What Treatment Service is Best For Me?

With your input during the assessment process, a licensed counselor at CREATE will determine the appropriate substance use disorder services that are beneficial for you. Here is a brief description of the treatment services CREATE provides and what to expect while a client in each service:

Intensive Outpatient Treatment Services: With this program you will work with licensed Substance Use Disorder and Mental Health counselors to create an Individual Treatment Plan that will address your life change areas and a plan to achieve those changes. You will also participate in group and individual sessions with your assigned counselors. This service will last 3-4 months. At the end of this service you will meet with your counselor and create a Continuum of Care Plan to continue to move forward with your recovery process as you leave this service.

Groups will meet in the evenings or days, three times per week.  6:00-9:00pm or 1:00-4:00pm.  Individual sessions will be scheduled weekly.

Short-term Outpatient (OPTIONS) Treatment: This is an 8 session short-term program that helps you assess your personal consequences of substance use and to determine what behaviors must be changed to avoid future consequences. Groups and individual sessions meet over a two week period in the evenings.

Co-Occurring Services (Mental Health): These services are available with any of the treatment services described above. Services include: Psycho-Social Education Groups, Mental Health Evaluations, Individual Therapy, Family Education and Therapy, and Community Referrals. Services are scheduled with a Mental Health Practitioner.

Medicated Assisted Treatment (MAT): CREATE Partners with a MAT community clinic. MAT can be defined as the use of FDA- approved medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies to achieve meaningful recovery from substance use disorder. Through this partnership, MAT services are available to clients receiving treatment services with CREATE. Opioid and alcohol users are the most common recipients of MAT services. MAT is extremely helpful in the early stages of substance use disorder recovery, especially when you are going through detoxification symptoms. This method of treatment is designed to help stabilize you and help you actively participate your Recovery Plan.

Individual Sessions: Individualized sessions with licensed counselors are available to any client receiving treatment services. With CREATE you would work one on one with your counselor to further implement skills learned in the group sessions or to address issues that are not done in a group setting. Individual sessions may also be appropriate as a stand alone service. Session appointments are scheduled by the assigned counselor.
