At this level of care, clients receive one hour-long individual counseling session per week with their licensed masters level addiction therapist. During this session, clients develop a strong therapeutic relationship with their primary therapist while identifying and treating their addiction and co-occurring mental health issues. With clients’ consent, individual therapists will update and engage appropriate family members on a regular basis. When indicated, family sessions can also be conducted onsite or over the phone as needed. Every effort is made to provide a comfortable and private environment for these sessions.
All clients will receive a full health history and physical assessment by our physician and Medical Director as well as a full psychiatric assessment by our staff psychiatrist. Our doctors are available for clients to visit as indicated for as long as the client is at this level of care. For our clients’ convenience and comfort, both of our doctors meet with our clients on-site in private rooms. Our clinic team works directly with our doctors to provide seamless continuity of care.
On Wednesdays our clients engage in an experiential outing day. The purpose of these outings is to provide the opportunity for clients to apply their newly learned therapeutic skills outside of the everyday treatment environment. Organized recreational activities can be a valuable part of treatment and can help clients find healthful, substance-free interests to replace a former focus on substance use. Organized sports, games, arts and crafts, and walks can have therapeutic benefits and allow the clients to participate in real-world events drug-free and with the support of therapists and peers.
