2. Relapse Prevention.


Relapse is the recurrence of a prior condition, usually representing a negative connotation such as the return of an illness after a period of improvement, or also, in the context of substance abuse, the re-initiation of drug seeking behaviors and the resumption of use after a period of abstinence.  The Relapse Prevention Program is an added support for clients that may be struggling with challenges on the road to recovery.

3. Thinking for a Change.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a widely used talking therapy that helps people overcome a variety of mental health and substance use disorders. In CBT, individuals work with counselors to identify patterns of thoughts and beliefs that lead to unwanted behaviors, such as substance abuse.  This form of counseling helps individuals to gain a better understanding of why they are doing what they are doing and provides insight to change.

4. Psychiatric Evaluation.

Upon the completion of the assessment process, clients determined to be in need of a substance abuse psychiatric evaluation schedule an appointment with the Medical Director for the evaluation. At the conclusion of the evaluation the Medical Director in conjunction with the Primary Counselor and Clinical Director determine the next course of treatment.

The Medically Assisted Treatment Services includes medication, group and individual counseling with toxicology monitoring and medication management by the Medical Director. No one is accepted in the program without a counseling treatment plan commitment.  Clients also need to know that there are no Opioids or Benzodiazepines prescribed.
