Addiction Treatment Services

Our addiction treatment services emphasize the development of new and appropriate coping strategies for managing dependencies. Treatment recommendations and planning are diagnosis driven and customized to the client’s individual needs by licensed clinical addiction counselors.

The process is collaborative and focused on the areas the client most strongly wants to address.

Because treating addiction is a commitment, our services come in several stages, each suited to a different stage of the recovery process:

Level One—Education

Group sessions are available once a week (individual sessions may be available as well). The groups focus on education about substance abuse, related behavior, and skill development, including specific discussions on:

  • Types of Chemicals Commonly Abused
  • States of Change
  • Defense Mechanisms
  • Coping Skills
  • Impact on Relationships: Friends, Family, and Community

Level Two—Psychotherapy

Group sessions are available twice a week. The psychotherapy group focuses on interpersonal processes related to:

  • Development Issues
  • Biological Characteristics
  • Environmental Influences
  • Psychological and Cognitive Processes
  • Perceptions
  • Relationship Patterns

Level Three—Intensive Outpatient Program

Our intensive outpatient program is a combination of our education and psychotherapy services, lending to a more intensive approach to substance abuse treatment. Some of the reasons an individual may be placed in an outpatient program include a high risk for relapse, dependencies indicated by diagnostic impressions, and limited support from external sources.

Level Four—Relapse Prevention

Group sessions are available once a week (individual sessions may also be available). Relapse prevention is geared toward clients who have attained abstinence but have not necessarily established the skills to maintain a drug-free state. Relapse prevention focuses on stabilizing lifestyle through changes in behavior by addressing the following topics:

  • Cognitive Restructuring: Thinking Errors, Triggers, High Risk Situations
  • Problem Solving and Skill Building
  • Relapse Prevention Plans
  • Development of Social Support Networks

Level Five—Aftercare

Individual and support sessions are available once a week. Support sessions assist families in understanding the behavior of a person with a substance abuse disorder in a way that allows them to support the individual in recovery and learn about their own needs for change. Topics addressed during aftercare include:

  • Reinforcing Positive Changes
  • Creating a Plan for Ongoing Care and Continued Success
