Treatment and Staff
The primary focus at Our Place is on early intervention services for kids, adults and families who are facing problems with alcohol, drugs and tobacco. The 10-session program meets weekly from 7 to 8:30 pm on Mondays (children and families) and Tuesdays (adolescents and adults, including those who are court-ordered). These sessions are made up of group discussion, worksheets, videos and other related activities. The adult group meets twice a week for three and a half hours total and the adolescent group meets three times a week for a total of five and a half hours.
The Journey program, the outpatient program for adolescents and adults, provides treatment based on Hazelden’s Matrix Model. All therapy is evidence-based, utilizing CBT and DBT and is primarily comprised of group therapy, though individual therapy can be scheduled as needed. AA/NA meetings are encouraged though not required.
In addition to outpatient treatment, Our Place provides independent substance abuse assessments, which include a written history of abuse, a mental health check-in and a urinalysis test. The fee for this service is waived if the client goes onto enroll in the outpatient or early intervention program. Independent drug testing is also available.
Our Place also offers Afterschool ROCKS, a program for fourth graders in Floyd county. The eight-week track focuses on substance abuse and violence prevention education. Footprints for Life is a similar curriculum designed for second and third graders. It features real-life situations demonstrated via puppet storytelling and aims to educate children about drugs and alcohol. This program can be arranged in any private or public school in Floyd, Clark, Harrison, Scott or Washington county.
The New Beginnings program works with the parents of children involved in traumatic events such as divorce or separation. The program consists of weekly two-hour group sessions for 10 weeks (with one individual session after the third week) and is led by two Master’s-level therapists. Mothers and fathers can enroll in this program separately, if needed.
Our Place also provides training for local businesses and employers about drug and alcohol abuse and can organize educational presentations in the community. Tobacco cessation programs are also available.
