Substance Abuse Program
The goal of our Substance Abuse Program is to reduce the risk of harm and decrease problem behaviors that result from continued use of substances. The intent of the intervention is to take action that decreases risk factors related to substance use, abuse or dependency; enhance protective factors; and provide ongoing services, as appropriate.
The specific goal of each individual client is determined by his or her consumption pattern, the consequences of his or her use, and the setting in which the intervention is delivered. The goal of treatment for individuals diagnosed with chemical dependency is to improve social functioning through complete abstinence from alcohol and drugs.
