INTL - It's Never Too Late
The program meets three to five days per week at the Chemical Dependency Outpatient Program at QHC. The program serves people that are 55 years and older with Chemical Dependency problems. The program offers individual, group, and family counseling, alcohol and drug education, nutritional counseling, acupuncture and activity therapy. It is found that group treatment is most effective in an age-segmented cohort where there is a greater commonality of life experience. Older adults were found to be less likely to speak out and talk in groups where the majority of the participants were their grandchildren's age. The individual session is important as well for those who feel they cannot share certain information in a group situation. We also refer clients within the hospital to other clinics to meet their needs, such as, Gerontology, Psychiatric Outpatient, and Dental.
