Only 10 miles Downriver from Detroit, Lincoln Park emerged in the 1920s as a bedroom community for Henry Ford’s Rouge River Plant. In an area that was originally home to the Potawatomi nation, during the 1960s its downtown White Castle restaurant was the hangout for a group of punk kids, who became the band MC5 in 1964.
Michiganders can still Kick Out the Jams of substance abuse by developing the skills needed to maintain a drug and alcohol free lifestyle with Community Care Services female-only Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for substance abuse.
Treatment and Staff
After a phone interview, Community Care Services staff assesses each client’s clinical and financial eligibility for services and determines whether pre-admission, crisis or hospital referral is most appropriate and which level of care is best. Referrals are made to other community service providers for detox and inpatient treatment.
The Adult Intensive Outpatient program in Lincoln Park is for men and women, 18 years or older. This structured program, which lasts from three to five weeks, is geared towards people in early recovery, claiming it takes into account the physical, mental and social elements of addiction.
Psychiatric and physical consultations help to address the specific challenges facing each individual. For those situations where it is determined that a client has co-occurring disorders, there is the Interdisciplinary Dual Diagnosis Treatment program, which meets multiple times a week and is overseen by its own program coordinator, therapists, case managers, client advocates and psychiatrists.
Regardless of which track clients end up in, case management appropriately balances treatment in individual, group, and family therapy, employing CBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Clients learn to deal with self-esteem issues, interpersonal relationships and how to handle stress. They are educated about the disease of addiction and taught to identify the triggers that lead to their drug or alcohol use. Community Care Services introduces its clients to relaxation techniques and meditation as positive coping mechanisms. It offers links to 12-step meetings, family support groups, aftercare planning and referrals.
The Women’s Intensive Outpatient program is offered at the Taylor, Michigan office, 10 miles southwest of the Lincoln Park Facility. Women in this program meet from 10 am to 1:30 pm Monday through Thursday for the three-to-five week period. Treatment addresses the unique challenges facing women in recovery, covering topics like codependency, self-esteem and proper parenting techniques. Women meet in groups of eight with a certified mental health and chemical dependency professional. Transportation to and from the facility and childcare are included in the cost of the program.
The great German poet Goethe wrote: “In all things it is better to hope than to despair.” Community Care Services aims to improve lives by integrating healthcare, treatments, services and support in the hopes of paving the road to balance for its clients. Specific programming makes this a viable option for female dual diagnosis sufferers with children.
