Substance Use Treatment
Substance Use Disorder is viewed on a continuum; from mild, moderate to severe use. Our treatment providers, for those who are dealing with an alcohol and/or drug related issue, understand this and will work with you to develop a plan of action that works best for you and your family. Substance Use treatment may be a service provided alone, or if needed, can be provided in conjunction with other mental health services. Substance abuse treatment sessions are delivered individually, with family, as a couple, or in group.
