What Is Treatment

Treatment provides a safe therapeutic space for individuals to address substance abuse and mental health disorders in a structured environment with the help of trained, certified and licensed professionals.

Depending on the treatment setting and amount of support needed, the treatment episode may include BioPyschoSocial Assessment, Physical and Mental Stabilization with Psychiatric/Medical care, Medication Evaluation and Management, Creation of a Treatment Plan, Individual Therapy, Group Therapies, Psycho-Education, Behavioral Therapies, Emotional Support, Peer Support, Skill Building and Case Management.

These are provided by an interdisciplinary team of professionals, known as a Treatment Team. A Treatment Team is a group of healthcare professionals who work together towards the common goal of the client.

Prior to engaging in any form on treatment, individuals must first partake in a thorough psychosocial assessment. During these assessments, an individual’s history is reviewed, including presenting symptoms and the way in which those symptoms have impacted his or her ability to function on a daily basis. Additionally, one’s physical and psychological background, treatment history and substance use history will be reviewed in order to obtain a more detailed understanding of client needs. Once this assessment is reviewed by clinical staff, will then determine what the most appropriate level of care will be in order for the individual’s needs to be met and the client to stay safe and sober.

Treatment Options:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse is clinically referred to as Substance Use Disorders (SUD), is a complex problem affecting thousands of lives. Substance use disorder is an illness that can affect anyone: rich or poor, employed or unemployed, young or old, and any gender, race or ethnicity. In 2017 alone, there were over 70,000 drug overdose death reported to the CDC.

Dual Diagnosis

Dual Diagnosis, also known as Co-Occurring Disorder, refers to an individual suffering from both SUD and Mental Health issues. When a mental health problem goes untreated, the substance abuse problem usually gets worse. And when alcohol or drug abuse increases, mental health problems usually increase too.

Levels of Care:

A treatment facility has 5 “categories” or Levels of Care in which services can be provided. In order to determine the right level of care best suited, an assessment must be completed. These can typically be done over the phone, but may require in person assessment. This assessment will allow us to understand more about you, why you are currently seeking treatment and what your needs are. Once this assessment is complete, we can better guide you to the appropriate level of care for your individual needs.


Detox is usually the first step to recovery when it is medically indicated. Choosing a medically supervised detox can offer the support and comfort needed to ensure a safe and successful experience of removing addictive substances from the body and providing basic medical/psychological stabilization.

Residential Treatment

Residential Treatment takes place in a home-like setting. A team of clinicians will work with you in a residential setting to determine your plan for treatment based on your presenting needs and conditions.  The primary focus will be addressing any underlying causes of alcohol and drug addiction, continuing basic stabilization and beginning to maintain sustained recovery while in intensive treatment.

Partial Hospitalization Programming

Partial Hospitalization Programming (PHP) is a nonresidential treatment program that provides diagnostic and treatment services on a level of intensity similar to an inpatient program but without 24-hour care.

Intensive Outpatient Programming

Intensive Outpatient Programming (IOP) is a part-time, yet strict, treatment program designed to accommodate work and daily life with your recovery.

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient programs (OP) offers the ability to transition back to (or maintain) their everyday life with the safety net of weekly therapeutic counseling and support.

Supportive Housing

Supportive Housing (also known as Sober Living or Halfway houses) are supportive group housing for alcoholics and addicts in recovery. People who live in these types of facilities are expected to be responsible for themselves and abide by sober living rules. Clients must stay clean and sober and abstain from the use of any alcohol, drugs or other mind-altering substances while residing in a sober living environment.
