The IFHC offers comprehensive Behavioral Health services, to include Levels .5 and Level 1 outpatient care.  Level .5 is an early intervention service designed to explore and address problems or risk factors that appear to be related to substance use and helps the individual recognize the harmful consequences of inappropriate use.  Level 1 care is personalized addiction counseling services to individuals who are assessed as meeting the diagnostic criteria for a Substance Related Disorder as defined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders  as well as meeting Dimensional Criteria.  Finally, we offer Level 1 as a “step-down” from a more intensive level of care, which is considered our Relapse Prevention after-care Program.  This also includes individual and group counseling sessions.

IFHC’s Outpatient Services include individual counseling, group counseling, gambling addiction counseling, motivational enhancement therapies, family therapies,  educational groups, and cultural activities for adolescents, adults and their family who are struggling with a substance abuse disorder.  Referrals are also made for Level 2.1 Intensive outpatient and Level 3.5 – 3.7 inpatient services as well as mental health services, along with case management to assist with community referrals for a multitude of other resources.

The IFHC Behavioral Health Program offers a safe, welcoming and non-judgmental environment to learn and heal.  IFHC is also dedicated to providing individualized quality services with the highest levels of patient care.
