Program Philosophy and Purpose

Our treatment philosophy is to provide individualized treatment and clinically appropriate services that will assist the individual and the family in treating all components of substance use disorder and co-occurring disorders.

Substance Use Disorder

“Substance Use Disorder is a term that the American Psychiatric Association (APA) defines as a chronic disorder with biological psychological, social and environmental factors influencing its development and maintenance.”

Most often when people hear substance use disorder they think of drugs; alcohol is also a drug.

There are many kinds of addictions but few are as damaging as substance use disorder.

Do you think you might have a problem?

If Alcohol or drugs are causing problems in your life, there is a good chance that you have a problem with alcohol or drugs.

Assessments

Court ordered to have a DUI assessment? Maybe you have a problem, maybe you don’t but finding out either way will help.

We’ll do a thorough assessment that will help get you on the right track and meet the courts requirements.

Genesis House, Inc. gives special consideration to the following high risk treatment populations:

Pregnant injection drug users

Pregnant injection drug users will be given urgent intake status and will be seen within 24 hours of the time of referral. Their medical needs will be closely evaluated during the assessment process and care will be given to assure that their medical needs are being met in conjunction with their counseling needs. Genesis House, Inc. publicizes the preference in treatment for this population in their annual report and within its facility brochure.
