Substance Abuse

MCHD has an established substance abuse program open to all county residents in need of substance abuse treatment.  We offer a variety of services including Outpatient Counseling, Psychiatric Services, Intervention, and DUI Services.  Funding for this program is provided in part by DHS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse.

The Outpatient Counseling program typically consists of a minimum of three months or 30 hours, of counseling unless otherwise specified (as in DUI cases).  Outpatient counseling consists of individual sessions for 1 hour every 2 – 4 weeks and group counseling once a week for 2 hours.  These sessions are used to focus on the individual’s problems usually stemming from their substance abuse and examine ways to change their attitudes and behaviors.  We concentrate on various issues such as denial, self-esteem, family, relationships, coping skills, addiction, values, consequences, and relapse prevention.  However, we encourage our participants to present their own topics or concerns for discussion.  Both the groups and the individual counseling are provided by Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors.
