- Medical assessments
- Psychiatric evaluations and psychotropic medication management
- Supportive counseling for significant others

Screening, intake, medical assessment and counselor assignment are required for all group participants. Please contact The Center for details about Medicaid, insurance coverage, out-of-network reimbursement and sliding scale payment options. Length of treatment is assessed on a case-by-case basis, but generally lasts 6-12 months, with the first three months being more intensive.
If you, or someone you know, is at least 18 years of age and would like to lead a healthier, sober life, The Center is here to help.
