Treatment and Staff
The substance abuse programs begin with an intake assessment. The programs consist of two group therapy sessions a week and one individual session. Groups are in the evenings on Tuesdays and Thursdays and run for about two hours. They focus is on relapse prevention, coping skills, anger management and parenting. The substance abuse program is based on the 12-step philosophy and includes literature for younger clients and their families.
The adolescent program involves the family or a family member throughout treatment. Additionally, it includes a gang intervention and after school program, which is Monday through Friday afternoons and includes a healthy snack.
Depending on the severity of the addiction, this facility is also able to offer referral services to clients for resources that can provide shelter and medical care. Step Up Support Center’s programs treat clients with a primary diagnosis of substance abuse; as such, clients struggling with a dual diagnosis might consider seeking additional outside help.
Specialty programs include job training and placement, neighborhood support programs and mentoring programs. There is also a family program every Saturday. Additionally, The Step Up Support Center facilitates a homeless outreach project that provides transportation, a food and clothing pantry as well as psychoeducation and counseling for addiction.
The mission of The Step Up Support Center is to improve the lives of its clients and the community by providing much-needed services and educational programs. The treatment is supportive, 12-step-based and the staff can provide referrals to outside agencies if needed. Its neighborhood-focused programs aim to stop the cycle of substance abuse and addiction in those who are currently struggling with it and prevent it from developing in adolescents.
