Treatment and Staff
Upon intake, clients meet with staff to develop an individualized treatment plan that fits within the multicultural and communal environment of facility, which focuses on the latin community. Treatment is comprised of group therapy, using evidence-based practices such as CBT, addressing topics such as anger management, relapse prevention, self-esteem, life skills, financial management, addictive thinking, codependency and HIV education. Individual therapy can be added as needed. Though not required, participation in local 12-step groups is encouraged. The staff of The Latino Commission outpatient substance abuse program consists of LMFTs and RNs.
