The primary purpose of our alcohol & drug rehabilitation center programs is to help individuals who are having difficulty with alcohol and/or drug abuse and its related problems. While attending our drug rehabilitation center treatment programs, you will participate in group therapy, alcohol and drug abuse education, and life science training. Counseling is also available for individuals and family members.
The first step of treatment is the assessment. The purpose of the evaluation is to assess whether the person has a substance abuse problem. If the individual has a problem, we then determine how severe the problem is and what treatment program would benefit the client most.
The different issues that Mountain Treatment Center evaluates include:
- Drug Abuse Assessment
- DOT Evaluation
- DSS Assessment
- Family Referrals
- Self Referrals
