What are Addiction Services?
Substance Use Disorders (SUD) treatment and Alcohol and Other Drug (AoD) treatment services are those combinations of interventions designed to address and provide help for people with substance abuse and dependence. Research-based therapeutic services provide the assistance one might need to move forward when suffering from addiction. At Coleman, it’s understood that each person and each addiction is different. Coleman’s licensed and caring staff understands that every individual needs his or her own path forward and a plan that reflects his or her specific challenges and goals.
Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral and Treatment (SBIRT)
SBIRT is a comprehensive, integrated, public health approach that provides opportunities for early intervention before more severe consequences occur. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the screening process assesses the severity of substance use and identifies the appropriate level of treatment. Brief intervention focuses on increasing awareness regarding substance abuse and the motivation toward behavior change. Referral to treatment provides those identified as needing more extensive treatment with access to special care.
A diagnostic assessment is performed to give Coleman a better idea as to what the client’s AoD problems are and to help gain an understanding of the client’s AoD use. Therefore, during the assessment, the psychologist will identify cues that might trigger the AoD use, screen for intention to harm self or others and determine a baseline of drug taking behaviors/levels by distinguishing the pattern and frequency of AoD use.
Through regularly scheduled counseling sessions with a trained counselor, individuals have the chance to discuss their personal journey through addiction, treatment and recovery. The focus in these sessions is always placed on moving toward sustainable recovery.
Group counseling sessions provide the opportunity for individuals struggling with addiction to come together in a safe and understanding environment. Group time allows for a deeper understanding of the illness by learning about it from many different perspectives.
Each client is assigned a case manager to help to stabilize or improve an individual's complex situation. We recognize that case management is extremely different for AoD than it is for mental illness. At Coleman, the AoD case managers are responsible for coordinating a treatment plan in conjunction with the client’s needs as well as monitoring to identify potential relapse, new treatment needs or change in the level of care.
Individuals participating in AoD Services who also have mental health concerns may be eligible for Mental Health and Dual Disorder Services, which offers a more comprehensive and integrated approach to care. Eligibility for these supplementing services is determined throughout the AoD treatment.
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
This is a whole-patient approach to the treatment of substance-use disorders. It helps relieve withdrawal symptoms by remaining engaged in ambulatory detoxification with medical supervision, counseling, education on addiction and relapse prevention services.
