An assessment or screening will determine if a person needs treatment and what program best meets that person’s needs. If a client comes to treatment at Anuvia, treatment involves a combination of client and group counseling. Also, certain levels of treatment involve family education and counseling. The focus of treatment is to help the client to increase understanding of substance abuse and dependence, to have the correct information to assess his or her own experience with alcohol and/or other substances, to practice abstinence, to explore 12-Step recovery and to build support for ongoing recovery. Along with group, counselors provide individual counseling, follow –up with referring agencies and referral for other services needed.
