Substance Abuse Treatment The aim of treatment for individuals with substance abuse disorders at the CCG is to provide a program to assist the addict/abuser and their family with the information, instruction and accepting environment to address life threatening substance abuse problems, and adopt a pro-social lifestyle and healthy behaviors. Employees of the CCG fully understand the problems facing the individuals who come to the CCG for assistance. The philosophy of the CCG is grounded in the belief, supported by the latest research, that the individual can recover while dealing with everyday issues of work, family, and community. The center also realizes the value of the addict's family's recovery as well. For these reasons as well as its affordability, out-patient treatment develops a fertile milieu for recovery from addiction without disrupting the family by the extended absence of the family member.
The CCG employs a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of addiction while encouraging spiritual growth and community based self help programs. Varied treatment modalities are used to accommodate individual differences and needs. Clients of the CCG are encouraged to participate in Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Al-Anon in addition to the professional services provided at the CCG. These programs offer permanent resources for continued growth and recovery. The center provides an introduction of the client to these groups and encourages regular attendance. A vital function of the center is assisting employers, and others who may be affected by the addict, in understanding the individual's problems and how they can be most effective in helping the individual recover. The CCG recognizes the chronic and disruptive nature of addiction and while there is no cure, the CCG aims to establish a basis for recovery for each individual.
