Treatment and Staff
PFP provides emergency services including interventions, suicide prevention, involuntary 72-hour holds, substance use evaluations and assessments. There are no detox services available at the Lamar facility, though staff can refer clients to the Wellness Works program. After a pharmacological screening, Vivitrol injections can be administered by nurse practitioners for those who need them.
Counselors work with clients on individual assessments to determine the course of treatment, though, generally, clients participate in regular 90-minute group therapy sessions, educational groups lasting 30 minutes to an hour and individual counseling once a week. Outpatient treatment varies in length, typically lasting three to six months. There are specialty gender-specific groups, each of them hosting five to 12 clients at a time. The minimum requirement for the outpatient program is one individual and one group session per week.
The facility does not offer 12-step based treatment programs. The primary type of therapy offered is CBT and counselors also use Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), a relatively new form of CBT used for people with criminal and other negative behavioral patterns.
The on-site staff includes two LPNs, Master’s-level counselors and CADCs. Dual diagnosis support is available—PFP has psychiatrists contracted to visit clients on an as-needed basis. Overall, there are 100 staff members who work with the South East Health Group.
Drug and alcohol screening tests are available, including urine, breath and hair follicle testing. Language services are available for Spanish-speaking clients.
The South East Health Group offers three facilities that span rural Colorado, with Partnership for Progress the main option for substance abuse treatment. Though 12-step is not available, the facility offers a range of therapies to help clients, all with flexible scheduling. Those in need of a broad range of services at affordable prices should find Partnership for Progress a good fit.
