- Substance Abuse Treatment
Our goal is to treat chemically dependent people by helping them to acknowledge, accept and understand their relationship with the disease, to enhance their self-image, and to assist them in returning to a substance abuse-free life.
Our counselors are trained in evidenced-based practices that include Motivational Interviewing, Relapse Prevention Therapy, Motivational Enhancement Therapy, Seven Challenges and the Matrix Model. These approaches are effective in helping people regain control of their lives.
Priority admissions include: pregnant and parenting women, injection drug users, individuals with HIV/AIDS, and individuals with tuberculosis. Admission to the program begins with a health screening followed by a comprehensive assessment of biological, psychological and social needs. Following the assessment, the client meets with a counselor to develop a treatment plan to address the needs identified.
