The Clara Martin Center began as Orange County Mental Health in 1966, offering psychiatric and substance abuse services to residents of Orange County, Vermont. Clara Martin and her husband, Brewster, a physician, were working at a local nursing home in the 1950’s and started to notice the mentally ill patients’ struggles. They made affordable treatment their life’s work. The facility was renamed for Clara Martin when she passed away in 1990. Today, a network of centers have been offering affordable treatment for those suffering from mental illnesses and addiction for over 40 years; they provide outpatient and intensive outpatient programs (IOP)s in Wilder, Randolph and Montpelier, Vermont.
Treatment and Staff
The Clara Martin Center provides individualized and gender-specific intensive outpatient and outpatient treatment that is open to those with co-occurring disorders. Each client works with a case manager, who helps design their course of treatment. Learning to cope with emotions, stressors and trauma is a large component of treatment. The intensive outpatient program meets three nights a week for six weeks, while outpatient treatment meets once a week, but may vary depending on a client’s needs.
Treatment includes individual therapy, group therapy, psychoeducational groups, gender-specific groups, co-occurring groups, motivational groups and psychiatric evaluations. The staff includes psychiatrists, therapists, clinicians, social workers, case managers and administrative staff.
The Clara Martin Center offers a family program for clients undergoing substance abuse treatment. This entails both family and couples therapy for clients, to open the lines of communication and educate about addiction. For those who have been in the criminal justice system, Clara Martin Center offers a weekend DWI Program, called CRASH. For individuals requiring court-mandated treatment due to a driving while intoxicated offense.
The Clara Martin Center’s offers comprehensive treatment which addresses the needs of both the client and the persons affected by their addiction. The affordable treatment model, multiple locations and array of outpatient services for those suffering from substance abuse issues and co-occurring disorders make this center an ideal choice for addiction treatment in Vermont.
