Outpatient Counseling (also known as Level I services) can be delivered in many ways, including group, individual, or family sessions. Level I services range from two hours one time per week to eight hours per week. Your counselor will help you develop a treatment plan that includes the number of sessions appropriate for you. Level I services focus on the difference between use, abuse and dependence, provide knowledge on the addiction process, and expose clients to a variety alcohol/drug related areas of concern(relationships, stress, coping, relapse prevention, and community support).
Intensive Outpatient Services
Group services are held three times per week, three hours per session. Our Intensive Outpatient program focuses on addiction, recovery, and relapse prevention planning. Many individuals are decreased from three sessions per week to one session per week (called Aftercare) once the intensive phase of treatment is successfully completed.
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
We work with local providers to allow for individuals to have treatment options that include the use of medication along with the behavioral modification to increase individual success in recovery.
Naloxone (Narcan) Distribution
We are able to provide Naloxone to active clients, individuals that use opioids, and caregivers. Naloxone is a life-saving medication that can reverse an overdose from opioids—including heroin, fentanyl, and prescription opioid medications—when given in time. We distribute the nasal spray which is easy to use and small to carry.
- Fentanyl Test Strips (FTS) are also provided in the kits we hand out. FTS are a reliable, common-sense means of providing people at risk of fentanyl exposure with more information that can
help decrease risk of overdose
Department of Transportation
We have experienced Substance Abuse Professionals (SAP) specially trained to evaluate employees who have violated a Department of Transportation (DOT) drug and alcohol program regulation and make recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.
