Substance Use Services

Our substance use services begin with a comprehensive substance use assessment and recommended level of care utilizing the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) standards and Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM-V) criteria. Counselors will discuss with clients the assessment and recommended level of care prior to development of an agreed upon service plan. The level of care determines the kind, amount, and frequency of services.

Below is an approximate amount of service that is provided within each level of care. Each client will have an individualized service plan prior to engaging in treatment. Counselors will review service plans with clients routinely to support overall success in meeting treatment goals and objectives.
