Opened in 2001, A CDM Assessment and Counseling of Guilford strives to offer affordable substance abuse counseling to residents of Greensboro, North Carolina. The facility provides the first step to clients in recovery by offering assessments, referrals and their own small outpatient program with group and individual counseling. A CDM also offers educational classes on addiction for both self-enrolled and court-ordered clients.
Treatment and Staff
The process at A CDM begins with an initial screening led by the head counselor. Clients are breathalyzed during intake to determine whether immediate detox or inpatient treatment is needed. Whenever necessary, A CDM can refer clients to the local hospital for a four to seven day detox during which clients are closely monitored. If inpatient care is needed, clients can be referred to any number of local programs.
The outpatient program at A CDM includes group counseling and educational classes. Although the length and intensity of the program is determined on a case-by-case basis, the program usually runs 20 or 40 hours in length in total. The facility has a small number of licensed drug and alcohol counselors available on-site, with one present in each group session.
Though counseling sessions are not AA or 12-step oriented, A CDM does use CBT-based therapy. Group sizes vary, and can range from from only four or five to 12 or 15 in a given class. A CDM does not have a doctor on-site, nor do they offer dual diagnosis support.
Educational classes are all based around different topics dealing with addiction, which vary by session. Each class consists of a brief lecture by the counselor, who then leads a discussion with the clients in the room. Occasionally, short videos are integrated into these teaching sessions as well. Classes run on a regular 30-day schedule, and because there is no fixed curriculum the clients can jump in at any time.
While A CDM does have a family program of sorts, this is truly an extra and is only integrated upon clients’ specific request. The program has no fixed parameters, and its scope is based entirely on what the counselors and clients decide on. The facility also has an aftercare program of group and individual counseling which lasts as long as clients need; A CDM can also refer clients to AA and NA groups in the area.
For those suffering from addiction in the Greensboro area, A CDM Assessment and Counseling is a great first step in the recovery process. Whether the client needs minor or major care, A CDM counselors genuinely do their best to fit the needs of the client’s recovery or provide a referral to another treatment center that can. Also, the treatment center’s outpatient program is highly affordable and would be a good option for clients without high-level health care.
