Adult Substance Use Disorder

Serving individuals ages 18 and up, the Adult Substance Use Disorders Program provides treatment for patients struggling with a range of chemical dependency issues. The level of care and other details of your treatment plan will be determined through an initial assessment. We have both inpatient and intensive outpatient programs to meet the needs of patients dealing with drug, alcohol or opiate addiction or dual diagnosis issues. 


The Chemical Dependency/Dual Diagnosis inpatient program includes appropriate detoxification with a variety of medications, chosen on evidence-based practices and motivational interviewing to help patients dealing with alcohol or drug abuse or addiction.  24-hour intensive nursing care and physician coverage ensures that withdrawal symptoms are managed effectively, increasing treatment compliance and reducing the risk of relapse.  We also provide group and individual counseling in a rehabilitation setting to address issues of the diagnosis.  We use the 12-Step program to help with the acquisition of new skills and sustain recovery.

Intensive Outpatient

The Adult Chemical Dependency Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) meets Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. During this time, group therapy and educational sessions are conducted, focusing on relapse prevention, 12-Step orientation, and continuing improvement in areas such as relationships and communication. Additionally, there is a family education session Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. Family members are encouraged to participate in this component of the treatment program.
