DFC specializes in providing outpatient treatment programs for clients with substance abuse issues. We pride ourselves in conducting a thorough assessment and tailoring our services to meet the client's needs. Our assessments include a clinical interview, which consists of a Bio-psychosocial assessment designed to individualize client's treatment.
Clients are regularly tested for alcohol and randomly tested for illegal drugs. Clients are also required to attend alcoholic anonymous (AA) or narcotics anonymous (NA). The length of treatment is individually determined based on client’s needs and the severity of the problem. Special arrangements can be made for drug court clients or individuals that need more intensive therapy.
This intervention consists of a clinical interview and a mental status examination conducted by Licensed Psychotherapists. Its primary goal is to identify if there is a need for a more intensive modality, like a Psychiatric Evaluation and Pharmacotherapy. Most of the time clients are experiencing daily, living problems that could be addressed through only Psychotherapy. Therapy is usually short-term, in which client a will be taught coping strategies and therefore they could avoid more expensive and unnecessary interventions such as occasional Psychiatric medications.
However, if the condition of the client would require pharmacotherapy, referrals to Licensed Psychiatrists or C.M.H.C. will be provided to compliment the psychotherapy. This program accepts court-ordered and voluntary clients where the fees for the sessions are based on a sliding fee scale and client’s income.
