Substance abuse, whether it’s alcohol or drugs, can trigger addiction. Unfortunately, the typical outcome for most substance abusers is enormous frustration accompanied by a broad spectrum of emotional and/or behavioral problems.
For adults, 18 years and older with minimal withdrawal symptoms, Snowden offers an Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program. During this eight-week session, patients learn about the nature of their problems and discover improved means to cope with frustration, disappointment and anger. After a comprehensive evaluation, a multidisciplinary treatment team develops a customized plan for each patient to help him/her reach healthy, positive goals. Individual counseling, group therapy and family participation are important components in the recovery process.
Snowden’s team of psychiatrists and therapists provides constant guidance throughout treatment and during follow-up. With family support, the patient’s progress should continue long after the program ends.
