Substance Use Treatment Program

CCMS recognizes the social, emotional and psychological impact of substance use. We understand that substance use can affect an individual’s the entire life, including, but not limited to, familial relationships, work performance, and community interactions. Specifically with adolescents, significant substance use may exacerbate behavioral challenges such as truancy, problems with authority, school performance and/or overall motivation.

Evidence-Based Treatment Approach

CCMS utilizes a holistic, systems treatment approach that includes individual and family education, collaboration with schools, courts and other agencies regarding an individual’s substance-related issues. Through individual and group therapy, CCMS counselors target topics including, but not limited to, drug education, relapse prevention, and life skills. Evidenced-based treatment approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing are used to facilitate the process of establishing and maintaining sobriety, and acquiring overall health.
