Dig in so you can branch out to become your best self

Evening IOP is not widely available for people seeking treatment for behavioral health issues. CAST Centers recognized that many people are in need of help that is provided at alternate times after the close of business or school.  Thus, we created Luna, based on our daytime program of Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).

Luna is a flexible immersion experience with multi-modality programming that emphasizes evidence-based practices.  Group therapy includes modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), mindful meditation, and psychoeducation. Our staff is committed to helping clients recover and work through underlying issues.

Participation in evening sessions of IOP helps clients continue their recovery journey by extending progress made in previous treatment and residential programs. The Luna program may be suitable for individuals who want to maintain their daily work or school schedule and who can prosper with an abbreviated evening program. Luna IOP in the evenings could be a key for such people to stay engaged in recovery.

Luna IOP is flexible to accommodate client needs and circumstances. For many clients, four weeks of three evening sessions per week may be appropriate.

+ Group Therapy

Group therapy offers the chance for small groups of clients to meet regularly in a safe, comfortable space where talking, sharing, interacting, and discussing problems is facilitated and guided by a therapist. While guiding the group in self-discovery, the therapist also encourages group interaction. Many find that interacting in a group setting is more natural than one-on-one counseling and it affords participants the chance to experience empathy for group members and to release the notion that they are alone in their struggles. Feedback from group members allows for compassion, constructive suggestions, insights, and a sense of camaraderie to develop and aid the healing process.

+ Help for Families

The mission of the Family Day Program is to provide a hopeful, supportive and educational space for our clients’ loved ones. Through education, we aim to destigmatize mental health and addiction treatment. Through support, we aim to empower loved ones to begin their own healing process. Our program is open to the family members and partners of CAST Centers current clients and alumni.
