Hal Nichols Associates of Overland Park and Leawood, Kansas was founded by Hal Nichols to provide confidential and caring outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) to adults and adolescents seeking treatment for substance abuse and dual diagnosis issues. Nichols is a recovering addict though he is also now certified as an LCSW and an LCAC and combines his credentials with his personal recovery experience to help others overcome their addiction issues.
Staff and Treatment
After an in-person assessment at the facility, clients receive tailored treatment plans of varying intensity and duration. Adult treatment is divided into levels, with IOP being the most intensive. This program consists of three group therapy sessions a week for a total of nine hours of treatment. The next step down level of intensity requires attendance of two group and one individual therapy session per week. The least intensive track, standard outpatient, consists of only one weekly group session for an hour. The facility does offer the opportunity to add more individual therapy sessions when necessary. Though treatment is individualized, it typically takes a few months to reach the recovery goals set by therapists. The adolescent substance abuse programs consist of group therapy twice a week in the evenings for an hour.
Group sessions are for the most part gender-specific allowing men and women to explore personal issues in a safe and peer-supported environment. All therapy is evidence-based and discussions include relapse prevention, coping skills, communication and grief counseling. The facility also provides educational lectures and workshops on anger management and the effects of drugs and alcohol on family and peers. The staff at HNA consists of between three to five LCSWs at a time at each location.
HNA also emphasizes the importance of family participation in the recovery process, providing family therapy both with the clients and exclusively for family members. Couples’ counseling and therapy for codependency are available as well as are adolescent workshops to address the impact of drug and alcohol use at an early age.
Hal Nichols Associates provides basic outpatient care incorporating a range of recovery-related topics. Though the program is relatively no-frills, the facility does offer care for both adults and adolescents, emphasizing family involvement as integral for lasting recovery. While those in need of more intensive or primary care may need to look elsewhere, Hal Nichols Associates remains a strong resource for those seeking affordable care in Kansas.
