ABOUT BARTELS COUNSELING SERVICES, INC.
Located in the Sioux Falls, D.K., Bartels Counseling Services, Inc. provides outpatient-based treatment programs and continuing care services for adults and adolescents struggling with chemical dependency, primary psychiatric disorders, and co-occurring difficulties. Bartels also facilitates a safety program for DUI first offenders and offers counseling services for children and their families.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
To develop individualized treatment plans, clients first undergo an initial psychiatric evaluation and/or substance abuse assessment. The facility offers both intensive outpatient programs and traditional outpatient programs, and the appropriate level of treatment is determined by the psychosocial assessment. Bartel’s programming utilizes a range of evidence-based treatment approaches to help clients acquire and maintain mental stability and sobriety. The facility holds regular outpatient sessions on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., however, evening and weekend sessions may be available by appointment.
Counseling sessions are the primary approach to treatment. Through participation in group and individual counseling sessions, clients identify irrational thinking patterns that contribute to addictive behaviors and/or mental or emotional instability. The facility’s website states: “Therapy helps in creating and sustaining positive connections between individuals, peers and family members while supporting a substance-free lifestyle.” Along with issues related to chemical dependency and mental health, therapy sessions also address life management skills, spirituality, relapse prevention, stress management, and emotional development.
Bartels Counseling Services, Inc. emphasizes family involvement as an important component to recovery, and family members are encouraged to participate in counseling and educational classes. According to the facility’s website, the goal of family involvement is to create a family unit that is “healthy, strong and well developed.” Once a client a completes an outpatient program, Bartels offers a Aftercare and Recovery Program, which focuses on relapse prevention.
Accredited by the South Dakota State Department of Social Services, Bartels Counseling Services, Inc.’s programs are facilitated by a team of master’s-level counselors experienced in substance abuse, mental health, and family dynamics.
