Substance Use Disorder Treatment

Recovery is Possible

No matter where you are in your recovery journey—just starting out, starting over after years of successful recovery—Crisis & Counseling Centers has a program that will provide the right amount of support. Our agency has been providing substance use disorder treatment for more than 50 years and offers a number of pathways for individuals to seek the help and support they need on their journey to a healthier and happier life. 

Individual Therapy

We help individuals overcome addiction and lead healthier lives. We offer one-on-one therapy, DEEP (Driver Education and Evaluation Program), and a Suboxone Medication Assisted Treatment Program.

One-on-One Therapy

Individual Therapy is client driven. We take our cues from you–your treatment will be based on your goals for living healthy and we’ll work to help to identify what is needed to achieve those goals. 

Driver Education and Evaluation Program (DEEP)

Crisis & Counseling Centers is a Certified Provider of the Driver Education and Evaluation Program (DEEP). The goal of DEEP is to lessen the incidence of injury, disability and fatality that results from alcohol and other drug related motor vehicle crashes, and to reduce the risk of re-offense for OUI. 

Suboxone Medication Assisted Treatment Program (MAT)

This program is a person-centered approach focusing on medical and psychological aspects of addiction and recovery. MAT is a proven foundation for personal change and recovery that reduces the need to use opioids and prevents overdoes. Opioids are a class of drugs that include the illegal drug heroin, synthetic opioids such as fentanyl, and pain relievers available legally by prescription. Anyone who takes opioids is at risk of developing addiction. MAT has been shown to assist an individual’s recovery by improving quality of life, level of daily functioning and ability to handle stress. Medication can help stabilize brain functioning and relieves cravings and withdrawal symptoms, allowing individuals to focus on their recovery process. Most importantly, it is proven that MAT reduces opioid-based mortality.

Group Therapy

Crisis & Counseling Centers offers a variety of recovery group programs for adults in all stages of change from substance use and co-occurring disorders. Please check back, as group options may shift throughout the year to meet community needs.

Motivational Enhancement

This group offers an opportunity for individuals struggling with mixed feelings around substance use and co-occurring disorders. Members can discuss their relationship with substance use and how it may have an impact on their mental health issues in a welcoming, nonjudgmental environment. This group may be particularly helpful before accessing IOPs.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

This group is a structured treatment program primarily for people with substance use problems, but also welcome people who have co-occurring mental health concerns. The program focuses on offering support, routine and skill building to foster a strong start in recovery. An IOP group usually runs four days a week from four to eight weeks. 

Relapse Prevention Group

This group focuses on an abstinence-based lifestyle and is offered to individuals seeking more support and coping skills to lead to a successful recovery. This group may be particularly helpful to those just leaving an IOP group. 

 

Seeking Safety Group

This group is offered to women only. Seeking Safety supports women in all stages of recovery from trauma who want to learn coping skills to treat trauma and co-occurring substance abuse disorders.
