Day Treatment

Day Treatment with residential component if needed

Meth/Opiate Treatment Program 

This is a specialized program offering a variety of continuum's for adult males and females. The program offers pre-treatment support services, detoxification, day treatment, intensive outpatient treatment, outpatient services, and residential components to individuals with a methamphetamine and/or opiate dependence diagnosis. The level of programming is based on the client’s individualized needs. It also offers a follow-up continued care program to assist with ongoing treatment needs.

A basic description of each phase is outlined below:
Pre-Treatment Phase: Individuals can engage in outreach recovery support services through case management and individual and group counseling. Primary goals are to reduce fear, establish a therapeutic rapport, offer emotional support, receive education on addiction and community resources, and complete an initial assessment and treatment plan addressing immediate needs. Contingency management incentives are offered based on active participation in programming, completing treatment plan objectives in a timely manner, producing a negative drug screen, and engaging in a higher level of treatment if deemed necessary.
Phase I - Stabilization: Initial and ongoing assessment in a Clinically-Managed Residential Detox setting. The length of this phase is based on an individual’s need under the direction of medical personnel. Physician, nursing staff, emergency medical technicians, and chemical dependency counselors will comprise the clinical care team during Phase I. If a client is admitted and no longer experiences withdrawal symptoms, the client will be moved into Phase II to begin day treatment.
Phase II - Intensive Day Treatment: If deemed appropriate by counseling staff, clients may enter the program at this stage and/or may be determined appropriate for non-residential programming. This methamphetamine and/or opiate specific day treatment program consists of 20 hours of therapy per week. This phase includes individual, group, and family therapy. The Matrix Treatment Model is an evidence-based curriculum proven effective for treating methamphetamine and/or opiate addiction. This model, along with the Corrective Thinking curriculum, is used to assist clients in developing coping skills and responsible decision-making. Motivational Interviewing, Stages of Change, and Client-Driven Treatment Plans are strategies used to assist individuals in the treatment planning process. Twelve-Step sponsorship is highly encouraged in this phase of treatment. Case Management, EMT/Tech staff, and chemical dependency counselors will comprise the clinical care team during Phase II. Mental health services are available, if needed, at Behavioral Management Systems (BMS) or Sioux San Mental Health in Rapid City.
Phase III - Structured Living: After successful completion of Phase II, individuals may be referred to an Intensive Outpatient Treatment program based on the individual’s needs. This level of care offers a minimum of 9 hours and up to 15 hours of therapy per week to include individual, group, and family therapy. Residential placement is available if needed. Case Management, EMT/Tech staff, and chemical dependency counselors will comprise the clinical care team during Phase III. Individuals continue to work on primary chemical dependency issues, engage in recovery support groups, and establish social support networks conducive to recovery needs.
Phase IV - Community Placement: Residential services are available upon request. Average length of stay is approximately 90 days. This level of care offers a minimum of 5 hours of therapy per week. Transitional services support individuals in establishing independent living.
Continued Care Programming: Individuals are encouraged to participate in Continued Care Programming to enhance recovery efforts. It takes time to build a solid support system and establish working relationships conductive to recovery. Our goal is to assist individuals in achieving their goals so they can enhance their quality of life.
Note: Random Breathalyzer testing and drug screenings are conducted in all phases of treatment, and the length of stay in each phase is based on the individual's needs and treatment progress.
