Outpatient Treatment Program
The EmpowerU Family Engagement program at Karla Smith Behavioral Health provides an intensive therapeutic experience that takes recovery to a whole new level. This 12 week intensive program for Teens, Young Adults, Adults and their families, is designed for the client returning home from a residential treatment center, or a client who needs more intensive therapy than can be achieved in a traditional weekly therapy session. Empower U is delivered through a combination of Group, Individual and Family Therapy. While the program formally concludes after 12 weeks, our Empower U clients and families generally remain engaged with their therapists and our Continuing Care groups indefinitely. The program includes 4 primary components delivered by Licensed Mental Health professionals.
A professionally facilitated therapeutic group remains available to all Empower U members at no charge following completion of the program for as long as a member wishes to attend.
