Pretreatment Group

Pretreatment Group

Pre-Treatment groups are for adults who have had a substance use evaluation and are awaiting admission to a treatment program. Groups are facilitated by a licensed or provisionally licensed Alcohol & Drug Counselor, are open ended, and are held two times per week at no cost to the client. 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. It costs approximately $50 to provide pre-treatment services for one individual.

Each resident has their own bedroom and case managers provide each resident with new bedding upon admission. The cost to provide new sheets, mattress pad, blankets, pillow, and a bedspread is approximately $100.
