Drug & Alcohol

Clients seeking treatment from ChangePoint fall into two general categories. They are either mandated by the legal system or family, or they are self-motivated. Because their needs and perspectives differ, these two groups are placed in separate treatment groups.

MANDATED LEGAL SYSTEM OR FAMILY

  • You’ve gotten that DUI/DUII, and you need to act–fast.
  • You can no longer deny that your substance use is out of hand.
  • Your friends and family are hurt, worried and scared–for you, and for themselves.
  • Your life has clearly suffered by your actions under the influence.
  • You know that until you embrace sobriety, you could find yourself in the same trouble again and again.

SELF-MOTIVATED

  • You haven’t gotten a DUI/DUII — yet.
  • You wonder if your substance use is out of hand.
  • Your friends and family are concerned that you might have a problem.
  • You think your life might be better if you spent less time under the influence.
  • You know that if things get much worse, the court might send you for treatment.

We have open appointments, and we can see you today. Wouldn’t you rather see us on your own, before the law says you have to?

ChangePoint is on your side. At ChangePoint, you’ll find a safe place to reflect, grow, learn and recover.

WHAT TO EXPECT

ChangePoint places therapy clients with care, to ensure a balanced and cohesive group.  We consider the degree of drug dependency and severity of legal issues in order to place you in the most compatible group possible. Decades of experience inform our treatment strategy. We also offer specific groups for females and Latinos.

We practice Motivational Interviewing techniques. This means our goal is to help you understand your own feelings and motivations, and draw your own conclusions. Together, we’ll explore why you make the choices you do, whether those choices are serving you, what you really want out of life, and how to get it.

Experience shows that learning to practice self-reflection helps you make decisions that bring out the best in your life. 

When you graduate from our programs, our support continues with personalized after-care treatment, including mutual help meetings, relapse prevention groups, referral to private therapists and strategies for any identified problem areas.

A NOTE ABOUT TOBACCO

Quitting tobacco makes it easier to quit other substances. People in SUD recovery who use tobacco are 50% more likely to relapse and return to substance abuse. You’ll have access to optional treatment for tobacco addiction in all our programs, because we know it’s key to long-term sobriety.
