Treatment and Staff
Treatment begins with an intake process, during which clients complete an assessment and begin to develop an individualized treatment plan. All participants are then matched with a primary counselor who they meet with on an individual basis. Individual counseling is typically scheduled on a weekly basis for an hour at a time. There is no medication management available on-site though referrals can be provided upon request.
The duration of treatment and frequency of group therapy sessions varies from client to client with sessions generally provided Monday through Friday for two hours. Groups meet on Monday and Tuesday at 5:30 pm and on Wednesday at 5 pm. On Thursday there is a female group held at 3 pm and a co-ed group at 5 pm. Friday group therapy schedules vary from week to week. In the female group, counselors use art therapy to help participants process their emotions. Other groups apply CBT, DBT and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) when discussing topics such as relapse prevention, anger management, recovery and change, life skills and stress.
Staff members include CADCs, counselors with at least a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and an MD with a PhD in psychology.
