**Additional Information about the Group:**
We are highly committed to engage and retain individuals in
services while employing strategies to assist in understanding
substance use disorders and mental health issues as chronic
diseases. Services are non- confrontational and built on
establishing a relationship with mutual respect and dignity. We
recognize that individuals have different needs and varying degrees
of commitment to treatment services. As such, our programs offer a
unique open access program that provides flexibility to meet
individual treatment needs.
Outpatient Medication Assisted Treatment:
Individuals who want to stop their illicit drug use can find it
very difficult. Their need to satisfy cravings or avoid withdrawal
can be so intense that they feel desperate and overwhelmed. At the
right dose, and with psychosocial intervention (e.g., counseling),
medication assisted treatment can suppress cravings and opioid
withdrawal symptoms to help individuals stay in treatment and avoid
illicit opioid use.
The group currently offers two forms of medication assisted
treatment for opioid dependence: (1) methadone and (2)
buprenorphine (Suboxone). These longer-acting opiate medications
work by stabilizing the brain chemistry, preventing withdrawal, and
reducing cravings. When properly prescribed and taken, people do
not experience a high from these medications. For people with
severe opioid dependence, these medications may be prescribed for a
period of years to help stabilize the person while they make
changes in other life areas.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP):
Intensive treatment is often recommended for both individuals who
are new to treatment as well as established clients who are
struggling with relapse or an increase in symptoms. This level of
service involves attending treatment for a minimum of nine hours
per week three clinical contacts per day (group, individual
counseling session, psychiatric consult) over 3 days per week. This
level of service is based on treatment needs and is generally only
indicated for several weeks, followed by outpatient treatment for
Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment:
Group therapy is the primary form of outpatient treatment. Group
programming schedules are developed weekly to address the changing
needs of our clients.
Outpatient Mental Health Treatment:
Psychiatric services are available on-site on an as-needed basis.
Clients are seen for individual psychotherapy by a psychiatrist,
psychologist or licensed clinician.
Therapy emphasizes individualized treatment planning, long and
short term goal setting, couples/family therapy, and crisis
intervention. Clients with psychiatric conditions that may benefit
from medications are treated by the Medical Director and/or staff
