Treatment and Staff
Before beginning treatment, each client must undergo an initial evaluation to determine an appropriate level of care. Treatment programs are both evidence-based and client-centered, with support for co-occurring disorders available through therapy. Detox and residential care are not provided.
IOP offers the highest level of care. While schedules may vary from client to client, treatment includes a mixture of individual and group therapy, as well as education. Group therapy is offered several times per week for an hour and half per session. Topics include relapse prevention, processing, coping skills and communication. Individual therapy usually occurs once a week. Educational sessions are also available to discuss the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Evidence-based therapies like CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI) are used frequently.
Individual therapy can also be elected as its own form of treatment. With the help of a counselor, clients address the underlying causes beneath their substance abuse issues. Topics such as coping skills and relapse prevention are covered, as well as mental health when necessary. The 12 steps are not required at this facility though they can be discussed upon request. Family and couples therapy is also available for an hour per session, focusing on communication and setting healthy boundaries. The treatment team consists of Master’s-level clinicians and LADCs. Group sizes never exceed 15 clients at a time.
All services at Key to Life Counseling Center are also available in Spanish. DUI therapy and education are provided as well and include regular urinalysis tests.
