The Men’s Intensive Outpatient Treatment (MIOT) modality is a gender specific, trauma-informed, mental health, wellness treatment experience for men who have experienced negative consequences related to substance abuse. Peer support is a vital element of this modality as it helps men learn the value of acknowledging and appropriately expressing of feelings in a supportive environment. Learning that emotional vulnerability is a natural, healthy experience is a key element of the modality. Programing is intensive with patients receiving mental health and substance abuse counseling focusing on strengthening reflective functioning, emotional regulation, and interpersonal conflict management skills. In addition, the importance of fathers in children’s lives is emphasized and discussed. The program is non-punitive, educational, and supportive, which encourages participants to increase self-awareness, and build strengths and skills necessary for independent substance free living.
