Who Needs Substance Abuse Treatment? Sometimes people come into treatment before they are addicted. They may have had a run in with the police, had some problems at home or work that was related to their use of alcohol or some other drug. This is generally considered substance abuse or using too much, too often and/or in an inappropriate way that then caused problems. Substance abuse treatment for abusers is usually a matter of looking at attitude, personal issues and social contacts. Treatment is generally short and a matter of making minor life changes.

When someone is addicted to a substance, it is their “way of life”. Addiction or dependence is when the person depends on a drug to change the way they feel, change their experience of life. They “need” the substance, either physically and/or psychologically. Treatment for someone who is addicted is focused on creating a new “way of life”. A life of recovery brings a return of self-respect, an ability to choose, to experience real pleasure, peace and freedom. Substance abuse treatment is a process or journey to get your life back.

What Substance Abuse Services Do We Provide?

Assessments: The first appointment is an assessment, the first step in your recovery journey. It is the time to look at where you are, talk about what is going on and what brought you into treatment. The assessment helps us understand the nature and extent of the issues that brought you into treatment and what we can do to help. It is also a time to provide you with information on other resources and services available to you.


Treatment Planning: The second step is to make a recovery plan. We use a Person Centered Planning approach that focuses on what you want to change and not what we think you ought to change. You decide what your treatment goals are or what things in your life you want help in changing. Everybody’s road to recovery looks a little different; we are there to help you make your plan for a better life.


Intensive Outpatient:  Sometimes in the beginning of treatment, you may need extra support and help.  Intensive Outpatient Services provides you with 9 hours of treatment per week so that you can begin recovery while at home, yet have intensive individual and group therapy to get you started on the road to recovery.


Individual Therapy: Everybody has a story. In individual therapy you have the opportunity to tell your story. The counselor will help you make sense of your story, past events, and assist you in making the changes you said you wanted to make in your treatment plan. This is the time and place where you can rewrite your substance abuse story, get your life back, and write your recovery life story!


Group Therapy: Having a solid support system for your recovery journey is essential. Group therapy is the place where you share stories; you listen to how others are making their way, and you can tell others what you have learned. The counselor will present important topics to discuss. We have both morning and evening groups. Group is a place where you will find you are not alone in recovery!


Women’s Specialty Services:  We are committed to empowering women through healing the past, helping to change current unhealthy behaviors to create a safe and positive life for the future.  Pregnant women, women with children and those involved in the child welfare system are a priority for admission to treatment services.


Family Therapy: People who have a substance abuse problem have families or relatives that often play a significant role in their addiction. Family therapy is a place to discuss what part each person plays and what has to change so everyone is happier and healthier. People don’t get to where they are alone; family can be one of the best recovery support systems available to someone in recovery.


Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications for the treatment of substance use disorders. MAT is primarily used for the treatment of addiction to opioids such as heroin and prescription pain relievers that contain opiates.
