Your Treatment Plan

  1. Your treatment plan will be developed with you to address your concerns.
  2. If you have addiction, we will identify WHY you continue to use and then we will treat that. We will treat the driving force of your addiction like anxiety, depression, racing thoughts, insomnia, worry, stress, self-esteem, co-dependency, grief, relationship issues, etc.
  3. If you only have mental health concerns we will help you with this as well. Our team is great at working with impulsivity, anger, psychosis, ADHD, and personality disorders to name a few.
  4. We will conduct family or couples counseling if needed.
  5. We also put a lot of emphasis on how you can build a life worth living for. So, we will help you piece back your life so you will be successful post treatment. For some this might be helping them get their id/license, social security card, birth certificate, complete taxes, open a bank account, get a job, find housing, etc.

Everyone has different needs, but we will identify your specific needs and help you develop a plan to help you get your needs met.
