Substance Use Disorders
Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is a complex disease that can affect many areas of a person’s life. In 2017, it was estimated that 20.7 million Americans needed treatment for substance use disorders; however, only 2.5 million received specialized substance use treatment.
SUD requires individualized treatments and modalities that address the symptoms and underlying causes of the disease, as well as the consequences that substance use has on different areas of a person’s life. This includes their physical and mental health, and consequences at work, home, school, or with the law.2 There are many types of therapy available to effectively treat substance use disorders.
We offer Level 1 and Level 2.1 ASAM levels of care. We have multiple outpatient groups during the day or evening as well as flexibility in scheduling individual sessions. We have a Daytime and Evening Intensive Outpatient Programs, for up to 12 hours of group and individual sessions combined per week.
Our Outpatient groups include specialized sessions for Men and Women, as well as a Women’s Trauma group. There is also Anger Management by certified anger management specialist.
Sessions are facilitated by Certified Alcohol and Drug counselors, Licensed Alcohol and Drug counselor and CADC interns, Licensed Professional Counselors, Licensed Social Workers, and Licensed Clinical Social Workers.
We understand that substance use is a chronic disorder and strive to reduce barriers to get the needed services to achieve the goal of sustained abstinence and healthy lifestyle.
If an individual is assessed to need a higher level of care than we offer, we will assist with accessing services and remain an advocate until the individual finds an appropriate placement.
As part of a multi-specialty agency, we also offer services for individuals who have co-occurring disorders. Co-occurring disorder refers to having a co-existing mental illness and substance use disorder. So, in addition to getting treatment for SUD, co-occurring needs can be scheduled with our licensed mental health providers. Our staff psychiatrist or advanced practice nurse can conduct psychiatric evaluations and provide medication management for a full range of mental health diagnoses.
Our provider specializes in the use of Trauma Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Stress reduction, Anger Management, Grief Couples Counseling and Mood regulation.
Cooperative Care Partnership also provides Parent-Child Interaction Therapy. Parent-Child Interaction Therapy is an intervention developed by Sheila Eyberg to treat children between ages 2 and 7 with disruptive behavior problems. Children and their caregivers are seen together in PCIT. Parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT) is an evidence-based behavior parent training treatment for young children with emotional and behavioral disorders that places emphasis on improving the quality of the parent-child relationship and changing parent-child interaction patterns.
Medications for Opiate Use Disorders
Cooperative Care Partnership has been treating opiate use disorders with the use of medications such as Suboxone and Vivitrol. MOUD would include a complete medical and psychosocial assessment. Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) involves a combination of a medications that targets the brain, and psychosocial interventions (e.g., counseling, skills development) aimed at improving treatment outcomes. Research shows that medications and therapy together may be more successful than either treatment method alone.
Vivitrol for Alcohol Use Disorders
Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is currently the third leading preventable cause of death in the U.S. According to the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 14.5 million Americans aged 12 and older had an alcohol use disorder, including nine million men and 5.5 million women.
Vivitrol is one of three medications approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for alcohol use disorder. Vivitrol is an injectable form of extended-release naltrexone administered intramuscularly into the buttocks by a healthcare provider once a month in a clinical setting. Vivitrol is a non-addictive and non-narcotic prescription medication with a low risk of misuse and dependence. Vivitrol is used as part of a comprehensive treatment program to help reduce the risk of relapse and maintain abstinence while in recovery.
