Addiction is complicated and unique to each individual. It can be caused by a combination of hereditary, mental health, environmental and social circumstances. It has far-reaching consequences in a person’s life that can lead to other disorders such as depression, anxiety or trauma and can impact the lives of friends and families. It can take many forms:

  • Alcohol Abuse
  • Gambling
  • Drug Abuse
  • Smoking

To protect the safety of clients and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, group services have been suspended but we continue to provide Mental Health and Substance Abuse Counseling Services and Psychiatry Services through TeleHealth (Phone) appointments. Find out more!

Counseling & Therapy

Proper treatment for substance abuse and addiction is key in the recovery process. Treatment may incorporate counseling, training and educational services with a variety of treatment approaches and techniques. The length of each person’s treatment is flexible and based on their need and rate of progress. North Central Health Care has developed several levels of programming to best meet the individual needs of persons in treatment. You can find more information about our certified counselors and therapists on our provider directory.

Individual Counseling

Individual counseling is an effective collaborative approach between a client and their counselor, to assist in identifying problems, exploring feelings, working through challenges, and setting goals, in order to move toward the change they desire. In the individual sessions, the client and counselor work toward promoting personal strength through interpersonal interaction.

Group Counseling

Individuals struggling with substance abuse and addiction need a support network to help them succeed. Group counseling is a unique experience for most people because counselors and group members work hard to make it a safe and confidential place to explore relationships. Through the sharing process, members develop a level of trust that makes it possible to be honest and open with each other.

Substance Abuse – Day Treatment

Some individuals need a more structured and intensive recovery program and require a significant amount of support while they are obtaining treatment. Substance Abuse Day Treatment provides a multi-disciplinary approach. Techniques and interventions aiding recovery may include group and individual therapies as well as educational services directed by a team of skilled individuals trained in multiple disciplines.

Substance Abuse – Intensive Outpatient Program

The Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program is designed for those who need more intensive substance abuse treatment services than in the Day Treatment Program.
