Alcohol and Drug ServicesThe largest program offered by Catholic Human Services is known as Alcohol and Drugs Services.¬† These outpatient services are offered in each of the agency‚Äôs major offices and in several satellite locations.
Since individuals approach the agency with different levels of alcohol and drug use, we make a diligent effort to start ‚Äúwhere they are.‚ÄĚ¬† We know that many sensitivities come into play as we delve into the issues, so we work hard to create a safe and respectful working environment.¬† Our treatment philosophy is based on the recognition that addiction is a disease and that abstinence is the best way to manage the condition.¬† We approach treatment in a holistic way, working with mind, body, and spirit as components of a healthy life.¬† A team of professional counselors and social workers, under the supervision of psychiatrists, delivers treatment for alcohol and drug abuse and addiction.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† ¬†
- Adolescent and Adult Counseling:¬† Individual outpatient counseling is offered, as is family and group therapy.
- Screening and Assessment Services: Most assessments are completed over the course of two sessions.
