Assessments and Admissions
Patients can be seen the day of their initial contact. Referrals are accepted from employee assistance programs, private therapists, physicians, court officials, social workers, insurance companies, self-referrals, and friends or family members.
We offer an initial consultation, without further obligation, to discuss symptoms and to determine if treatment is advisable. If the need for treatment is established then a recommendation regarding the appropriate level of care will be made.
In cases where the individual is reluctant to get help, we can help family, friends or employers conduct an intervention, confronting the dependent person with the reality of his/her addiction and the need for treatment
Alcoholism and other drug dependencies are treatable diseases with physical, behavioral, psychological, social, and spiritual components which impair normal functioning. The illness affects the entire family Our treatment programs are based on the 12-step philosophies and focus on personal growth in recovery. Successful recovery is enhanced with several changes, including increased self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, improvement in family interaction, vocational productivity, the establishment and attainment of realistic goals in life and a healthy lifestyle adjustment. The main goal of NorthEast Psychiatric Services IOP is to restore the individual to a healthier, happier, more productive life, free from dependence on addictive chemicals and destructive behaviors
