Treatment Options

Once an individual is assessed and evaluated to determine the need for treatment, a level of treatment is determined to best address those identified needs. Treatment agencies are organizations that provide a variety of treatment options for the incoming client. These options include both outpatient and residential approaches. 

Outpatient
Outpatient treatment of addictive disorders occurs from one to several hours per week and is appropriate for individuals who do not require a more intensive level of care.

Detoxification
Detoxification is for individuals whose withdrawal problems are severe enough to require 24-hour observation, monitoring and possible medication.

Residential Treatment
Residential treatment is for individuals who have not been successful in outpatient treatment or who as a result of an evaluation, are appropriate for a more intense, 24 hour/day treatment experience.

Transitional/Recovery Housing
Transitional housing focuses on continuing recovery from the addictive behavior through a group home/structured living arrangement.

Intensive Case Management
For many people entering treatment, case management services are provided to help resolve other problems that surround the addictive behavior. Case management services can assist with health care, psychiatric care, housing, support networks, education, vocational training, and employment.

In accordance with Federal regulation, pregnant women are afforded preference with regard to access to treatment services funded by the Council.
