Treatment Services

Alcohol and drug abuse constitutes a series of underlying personal problems which an individual attempts to find solutions to, or escape from, through repeated destructive use of mood-altering chemicals. Through the recovery process, individuals learn new ways of coping with life and develop the personal strengths necessary to abstain from chemicals, deal effectively with others, and make the changes necessary to lead a healthy and productive life-style.

Purpose

The purpose of the treatment program is to provide professional counseling and emotional support for clients who are committed to making life changes. Treatment services include clinical assessment and referral, individual, group and family therapy. The combination and frequency of these services are tailored to meet each individual’s need and will change throughout the treatment process.
