Treatment and Staff
Clients seeking substance abuse treatment may choose from either the day or evening program. Groups are scheduled during the day between 9 am and 12:30 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and in the evenings between 5 and 8:20 pm on the same days. Both tracks typically consist of daily psycho-educational group therapy, an individual therapy session, a skill building group, education and sometimes family therapy.
All sessions implement CBT and DBT methodology and the 12-steps are also integrated into treatment with AA/NA meetings hosted on-site. Random urine drug screening tests are also administered throughout treatment. Case management services ensure progress is being made by each client and helps to determine the duration of treatment and whether changes or adjustments in treatment need to be made to suit their recovery needs.
Pharmaceutical interventions are also available for those who need MAT in the form of Naltrexone, Methadone and Suboxone. Aftercare planning is also available, as are referrals to other programs that may offer further support treatment as-needed.
