Substance Use Disorder


The Summa Health Addiction Medicine Intensive Outpatient Program is a group therapy treatment program for those with alcohol or substance use disorder diagnoses. Available days or evenings, the program runs three days a week, three hours a day, for an average of 16 to 20 sessions.

Our treatment recommendations are based on the identified needs and goals of each patient that will provide the best opportunity for obtaining and maintaining a substance-free recovery.  Summa’s program incorporates both abstinence-based and harm reduction strategies. As the birthplace of the first inpatient hospital program to treat alcohol use disorder, as well as the home of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), we continue to be strong supporters of the use of a 12-step recovery program, such as AA. In addition, we also encourage the use of harm-reduction strategies, such as Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) and/or other community support programs when appropriate.
