A comprehensive treatment program can build the foundation that will support long term recovery by providing individuals with the tools, knowledge, and courage to work on living clean and sober.
This program is tailored to the person’s needs and includes meetings over an 8 to 12 week duration. The program also includes family support services, access to psychiatric evaluation with medication management, and social support services.
A therapist provides individual, family and group treatment typically once per week for a period of 8 to 12 weeks. Outpatient therapy is intended for those active in their recovery, stepping down from more intensive services and need ongoing treatment, as well as services to those in the co-dependent family and adult children of alcoholics.
These services are designed to assist the individual and treatment team with issues that might be derailing progress in treatment or those needs that cannot be addressed effectively in therapy services.
Peer support services assist individuals and families recovering from alcohol or drug problems. Services are provided by a Peer Recovery Coach who is someone who has been trained to provide peer services and who has gone through the journey of recovery themselves.
Early intervention services are a good first step. The services are intended to be short in duration and they are educational, informative and assist in helping the individual determine if more treatment is necessary.
