As you can see below, we offer a variety of substance use services. These services are continuously offered at numerous times and days to ensure that they best fit your schedule.

We begin with a comprehensible assessment to develop a personalized treatment plan for you and, when appropriate, your family.

Crisis Stabilization

Crisis stabilization services are designed to be available when you need them. These services help you during periods of high stress and at critical points in your treatment and recovery process. Effective use of crisis stabilization services helps you maintain treatment progress and prevent unnecessary hospitalizations during a mental health crisis.

Outpatient Therapy

We respect that recovery looks different for everybody. We can meet with you one on one to identify your reasons for substance use and develop a plan for recovery. Also, we can work with your family to help them to provide support for your recovery plan and process.

Our professionals understand that substance use and mental health issues often occur together. We identify and treat both issues to improve your skills for continuing in your recovery.

If medication can be helpful in strengthening your recovery, our psychiatric services staff provide assessment, evaluation, and supportive medication therapy.

Intensive Outpatient Program for Adults

We offer an intensive outpatient program for adults who are using alcohol and/or drugs. Evidence-based treatment is used to promote sobriety and recovery.

The components of our intensive outpatient program include:

  • Education: Recovery involves increasing your knowledge about substance use and addiction. Our educational component includes the following topics:
    • addiction as a disease
    • stages of addiction
    • recovery process and stages of recovery
    • relapse prevention
    • developing and understanding coping skills
    • co-dependency
    • reducing interpersonal violence and developing healthy relationships
  • Leisure Time Skills Development: Learn the value of having positive leisure activities that do not include drugs/alcohol. Developing this skill helps weaken the association that substance use must be present at times of enjoyment.
  • Anger Management/Assertiveness: Develop and improve skills that help you express and respond to your needs and anger in constructive ways without the use of substances.
  • Group Therapy/Aftercare: Group therapy helps you discuss, develop and improve your personal recovery as well as helps you learn from others who are engaging in recovery. Our therapeutic group helps you improve your life skills and acquire a support system for those times when your recovery is challenged.
  • Individual Therapy: Individual therapy provides you with a means to work on improving your personal mental health while also working on your recovery plan and process.
Case Management

Our case manager meets with you to help you develop your individualized treatment and recovery plan, acts as a coach to encourage you along your plan, and helps you access other needed resources in the community.
