Treatment and Staff
Clients seeking treatment begin with an assessment that includes a meeting with a physician and addiction screening. They are offered individualized programming that can include any combination of medication and therapy. Due to the nature of individualized treatment, there is no typical protocol, but generally there are group and individual sessions each week and monthly appointments to check the progress of medication. Treatment addresses relapse prevention, coping skills and includes strategies on how to regulate diet and sleep in conjunction with the program.
Typical IOP participation is at least nine hours a week in group and individual therapy. Treatment is broken down into two phases, with the initial stage lasting about six months and the second phase taking about another six months on average. Medication is offered to those who need assistance through the detox process, or for those who struggle with co-occurring disorders. Treatment at this facility utilizes psychotherapy and the Harm Reduction Model during group and one on one sessions. Addiction Treatment Strategies is so confident in their methods and success rates of their clients that they have even developed their own CBT curriculum.
The family program is a weekly group therapy and educational session which is for family members only. This program serves as a way to offer communication and support to loved ones and provide alternative ways to address the client’s needs and serve them in a healthy manner.
Addiction Treatment Strategies offers care that utilizes the most current scientific discoveries in treating addiction and brings it to their clientele. The programs are thorough, incorporating loved ones into the process, and with the treatments being long term, the success rates tend to be higher coming out of this facility. This is a good choice for this seeking a 12-step alternative outpatient program in the St. Louis area.
