Cumberland County CommuniCare was founded in 1998 in Fayetteville, North Carolina, the home of Fort Bragg, a major Army base. The organization provides outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) to adult men and women.
Treatment and Staff
The intake process at Cumberland begins with an in-person assessment with one of the organization’s counselors. The incoming client fills out paperwork and discusses their substance abuse history. After this meeting the counselor determines the client’s level of need and prepares a treatment plan. If the client is in need of more intensive treatment, he or she is usually referred to an outside residential or detox program.
Cumberland’s primary curriculum is the IOP which lasts for three months and consists of both group and individual therapy. Group meetings are offered 8:30 am to 11:30 am, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Counselors in these meetings use a variety of treatment techniques including CBT, Matrix Model, aggressive replacement therapy as well as relationship and family skills. The groups vary in size and but usually consist of about 10 clients per group and are led by one counselor. The counselors also focus on the effects of drugs and alcohol on the human brain and what makes a brain healthy.
When clients leave the IOP, they have the option of enrolling in Cumberland’s relapse prevention program. This program lasts for six weeks and meets for group meetings twice a week. The group meetings focus largely on sharing and relapse prevention techniques to help keep the clients sober. Individual meetings are also available based on the needs of the clients.
Cumberland also facilitates individual family groups, but only after the client consents and asks for these meetings.
The facility has a number of outpatient adolescent programs including a juvenile assessment center, youth leadership development program and a program called Reclaiming Futures which focuses on developing systems in local communities to help at-risk youths.
Cumberland County CommuniCare offers an affordable option for adult men and women looking to get sober in the Fayetteville area. The relapse prevention program offers clients the opportunity to step down gradually from the IOP. The visiting doctor who provides clients with co-occurring disorders access to medical advice and treatment in the framework of a substance abuse program is an additional benefit.
