Substance Use & Addictive Behaviors Treatment
The length and type of treatment is based on the needs of the client, and both psychotherapy and medication management services are available.
Addiction Day Treatment
With this form of treatment, individuals receive treatment during the day and return home at night. Those who qualify are physically and emotionally stable enough to remain abstinent in the evening without peer support. Patients attend daily group therapy, lectures, and discussion groups.
Outpatient rehabilitation programs do not require individuals to take time off from work, leave their families or enter the hospital as an inpatient. They include a series of meetings, four nights per week, featuring lectures and group therapy. Counseling continues until the patient has mastered the basic skills for self-care and ongoing recovery.
Successful outpatient candidates include people who are employed, live with a supportive family, have a history of medical stability, and demonstrate the ability to abstain from mood-altering chemicals/activities. The Outpatient Rehabilitation Program tailors the length of treatment and stay to meet each individual's needs.
Continuing care for adults is a critical part of all recovery programs. In this program, individuals continue to utilize the tools they learned in treatment while they receive support from their counselor, peers, significant others, and the 12- step community. During continuing care, individuals attend individual and group counseling at a less intensive level than primary treatment, while remaining in the community. Regular 12-step meeting attendance is also required. The length of treatment is tailored to the needs of the individual.
The extended care program is designed for individuals 18 years or older who are engaging in addictive behaviors. It is a variable length of stay program where participants attend up to 90 days of primary treatment. Adults will receive individualized treatment planning tailored to the various phases of treatment.
In Phase 1, patients may participate in any combination of detoxification services, inpatient/residential treatment, and/or addiction day treatment. Once complete, patients will participate in an intensive outpatient program, tapering into a continuing care component focused on community involvement. Therapy services can also include individual, family, and group sessions. Specialty groups are also available to address issued surrounding, but not limited to, dual diagnosis, trauma, anger management/conflict resolution, mood stabilization, chronic pain, and financial concerns.
The Early intervention program is a psychoeducational program designed for adults who may be engaging in at-risk behaviors, such as chemical, gambling, Internet, video game, or spending behaviors.
A loving, caring family that understands and supports recovery is critical. We involve families in our family program, family conferences and Al-Anon to help them learn about addiction and mobilize their love and support effectively for the addicted family member.
