Our Outpatient Program provides individual and group counseling, recovery planning, and support for individuals needing treatment for substance use, mental illness, and co-occurring disorders,
Individual counseling is a collaborative process that supports the client’s progress toward mutually determined treatment goals and objectives. Counseling includes methods that are sensitive to the client’s individual characteristics and cultural and social needs. During individual sessions, counselors work with clients to establish realistic goals consistent with achieving and maintaining recovery and sound mental health, promote positive change in substance use behaviors, and help clients identify and practice strategies to maintain treatment progress, reduce high-risk behaviors, and prevent relapse.
Counselors work with clients to recognize and discourage behaviors inconsistent with progress toward treatment goals, and encourage and reinforce actions that are beneficial. Counselors utilize evidence-based and client-centered practices to support the development of basic life skills associated with substance use recovery, mental illness, and co-occurring disorders, and adapt counseling strategies to the needs of the individual.
