Treatment and Staff
Outpatient services are reserved for adults who do not require detox services. All clients are bio-psycho-socially assessed by an intake coordinator and must bring current proof of their financial status in order to determine cost on a sliding scale. Once enrolled, clients meet with their primary counselor to develop an individualized treatment plan.
EBH offers clients dual-diagnosis support and assistance with co-occurring disorders. Treatment may include working with psychiatrists, nurses, employment and housing specialists and community support professionals. EBH works with their clients to ensure their transition from treatment to discharge sets them up for success and long-term recovery.
The adult outpatient program is 16 weeks in duration with sessions held Mondays and Thursdays three times daily to accommodate work and life schedules.
