Treatment and Staff
The ASAP offers evidence-based treatment practices to help guide clients through a structured and highly informed method of care. Prior to admittance, all clients are carefully screened with a bio-psycho-social assessment that determines their needs and care requirements. If a client is in need of an ambulatory detox prior to enrollment, they are admitted to the hospital and overseen by medical staff. Client addicted to opiates start replacement therapy drug and are given access to specialized therapeutic approaches.
The Newstart program is a three-month track requiring clients to attend two hours of treatment activities weekly for 12 weeks in total. Both men and women are admitted, with gender specific activities available for women. While the primary modality is group therapy utilizing CBT methods, clients are encouraged to schedule individual therapy with their primary counselor. The women’s-only group focuses on the specific issues women face in recovery, providing a safe space to process emotions and concerns. Some clients may be encouraged to attend 12-step meetings to support their recovery process.
Clients enrolled in the MAT program are seen by medical staff as well as by CACs. Case managers are available to help access outside support resources including housing and vocational assistance. Dual diagnosis support is available through specialized groups, medication under the supervision of a Psychiatrist and individualized treatment planning.
Special family programs are available for adolescent clients that are enrolled in ASAP. Family members are able to attend psychoeducational groups that inform them about addiction and the role it is playing in their lives. ASAP also offers a primary medical clinic so that clients can receive medical care.
