This program is designed for clients who have had previous drug or alcohol treatment and are motivated to maintain their sobriety but feel that they would benefit from extra support.
This dramatically helps reduce relapse after going through addiction treatment when people are still adjusting to living a sober life back in their own environments.
Substance Abuse Education:
These educational lectures are extremely helpful to the client in deciding if they “fit” in with this population some call addicts and alcoholics.
It is also an important tool for the counselor, useful in breaking down denial. A lot of real progress happens because of these lectures.
Clients meet one-on-one with a skilled clinician to explore issues co-existing with, and contributing to substance abuse.
Clients who have mental health concerns such as depression, anger anxiety, interpersonal Conflicts, and poor self esteem will be referred to outside therapists, to treat in conjunction with specific addictions.
A lot of times it is these underlying factors that add to the cause of substance abusing behavior.
