Patients will be able to receive a shortened once/weekly individual counseling session that will be counted as their normal group attendance for the week. Individual counseling will be held in the office (face-to-face) via telehealth (video and audio), or telephonically (audio only).   New patients will still be accepted for all groups, but they will automatically be enrolled in the new individual counseling structure. This includes: IOP; StOP; Women’s DV; Men’s DV; Native STAND; Anger Management; StOP/IOP in San Lucy (no face-to-face option).
