Substance Use Disorder Services

Outpatient Substance Use Disorder & Co-Occurring Treatment Programs and Assessments

Substance Use Disorder Services are designed to provide group and individualized outpatient treatment to adult and adolescent males and females ages 13+ who are challenged by substance use and /or co-occurring disorders (mental illness and substance abuse). Research strongly indicates that full recovery consists of treatment for all issues concurrently. Open communication is encouraged between clients, counselors, and family members to identify issues and promote healing.  Family education days are offered in both the adult and adolescent treatment program every six weeks.
