Bryan Independence Center Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

They recognize that individuals suffering from substance use problems may also suffer from other mental illnesses, which requires proper assessment, diagnosis and treatment. They focus on integrated treatment of the whole person and offer programming to help people who need both substance use and mental health care. Their interdisciplinary team includes counselors, nurses, a teacher, spiritual counselor, mental health technicians, psychiatrists and mental health practitioners.

Rehab Services:

Psychotropic Medication

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient’s mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person’s mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

What does Bryan Independence Center offer?

Medically Assisted Detox

This is recommended for clients who are medically unstable and unable to attend programming. Length of stay averages from one to five days with 24-hour care. Includes daily physician visits and intense medical monitoring by nursing staff. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.

24 Hour Clinical Care

At certain points in the recovery process, it’s important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Intensive Outpatient programs are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). This program includes a three-hour per day program involving groups, lectures, individual sessions, family care and family sessions. This Intensive Outpatient program involves treatment five days per week.

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. This program includes a combination of one-two hour groups, individual sessions and family sessions. Group sessions typically will occur once per week. Individual sessions typically occur one-two times per month. Family sessions are scheduled as needed.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Clients at this level of care live at the Bryan Independence Center. With programming from 9 am-9 pm, treatment includes groups, lectures, discussions, videos, individual sessions, family sessions, family care, and recreational activities. Length of stay varies, averaging 23 days. Includes initial physician visit, then physician visits as needed.

Intervention Services

At Bryan Independence Center, they provide helpful education and coaching to families and friends about the many different intervention tools they can use to influence someone to change. There is no magic bullet, but they do help families and friends take the practical steps that can make a difference.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Each level of care consists of a well planned, individually tailored series of therapies that draw from a variety of resources, including counseling, group therapy, education, family services and medical care. Careful assessment helps determine the least restrictive, most effective level of care. When clients are transferred to different levels of care during their treatment stay, our emphasis is on continuity of care and open communication with the client and family.


Counseling is based around the 12-step model and the disease of addiction which addresses how our bodies and brains respond to addictive chemicals. Clients are taught new coping skills to prepare them for dealing with emotions, relapse-prevention and addictive behaviors. The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous has been a proven benefit to those seeking recovery from addictions, in part because of the focus on looking at the reality of one's life and determining how things could be improved if certain efforts are made. The additional benefit of 12-step programs is the support of other individuals also seeking recovery. Attendance of 12-step meetings is an important part of treatment.

Family Program

Family/Parent Support Group is a service the Bryan Independence Center offers to support families and parents of individuals experiencing substance use and addiction issues. You do not need to be involved with services at the Bryan Independence Center to attend. The group is available to all families and parents in the community free of charge. No registration is necessary. Participants may have a family member already in substance use counseling or they may have just discovered that their family member is having substance use issues.

Aftercare Support

They begin discharge planning upon admission during the assessment process and continue the discharge planning throughout care. They make every effort to involve the family to support the discharge plans. Their after care support groups meet on Mondays and Thursdays at 7 pm. These groups are free and open to any Bryan Independence Center alumni. Groups are facilitated by alumni. Alumni share their experiences of living a sober lifestyle and offer support to others who are working on sobriety. This is a great way to stay connected to treatment peers and learn from other alumni members who are successfully living a life of recovery. Bryan Independence Center Alumni Association (ICAA) is a volunteer organization of treatment graduates, their friends and family members serving in a support role for the Bryan Independence Center.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Nutrition Therapy

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.




  • Monthly Fee: $1,200.00
  • Many insurance companies do not have coverage for the full residential services. This means insurance may pay for the daily program/counseling activities but may not pay for the room and board (overnight) fees. For many of our clients, the only way to receive 24-hour care is to pay the room and board charge out of pocket.
  • Bryan Independence Center is a Nebraska provider for all levels of treatment (except detox) for adolescents. Bryan Independence Center is not a state-funded/sliding scale fee program. Therefore, no adjustment of fees can be made. Medicaid does not provide coverage for clients over 18. General assistance also does not apply.
  • Medicare A provides benefits for detox treatment. Medicare B provides benefits for short-term residential, partial care, intensive outpatient and outpatient. NOTE: Medicare B does NOT cover room and board, or medications. These are out-of-pocket expenses. While the room and board fee is set, it is difficult to estimate the cost of medications, as this varies from client to client. Supplemental plans to Medicare may provide further payment but this is not guaranteed.
  • Treatment financing available
  • Down payment is due on the date of admission. Cash, check and credit card payments are accepted. Bryan Independence Center requires a down payment for individuals seeking treatment who do not have insurance for two main reasons. First, they believe a financial investment in the care received enhances the value of care to the individual. Making a down payment shows an individuals' motivation to change. Second, it provides reimbursement for initial costs of treatment. Self-pay clients will receive a bill for remaining treatment costs.
