- Intensive outpatient counseling (IOP)

We provide individuals affected by substance use disorders with confidential, comprehensive therapy and treatment programs.
Detoxification from heroin, alcohol, OxyContin and benzodiazepines should always be done under medical supervision. Nausea, anxiety, seizure, hallucinations and high blood pressure can result from withdrawal. We use medications with daily medical monitoring to lessen or control these symptoms.
For opioid addiction, our medication-assisted treatment uses maintenance programs of methadone or buprenorphine, and we use naltrexone (Vivitrol) to assist in the treatment by acting as a blocker. We also offer monthly injections of naltrexone to help reduce craving in alcohol use disorder.
Our addiction counselors provide individual and group counseling, crisis counseling, 12-step methadone anonymous group, HIV/AIDS group, gender-specific groups and educational group.
Referrals and Appointments
We accept referrals from Parole and Probation, Department of Social Services, Child Protective Services, employee assistance programs (EAP), and others.
