Treatment and Staff
After an initial diagnostic evaluation and assessment, an individualized treatment plan is developed. Individual, group and family therapy based in CBT and DBT methodology are offered. Individual and family sessions are scheduled by the client depending on their personal needs, and group counseling is offered several times throughout the week. Both daytime and evening groups are available to accommodate those who work or go to school during the day.
Counselors do not require the client to attend a certain number of sessions, but instead help clients tweak their attendance levels as they progress through the program. There is also not set length; it’s entirely dependent on when the individual and counselor agree a certain level of stability has been reached. The 12 steps are not integrated into the program, but clients are strongly encouraged to attend AA/NA meetings in their community. FSGNO does not offer dual diagnosis support, but will provide referrals to better equipped facilities if necessary.
In addition to the comprehensive substance abuse treatment program, FSGNO also offers anger management, community-based counseling, a court-approved diversion program, parenting classes, domestic violence interventions and workshops that teach healthy relationship building. All services are provided on a sliding fee scale.
The outpatient substance abuse treatment program at Family Service of Greater New Orleans is an excellent, affordable option for those seeking individual and group CBT geared toward addiction and alcoholism, in a structured, safe setting.
