For almost forty years, we have helped over 36,000 patients recover from substance use disorders. Our comprehensive program equips clients with important mental, physical and emotional resources. Rather than relying on just one approach, we craft a personalized treatment program to meet the unique needs of each individual.
We utilize an evidence-based curriculum, and our detox program is overseen by experienced nurses and physicians who implement a safe, healthy detoxification plan based on each client’s drugs of choice and intoxication levels.
Clients work through this curriculum in the context of individual counseling, group counseling, and educational lectures. Upon admission, clients are paired with a counselor with whom they meet on a regular basis during the course of their treatment. Additionally, clients meet daily with a process group and group counselor to gain insights of the recovery process.
Education through daily lectures and processing groups augment the individual and group counseling. Counselors and qualified agency staff conduct classes that equip patients with essential knowledge about the disease of addiction, complicating factors to substance abuse, and important life skills and recovery techniques.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a well-validated, person-centered therapeutic approach that facilitates and engages a person’s intrinsic motivation to change behavior.
Instead of challenging a negative habitual behavior directly, the clinician encourages the patient to devise a list of problems that it causes. It seems that making patients aware of the discrepancy between ‘where they are and where they want to be’ increases the importance of change and thus helps to build self-understanding.
MI recognizes that clients approach counseling at different levels of readiness to change their behavior. The main goals of MI are to engage clients, elicit change talk, and evoke motivation to make positive changes from the client.
You can expect your counselor to facilitate these MI skills:
