Treatment and Staff
Substance abuse treatment is offered at the standard outpatient level of care, with clients attending group therapy once or twice each week and individual therapy as-needed. The length of treatment plans vary, per the addiction and clients’ needs and goals. MAT clients attend therapy as long as they’re receiving medication, while non-opioid replacement clients may complete their treatment plans in a few months.

Clinicians are experienced in treating co-occurring disorders and clients can receive medication management for mental health diagnoses. Therapy uses CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI) and groups usually have 10 to 12 participants. Group topics include Coping Skills, Addiction Education and Recovery Toolbox.
