Our Treatment Philosophy
Substance abuse treatment occurs in individual and group settings with limited case management services. Evaluation and on-going treatment with psychotherapy and/or psychiatric medications for mental health issues is available. Children exhibiting behavioral and/or emotional difficulties are referred to the child and adolescent specialists with Behavioral Health Services.
Our Professional Team
The Recovery Program for Women and Families team are clinicians with certifications in addictions who are trained to address the multifaceted needs of women, given that a majority of women abusing substances may also have a history of trauma. Team members always ensure the safety and confidentiality of every woman.
