Based in Sandy, Utah, Changes Counseling and Consultation offers outpatient-based substance abuse treatment and a variety of behavioral health counseling services. While its most comprehensive substance abuse program is the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), CCC also offers DUI classes and a basic drug and alcohol education workshop. Treatment is evidence-based and focuses on cognitive restructuring helping clients to change their behavior and re-build familial relationships as a foundation for lasting recovery.
Treatment and Staff
CCC does not offer medical detox services and clients who are in need of this stage of treatment must complete this process before beginning treatment at CCC. Clients are typically a mix of court-appointed and self-referred clients and the facility endeavors to tailor programs to fit individual needs. The facility’s IOP consists of group therapy sessions meeting three times a week and individual therapy on an as-needed basis. Groups are typically three hours long while individual sessions last an hour though both are lead by LADCs.
Clients can also enroll in a standard outpatient program, which is similar to the IOP but requires attendance of fewer group sessions per week. CCC endorses a variety of methodologies, with CBT and 12-step recovery concepts the primary focus of treatment. While there is a dual diagnosis program available featuring group and individual sessions to address co-occurring disorders, there is no psychiatrist on staff nor is medication management available. Though there is not a distinct family program, clients are able to invite family members to attend individual therapy sessions.
Though IOP and standard outpatient are the most comprehensive services available at CCC, the facility also offers a PRIME for Life DUI class, a 16-hour program taught in four, four-hour sessions. The program is outfitted to meet all of Utah’s legal requirements for alcohol and drug education and is led by certified professionals. There’s also an Alcohol and Drug Education workshop, which is a single six-hour class taught on Saturday that serves as a risk prevention primer. Clients can also add individual therapy sessions to complement this class. The facility also offers a Thinking Errors course in seven stages tailored for criminal offenders to help them change their negative thought patterns.
Lengths of stay can vary greatly as CCC stands firm on the belief that individualizing each client’s program as much as possible contributes to lasting sobriety. Additionally, all alumni have access to a free and indefinite aftercare program consisting of group therapy sessions
For clients looking to individualize their program further, CCC offers special groups for specific issues such as a domestic violence prevention program with male and female-specific groups. There’s also an anger management class taught in one six-hour block that uses CBT to prevent anger and aggression.
With both an IOP, a standard outpatient program and a variety of supplementary offerings, Changes Counseling and Consultation provides varying options for Sandy-area individuals seeking treatment for substance abuse. All participants can expect a mix of group and individual sessions with dual diagnosis options, as well as an extensive aftercare program. In all, Changes Counseling and Consultation offers a range of flexible treatment programs tailored to the needs of each client.
