Substance Abuse Services

    Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment - Supervised, structured programs that offer a range of outpatient services for individuals who have problems related to substance abuse, who need access to treatment to maintain their individual recovery plans but do not require the intensity of a day treatment program or 24-hour hospital care.  Services may be coordinated by a case manager and may include individual and group counseling, 12-step meetings, social and recreational activities, educational and vocational services, life skills training, primary health care, perinatal health care, a program for family members, relapse prevention services, a continuing care program and supportive services (such as child care, transportation and parenting skills development). Participants attend the program on a regularly scheduled basis at least once a month but usually more frequently depending on their individual needs.

    Residential Treatment Facilities - Community-based residential facilities that provide a temporary treatment program in a 24-hour, supervised, alcohol and drug-free supportive environment so that people who have problems related to substance abuse can achieve and/or maintain sobriety. Services may include personal recovery planning services, 12-step or other mutual support groups, alcoholism/substance abuse education, family support, recreation and social activities and assistance in obtaining vocational and social services.

    Detox Services - Programs that provide assistance and support during the withdrawal period for individuals who are physically dependent on substances. Detoxification is a medical regimen aimed at managing acute intoxication and withdrawal by systematically reducing the amount of the addictive substance in a patient’s body, providing reasonable control of active withdrawal symptoms and/or averting a life-threatening medical crisis related to the substance.

    Families/Friends of Alcoholics Support Groups - Mutual support groups whose members are the spouses/partners of people who abuse alcohol; children of all ages whose parents, guardians or other parent figures are involved in alcohol abuse; and/or friends of those individuals. The groups allow participants to share their experience, strengths and hopes to solve the problems they have in common, and to support the recovery of their loved one.

    Sober Living Homes – Residences (which may be single family dwellings, duplexes, multiplex apartment buildings or communal residential facilities) that are alcohol and other drug-free, for people who are recovering from substance abuse and need a sober environment in order to sustain an abstinent lifestyle. Residents are free to organize and participate in support group meetings or any other activity that helps them maintain sobriety, but neither the homes nor the residents provide treatment, recovery, detoxification services or other supportive services and supervision of individual recovery is not provided.
