SUBSTANCE USE AND ADDICTION TREATMENT
Upper Bay Counseling & Support Services, Inc. now offers treatment for substance use and addiction. If you think you have a problem with alcohol or drug use, please contact us. We provide comprehensive substance use assessments through our intake/admissions department.
During the admission process, you will have a face to face collaborative assessment completed by a licensed behavioral health clinician. The clinician will ask you questions and gather information during the interview to determine if you have a problem with alcohol or drug use and how serious it is. Treatment recommendations and referrals for you are based on this assessment, as well as your diagnosis, and a plan to meet your goals.
Upper Bay provides various treatment programs that can help with substance use and addiction. These include:
- Individual substance use counseling
- Weekly out-patient group counseling
- Intensive Out-Patient Programming three hours a day, three days a week.
Your counseling will be provided by licensed or certified staff. At the start of your treatment, your substance use counselor will work with you individually to identify treatment goals and to make a plan of action for your recovery. Your goals as well as your treatment are centered on your strengths, needs, and preferences. Your participation in treatment at Upper Bay is voluntary, and may be discontinued at any time.
At the time of your assessment, the clinician will also screen for co-occurring disorders. This will determine if you have both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder. If so, you can participate in treatment here for co-occurring disorders, which may include a psychiatric medication evaluation based on your needs and treatment goals. Also Upper Bay has many therapists who are skilled at providing treatment to meet the specific needs of individuals with co-occurring disorders.
Coordination of Treatment
At your request, our staff will coordinate care with other services and providers who may be involved in your care, such as your Primary Care Physician, Medication Assisted Treatment provider (Suboxone, Methadone), probation officer, family member, or others that you give permission to include in the treatment process.
Discharge planning takes place early in your treatment in order to identify what you would like to achieve prior to completing treatment. In many cases the level of treatment frequency is reduced over time while ensuring that anyone who graduates from treatment has the needed recovery tools to maintain success. Your discharge plan will be determined with respect to your needs and preferences.
