of treatment is a cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) based approach with
emphasis on assisting each client to recognize the status of his or her problems, to demonstrate
insight into his or her behavior, and to develop effective problem-solving and coping skills
necessary to achieving a productive, drug-free lifestyle. We implement this philosophy by
providing a home-like therapeutic environment; by providing a professionally competent
and multidisciplinary and minority-represented staff; and by encouraging the development of
relationship, life management, and societal skills that support a productive, drug-free lifestyle.
Personnel provide professionally directed evaluation assessments and treatment and recovery
services in a system of regularly scheduled sessions while following a defined set of policies,
procedures designed to achieve permanent change in an offender's substance use behavior. Our
services address the major lifestyle, attitudinal, and behavioral issues that have undermined the
offender's ability to cope with major life tasks in a healthy manner. The treatment intensity
offered at the outpatient level will vary according to the offender's individual needs determined
during the initial screening and intake assessment.
