The Matt Talbot Center is uniquely positioned to meet the needs of our community. The depth of services and length of program we offer combined with wraparound care, a community-focused environment, and an accessible service model have proven highly effective for our members, many of whom have cycled through multiple other recovery programs prior to enrolling at MTC. We also offer aftercare support to those who have completed our program, so current members and graduates know they’re never alone in their recoveries.
Long-Term Support for Long-Term Success
The average duration of an intensive outpatient program is roughly 9 to 12 hours a week for 8 to 12 weeks. For many of our members, this simply isn't enough. It takes time to rebuild healthy social and emotional behaviors in a sober context and create a stable foundation for recovery. This is why the first phase of our program is the most intensive, offering one-on-one case management and group clinical programming 5 days a week for between 5 and 6 hours a day. As they progress through each phase of the program, members build independence and begin to work toward professional, educational, familial, and other goals so they're equipped for success upon graduation.
Wraparound Care, All in One Place
Often, people struggling with addiction or substance use disorder who have needs beyond basic recovery programming have to access other services through multiple different providers. Navigating the systems needed to do so is simply not feasible for many folks who are experiencing addiction and other forms of instability. We provide our program members with intensive outpatient clinical programming and case management in addition to specialized mental health care, group sessions, meals, housing placement, job placement support, and other wraparound services to ensure that they can focus fully on their recoveries without worrying about their day-to-day needs.
Not only is our program free to all members, but we have no insurance requirement, which is rare in our field. There are a number of other programs that are “cost free” but require that clients have insurance or Medicaid coverage to enroll. Addiction and lack of resources are often compounding issues, and many of the people most in need of our services don't have insurance coverage. While we accept insurance from members who have it, we do not require it to ensure that our program remains truly accessible to the whole community.
A True Community
Through our year-long program members become part of a community that stays with them long after graduation. A support network is essential to a stable recovery and the power of human connection in our program cannot be emphasized enough. The culture of community at MTC has created an environment where we are fortunate to have members and program graduates alike engage in and support each other through the ups and downs of recovery.
