Levels Of Care

Outpatient: Outpatient Programs (OP) are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare. Intensive Outpatient: In this program, the client receives 9 or more hours of counseling each week, mostly conducted in a group setting. The group process allows clients the opportunity to offer each other support, share common experiences and identify strategies that have been successful for them. This will allow them to challenge each other’s behaviors and cognitions. It is designed to manage, reduce or resolve identified behavior problems. A client will learn ways to function more independently and competently in their daily life. Inpatient: Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. The Residential Treatment Center serves women who are currently in the substance abuse treatment process or who have been through the treatment processes and are transitioning back into the community. It is a ten bed social setting facility.

Clinical Services

Couples Therapy: Whether a marriage or other committed relationship, an intimate partnership is one of the most important aspects of a person\'s life. Drug and alcohol addiction affects both members of a couple in deep and meaningful ways, as does rehab and recovery. Couples therapy and other couples-focused treatment programs are significant parts of exploring triggers of addiction, as well as learning how to build healthy patterns to support ongoing sobriety. Family Therapy: Chemically dependent families have a unique system that seeks to provide stability in spite of drug usage. Understanding the family system, its roles, rules, and structure allows participants to understand how their addiction has affected their loved ones. It will help everyone recognize and understand the changes within the family as everyone adapts. Group interaction with family participation can develop an understanding that chemical dependency of any member of the family, indicates family pain and is not solely experienced by the chemically dependent person. Group Therapy: Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members. Individual Therapy: Individual Therapy is a planned face-to-face intervention that is often useful in assisting the client in improving their emotional and behavioral functioning. Client’s unique stressors are often generational in nature and immensely extensive and affect their families as well as themselves. Individual therapy can enhance the client’s capacity to identify maladaptive behaviors and cognitions allowing them to identify more appropriate alternatives. They will learn to utilize new strategies to make beneficial lasting lifestyle changes which help to promote more adaptive behaviors. Life Skills: The purpose of the Psychosocial Rehabilitative Services (Life Skills) face-to-face service is to assist the client in the restoration or strengthening of skills needed to promote and sustain independence and stability in their living, learning, social and work environments. Trauma Therapy: Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client\'s past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.


Alcoholism: The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings. Dual Diagnosis: Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person\'s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Opioid Addiction: Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction. Substance Abuse: Substance rehabs focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.
