The pressures and realities of adult life often trigger substance use disorders. Whether to relieve anxiety or depression brought on or exacerbated by work, school, domestic life, finances, marital issues, social problems or other life circumstances, the self-medicating powers of alcohol and drugs are undeniably effective, until a problem develops. As they progress, substance use disorders not only make the problems being self-medicated worse, they begin to impact other areas of life, health and functionality.
Our clients represent persons of all ages, races, genders and walks of life. While the reasons and circumstances that lead them to us are invariably different, they share a common desire to get their lives back on track, and need practical, effective strategies to accomplish that.
The course and type of services we may recommend are tailored to the unique needs of our clients, as determined from a comprehensive evaluation and modified as needed on an ongoing basis.
Treatment and recovery support services are provided by a multi-disciplinary team of clinicians in the areas of counseling, psychiatry and nursing, who specialize in mental health and chemical dependence. Each of our clients is matched with a primary therapist beginning with the evaluation, who serve as their main guide throughout care. Our intake staff makes every effort to link clients with a primary therapist best suited to their needs.
We do everything we can to help our clients prepare for life after treatment, and the challenges of long-term recovery. This requires addressing not only the fundamental causes of the problem, but also the addictive patterns and behaviors that are developed and honed over time. We help our clients explore the behavioral and learned aspects of their problem, and help them develop strategies to avoid their old rituals, routines and triggers.
