THE INTER-CARE APPROACH

The INTER-CARE model focuses on long-term recovery and personal growth. Our therapeutic approach provides the motivation, support, experience and tools that give our patients the ability to take on life’s daily challenges.  INTER-CARE takes pride in providing a safe, caring environment that ensures dignity and confidentiality.

Treatment at INTER-CARE is highly individualized. During admission, each patient receives a comprehensive assessment interview where a psychosocial evaluation is completed. A plan is then designed from a menu of clinical services appropriate to the respective level of care, as established by the American Society of Addiction Medicine. Diagnostic and monitoring tools, including drug testing, may be used to ensure effective and favorable treatment outcomes.

Most importantly, at the heart of all of our programs is the family. INTER-CARE offers family education, support groups and counseling to facilitate the family’s participation in the recovery process.

INTER-CARE is guided by Nicholas R. Lessa, MA, LCSW, CASAC, the facility’s Chief Executive Officer, with a staff comprised of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, credentialed addiction specialists, and physician assistants. Our multidisciplinary team has been trained in a variety of innovative treatment approaches including Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), EMDR, Twelve-Step Philosophy and Addiction Medicine.

 

EVALUATION AND ASSESSMENT SERVICES
Our specially trained clinicians provide comprehensive and confidential evaluations and assessments utilizing the latest diagnostic tools including the SASSI, the RIASI, and BADDS screening instruments. Our expert team responds quickly to DWI assessment and court-ordered requests, employee assistance professionals, DOT-related issues, and private practitioners.

MOTIVATIONAL AND EARLY INTERVENTION SERVICES

These services are coordinated around an eight-week program developed for those who do not meet criteria for a substance use disorder, but who have exhibited signs of at-risk substance use. Participants include: first-time positives on employer drug tests; employees in safety-sensitive positions; DWI referrals; and individuals who are resistant to treatment. Motivational strategies and standardized drug and alcohol assessment tools are used in therapeutic workshops to educate and increase the awareness of the personal consequences of continued usage.

INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM (IOP ) — DAY OR EVENING
This is an intensive two-step program of rehabilitation offering individual counseling, group therapy, and psycho-education, with a focus on recovery and relapse prevention.

Phase I is the most intensive, with three to six visits weekly for a period of four to six weeks. In Phase II, patients still maintain a high level of treatment intensity meeting two times per week for 12 weeks. Upon IOP program completion, the patient continues in an individualized advanced recovery program and is encouraged to join the Alumni Association.

EARLY THROUGH ADVANCED RECOVERY PROGRAMS
These programs have been developed for those patients whose presenting treatment needs indicate a less intensive program of rehabilitation. These programs meet one to three times weekly and include individual, couples or family counseling, and group therapy.

DUAL DIAGNOSIS GROUPS
This program provides an integrated treatment approach for coexisting chemical dependency and psychiatric disorders. The program and its specialized team are managed by a board-certified psychiatrist, who is involved in all assessments and treatment planning. Individual and group counseling, as well as psychopharmacological therapy provide the program’s infrastructure. The severity of the disorder will determine the frequency of visits and intensity of the program, with a maximum of four visits per week.
 
FAMILY TREATMENT SERVICES
INTER-CARE strongly encourages the family to participate in the treatment process. While a patient is proceeding with treatment, we involve other family members in a parallel process that enriches and promotes recovery for all. Through individual and couples counseling, family therapy, multi-family groups and an education series, the family begins to:
• Understand the disease of addiction and its personal impacts
• Closely examine relationships, attitudes and patterns of behavior
• Develop new and better ways to communicate
• Enjoy personal growth and changes in lifestyle
 
ONLINE ADDICTION TREATMENT
INTER-CARE provides online treatment services either exclusively or in conjunction with face-to-face sessions. For the individual unable to maintain regular face-to-face sessions, INTER-CARE provides access to secure and encrypted videoconferenced groups and individual sessions, chat, and e-mail sessions from the convenience of your own home or office. You will have access to a certified cyber facilitator trained in online therapy. Coming soon, INTER-CARE will host an online recovery community filled with recovery forums, easy access to professional support, webinars, and educational resources on recovery and relapse prevention.
