Detox Services:


Medication-Assisted Treatment:

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications along with counseling and therapy to treat substance abuse. MAT is mainly used to treat opioid addictions (i.e. heroin and/or prescription drugs like OxyContin or Vicodin). Medications like buprenorphine are used in MAT to help normalize brain chemistry, block the effects of alcohol and/or opioids, relieve cravings, and stabilize body functions, making sobriety easier to maintain. All medications used are approved by the FDA, and every MAT program is tailored to the patient’s specific needs.

Buprenorphine Detox:

Similar to methadone, buprenorphine is a drug meant to help with long-term treatment for opioid addiction. CRC partners with a Suboxone licensed provider for assessing client needs, and when warranted, facilitates monitoring for prescribed medication related to medication assisted therapy for opiate addiction. In addition, CRC provides the required outpatient behavior therapy. Medication monitoring can be facilitated through videoconferencing equipment to aid clients for whom transportation would prevent participation with the Suboxone licensed provider.

Psychotropic Medication:

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient’s mind, emotions, and behaviors. The psychiatrist and Advance Practice Nurse (APN) assess client needs for psychotropic medication and, when warranted, prescribe appropriate medication and monitor the client’s response. One of the Agency’s Registered Nurses may administer the medication.

Level of Care:



Outpatient Programs (OP) are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Intervention Services:

Intervention services helps family or friends of addicts stage an intervention, which is a meeting in which loved ones share their concerns and attempt to get an addict into treatment. Professional intervention specialists can help loved ones organize, gather, and communicate with an addict. They can guide intervention participants in describing the damage the addict's behavior is causing and that outside help is necessary to address the addiction. The ideal outcome of an intervention is for the addict to go to rehab and get the help they need.

Individualized Treatment:

An individual treatment plan is developed with each client with the goal of making improvements in their identified needs. Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs.

Sober Living Homes:

Sober Living Houses (SLHs), aka sober homes or halfway houses, are safe, substance-free, supportive living facilities for those recovering from substance abuse. Ideal for those who've just been through inpatient or outpatient treatment, SLHs are supervised environments with rules that support sobriety, such as curfews, shared chores, and therapeutic meetings. Residents are also often trained on life skills and coping skills to make it easier to transition into society. SLHs also provide a strong sense of community that can lead to the kind of deep and lasting connections with other sober individuals that supports a new, healthy lifestyle.

Treatment Focus:


Dual Diagnosis:

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person's mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse:

A combined mental health and substance abuse rehab has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid rehabs 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.

Therapy Programs:


Family Therapy:

CRC staff attempt to involve family members in treatment whenever possible. Sessions for individual families are offered as well as group programs. The goals are to enhance understanding within the family, work toward problem resolution, enhance overall family functioning and improve family relationships. In addition, intervention training for families is provided.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:

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.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy:

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment designed to help people understand and ultimately affect the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. DBT is often used for individuals who struggle with self-harm behaviors, such as self-mutilation (cutting) and suicidal thoughts, urges, or attempts. It has been proven clinically effective for those who struggle with out-of-control emotions and mental health illnesses like Borderline Personality Disorder.

Eating Disorder Treatment:

Eating disorders include anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and dysfunctional eating patterns. Many psychologists and other mental health professionals consider eating disorders to be food addictions, meaning food is being used in an addictive way (similar to drug or alcohol addiction). Certain substance abuse treatment programs will have treatment for eating disorders as one of the services offered. An eating disorder may also present as a co-occuring disorder or dual diagnosis alongside drug and alcohol addiction.

Group Therapy:

The staff have developed and provide a variety of group programs for both mental health and substance abusing clients as well as family members. Using input from clients and the community, the staff members develop relevant group programs that address the needs of the consumers. The goals for the group are to enhance the individual's functioning through the interactions made available by the group process. Groups are available to treat multiple issues including sex offender treatment, anger management, offenders of domestic violence, parenting, coping skills, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, etc.

Couples Therapy:

Whether a marriage or other committed relationship, an intimate partnership is one of the most important aspects of a person's life. Drug and alcohol addiction affects both members of a couple in deep and meaningful ways, as does rehab and recovery. Couples therapy and other couples-focused treatment programs are significant parts of exploring triggers of addiction, as well as learning how to build healthy patterns to support ongoing sobriety.

Trauma Therapy:

TREM is an evidence based, facilitated group approach to healing from the effects of trauma. TREM is a fully manualized group-based intervention designed to facilitate trauma recovery among women with exposure to sexual and physical abuse. M-TREM is a fully manualized, group-based intervention designed to facilitate trauma recovery among trauma surviving men. TF-CBT is an empirically supported treatment model designed to assist children, adolescents, and their parents in the aftermath of traumatic experiences, through a components based hybrid approach that integrates trauma-sensitive interventions, cognitive-behavioral principals, as well as, aspects of attachment, developmental neurobiology, family, empowerment, and humanistic theoretical models in order to optimally address the needs of traumatized children and families in weekly individual appointments.

Individual Therapy:

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. CRC programs offer individual, face-to-face counseling, assessment, crisis and referral services to clients presenting with mental health or substance abuse disorders. Education, counseling, referrals, etc., are used when appropriate in the provision of treatment. HIV/AIDS risk reduction education and TB education and referrals for testing are provided routinely.

Life Skills:

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. Community Support is a community-based treatment service designed to foster independent living and optimal functioning for individuals who require a higher level of care. Community Support Specialists work with individuals teaching skills to improve identified deficits and practice those skills in the community.
