Areas of Specialization

  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

  • Outpatient
    Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.

Through outpatient counseling, education, and free additional services such as HIV/AIDS health screening and prevention, this nonprofit organization emphasizes the development of a functional life, family, and career skills.

Treatment is based on the 12-Steps, and uses group and individual therapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Classes are offered on topics such as anger management, domestic violence, parenting, gang prevention, and the nature of substance abuse. According to the organization’s website, clients also learn relapse prevention skills and participate in life skills training and career planning.
