief systems, traumas, and past experiences. Secondly, clients' sustained experience with this newly gained knowledge is necessary to fully internalize and integrate new learning, and to establish a level of trust and confidence in it.
The Intensive Outpatient model gives Cypress West clinicians adequate treatment time to both educate and process, and gives our clients space outside of treatment to undergo the life experiences necessary for them to fully realize the changes they need to make in order to overcome addiction and substance use problems.
