Alcohol and Substance Abuse Treatment
Care begins with a thorough assessment of the patients condition and concerns. This is followed by the development of plan of care based on the treatment needs. This plan may include individual, group and family therapy depending on specific concerns. A variety of treatment approaches may be used which include physical, emotional, and spiritual components. The length of care may range from a few days to several weeks of outpatient treatment based on individual needs.
The process includes:
- Psychiatric assessment and/or medication treatment by an addiction psychiatrist
- Family education sessions for those who have a loved one in the program
- Family counseling sessions available to help rebuild relationships
- Aftercare and ongoing support
