The Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan is a CARF accredited network of facilities located in Royal Oak, Michigan—a suburb of Detroit. Five treatment facilities are distributed between the communities of Lapeer, Macomb, Oakland, St.Clair and Wayne Counties, providing mental health services for adults, adolescents and children.
Included among the mental health programs at each location is an outpatient program for substance abuse and addiction. The program is designed for mild to moderate abuse and dependence, but includes a wide variety of unique evidence-based treatment methods.
Treatment and Staff
Prior to enrollment in a program, clients must schedule an appointment with a therapist for a bio-psycho-social assessment. If a client has co-occurring disorders, they are further assessed by a psychiatrist and prescribed medication if needed. Dual diagnosis support is available through medication management and additional one-on-one meetings with a therapist.
The outpatient substance abuse program is designed for clients with mild to moderate chemical dependency. If detox or more intensive treatment is needed, referrals are given to a local trusted residential or appropriate treatment resource. There is no standard length of treatment since the program is tailored to the individual.
The basic outpatient treatment is flexible and facilitated once per week for both group and individual therapy. Each session is one hour in length and is scheduled according to the client’s needs and availability. All groups are conducted by Master’s-level therapists with credentials that include CADCs, LCSWs and LPCs. Some locations have medical doctors on staff as well.
Treatment techniques vary between locations, but most provide evidence-based practices that incorporate CBT and DBT. Some therapists specialize in domestic violence and offer unique services for victims and perpetrators of abuse.
During treatment, clients are encouraged to attend 12-step meetings—though not required. If clients and their families find that they need additional services, including family therapy, sessions are scheduled at the discretion of the therapist.
While there is no formal family program or aftercare track, CCSM has a wealth of mental health programs available for clients and the community at large including services for anxiety, depression, OCD, marital and pre-marriage counseling, grief and loss, children’s issues and ADHD. Outside of mental health, CCSM has Hispanic and Refugee outreach services and special programs for unemployment, work problems aging issues and senior citizens. Additionally, CCSM offers play therapy for children, anger management classes and services for pregnancy and adoption.
Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan offers an eclectic mix of recovery, mental health and social programs from five locations throughout the state. Those enrolled in outpatient services for substance abuse have access to Master’s-level therapists and doctors who provide a wealth of knowledge and resources. The outpatient substance abuse program is an affordable, flexible and low-intensity option ideal for individuals with mild to moderate chemical dependency.
