For more than 15 years, Family Counseling Center for Recovery (FCCR) has provided substance abuse treatment for adolescents and adults. With three locations in and around Richmond, Virginia, FCCR offers a wide range of outpatient services. Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) programs assist with opiate withdrawal and detox, while an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) helps clients recover from addiction. Other offerings include a variety of counseling options for individuals and families, as well as access to community services.
Treatment and Staff
Clients receive a comprehensive assessment which informs their individualized treatment plans. Abstinence is required, with random drug tests performed on everyone in treatment. For those needing opiate detox, it can be conducted on an outpatient basis using Methadone or Suboxone. Clients must attend treatment for six hours a day, every day until detox is complete—typically between three and 14 days. Medical staff monitors them closely throughout this time, while also linking to nearby inpatient services should higher-level care be needed. For those seeking MAT, staff specializing in opiate addiction provides daily physical evaluations, as well as auricular acupuncture to assist with withdrawal.
Clients addicted to prescription medications or dealing with chronic pain can also access services, with specialized groups available. Most clients will attend a mix of sessions that target their area of need, while tackling personal issues in individual sessions. A psychiatrist specializing in addictions performs evaluation, identifying those struggling with co-occurring disorders. These clients receive medication management as well as regular screenings.
The adult IOP is suitable for clients over 18 who have a history of, or are at a high risk for, relapse. Those in MAT or detox are also eligible. The program has two phases, the first comprised of 24 three-hour sessions over eight weeks, while the second meets once a week for 12 weeks. Morning and evening options are available. Treatment is made up of individual and group therapy. Clients learn stress and anger management, communication skills and relapse prevention, while spirituality is introduced through the 12 steps and attendance at meetings is required.
For adolescents, the IOP is even more structured and requires active family participation where relevant. Teens that don’t meet the diagnostic criteria for substance abuse are referred to the Early Intervention Program, which consists of family and individual counseling, along with education sessions aimed at halting the progress of dysfunctional behavior. Assistance creating formal intervention plans is also offered. An adolescent psychiatrist monitors teens as they progress through the two-phase program.
Phase one meets for three hours after school, three days a week, for eight weeks. Group and individual sessions provide insight into the causes of substance abuse, as well as developing social and emotional skills needed to maintain recovery. One day each week is dedicated to multi-family group time, where communication skills can be practiced and relationships can be repaired. Assignments must be completed to progress to the next level. Phase two requires weekly attendance for 12 weeks, focusing especially on relapse prevention, relationships and how to enjoy life without substances.
The staff of Family Counseling Center for Recovery is comprised of three medical doctors, several nurse practitioners and registered nurses, along with CSACs and LCSWs who facilitate therapy sessions.
Families and loved ones are encouraged to participate in all phases of treatment, learning about the nature of substance abuse and how to develop healthy support systems. Family and multi-family therapy occurs weekly.
All clients receive aftercare plans that include groups, consultations with schools or courts and referrals to additional services.
Though offering strong and structured services for all, clients seeking affordable detox and MAT will find the targeted programs at Family Counseling Center for Recovery especially useful. The focus on family involvement also ensures clients build a supportive environment after completing treatment. Fees vary according to services.
