Addiction Treatment & Intervention Services (ATIS)

The Addiction Treatment and Intervention Services (ATIS) program has been specializing in Substance Use Treatment over 35 years

We offer several different levels of care, each tailored to your individual needs and personal circumstances. Determining the most appropriate level of care for your situation is part of the initial assessment process; completed collaboratively with you. Here is some information on the services we offer on site:

The Non-Acute Partial hospitalization program includes group therapy 5 days per week as well as twice-weekly individual sessions. Individuals are usually in this level of care for about 4-6 weeks, or once they are more stable in regards to their sobriety. Clients participate in their treatment planning to set goals, as well as in their treatment plan reviews. Once the individual successfully completes this level of care, they step down to the Intensive Outpatient Program.

The Intensive Outpatient Program includes group 3 days per week as well as biweekly individual sessions. The estimated length of time in this program is 8-10 weeks. Individuals also participate in their treatment planning and subsequent treatment plan reviews. Once the individual successfully completes this level of care, they step down to the Outpatient Program.

Individuals in the Outpatient Program receive weekly groups and/or biweekly individual sessions. Individuals are usually in this level of care for about 8-10 weeks, but can choose to stay longer for continued support. As with the other levels of care, individuals participate in their treatment planning and subsequent treatment plan reviews.

Case Management is also available in all levels of care to assist individuals with things like obtaining housing, applying for medical insurance, food bank locations, and others.

Psychiatric services are available to all clients in our substance use disorder programs to address their mental health symptoms in conjunction with the substance abuse. Individuals are able to have an initial psychiatric evaluation for medications and/or monitoring to continue medications. Further and ongoing treatment to address Substance Use and/or Mental Health issues is assessed on a case-by-case basis throughout treatment and any appropriate referrals are made.

*Vivitrol/Naltrexone Clinic is also available to any client who is interested on site and overseen by nurses and a psychiatrist. All visits occur on site at the program, as does the administration of the injection.

By recognizing substance use disorders impact people in every area of their lives as well as their physical health, ATIS helps individuals and families regain control of their lives without the use of alcohol or other drugs. Treatment meets the unique and individual needs of each individual; emphasizing each person’s motivation to make change, collaboratively measuring progress throughout the course of treatment, and ongoing care.
