Our treatment philosophy is based primarily on the disease model and integrated care model of addiction. We believe that educating clients about alcohol abuse, DUI and DWI's, as well as the abuse of other mood altering substances is an important component of treatment. Clients are encouraged to remain abstinent from the use of alcohol and all unnecessary medications. Random urinalyses & breathalyzers are conducted to ensure abstinence. ADI encourages clients to attend outside support groups. Having an outside recovery-oriented support system is crucial to recovery.
ADI recognizes the client's right to choose their treatment provider(s) and works to provide coordinated care with outside providers as needed. We realize that in some cases, clients may have co-occurring conditions such as mental health and/or medical conditions. Screening for such conditions may be done at the time of intake or during the course of treatment. If other mental health and/or medical concerns are suspected or identified, clients will be referred to pursue further assessment and treatment for those conditions. If those treatment providers exist outside of ADI, ADI will establish contact with the physician, clinic, therapist, etc. to coordinate treatment.
Treatment plans are individually designed to meet the needs of our clients and are updated regularly. Referrals to other agencies/ organizations for services such as medication management, education and vocational development are made as needed.
ADI believes that early intervention is the key to the development of a successful recovery program. Our team works closely with the criminal justice system. ADI provides alternatives to clients on parole, probation, pre-trial release, drug treatment court, and to clients with pending court court cases for alcohol/ other drug related charges, as well as custody cases and referrals from DSS and Child Protective Services.
ADI recognizes that education is the key to breaking the denial often associated with the chemically dependent individual. ADI will provide literature, audio/visual tapes and information based on the disease concept of addiction, which is presented by qualified professional counselors.
