Substance Abuse Program
Our Substance Abuse Program is a basic program, which focuses primarily on education and assessment and is appropriate for clients who have been diagnosed as substance abusers, and have not previously received a diagnosis of alcohol or other drug dependence.
- The objective of this program is to provide a knowledge base for further treatment, determine whether the client is substance abusing or dependent, and establish norms for task group participation.
- SAP participants meet one time per week for 13 to 26 weeks, or longer depending upon treatment needs and are generally required to attend a minimum of six AA/NA meetings during the course of treatment.
Traditional Outpatient Program
The Traditional Outpatient Program serves clients who have been diagnosed as drug and/or alcohol dependent (with the exception of clients whose primary drug of choice is cocaine) and is appropriate for individuals requiring an increased intensity of treatment.
- TOP participants meet for group sessions once or twice a week and are generally required to attend a minimum of two AA/NA meetings per week.
- Although the typical length of treatment is 26 weeks to satisfy MVA requirements, a specific client’s length of stay is determined by clinical assessment using ASAM Patient Placement Criteria.
