The Medically Supervised Outpatient Program identifies each participant's needs, and is based on a holistic approach that follows a medical model to evaluate, assess and develop a treatment plan, agreed upon by the participant, primary counselor and Multidisciplinary professionals. As a clinical team, we focus on each participant's level of care, which includes many components: medical and mental health, educational and vocational status, and suitable housing.
