This treatment program level is for clients with an alcohol or drug dependency diagnosis. Generally, the client will not have had prior treatment services, will have an external support system that is conducive to or tolerant of the recovery process and will have sufficient coping strategies to abstain in a less structured program. Non-intensive adult group sessions are twice a week for a total of 20 sessions in 90 days.
Emphasis is on reducing denial of the alcohol or other drug problem, increasing positive coping skills, which will assist with abstinence after discharge, and the avoidance of another alcohol or other drug related arrest or problem. Successful participants receive a graduation certificate and celebration lunch.
