  • Medication Management

    When individuals are struggling with the presence of a co-occurring disorder in addition to a chemical dependency problem, the implementation of psychotropic medications may be incorporated into their overall plan of care. The need for such medications, however, is always determined on a case-by-case basis. Patients who are engaged in the Addictions and Co-Occurring Disorder Program will have the opportunity to meet with either a psychiatrist or qualified physician at a minimum of once per week so that any medications that have been prescribed can be monitored for therapeutic effectiveness and any necessary changes can be made.
  • Group Therapy

    At the time that patients are admitted into the Addictions and Co-Occurring Disorder Program, they are assigned to a small group of peers, of whom are engaged in the same program. This group will meet together for therapy sessions four times per week. In addition to serving as a general process group, topics that are covered during these group sessions may include, but are not limited to:
