Treatment at US Addiction Services
US Addiction Services is a progressive provider and leader in the field of substance abuse treatment that continues to seek effective and efficient ways to treat the proliferation of alcohol and illicit drug abuse throughout the country.
We focus specifically on the ramifications of recovery for each individual, the family system, as well as long-term positive societal roles and functions.
Our treatment approach works to overcome the major underpinnings of substance abuse; such as self-worth, interpersonal boundaries, biological or physiological components, emotional health, negative thoughts and beliefs, social constructs, environmental obstacles, family history, and traumatic events. Evidence-based individual and group counseling, medication management, and supportive services are tailored to fit the unique needs of each individual while promoting healthy and sustainable recovery.

The Partial Hospitalization Program is a comprehensive, therapeutically coordinated, clinical service that provides excellent care by qualified staff. All treatment is supervised by Medical and Clinical Directors five days per week, six hours per day. Each patient’s specialized treatment team works with the individual to uniquely identify triggers and develop relapse prevention strategies. Therapy utilizes a combination of techniques intended to create a positive reintegration into a sober lifestyle by enlisting members of the community, family, support systems, fellow residents, and staff members as active participants in treatment.

Intensive Outpatient Program
The Intensive Outpatient Program operates on average 9-20 hours per week. All treatment is supervised by the Medical and Clinical Directors to ensure daily assessment of needs and progress toward treatment goals. Our Intensive Outpatient Program provides educational activities, group involvement, and the application of new behaviors to help each individual develop recovery skills, address lapses, and build a substance-free lifestyle. Patients are encouraged to participate in community-based events, self-help meetings, and other groups outside treatment to establish autonomous stabilization. We strive to motivate patients, help them succeed in reaching recovery milestones, and provide incentives for personal growth and progress.
Goals of the Intensive Outpatient Program include:
- Achieving abstinence and fostering behavioral changes that support sobriety;
- Eliminating drug-using habits and replacing them with positive routines and drug-free activities;
- Facilitating active participation in community-based support systems;
- Addressing a wide range of psychosocial problems including housing, employment, education, and community support;
- Improving problem-solving and coping skills while developing a positive family and support network; and
- Completion of aftercare plans that facilitate independent functioning outside of treatment
US Addiction Services will design and implement services in a manner that supports and strengthens family relationships and empowers family members to assume healthy roles. Individuals are encouraged to ask family members or support systems to attend therapeutic sessions to promote healthy lifestyle choices and learn to identify family triggers and other educational perspectives needed to encourage positive boundaries and support. Families and/or support systems are also encouraged to participate in educational programs as well as visit the facility. In this friendly and welcoming atmosphere, loved ones can reconnect in a supportive environment.
US Addiction Services believes that once a patient has met the optimal benefits from the continuum of care, the patient will be discharged to an appropriate referral source for continuation in the recovery process, leading to a healthier lifestyle. The US Addiction Services staff coordinates with organizations that will provide support to the recipient in the area to which they will be returning or relocating. Aftercare planning involves creating an individualized plan, developed by both clinician and person served, that specifies the activities and objectives necessary to sustain abstinence and a recovery-oriented lifestyle. Patients participate in activities and counseling that focus on preparation for the post-treatment recovery phase. All patients have the opportunity and are encouraged to attend aftercare counseling groups (both individual and family) in the community.
Discharge planning begins upon admission and recommended aftercare plans may include:
- Aftercare Programs and Appointments
- Community Resources and Counseling
- Establishment of Routines, Hobbies, and Extra Curricular Activities
- Support Systems/Peer Relationships
- Support/Community Meetings
- Sober Living and Employment
