Addiction is a troubling brain disease for those who are stuck in the cycle of it and can be equally stressing for family members and friends. The problem can seem impossible to tackle, especially when there is no guidance of where to go for help. Addiction or chemical dependency is a complex brain disease and thus addiction has the same effect no matter what the drug of choice is: opiates, cocaine, marijuana, heroin, amphetamines, prescription medication, or any combination. Prolonged use of the addictive substance leads to tolerance, physical dependence, and uncontrollable craving, which leads to social, family, and health problems. Fortunately we at Alliant can help individuals dealing with this disease and can address different aspects of dependency and provide services and resources as needed.
At addiction counseling, our clients learn more about their disease and the process of recovery through individual counseling and group sessions held by state certified and licensed counselors. The addiction counselors schedule counseling sessions with their clients, builds therapeutic alliances to guide each client through the treatment experience, and provides essential resources.
Alliant counselors offer individual counseling services to support each client through their recovery process. Counselors meet regularly with clients individually to discuss personal issues and monitor treatment progress. They use individualized approaches to support our clients with meeting their recovery goals.
Alliant offers evidence-based outpatient group therapy to stabilize and enhance the recovery efforts of all program clients. Alliant clients are enrolled in Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or Non-Intensive Recovery Support Group services based on their treatment needs and level of care. Alliant counselors strive to maintain small group sizes and low client-to-counselor ratios, which encourages personal attention. Educational presentations are also used to enable clients to gain new knowledge about the disease of addiction with presentations covering topics relevant to the recovery process.
