Treatment Goals include helping individuals learn about chemical dependency as a disease that is chronic, progressive and, unless properly treated, can lead to devastating physical and mental problems as well as family, social, employment and financial difficulties. That addiction is an illness that affects not only their lives, but the lives of their families. The coping skills necessary to establish and maintain a life of recovery. Through intensive therapy, education and other treatment modalities, Center Pointe provides individualized treatment to address the emotional, physical, spiritual and psychological needs of patients with chemical dependencies.
CenterPointe has developed a specialized track within the Residential Unit treatment program to address the unique needs of addicted medical professionals and paraprofessionals, including nurses, physicians, pharmacists, dentists and paramedics. Along with the important traditional treatment components, the track addresses pertinent professional issues including licensure, state and professional board discipline, and returning to work, as well as offering specialized support group meetings for specific professions who prescribe or manage medications and may be at increased risk for abuse, dependency and diversion.
