Treatment and Staff
The NAIA Chemical Dependency Program offers comprehensive assessments for clients at intake. This is a very small program that offers an “old school” counseling model of treatment. They deal with a client’s chemical addiction above all else, as opposed to first addressing the client’s underlying behavioral or emotional issues. The NAIA outpatient program does not include therapeutic modalities like CBT or DBT, which explore and are meant to rewire unhealthy emotional and behavioral patterns. Instead, counselors interact with clients during individual counseling sessions at least once a week and focus on the practical—work, interpersonal relationships and developing parenting skills. Clients are encouraged to attend 12-step meetings for additional support, though it is not required to complete the program.
The staff includes a health coordinator CADCs and volunteers.
NAIA provides aftercare services for clients who have been through its outpatient program. Counseling is also available for outside issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder, partner violence and domestic violence.
Services are available for the hearing-impaired.
