Alcohol and Drug Treatment
Addiction is a complex disease that negatively affects every aspect of a person's life. Substance use disorders and addiction can lead to relationship problems, anxiety and depression, anger, violence, health and behavioral problems and job complications.
The nature of the addiction process can be stopped and relapses prevented through commitment to proper treatment, sobriety or abstinence, and recovery, which is a lifelong endeavor. At Oakland Family Services, we offer a variety of outpatient treatment services for substance use disorders - group therapy, individual therapy, psychiatric evaluations, family sessions, educational groups and drug screening. Clients are educated on alcohol and substance use disorders, cycle of addiction, relapse, coping skills and strategies.
Our professional therapists also can help persons affected by alcohol and drug abuse who do not themselves use substances, such as family members or friends. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call a customer service representative at the location nearest you or confidentially email your contact information to us and a customer service representative will contact you within one business day.
Adolescent Substance Use Disorders
Oakland Family Services strives to provide quality, individualized treatment to adolescents and their families to help them achieve and maintain abstinence.
Teen users are more likely to be experiencing co-occurring mental health issues. Their use of alcohol and drugs is often opportunistic and involves binging. They also have more trouble projecting the consequences of their use into the future. It is critical that treatment services are appropriate for the adolescent’s cognitive, physiological and emotional stages of development. At Oakland Family Services, we follow the Best Practice Guidelines as established by the Alliance for Children and Families. These guidelines include individual and group therapy modalities, focus on family therapy and family dynamics, cognitive behavioral therapy, and Twelve Step and Motivational Interviewing. Oakland Family Services has adopted other key elements to adolescent treatment services by the National Institute on Drug Abuse “Drug Strategies” and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMSHA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
These elements include assessment and treatment matching, a comprehensive/integrated approach, family involvement in treatment, developmentally appropriate treatment, efforts to engage and retain teens in treatment, qualified staff, gender and cultural competence, continuing care and monitoring treatment outcomes. Our services meet the needs of adolescents 12-18 years old and their families. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call a customer service representative at the location nearest you or confidentially email your contact information to us and a customer service representative will contact you within one business day.
