**********

Adult Addictive Diseases & Substance Abuse services are provided at the state-of-the-art Center for Health and Rehabilitation, which opened in September 2005 for outpatient substance abuse treatment. This service allows the Addictive Disease Program to provide on-demand treatment services, without waiting lists or significant delays or obstacles to access.

The program adheres to guidelines of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) evidence-based Principles of Addiction Treatment and offers the Core Service Elements recommended by the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment.

The components of the treatment program are designed to address clients' physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs. The service offerings are customized for women, men, and those challenged with mental illness or HIV/AIDS and substance abuse issues. In addition to traditional therapies focusing on chemical dependency, the program includes sessions focusing on parenting, self-esteem, stress, anger management, assertiveness and work readiness. The Center for Health and Rehabilitation also serves as a hub for community-based interventions by fielding a team of experienced outreach workers and substance abuse educators, hosting 12-step, self-help support group meetings such as Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) on a daily basis.
