Help for Drug, Alcohol or Benzodiazepine Addiction

Serving individuals ages 18 and up, the Adult Substance Use Disorders Program provides treatment for patients struggling with a range of chemical dependency issues. The level of care and other details of your treatment plan will be determined through an initial assessment. We have both inpatient and intensive outpatient programs to meet the needs of patients dealing with drug, alcohol or benzodiazepine addiction or dual diagnosis issues.

Inpatient Program

The Chemical Dependency/Dual Diagnosis Inpatient Program includes appropriate detoxification with a variety of medications that are chosen on evidence-based practices, as well as cognitive behavioral therapies, to help patients dealing with alcohol or drug use or addiction. Intensive nursing care and physician coverage is provided 24 hours a day, ensuring that withdrawal symptoms are managed effectively, which in turn increases treatment compliance and reduces the risk of relapse. We also provide group counseling to address issues of the diagnosis and to help with the acquisition of new skills and sustain recovery.

Partial Hospitalization Program

The Adult Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) meets Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. PHP offers intensive treatment while allowing patients to live at home and receive treatment for their illnesses during the day. Session topics include relaxation techniques, anger management, stress management, assertiveness training and communication skills. There is an emphasis on relapse prevention, medication and illness education. PHP offers a smooth transition from inpatient care back to home. This program provides intensive, coordinated and comprehensive treatment that is generally not found in an outpatient setting.

Intensive Outpatient Program

The Adult Intensive Outpatient Program meets Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. During this time, group therapy and educational sessions are conducted, which focus on relapse prevention, 12 Step orientation and continuing improvement in areas such as relationships and communication.
