Medication Management for Substance Use Disorder & Mental Health Conditions

DAPA Psychiatric and Substance Abuse Programs services are integrated, meaning our programs combine the use of multiple treatment services in order to offer real recovery solutions to people seeking to transform their overall well-being. Clients will work closely with our qualified clinicians to develop a customized treatment plan to decide which of our treatment modalities will work best for them.

Medication Management is critical for anyone who is taking medication to help manage substance use disorders and/or mental health conditions, and since treatment is dynamic and ongoing, over time, you might require less medication. Our clients will regularly meet with our clinicians to assess if they are still taking the right amount. This assessment also gives you a chance to ask questions about how you are feeling and how the medication works. The more you understand about your recovery journey and get educated about how behavioral health mixed with addiction affects you, the better chance you have of recovery.

Group Therapy

Group therapy sessions are facilitated by licensed clinicians and are the primary modality of DAPA’s treatment program. Receiving therapy in a group setting provides a variety of benefits, including:

  • Enhancing interpersonal skills and creating new ways to socialize
  • Providing a safe space for individuals to process feelings, provide support, and give and retain honest feedback.
  • Giving group members a sense of safety and value by connecting them to other clients who share similar experiences.
  • Developing and practicing more positive behaviors and coping skills to manage triggers, cravings, and the stressors of living a life free of substances.

Individual Therapy

During individual therapy, clients will have the opportunity to continue addressing root cause issues, limiting belief systems, and underlying behaviors that may have been contributing to addiction. In addition, clients learn new coping skills and process feelings that arise when putting them to use. Clients will also be able to dig deeper into their own work than the work done in group therapy. It provides a space for clients to talk about more personal matters that they may not feel comfortable talking about in a group setting. Typically, individual therapy sessions happen on a weekly basis and last for the duration of one hour.
