Substance Abuse Program

Substance Use Treatment services are offered to adults and youth to assist in making the behavioral, psychological, and lifestyle changes to help to learn to live a healthy life without substances.

The approach to care is strength-based and solution-focused, which increases coping skills and focuses on changed behavior, with the goal of harm reduction, developing skills and enhancing health.

Treatment services are provided by professional, culturally sensitive staff. To accommodate varying schedules, services are offered during day and evening hours.

Treatment includes assessment, group treatment, psycho-educational sessions, and case management support for individuals with substance abuse, mental health disorders and co-occurring disorders.

Treatment services are offered in Spanish and English and can be gender-specific as necessary. There are co-educational groups that focus on the integration of practical skills to address substance abuse.

Program components include:

  • Initial triage, assessment and evaluation
  • Group Treatment
  • Individual and Family Therapy
  • Family Education and Support
