Most services begin with an assessment of an individual’s need for substance use services, followed by a recommendation for the most appropriate level of care. Others affected by the substance use of a family member may also qualify for services through this program.

We offer substance use treatment utilizing individual and group modalities based on the Stages of Change Model: Pre-contemplation, Contemplation, Preparation, Action, Maintenance and Relapse Prevention Stages. Our treatment is sensitive to the needs of clients who have suffered co-occurring disorders.
