Our substance abuse treatment and programs in the Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield and Petersburg, VA., areas provide therapeutic interventions with a trauma-focused lens to ground individuals in their life experiences and explore the root cause behind their use to allow room for healing and growth. With our different support level programs, we meet individuals where they are in their stage of recovery in order to provide the best level of treatment. Untreated addiction can disrupt lives, damage families and span generations.

It’s one disease with many names and faces.

  • Abuse
  • Dependency
  • Self-medication

  • Alcoholism
  • Alcohol use disorders
  • Substance use disorders

If you’ve never experienced addiction firsthand, here’s something to know: Most people struggling with addiction don’t want to be where they are. If they could quit alone, they would. Most people struggling with addiction are in survival mode, living from one drink, one smoke, one pill or one injection to the next.

Our Substance Abuse Support Levels

Our recovery center offers multiple levels of support that increase in intensity to meet the needs of each client seeking support.  Our menu of services include:

Substance Abuse Outpatient

Outpatient substance abuse treatment provides those recovering from addiction with much-needed support as they transition back into their everyday lives. It’s important to remember that relapse is most common right after an individual exits residential treatment.

The extra encouragement and treatment provided by outpatient care play an essential role in helping individuals achieve long-term sobriety and addiction recover.  Other key benefits of outpatient substance abuse treatment include:

Life skill development

Direct access to friends and family

Flexibility to work or attend school

Clinically Managed Low Intensity Residential Services

For many, entering addiction treatment is an unknown experience. You may not be sure what to expect, and you need someone who will guide you through the process. This is the function of an addiction case manager. Our case management services are provided to all clients enrolled in our substance abuse intensive outpatient programs; Case managers give assistance by connecting individuals to treatment services, assisting with application processes like Medicaid and Social Security, and advocating for individuals in various settings.

Case management plans for addiction recovery involve providing and coordinating services based on your specific needs. An effective case worker juggles several roles to ensure you’re getting the treatment you need.  These include:

  • Being your main point of contact with health and Social services systems. Your case manager works directly with you to determine the services you need and addresses your concerns. While in treatment and beyond, he or she is a valuable resource you can turn to as your needs change.
  • Assessing your situation. One of the first tasks consists of starting a therapeutic relationship with each client. He or she gets all the information about your drug, health and social history, allowing the determination of the most appropriate care for your specific situation.
  • Developing a plan for success. Using y our input, a treatment plan is created based on your strengths and struggles. The treatment plan outlines clear goals and measurable objectives to help you achieve these goals. 
  • Monitoring progress. As you receive treatment and work toward your goals and objectives, you will discuss your progress with your case manager. Together you may brainstorm modifications to your treatment plan during your individual sessions.  In addition, he or she also can help you stay motivated and engaged with treatment.
  • Referring you to appropriate resources. The vast knowledge a case manager has about the available resources for treating addiction serves as a valuable tool for your recover. A case manager can connect you with services in the drug rehab program itself as well as with resources in the community.
  • Providing ongoing support and skills training. Some case managers act as referral sources and others directly teach you important skills to help with your recovery. The type of support provided depends on the theoretical style and the type of facility that is providing the oversight.

Above all, a case manager acts as your advocate. He or she is your ally throughout the treatment and recovery process. These are the professionals you or your loved one can go to when you need to know more about the services that are available to help you battle addiction.

Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient

Our substance abuse intensive outpatient programs are treatments available for both adolescences and adults and are used to address addictions or other dependencies that do not require detoxification or round-the-clock supervision. They enable our clients to continue with their normal day-to-day lives in a way that residential treatment programs do not. Whereas residential treatment requires that clients reside on site, clients in intensive outpatient programs live at home.

Our substance abuse intensive outpatient clients often have family or work commitments that prevent them from entering full-time care. They simply can’t leave their lives behind for an extended period of time. For these reasons, ideal candidates for intensive outpatient treatment have:

  • A safe home environment.
  • Encouraging family members and friends.
  • Support in their recovery efforts.
  • Finished medical detox.

  • Responsibilities at home or work that they can’t leave behind.
  • A commitment to the requirements of the program.
  • Transitioned to a lower level of care.
  • No need for 24/7 care.

Residential Substance Abuse Program

Some people struggling with addiction do best in a residential substance abuse program. Our program offers a more intensive experience in a safe, secure environment where our clients can achieve holistic personal growth as they recover from addiction.

Safe and Secure

Holistic Treatment

Structured Recovery

  • Residential substance abuse is a step down service from detoxification. Most people need ongoing support after detoxifying, and a residential substance abuse program can provide that support. Rather than feeling like you just have to “go it alone,” you will have the resources you need immediately after finishing your detoxification.
  • Residential treatment is for clients who will benefit from a more intense and structured recovery environment. Intensive outpatient programs are a wonderful tool for addiction treatment, but we know that you or your loved one may need a more structured environment for your recovery. Our residential options provide you with a strong daily structure to help you examine and re-set your habits and thought processes.
  • 24-Hour supervision promotes safety and accountability. We understand the challenges of recovering on your own. 24-hour supervision helps to hold you accountable to your recovery goals, and it takes some of the pressure off of you. For family members who are considering residential substance abuse programming for a loved one, you can be assured that we will provide round-the-clock supervision. 
  • Our priority is holistic treatment of our clients. We don’t see you as your addiction. You are a whole person, and you deserve treatment that prioritizes your holistic health.
  • In our residential program, you will have 30 days to focus on recovery and healing. In those 30 days, you will receive services that address your physical health, mental health, and emotional health needs so that you can take the next steps on your path of recovery.
