Intensive Outpatient (IOP)Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
Residential TreatmentResidential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

Meet the Staff
- Dr. Bill MorrisMedical DirectorI’ve been with Janus since October of 2003 and am certified to prescribe methadone and buprenorphine. My professional background covers many years of study and experience, including a two-year residency at Johns Hopkins and working in Puerto Rico and Jamaica. The best part of being at Janus is working with the people here and I can attest to the fact that the collaborative approach to providing this treatment really works. I would like any person struggling with the many challenges of drug or alcohol addiction to remember that this is an illness, not a moral weakness. We’re here to treat your illness, just like we would diabetes or cancer.
- Cecilia KrebsDeputy Director - ProgramsIn my role as deputy Director-Programs I manage The Community Clinic (methadone) as well as the Recovery Programs which include sub-acute detoxification, residential and day treatment and intensive outpatient. I’ve been the Program Director of the Janus Community Clinic since 2006, and am a Certified Addictions R.N. and Psychiatric Nurse. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to offer all of our patients the possibility of freedom from their addiction, to raise happy and healthy children, go to school, regain dignity, be happy. It takes courage to make the decision to decrease or eliminate the use of a substance that has filled your needs and been a part of your life. We understand that. We’re here to support and encourage, not judge or demand.
