Our treatment systems assess the severity of problems related to substance use. It assesses problems in six areas: medical, employment/support, alcohol and other drug use, legal, family/social, and psychiatric.

Early treatment of acute withdrawal often includes medical detoxification, which can include doses of anxiolytics or narcotics to reduce symptoms of withdrawal. Neurofeedback therapy has shown statistically significant improvements in numerous researches conducted on alcoholic as well as mixed substance abuse population. In chronic addiction, a surrogate drug is sometimes offered as a form of replacement therapy. But our treatment approaches universal focus on the individual's ultimate choice to pursue an alternate course of action.

Our Therapists often classify patients with chemical dependencies as either interested or not interested in changing. Our treatments usually involve planning for specific ways to avoid the addictive stimulus, and therapeutic interventions intended to help a patient learn healthier ways to find satisfaction. Our Clinical Medics in recent have attempted to tailor intervention approaches to specific influences that affect addictive behavior, using therapeutic interviews in an effort to discover factors that led a person to embrace unhealthy, addictive sources of pleasure or relief from pain.
