Texas Tech University’s Southwest Institute for Addictive Diseases (SWIAD) provides outpatient treatment to local residents on parole following release from incarceration. SWIAD is located on the University’s Lubbock campus in northwest Texas.
SWIAD has been in operation since the 1980s and has been offering outpatient services since 2005. Its mission is to provide care for individuals, couples and families with a focus on each client’s individual “biological, psychological, social and spiritual” needs.
Treatment and Staff
Clients are typically referred to the program by their parole officers, and most have completed inpatient and/or the Intensive Outpatient Program-level (IOP) of treatment while incarcerated. SWIAD typically offers treatment at the standard outpatient level, with group therapy once or twice a week and individual therapy as-needed. On occasion, clients attend groups and individual therapy more frequently.
After a full biopsychosocial assessment, clients are given their treatment plan with a designated number of required group and individual sessions. Most treatment plans last six to nine months. Groups are co-ed and usually have no more than 12 participants. Therapy uses CBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI) and addresses both criminal thinking and relapse prevention. Clients are encouraged to attend 12-step or other peer support meetings outside of treatment.
The treatment team includes Master’s-level therapists including LMFTs, LPCs and LCDCs. Clients with co-occurring disorders can receive dual diagnosis support in the campus’ Department of Psychiatry, which houses the SWIAD.
Family therapy is available if the client and treatment team think it would be beneficial. While SWIAD offers some case management services, most clients access those through their parole officer.
