Treatment and Staff
The substance abuse program at Genesis New Beginning is very small, with only 25 men and women participating at any given time. Every client, regardless of their treatment plan, has an individualized team of clinicians. This team consists of a psychiatric provider, nurse, medical doctor, licensed therapist and case manager.
Treatment at Genesis New Beginning is very flexible. There is walk-in availability, along with evening and weekend appointments. Because it’s a relatively new practice, most clients only experience a five minute wait for appointments.
The detox program is a take-home treatment. As a result, it includes a number of medications, both prescribed and over the counter. Genesis generally only recommends this for clients who are stable enough to not require an in-patient stay. Take home medications are Suboxone and Methadone for opioid withdrawal management, and Naltrexone for alcohol. Clients call the medical staff during their detox if any questions or concerns arise.
The substance abuse track is basically an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). There are three blocks of time, five days a week for clients in the IOP. They break down into three hour time slots, 9 am to 12 pm, 12 to 3 pm and 6 to 9 pm. Half this time is spent focusing in addiction education, and the other is for mental health. Once a week these groups shift topics to address the physical ramifications of long term substance abuse, STD education and other prevalent issues.
Genesis New Beginning employs Master’s-level therapists, LCSWs, psychiatrists, psychologists, and family nurse practitioners.
In addition to the addiction program, Genesis New Beginning also has plans for clients with eating disorders, and specific tracks for veterans and members of the LGBTQ community. Eating disorder clients attend group therapy three times per week and a nutritional evaluation at the onset of treatment. Other specialty services also provide group and individual therapy, case management, medications if needed and ongoing assessments.
Though Genesis New Beginning is a new facility, it operates as if it’s been around for many years. The staff is highly qualified and treats clientele respectfully and comprehensively. This is an ideal situation for those who are not yet in a place where they need to be checked into a hospital for treatment, but are definitely at a point where they need help.
