The Adult Counseling Program at CHC Addiction Services is designed to provide education, treatment and support for individuals with addiction ranging in severity from mild to severe. Since co-occurring disorders are common among those with substance use problems, CHC Addiction Services employs Master’s level clinicians who are well-equipped to teach patients effective recovery skills to improve the quality of their lives. Every participant in counseling is matched with a clinician who will tailor a treatment plan to meet the personalized needs and preferences of each individual. Sessions are targeted to help patients develop early recovery skills, build sober support, manage stress, prevent relapse and improve quality of life. Additional services, such as case management, peer support and psychiatry services, are provided to those who need them.
Check out the groups below to find one that fits your needs:
Men’s Solid Ground Group
Solid Ground is a men’s-only program, based on the evidence-based practice Seeking Safety by Lisa M. Najavits. This outpatient group meets three times per week. The goal of this group is to allow a safe space to learn coping skills, and to develop community-based support for those who have co-occurring trauma and substance use.
Change is a process, not an event. This group takes participants through the stages of change toward lasting recovery from addiction. It is based on the Transtheoretical Model. Group members explore reasons to change while building confidence in their ability to do so.
Since the disease of addiction can be progressive and relentless, an aftercare group can make the difference between another relapse or sustained recovery. Participants learn relapse prevention skills, engage in recovery support meetings of their choice and support each other while experiencing recovery together.
These groups are specifically designed for our Medication Assisted Treatment program:
MAT Orientation Group
The impact of opioid use disorder can include intolerable withdrawal symptoms, disruption to daily routines and intense cravings. Those who choose to participate in the Medication Assisted Treatment program are often eager to enjoy life free from the pain of opioid withdrawal. This group sets patients up for success by providing information about the medications used to treat opioid use disorder, the effect of opiates on the brain, how to prevent the spread of blood-borne pathogens (like Hepatitis C) and the usefulness of early recovery skills to establish sobriety.
MAT Induction Group
Prevention of overdose is one of the many benefits of medication assisted treatment. The MAT Induction group is designed to provide new participants in the MAT program with practical information about overdose prevention, medication safety, and avoiding drug interactions so that each participant is well informed about how to use MAT safely.
