Substance Use

Counseling & Treatment For Teens & Adults.

The Lakes Regional Community Center Substance Use program is designed to help adults and teens, by providing counseling to assess a variety of problems associated with chemical dependency. It serves those in need of substance use treatment. Services include intensive outpatient and supportive outpatient.

If you or a loved one is struggling with substance use disorder, there is help available.

Our outpatient substance use treatment program assists individuals with understanding the reasons why they turn to drugs or alcohol and teaches coping skills so that you or your family member are less likely to try to deal with emotions by drinking or using other substances.

Many times, chemical dependency is a symptom of deeper underlying issues masked by substances in order to deal with a mental health disorder. Our integrated approach combines Lakes Regional Community Center’s outstanding behavioral health team with our chemical dependency specialists. This team approach enables us to provide individualized services designed to create healing and recovery with the least disruption to family, school, or work schedules by offering day and evening group sessions.

Our group sessions allow individuals to enter the treatment cycle at any point in the 6-week cycle. Progress toward goal attainment is evaluated throughout the program to determine the transition to the next level of care.

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is designed to meet the needs of individuals who suffer from a substance use disorder and need more than weekly counseling, but don’t need residential care. The program provides monitoring several times a week in a supportive group setting. Our Intensive Out Patient (IOP) Counseling includes individual and groups for 10 hours a week for 18 sessions. This level of care is appropriate for those who have mild to moderate co-occurring mental health symptoms requiring monitoring and stabilization, those who are experiencing high stress life circumstances that make it more difficult to cope with urges and cravings to use substances, and those who have not been able to stabilize their substance use in a traditional outpatient setting. The preference for IOP is to get a Value Options authorization at intake but can be a private pay individual.

Our dedicated licensed staff provides assessments and referrals to those who are actively seeking substance use services and/or support. The Team conducts verbal screenings to gather information pertaining to severity of use and how use has impacted day to day functioning or mental health, in order to provide appropriate referrals to recovery resources and appropriate eligible services. Regardless of ability to pay, Texas residents who are seeking substance abuse services and information may qualify for services based on need.

Lakes Regional offers a supportive outpatient treatment program. Our program consist of evidence based/best practiced program, integrated with group and individual counseling experiences for men and women who share the same problem. Our purpose is helping individuals recover from Substance Use Disorders, resolve character defects, cope with conflicts, and assist clients in rebuilding their lives within the community. The program provides a safe, structured, supportive group setting that enables clients and their family members to: recognize, manage, modify, and break the destructive habits in their lives that have developed as a result of substance use. We feel that group settings allow self-disclosure which leads to self-awareness, and self-awareness leads to change. We believe that education regarding the negative effects of substance use on the body, the mind, and the family units are an essential part of sustained recovery. The common goal is to provide an opportunity for positive change and gain a solid foundation of the recovery process including acclimating clients into community support networks.
