Treatment and Staff
Treatment at CTLH begins with an initial evaluation and assessment to determine the unique needs of the client and to develop an individualized treatment plan. Clients are required to meet with their counselor at least once a week for individual CBT. The frequency and type of group therapy is dependent on the client’s treatment plan, although involvement in a 12-step program and group session attendance is required at least twice a week.
Addiction education seminars and groups are also offered to clients and their families to better understand the nature of chemical dependency and how to navigate through addiction and recovery. Random drug tests and breathalyzers are also administered throughout treatment to help clients meet their goals of being substance free. Prevention and intervention programs and seminars are also offered to clients and the broader tribal community.
In addition to substance abuse treatment and prevention programs, CTL offers numerous health, cultural and housing services as well as scholarships.
The no-nonsense outpatient treatment program at CTLH is structured while leaving room for individualized recovery planning. Tribal members will likely find it an excellent choice for those suffering from substance abuse and will benefit from broader community services.
