Alcohol and Chemical Dependency Services

Phone: 1-888-626-2111

Overview

Our Alcohol and Chemical Dependency (ACDS) program is rooted in our team philosophy: Fighting addiction, saving lives, and healing families. We know that treatment and recovery is a journey and each member of the ACDS team has made the long-term commitment of helping their clients reach their recovery goals. When an individual joins our program, he or she is joining a family that is dedicated to supporting and strengthening every person that enters our program.

Our Team

Our staff of licensed clinical alcohol and drug counselors (LCADC), masters-level clinicians, and social workers who specialize in substance abuse treatment and co-occurring disorders, understand there is no single-approach or one-size-fits all timeline for treatment. We work collaboratively with board-certified psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed and registered nurses, and advanced practice nurses to develop a customized recovery program that best suits each person’s needs, schedule, and lifestyle.

Our Approach

Client care begins at initial assessment and is directed as a team effort between the client and our team. Our assessment allows us to identify the appropriate level of care for each client and match each person with the program that best suits his or her needs.

In addition to unsurpassed treatment and support, our program also offers the following benefits:

  • Transportation available until 4pm
  • APN on staff daily for medication needs
  • Mental health counseling for aftercare
  • Evening hours to accommodate work
  • Family support services and resources available

Our Programs

This service is an outpatient treatment program providing individualized and specialized services for substance abuse disorders and concurrent mental illness. It is intended to meet the needs of the individual patient, varying in degree of intensity they offer. With four different programs, we have the flexibility to place patients in the appropriate level of care according to their clinical needs, and move them easily from one level to another as they progress in their treatment. Some patients may be placed directly in the outpatient program from the onset of treatment, others may “step-down” from a more intensive program. These services are provided by a multidisciplinary team of Master’s prepared clinicians.

  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

    Patients attend the IOP program for three hours a day for up to five days a week. Group therapy is the primary form of treatment. Each patient is assessed to determine their specific psychiatric, social and activity needs, with special attention paid to the levels of alcohol and/or drug use. Staff conducts an initial assessment of patients, and services are modified to provide both treatment and education about substance abuse. The assessment is also used to develop a customized treatment plan.

  • Traditional Outpatient Program

    Our traditional outpatient services include relapse prevention, group therapy and individual therapy. Outpatient care is provided to patients who have demonstrated significant positive change in their behavior, including the ability to begin and maintain the newly acquired skills they learned at higher levels of care.

  • Drug Court

    The outpatient substance team also works with the Criminal Justice System (Drug Court) to accept referrals of clients who have been charged with an offense while under the influence of substance and indicate a desire to become substance free and engage in a healthier lifestyle. These clients are referred by the Superior Court System, with specifically cited treatment expectations and the staff care for the client while also being responsible to report on the progress of the client to the court.

  • Family Group

    Weekly, educational group led by professional clinicians for members of the community who have a family member, loved one or friend who is struggling with addiction issues. It is a highly attended - mission driven group - provided for the sole purpose of meeting the needs of loved ones who have questions, need guidance on how to help their family member, how to recognize the signs and symptoms of substance abuse, and how to cope with this disease and its unique issues. There is no charge for attending this program.
