Treatment and Staff
The Jonesboro Treatment Clinic offers substance abuse treatment and psychological care for young adults and adolescents who qualify for care. Before admittance, all clients are seen for a bio-psycho-social assessment to determine the level of care needed. This screening process ensures that clients thrive in an outpatient or day treatment program versus a more intensive treatment track. Jonesboro uses individualized treatment approaches to meet each client’s unique needs.
Substance abuse treatment typically incorporates CBT techniques through group therapy. Groups are conducted by psychotherapists who have experience working with young people and addressing their unique needs. Groups focus on peer pressure, learning healthy coping skills and relapse prevention. In addition to groups, clients attend individual therapy with their primary therapist. The primary therapist also treats family members during family sessions. Because the clients are so young, having the family involved is pivotal in the child’s recovery. Some clients may also be referred to young people’s 12-step meetings if it is thought to be beneficial.
Jonesboro also provides care for co-occurring disorders and clients meet with doctors and a medical staff for medication management to treat any existing mental health diagnoses. Physical, speech and occupational therapy services are also available for all clients.
In addition to traditional therapeutic approaches, Jonesboro offers alternative methods including play and art therapy. Other experiential therapies and resources for healing children and young adults are available to assist in healing from trauma and substance abuse.
The Jonesboro Day Treatment and Outpatient Clinic is part of an expansive network of treatment facilities. With substance abuse and mental health treatment for children and youth struggling with developmental and behavioral issues, treatment combines traditional evidence-based techniques with alternative methods to provide a comprehensive treatment experience. Jonesboro works to help clients and their families work towards recovery and healthy relationships together.
