Substance Abuse - Outpatient
Chautauqua Healthcare Services provides two programs -
- Substance Abuse Outpatient:
Using evidenced based practices in the assessment and treatment of substance use disorders, the aim of our substance abuse program is to assist individuals in identifying the underlying causes associated with substance use, motivating individuals towards a substance free lifestyle, and learning adaptive coping strategies that promote healthy lifestyle choices, in an effort to reduce the potential for relapse. Through individual, group, and family counselling, individuals will begin to explore the nature of substance use and the impact that substance use has had on their lives. Prior to beginning treatment, individuals will complete an individualized assessment to fully examine the extent and severity of substance use, as well as co-occurring disorders, to determine what level of care that would best benefit the individual. Based on this assessment, the individual and a therapist will collaborate in developing a treatment plan that will specifically address the needs of the individual. Our outpatient substance abuse programs are tailored to accommodate your schedule.
- Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient:
The Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Treatment is available for those consumer who may be working, living in a supportive, stable environment, able to participate in community support systems and have not progressed in the addictive process to a point where more restrictive treatment is necessary. This level of care offers a highly structured schedule of treatment consisting of two days or evenings per week for two hours session along with necessary support group participation. There is significantly less disruption of work schedules, home life and community involvement at this level of care.
We understand the need for specialized treatment approaches for adults with substance abuse problems. That's why our Outpatient Programs are specifically tailored to address the unique treatment issues of adults with substance abuse problems.
The programs are flexible because we conduct sessions during the evenings hours which allow the consumer to receive services without interfering with most job and family responsibilities.
