Treatment and Staff
View Point Health offers a variety of services, including detox, residential, transitional living and outpatient care. Medically monitored detox takes place at the Charles L. Knight Crisis Stabilization Unit in Lawrenceville, taking anywhere from three to seven days to complete.
The Gran Recovery Center is an extended residential program, treating adults ages 18 and above. Length of stay is typically 90 days or more. The program uses a mix of group therapy, individual therapy, education and 12-step meetings to rehabilitate clients. Group topics include relapse prevention, life skills and anger management. Individual counseling sessions occur once a week with the client’s primary counselor. Residents are required to attend several off-site AA/NA meeting per week. Prior to discharge, an individualized aftercare plan is created.
The transitional living program offers a home-like setting with a sober environment. Clients leave during the day to attend work or school, returning home in the evenings for group therapy and 12-step meetings. The length of time spent in this program is usually six months or longer.
The adult outpatient services are for those who have completed residential or need something less intensive then inpatient. An assessment determines the goals of the client and the length of time needed in treatment. Services may include individual, group and family therapy. There is an emphasis on relapse prevention, as well as emotional regulation, relationship skills, problem solving and symptom management.
When it comes to treating adolescents, The Clubhouse offers community-based, family-centered outpatient services. Individualized treatment plans are designed for each client, typically including a mixture of group, individual and family therapy. Services are offered during the day and in the evenings, using evidence-based therapies such as CBT and DBT. The length and intensity of treatment depends on the client’s needs. This program works closely with the juvenile courts, the state Division of Family and Children Services, schools and family members.
The staff at the various facilities includes case managers, house managers, doctors, nurses and CSACs.
View Point Health uses a comprehensive, therapy-based approach to addiction treatment. The residential program provides 24-hour support, while the outpatient services help clients as they re-enter everyday life.
