ABOUT SACAJAWEA SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELING
Named for the guide who helped Lewis and Clark move through unfamiliar and challenging territory, Sacajawea Substance Abuse Counseling offers outpatient treatment for adults struggling with addiction. The small, private counseling center is located in Dickinson, N.D., and provides support for families as well as individuals. Detox services are not available.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
To begin the process of treatment, clients can participate in an initial online assessment, which is used to create a personal plan of therapy and recovery.
The facility’s two primary counselors approach chemical dependency and substance abuse with an emphasis on responsibility and positive choices. One counselor’s main treatment method is cognitive behavioral therapy and the other focuses on 12-step concepts. They also practice faith-based counseling and other evidence-based modalities, including rational emotive behavioral therapy, motivational enhancement therapy, and solution focused therapy. The center’s website describes the drug and alcohol addiction treatment as “low intensity.”
Alcohol and drug evaluations and Prime for Life DUI classes are also offered for clients are facing obligations in the legal system. The DUI class requires a breathalyzer test and both services include reports to be shared with the North Dakota Department of Transportation or other relevant agencies. According to a January 2016 article in the local Dickinson Press, a majority of Sacajawea Substance Abuse Counseling clients are addressing court ordered requirements.
Both members of the treatment team are licensed addiction counselors, one with more than three decades of experience.
