Clinical Services Department

Our Clinical Services Department is professionally staffed by counselors who either have their CADC or are working towards it. Most of the counseling staff attends college and are in Masters or Bachelors programs. Others already have their degree and are attending classes to enhance their skills. The Clinical Director has a Masters degree and is a Licensed Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor with many years of experience. He brings knowledge to the agency for valuable skill-building in-services and supervision. His staff is able to provide clinical skills based on client crisis intervention that result in a safe treatment environment.

The Medication-Assisted Treatment Program (MAT) offers an individually tailored and supervised maintenance by certified physicians. Methadone, taken orally, has been used to treat opiate addiction for over 30 years. It is safe, has minimal side-effects, and enables individuals to change negative behaviors and work towards increased stability. Methadone, taken daily, reduces cravings and eliminates withdrawal symptoms without producing euphoria. Patients enjoy better health, increased emotional control, and benefit more from individual and group counseling.
