Alcohol & Drug Treatment
Our Alcohol & Drug Treatment program provides individualized services to meet the needs of people in various stages of recovery from alcohol or drug use. We provide various levels of outpatient services, intensive outpatient, and recovery support services.
An assessment is completed upon intake, followed by collaborating on realistic treatment goals and recovery plans. We offer personal care and treatment that fit your busy day-to-day schedule, with services during the day, evening and weekend.
The Initial focus is to motivate you to stop using drugs or alcohol and then helping you stay drug and alcohol free. You will focus on internal and external triggers, challenges in recovery, learn how alcohol and drugs affect the brain, how to avoid relapse, taking care of yourself, and managing day-to-day tasks. We accept people age 12-65 who have Medi-Cal or are Medi-Cal eligible.
Individual counseling sessions with a counselor will focus on your individual treatment or recovery plan. The private interactions help to implement specific objectives in your individual plan, and encourage changes within your life to reduce the use of alcohol or drugs.
Alcohol & Drug Screening
We provide alcohol and drug screening, a highly compassionate and therapeutic modality associated with improved treatment adherence, less relapse and the best chance to rebuild trust with family members, loved ones, employers and regulatory organizations.
Group counseling is very effective in working through problems by interacting with a therapist and a group of individuals with similar struggles. In a safe, confidential setting, each group member can share personal experiences with drugs or alcohol, feelings and issues and receive feedback and support from the rest of the group.
Family therapy uses the family’s strengths and resources to find ways for the person who abuses alcohol or drugs to live without substances.
A person suffering from a substance use disorder may reach a point where their drug or alcohol use may cause serious harm to themselves or the people around them, making crisis intervention necessary for stabilization. In these situations, you may be referred to 9-1-1 or the closest emergency room for immediate help.
Integrated treatment is a more comprehensive way to treat conditions that may really be an interaction of mental health and substance use disorders. Psychiatric Services are offered for clients who may benefit from the use of multiple treatments such as the combination of counseling, psychotherapy and medications. Psychiatrists provide evaluation, diagnosis, and medication support that are integrated with other SUD care, treatment and services.
Case Managers meet the clients “where they are,” making sure that basic necessities like food, shelter, utilities, transportation, and child care are met. They facilitate care between other service providers, acting as the client’s advocate. Case Managers often help to secure resources to learn the day-to-day skills necessary to live successfully in recovery within their own unique family system and community.
The behavioral self-control program teaches individuals with substance addiction how to anticipate and cope with the potential for relapse. Relapse prevention can be used as a stand-alone substance use treatment program or as an aftercare program to sustain gains achieved during initial substance use treatment.
The goals are to maintain recovery from substance abuse, to find ways to prevent relapse and to achieve a life filled with rewarding relationships and a sense of purpose. An aftercare plan includes activities, interventions, and resources to help those in recovery cope with triggers, stress, and cravings that they may face when treatment is over.
