- Intensive Outpatient Program
Designed for individuals with chronic needs, clients receive services primarily through group therapy, but are also assigned an individual therapist to meet with on a weekly or biweekly basis while in treatment. Clients engage in treatment 9 to 12 hours per week.
Intensive outpatient services can also enable people in recovery to continue their therapies following successful detox, on a part-time yet intensive schedule, designed to accommodate work and family life.

Prevention Education: The ACCA delivers prevention education to thousands of Capital Region children each year to help support healthy communities and prevent underage drinking, drug abuse and other risky behaviors such as early sexual activity, school delinquency and teen violence.
Programs we teach: An Apple A Day© (AAAD), Too Good For Drugs by Mendez Foundation, Grow Girl!© and Boys Only!©Strong Families, Anti-Bullying Programming and more!
ACCA’s Evidence-based An Apple A Day© program begins in Kindergarten and is delivered each year, through fourth grade, so that we are able to reach children on a regular basis long before underage drinking behaviors are established. In middle school, when peer pressure to engage in underage drinking and risky behaviors increases, students receive the Grow Girl!© and Boys Only© gender-specific curricula to support the information learned in elementary school.
The programs are based on the Risk and Protective framework ofHawkins and Catalano (University of Washington) and the resiliency-building research of Dr. Bonnie Bernard. This research indicates that many children raised in the direst of circumstances, surrounded by alcohol and other drug abuse, violence, poverty and/or mental illness were able to overcome their hardships and become more “resilient” children. The authors describe key attributes and several “protective factors” that have the ability to negate risk factors and lessen their impact on a child’s life. Protective factors help a child to become more resilient and focus on the root causes of underage drinking and other risky behaviors. Some of these “protective factors” include the following:
- Goal Setting Skills
- Social & Interpersonal Skills
- Sense of Humor
- Open Communication
- Positive Peer Influence
