Treatment and Staff
Group therapy uses several evidence-based modalities, including Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), DBT and CBT. Therapy groups usually number eight or fewer participants, allowing the counselor to address topics responsive to specific issues clients are dealing with in the present moment, such as relationship skills, anger management and criminal thinking.
Clients work with a Licensed Addictions Counselor (LAC) who is in the process of receiving a Master’s degree in counseling. Clients with co-occurring disorders receive referrals to an outside therapist who offers low- and no-cost therapy to clients of IFHC.
While IFHC doesn’t require clients to attend outside 12-step meetings, they are strongly encouraged. At times, it also offers Medicine Wheel meetings, the 12-step model adapted to Native American cultural traditions.
After completing of the outpatient program, clients can attend IFHC’s weekly continuing care group for aftercare. IFHC also has two nurse practitioners who provide primary care services and referrals are available for other low-cost community medical services. Additionally, IFHC has an on-site fitness center with low-cost monthly memberships.
