After a diagnostic evaluation, our counselor will recommend a treatment based on your situation. Our goal is to equip you with the understanding and tools for a productive, satisfying lifestyle that does not include the use of alcohol or drugs.
Individualized Drug and Alcohol Addiction Counseling
In many situations, individualized counseling is the most effective treatment. We'll work with you to arrange appointments for individual sessions. Your individualized sessions will be incorporated into outpatient service.
Intervention and Education Programs
In other circumstances, we may recommend intensive intervention and education programs. We'll help you understand the physical and mental effects of alcohol and drug consumption and the disease of addiction. You'll be provided with proven strategies that will assist you in changing behaviors that have resulted in legal and social difficulties due to drug or alcohol use.
For your convenience, Saturday and evening classes are available.
Intensive Intervention & Education Programs
Some other situations require intensive education programs. If you could benefit from such a program, we'll offer you treatment based on your evaluation. The length of the program will depend on your needs, and it will include a range of tools.
Education concerning the disease of addiction
Development of lifestyle skills
Self-evaluation of use and abuse of drugs and alcohol
Saturday and evening classes are available to make it easier to fit the program into your schedule. To learn more about any of our programs or to arrange an evaluation, contact us in Sioux Falls
