Shipowick-Smith offers outpatient treatment for substance abuse and co-occurring disorders to adults and adolescents in the apple capital of the world; Wenatchee, Washington. Its treatment philosophy is based on the recognition that addiction is a disease and abstinence is the best way to manage the condition. It utilizes 12-step philosophy in conjunction with solution-focused and science-based therapy.
The first step for those seeking help is an assessment. This takes place in the little gray craftsman Shipowick-Smith treatment house. The information gathered during this meeting determines which level of treatment a client needs. If residential services are required, they are referred out to another facility.
Shipowick-Smith runs two evidence-based programs—an Intensive Outpatient (IOP) and an outpatient program. Outpatient clients meet three times a week for group therapy for anywhere from six to 10 weeks. Two-hour sessions take place Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. The groups offered are addiction studies, battling self-image as well as self-harm, peer feedback, small group communication, grief, conflict resolution, relapse prevention and family group. The IOP program is similar in format, but meets five times a week for eight weeks. All IOP sessions are 90 minutes and facilitated by one of the therapists.
The Adolescent Program meets Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9 to 11 am. Shipowick-Smith implements something called the Why Try? program, which teaches adolescents how to navigate the journey from often troubled backgrounds into solid foundations for the future. It emphasizes the importance of education for young people as they overcome struggles with alcohol and drugs or issues in the juvenile justice system. Utilizing conflict resolution and mediation, adolescents are given tools to reverse the fight-or-flight syndrome often associated with addictive personalities.
Shipowick-Smith offers science-based, professional addiction treatment with a heart. It recognizes the importance of spirituality and community in continuing sobriety through 12-step involvement. Treatment plans for both adults and adolescents are individualized and well-researched, with specific attention paid to dual diagnosis clients. For those who are serious about getting help and willing to put in the effort to change their lives, this is a solid place to start.
