Treatment and Staff
SBLEC offers treatment on a phase system; which includes stabilization through detox, counseling, psychoeducation, as well as health resources and life skills training. The clientele is a mix of court-ordered and self-referred. The programs are individualized and aim to identify the root of the addiction. Throughout treatment, clients work closely with their counselor to design a goal-oriented plan with frequent drug screens and monitoring. Once the client and therapist decide that goals in the program have been achieved, they work towards a transition and aftercare plan.
Therapeutic approaches are broad and can include a multitude of modalities like CBT, EMDR, DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Treatment also incorporates the principles of 12-step recovery, directs clients to local AA/NA meetings and helps connect him or her with a sponsor.
