Drug Treatment Services

We provide the best possible services to get your recovery to the Nextep.

  • 12-step fellowship
  • Intensive outpatient treatment
  • Peer support groups
  • Holistic approaches
  • Partial hospital programs
  • Group/individual counseling
  • Relapse prevention

An addict who is seeking treatment will not have to go through all of these programs. A counselor will guide you toward the right options for your addiction through an assessment in order to determine which program you would benefit from the most. Treatment involves a series of various intense phases such as an initial patient assessment, a treatment program, planning, and counseling, both during treatment and after treatment.

Some of the therapies that addiction specialists will assign are:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)
  • Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI)
  • Family Therapy
  • Experiential Therapy
Addiction treatment programs can last different amounts of time depending on the severity of the patient’s addiction and personal goals. Drug treatment is designed to assist addicts in stopping their compulsive desire to use drugs. Since drug addiction is a chronic disorder that makes addicts prone to relapse, it is not uncommon for individuals to need continuing care in order to make a full recovery. This could mean attending individual and group sessions while residing in one of our recovery residences after their initial program is complete or attending an ongoing relapse prevention program in our offices. Recovery is not easy and the journey will come with its ups and downs. This is all completely normal. With the right treatment program in place and compassionate addiction counselor by your side supporting you each step of the way, recovery is attainable.

When you’re trapped in the world of addiction, life can start to seem desperate and hopeless. At Nextep, we believe that your chances for a real, long-term recovery are increased dramatically when you have support from professionals and peers within an established community.
