Addiction Recovery Center of the Black Hills has three locations in South Dakota; Hot Springs, Rapid City and Custer. This facility, which was founded in 1974, provides Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) for adults and adolescents for substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Treatment is a comprehensive combination of traditional and holistic options offered through group and individual therapy.
Treatment and Staff
An intake counselor performs a standard chemical dependency evaluation then determines the level of care necessary. IOP groups are offered in the evenings either Mondays through Wednesdays, or Tuesdays through Thursdays to work around work and school schedules, and the focus varies a bit depending on what groups you attend. Some specialize more on relapse prevention or how to refrain from illegal activity while under the influence and some emphasize mental health and the effects of alcohol on the brain. There is also a specialty IOP that was designed by the University of Cincinnati Corrections Institute that uses CBT to explore how habitual drug use began for the individual clients. That schedule runs on a more flexible schedule than the other IOP’s.
Treatment for both the adolescent and adults tracks utilizes the same therapy methods, like art therapy, Moral Recognition Therapy (MRT) and the 12 steps. There is also an educational aspect to the programs helping clients learn the root of their addiction, identifying triggers and learning to deal with cravings. Depending on the needs of the client, individual therapy sessions are available one to four times a month, and aid in helping them track treatment goals. An added element to the adolescent treatment is the emphasis on zeroing in on self-esteem issues and relationships with their families. These programs last for about 24 weeks, with an option to step down to less intensive therapies requiring fewer treatment hours.
Between the three locations there are 12 licensed counselors that split their time at the facilities. These therapists are typically Bachelor’s or Master’s-level and have experience with substance abuse and co-occurring disorder treatment.
There are groups especially for the Native American community in this area, and aftercare planning. Gambling addiction services, gender specific aftercare, family and couples counseling also available.
The structured focus of the treatment offered at Addiction Recovery Center of the Black Hills encompasses many different types of therapy, allowing for clients to enter into a safe environment without the fear of being forced to adhere to a program they may not be comfortable with.
