Treatment and Staff
Life Options has three primary goals for each client’s recovery experience; to assist in healthy decision making, restore the family unit and to help the community grow through each individual’s recovery. Prior to admission, all clients are evaluated by licensed clinicians with a bio-psycho-social assessment which ensures that clients receive proper care for their mental health concerns. There is never a waiting list to enroll in the program and individuals in need are treated as soon as they are accepted.
Treatment plans are individualized and flexible to accommodate work and school schedules, as well as the family’s ability to participate. All programs are based on a sliding scale fee allowing clients to pay based on their income.
Adolescents and those who are early in their active addiction are enrolled in the Early Intervention Services program. Treatment explores the risks of substance use and utilizes a psychoeducational approach. Group and individual therapy sessions enable clients to form a bond with similar clientele and to develop a fellowship in recovery. The program’s duration varies according to a client’s needs and risk level. Typically clients attend therapy once or twice a week to address their harmful behavior and the consequences of drug use.
The outpatient treatment program is designed for clients who show severe symptoms of addiction. Lifestyle choices, attitudes and behavioral issues are addressed on a group and individual level with LPCs and CSACs. Counselors work with clients to develop healthy coping habits and skills to handle tasks without the use of alcohol and drugs.
In general, all tracks use an evidence-based approach including CBT and DBT. All groups are solution-based and strength-focused to empower the clients. Motivational Interviewing (MI) techniques are also used to help facilitate a positive and motivating experience during treatment.
Referral services are provided at no additional charge including references to local 12-step meetings and sober living environments. Clients are regularly drug tested at random to ensure abstinence and are at extra cost. Spanish speaking groups are available for individuals who feel more comfortable speaking in their first language.
Clients may also choose to enroll in anger management classes and attend educational workshops during the course of treatment, both offered in a group setting enabling clients to develop skills for reducing reactionary feelings and to develop healthy relationships. Workshops and seminars include essential life skills like problem solving as well as transitioning assistance from treatment and back to regular life.
The Life Options Counseling Services is an ideal facility for individuals at the beginning of their first treatment experience. The staff specialize in treating individuals who are ambivalent towards recovery. Psychoeducation groups, anger management classes and evidence-based therapies create a wide range of treatment options. Low- and moderate-risk clients can receive intervention and enroll in a motivating program tailored to their needs and lifestyles.
