At Affinity Counseling and Treatment clients are offered outpatient services for chemical dependency. The facility is located in Vancouver, Washington and caters to those who are self-referred as well as individuals who are court-ordered into treatment. There are both basic outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) available as well as alcohol and drug educational services.
Located on the north bank of the Columbia River, the city of Vancouver is just over the Washington state line from Oregon, and only 17 miles outside of Portland.
Treatment and Staff
Potential Affinity clients undergo an initial bio-psycho-social assessment which typically takes about an hour. Those in need of medication are given referrals for psychiatric care.
While CBT is the primary treatment method, counselors also use Motivational Interviewing (MI) during individual and group therapy sessions. Clients are taught to set goals to work towards while counselors monitor their progress. 12-step participation is encouraged as support for treatment and in certain cases counselors may require clients to attend weekly AA/NA meetings.
The IOP consists of group sessions three times a week for a total of eight weeks. Groups meet on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 8 pm. Those in the basic outpatient track participate for 12 to 26 weeks depending on their diagnosis and typically attend one weekly two-hour group session.
Depending on the individual, clients also attend an educational group meeting on Wednesdays from 6 to 8 pm or a relapse prevention group at the same time on Thursdays. The educational group focuses on addressing the negative affects of substance abuse and on teaching the addiction-as-disease model. The Monday group is discussion-based and covers anger management, coping skills, family dynamics and vocational goals. Individual counseling is offered once a month.
Affinity’s therapeutic staff consists of two CADCs who lead groups and provide one-on-one counseling.
Affinity also offers an eight hour alcohol and drug information program that takes places on the first and third Saturday of the month. The class is for those who have been charged with a DUI or other drug related offenses. Focus is on providing individuals with the necessary tools they need to avoid future substance-related legal problems. The class also gives clients a chance to openly share their stories.
Affinity Counseling and Treatment offers traditional outpatient services with a few different track options depending on the severity of each client’s case. Still, group therapy sessions are kept small and the programs are flexible and affordable. Whether clients are seeking treatment independently or are compelled through the judicial system, Affinity Counseling is a good option for individuals who do not need a comprehensive inpatient or detox services.
