Outpatient Treatment for Addiction and Mental Health Disorders: Why Choose Us?

Our intensive outpatient program in Ocala offers a compassionate, healing environment for people throughout Marion County. At the Vines, you’ll find:

  • No-cost assessments: We’re here 24/7 to provide evaluations and quick admissions for people facing mental health or substance use challenges. You can walk in or make an appointment to receive a free assessment from professionals.
  • Transportation services: Not having reliable transportation shouldn’t prevent you from getting the care you need. We provide free rides to and from treatment during your time in our outpatient program. Your therapist can also connect you to community resources to help you on your recovery journey.
  • Care for military members: The COMPACT Act entitles service members in a suicidal crisis to no-cost inpatient or outpatient mental health treatment, even if you’re not enrolled with the VA or are uninsured. We also proudly accept TRICARE®, the health benefits program for retired and active-duty military.

What Is an Intensive Outpatient Program?

Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) is a structured, part-time recovery track that involves group therapy three days per week, 9 a.m. to noon. This flexible schedule allows you time to: 

  • Apply the skills you learn during treatment to your day-to-day life
  • Reintegrate into your community 
  • Spend time with your family and loved ones
  • Work and attend to outside responsibilities 

You may go directly into IOP after your initial assessment. However, many people step down to IOP from the more intensive partial hospitalization program or inpatient treatment. We offer all levels of care at the Vines, so you can get the treatments and services you need at any stage of your recovery journey. 

Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Treatment

Our IOP for substance use disorders uses group therapy to help you identify stressors, gain coping skills and connect with a group of peers facing similar challenges. In fact, many licensed therapists at the Vines have been through their own recovery journeys. They offer unique perspectives about their paths to sobriety. 

We make our group sessions as dynamic and interactive as possible, drawing on a range of therapies to help you heal, including: 

  • 12-step programs 
  • Anger management
  • Coping skills and self-control
  • Expressive therapy (art, dramatization and role-playing)
  • Goal setting
  • Medication therapy
  • Monthly check-ins with your psychiatrist
  • Trauma-focused therapy

Intensive Outpatient Program for Mental Health Disorders

Many people with a substance use disorder also have a mental health disorder. Get individualized care for co-occurring disorders (dual diagnosis) in our mental health treatment program. 

We emphasize trauma identification and resolution. We explore past trauma, such as sexual assault, domestic violence, emotional abuse or combat, and its link to mental or behavioral health disorders. 

We care for a range of conditions at the Vines, including: 

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Behavioral addictions, such as gambling, work or sex
  • Co-dependency
  • Co-occurring disorders
  • Depression
  • Grief and loss
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
