Barclay and Associates LLC is a multi-practitioner facility offering access to professional counselors and therapists with a range of specialties. Located in the city of Ames, Iowa, just 30 miles from Des Moines, BA offers a substance abuse treatment program that is highly individualized to each client, using evidence-based methods employed via individual, group, family and marital counseling.
Treatment and Staff
Those seeking treatment for substance abuse must first go through an initial assessment and evaluation to determine the level of severity and which treatments would be best suited for successful recovery. From there, the staff psychiatrist recommends an appropriate treatment plan which includes frequency and type of treatment—individual and group therapy with fellow substance abuse clients, family counseling or couples counseling.
BA also provides medication management for those in need. Adjunct therapies and treatments that may also be included in one’s treatment plan are anger management or specialized programming for those with co-occurring disorders. All treatment therapies are based in CBT methodology. Although the 12 steps are not incorporated, clients are encouraged to attend meetings outside of the scope of the BA program.
The staff at BA consists of seven MFTs, a clinical dietitian, a physician’s assistant and a board certified psychiatrist.
In addition to the substance abuse treatment program, BA also offers a variety of other services from their diverse staff. Programs for eating disorders, emotional regulation problems, PTSD (treated with EMDR) as well as health and wellness coaching are all available.
Although BA’s approach to treatment may not be structured enough for individuals requiring an intensive or inpatient program, it is highly individualized and aims to treat the person as a whole—not just the disease. Clients benefit from unique treatment paths, are paired with a diverse and experienced professional staff and work a program that combines medication management as needed with traditional therapeutic methods.
