Treatment and Staff
The outpatient facility at ACCA is certified by New York State OASAS for clinical services. The length and intensity of treatment varies by client. Upon intake, all participants are given an evaluation and assessment. Outpatient clients attend group therapy at least once a week. Groups run from 9 am to 2 pm, Monday through Friday. Evening groups happen three days a week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Clients work with an assigned counselor throughout treatment, all of whom are CASACs. The average length of treatment is a minimum of six months for the day and night programs. The day program offers three groups each weekday and clients meet with their counselors a minimum of once a month. Counselors encourage clients to explore different avenues in recovery, including journaling, educational lectures and presentations. A psychiatrist is available on-site on Mondays and Tuesdays. She offers medication management and monitors medication assisted treatment, using Vivitrol (an injectable version of naltrexone).
