Treatment and Staff
After an assessment, clients work with a counselor to create a treatment plan involving group therapy once a week and individual therapy as needed, usually at least once a week. Group therapy meets Wednesdays and addresses education and coping skills such as relapse prevention and handling triggers. Individual therapy uses Motivational Interviewing (MI) and CBT among other modalities. The length of stay in the outpatient program is progress-based and clients may continue for up to a year. While 12-step meetings are not a requirement of the program, they are strongly encouraged and staff can provide a list of local meetings. Many outpatient clients attend nearby Discover Hope, a faith-based sober support program.
The treatment team at ITS includes CADCs, Licensed Masters Social Workers (LMSWs), MSWs, International Advanced Alcohol Drug Counselors (IAADCs) and Certified Drug Counselors (CDCs). ITS also has a psychologist on-staff who specializes in trauma-recovery and two of the addiction counselors at ITS are in recovery themselves and are accessible to clients to provide peer support and coaching.
ITS has launched a program with the local YMCA in which all of clients in treatment are given a complimentary YMCA membership to aid in building healthy lifestyle habits.
The well-credentialed staff at Integrated Treatment Services tailors individual therapy sessions to each client’s needs, including trauma recovery and culture-specific problem-solving. Clients participate in group therapy for up to a year, ensuring long-term, results-oriented support. Integrated Treatment Services, LLC is likely a strong choice for those whose recovery would best benefit from customized one-on-one treatment.
