Addressing Addiction

Pre-Treatment Groups

Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach offers pre-treatment groups for adult men and women who have had a substance use evaluation and are awaiting admission to a treatment program. Homeless and near homeless individuals will be prioritized. Groups are facilitated by a licensed or provisionally licensed Alcohol & Drug Counselor from Matt Talbot. The group is open ended and will be held two times per week (Tuesdays at 12:30 pm and Thursdays at 10 am).

The goal of the group is to prepare individuals for treatment, keep them motivated to enter treatment, facilitate communication with treatment facilities and ultimately increase the number of individuals who start and complete treatment. Counselors at Matt Talbot will provide weekly updates to treatment facilities and provide substance use testing as needed. This is a free service.
