Adult Treatment Services
The AMRS program is a one-year out-patient program dedicated to the treatment of substance use disorder, and to restoring the health and quality of life to members of Kaiser Permanente.
***For Adolescent services, treatment is designed for the specific needs of adolescents.
There are 2 adult treatment tracks offered; Day Treatment and the ADAP (Adult Drug and Alcohol Program). Both programs utilize five basic modalities:
- Medical and psychological evaluation
- Detoxification (based on medical necessity)
- Group and individual therapy
- Education and skill-building
The Day Treatment track is an intensive outpatient substance abuse program designed for individuals who require a highly-structured outpatient environment. The intensive nature of this program is such that patients are not able to work while participating. Assistance is provided for patients to request medical leave from their employers and help with submitting disability insurance claims, or FMLA leave (refer to “Process for Obtaining SDI” link).
- Medical and psychological evaluation and program orientation
- 21 days in highly-structured group sessions, scheduled across weekdays, evenings, weekends and holidays.
- Individual sessions with a primary therapist.

- The ADAP track is intended for individuals who are maintaining regular work schedules and need to receive treatment around their work schedules.
- Treatment includes medical and psychological evaluations as needed. Combination of group, individual, and educational sessions several times weekly (mornings and/or evenings) for three weeks. This treatment is combined with required participation in self-help meetings.

The DDIOP program is a short-term outpatient treatment program for patients with both mental health and substance dependency problems.
The groups meet four times a week from 9:30 – 12:30
The DDIOP provides treatment to adults with coexisting psychiatric and substance abuse issues. The treatment goals include:
- Reduction or termination of drug and alcohol abuse
- Management of mental health problems
- Development of healthy life coping skills
Each participant in the program will work with a therapist who will assist in the development of a personalized treatment plan. The therapist and the participant will review past events leading up to their current situation and develop a recovery plan to resolve current problems.
If necessary, patients may be evaluated and medically treated by the program psychiatrist to support their recovery plan.
Due to the nature of this program, frequently patients need a medical leave of absence for the 4 weeks they are engaged in treatment. This program is eligible for FMLA leave, or disability insurance claims (if provided by your employer). Please refer to “Process for Obtaining SDI” link.
