Therapeutic Health Services (THS) - Eastside Branch Focus:

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.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center 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.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

When a young person struggles with an emotional problem like depression or anxiety and turns to drugs or alcohol, they may have a cooccurring disorder. The core of their Integrated Cognitive Therapies Program (ICTP) is one therapist who provides both mental health counseling and substance use therapy in each session. Specifically grounded in effective treatment models, ICTP can help young people improve focus in school, heal family relationships and achieve other personal goals.

Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT)

Methadone Maintenance Treatment or ORT (Opiate Replacement Therapy) is the use of methadone as a substitute for someone who is addicted to opioids (heroin, OxyContin, codeine, Dilaudid, Percocet and others), helping with the recovery process reducing the cravings for the opioids or used as part of the admittance process to a substance abuse treatment facility that requires complete abstinence.

Opioid Dependence Treatment

THS OST (Opiate Substitution Treatment, ASAM Level 1, OTP) treatment provides assessments and evaluations, medical exams, medication management, case management, individual and group counseling. OST is a program in which individuals diagnosed as Opiate Use Disorder - Severe receive daily doses of methadone. Using commonly accepted criteria for medical interventions, several studies have also shown that Medically Assisted Treatment is extremely cost-effective.

Buprenorphine Detox and Treatment

Similar to methadone, buprenorphine is a drug meant to help with long-term treatment for opioid addiction. Those recovering from heroin addiction or other opiate addiction may be prescribed buprenorphine (Suboxone and Subutex) to help wean the body off of opioids safely, over time. Buprenorphine helps lessen the discomfort and danger of detox and withdrawal.

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 Therapeutic Health Services (THS) - Eastside Branch offer?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) (ASAM Level II.I) focuses on intensive group counseling for persons diagnosed with a substance use disorder by exploring recovery tools and skills related to the biological, psychological, sociological and spiritual areas of the individual’s life. IOP is provided for nine hours per week over three group sessions and utilizes interactive lecture, video presentation, homework and written handouts. Each session includes the review of treatment materials as well as a therapeutic group process segment.

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare. Weekly Aftercare (ASAM Level I.0) meets weekly in therapeutic groups facilitated by a Chemical Dependency Professional offering assistance in further development, recognition and implementation of recovery tools that support lifestyle changes which help the individual to overcome personal negative issues caused or exacerbated by substance use.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Treatment begins with a thorough Substance Use Assessment. The assessment is conducted using a biopsycho-social structured data collection questionnaire administered during a clinical session. This will determine the participant’s Substance Use Disorder Diagnosis and ASAM level of care placement. On the basis of this information, appropriate referral is made either in house to one of THS’s Substance Use Disorder counselors and treatment groups or to outside providers. Their treatment programs are tailored to meet the unique needs of the individual. This includes variations in length and intensity of treatment.


12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Aftercare Support

This group (ASAM Level I.0) assists individuals who have experienced recent relapse and/or have been referred to the group by individuals who recognize the need for more intense relapse prevention skills prior to the relapse experience. It is an eight week program consisting of two groups per week covering relapse prevention and direct reinforcement of the participant’s ongoing recovery program in order to encourage personal growth and support.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

THS believes in treatment approaches that engage the whole person including the social and environmental factors impacting the individual’s life. Their approach includes a full range of integrated clinical services, linkage with additional providers, parenting, education, vocational rehabilitation, childcare, and day treatment.

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.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

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.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.

Life Skills

THS vocational staff builds collaborations with business owners and community employers to secure job opportunities for their program participants. The THS vocational curriculum assists participants with skill development in completing job applications, forms, resumes, and interviewing skills. THS Staff provide community support services and encouragement for participants who are placed in jobs. Additionally, their staff assists participants in securing public funding as they progress through THS treatment programs.

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.
