SARP - Substance Abuse Rehab Program
Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program
The Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program (SARP) provides substance abuse screening, treatment, continuing care and referral for active duty military personnel.
Patients are seen following referral from the Drug & Alcohol Abuse Prevention Assistants (DAPA) working at one of many tenant commands aboard Lemoore Naval Air Station and other military bases throughout northern and central California and Nevada. SARP also encourages self-referral for anyone would like to speak to a counselor.
SARP provides drug and/or alcohol abuse assessment, consultation, education, outpatient treatment, intensive outpatient treatment, and continuing care services for all active duty adults. SARP counselors are also available to brief commands directly on SARP programs.
Treatment levels offered include:
Impact: A three day program designed for patients who have not been diagnosed with a significant substance related disorder, but whose use of substances has created concern for the patient or the patient's command. Impact involves participation in an interactive educational curriculum and exposure to 12 step recovery programs.
Outpatient: An eight day program designed primarily for patients diagnosed with Alcohol Abuse. Treatment is designed to assist the patient with the development of a responsible drinking plan, as well as providing information on healthy alternatives to substance use and abuse. Treatment involves participation in small and large group counseling, workshops and task groups, and self-help/12-Step meetings.
Intensive Outpatient: A three-week program designed for patients who are diagnosed with Alcohol Dependence and/or are determined to be in need of an abstinence based treatment program. Patients will be in treatment for full days throughout the three week program. Patients coming from out of the area will be required to arrange berthing at a local BEQ. Treatment consists of participation in group counseling, workshops and task groups, physical fitness and self-help/12-Step meetings.
Residential: Patients meeting criteria for residential programs will be referred to a military or Tricare-approved treatment facility.
Continuing Care: This program is available for all patients following Intensive Outpatient and Residential treatment programs. Patients may participate in these groups for up to one year after inpatient or outpatient treatment concludes. Weekly groups provide the patient an opportunity to work with trained professionals as they apply things learned in treatment in their daily lives.
Continuing Care is also open to past patients who wish to get more support for their sobriety. Groups convene Tuesdays at 1230, and Thursdays at 0800.
