Substance Abuse Outpatient Services
In outpatient services, the principle objective is to keep individuals engaged in treatment while moving toward recovery and while preventing relapse. A continuum of care including treatment and support services for substance use and co-occurring disorders, when fully implemented, can result in reducing an individual’s health consequences and crimes related to substance abuse and improve productivity.
Assessment and intervention approaches emphasize an individual’s uniqueness, level of functioning, and susceptibility to addictive behavior(s) by assessing for stages of change and by collecting, integrating, and interpreting multiple measures of biological, psychological, and social functioning.
Case Management Services
In Case Management Services, a principle objective is to keep individuals engaged in treatment while moving toward recovery and while preventing relapse. Another principle objective in Case Management Services is to address an individual’s other problems concurrently with his/her substance abuse issues to increase the chances of successful treatment outcomes.
Case Management Services is available to males and females aged eighteen (18) years of age or older with a substance use or co-occurring disorder as defined by DSM-IV.
