Drinking doesn’t always lead to alcohol abuse or alcohol addiction.

However, if alcohol causes issues at work, school, home, or in your relationships you should reach out to talk.

Symptoms of issues with alcohol include:

  • Can’t remember what you did while drinking
  • Needing more and more to feel “good” or de-stress
  • Hurting yourself or others when drinking
  • Having others worried about your drinking
  • Feeling sick to your stomach, sweating, shaking, or feeling anxious while not drinking
  • Hiding your drinking or lying to others about it
  • Neglecting responsibilities at school or work

If you think you or someone you love may have a problem with alcohol, find help and hope at one of these local organizations.

It's About Connection

Individuals who have never been in a group are often surprised to discover that they truly enjoy the experience and make significant strides they would not have otherwise made in individual therapy. Groups also allow for exponential multiplication of time and energy. Just one week of Innova's group therapy program is equivalent to over 3 months of individual therapy.

Intensive Outpatient Programs

Our Intensive Outpatient (IOP) treatment offers the option of joining from the comfort and privacy of your own home on your smartphone or laptop. You will attend group meetings, with no more than 8-12 in a group , for three days a week.

Typically, the program lasts 12 weeks, depending on individual progression. Our team will walk you from your initial phone call to having you join your first meeting, to ensure you always have support.

  • For Women-For women, led by women, our goal is to provide support on your journey to recovery using several techniques and methods.
  • For Men-Men leave our program with less irritability, a greater understanding of how to deal with life?s stress and a more confident sense of self.
  • For Teens-Teens are much more likely to engage in this setting as it feels safe and protected and speaks to their lifestyle.

Most insurances do not require a referral to see a therapist.  Simply make an appointment and being your journey.

An intervention gives an opportunity for family & friends to help a loved one realize the extent of their problem. Refusal to concede to having a problem is a trademark of addictive behavior. An intervention emphasizes their serious condition and guides them to the realization that it is time to get help.

Our trained professionals have recovered from addictions, which allows them to understand the addictive person from their mutual struggle.

We offer a sliding scale and scholarships for individuals that qualify.

This level of care is ideal for teens who need intensive therapeutic support during the day but are able to return home at night. For many adolescents who are concerned about being away from home, this is ideal.

Teens attend programming 8 hours per day, 5-6 days per week, all while going home at night.

Teens in Innova's PhP receive seven hours of therapeutic intervention per day. The intervention includes on-site schooling, led by a certified teacher who also understands mental health and provides individualized attention. They will also spend time with specialized therapeutic groups designed to target symptoms commonly associated with trauma, such as:

  • Avoidance of people, places, and relationships
  • Nightmares and sleep issues
  • Social anxiety
  • Difficulty connecting with others
  • Behavior problems
  • Self-harm
  • Irritability, angry outbursts
  • Difficulty trusting others
  • Trouble at school

We are partnered with an accredited school so your teen can earn credits while getting the support they need.  Many of our teens are actually able to catch up on missed credits or even get ahead by earning extra credits while in our program.  

We present skills in a way that is engaging and easy forteenagers to understand.   We also work to uncover the cause of their struggles so that issues at dealt with at the root and not just covered up.

Over time, disorders such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), and more can develop as a result of these cognitive distortions. Below are four examples of cognitive distortions identified in CBT.

  • Individual Therapy
    In most teen treatment centers, individual sessions are offered only once a week. At Innova Joy, teens attend multiple weekly sessions with licensed clinicians. We create specialized treatment plans tailored to the specific constellation of behaviors and co-occurring issues.
  • Parent Support
    You desire a deeper bond and understanding with your teen, but may just not know how to get there. Innova Joy offers coaching and support groups for parents to redefine their relationships with their teens, allowing for improved communication, understanding and trust.
  • Academics
    The academic component of your teen's life is critical to establishing a structured environment. Your child will attend classes daily with a certified teacher to help regain school credits and ensure they are well prepared academically post graduation from our program.
  • Trauma-Focused Treatment
    Trauma is often stored in the body as well as the mind; therefore, we believe in treating the whole person. From animal-assisted therapy to EMDR, we ensure that every aspect of your teen's experience promotes healing and wellness.
