Substance Abuse Outpatient Services
Outpatient services includes comprehensive clinical assessment, treatment, and family therapy for substance abuse issues, in both group and/or individual settings. Treatment utilizes evidence-based approaches, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy® (CBT), Motivational Interviewing® (MI) and Relapse Prevention to reduce substance use and mental health symptoms.
Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Services:
CommuniCare conducts a comprehensive clinical assessment to evaluate adults. SAIOP is an intensive treatment for adults who have alcohol or substance addiction disorders and/or co-occurring mental illnesses. Treatment utilizes evidence-based approaches, such as the Matrix Model®, Seeking Safety®, and DBT® and Substance Abuse Disorders (SUDS).
Groups are conducted three days a week for three hour sessions. The length of stay is individualized to the needs of the consumers. However, the average length of stay is three to four months. Once SAIOP is completed a consumer can participate in a relapse prevention group which meets for 90 minutes one time per week for 16 sessions. Consumers are encouraged to participate in outpatient counseling in conjunction with relapse prevention groups.
The Coalition for Awareness Resources and Education of Substances (C.A.R.E.S.) is a community collaborative that was established in 1990. The focus is on the issues of substance abuse and substance abuse prevention. The Coalition consists of volunteers who have a common goal: substance abuse prevention and education for our youth. This is accomplished by strengthening and enhancing parents, teachers and other caregivers in the community to help them guide children toward making positive drug-free choices.
