Substance abuse programs

NEW PROGRAM in spring of 2018.

Substance Abuse Treatment (and PTSD) for Opioid Addiction using Seeking Safety as guidebook

** Intensive Rehab Program - an affordable alternative to Intensive Outpatient. Some people need a more intensive program but don't have insurance or can't afford to take time off from work to attend a program. We now have a lower cost program with evening sessions so our clients don't have to miss work to attend. Please call for more information.

Regular Programs

6 - 12 week D.A.R.T. Program (initial entry, basic alcohol program for court-ordered clients convicted of drinking and driving.)

12 - 36 week Relapse Prevention programs for individuals who have previously been in a substance abuse program.

12 - 24 week Drug Education programs (main focus is on drugs other than alcohol, but includes alcohol).

Anger Management Training (8-12 weeks) for court referred or not.

We are eclectic in our approach using and incorporating proven programs such as Minnesota Model, Hazelden's Matrix Program, Claudia Black's Seven Steps to Anger Management and Earnie Larsen's Basics of Recovery to name a few. 

When we look at addiction we do not look at the character of the person. Just as a person with heart disease or someone with cancer, as examples, cannot help that this happened to them. Once the disease of addiction starts in someone it progresses at it's own speed and is chronic in nature.

The good news is we can put it in remission as soon as the person stops using. We don't suggest that you try it on your own, get help from people who are trained to help you.

Many people ask, " what is an addiction?" We feel the best answer is: When you can no longer predict how much or how long you are going to use every time you use; and when the person who is addicted continues to use alcohol or drugs in spite of the harmful consequences to relationships, socially, body, mind, spirit, and or financially .

It does no good to blame the addict or alcoholic and try to figure out why they can't stop. They don't know why either. What they have, as the Big Book of AA states, is a phenomenon of craving. Their bodies react differently than most people when they consume drugs or alcohol.

Our goal is to educate the entire family because the whole family is wounded by addiction.
