The Maxwell Institute offers intensive and clinic-level outpatient chemical dependency treatment and education services for adults, adolescents, and their families. All services are provided by LCSW/LMSW social workers and Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselors (CASACs).
Comprehensive evaluation services
- Treatment services for co-occurring disorders, including on-site psychiatrist and nurse
- Treatment approaches include CBT, motivational interviewing and DBT skills
- On-site self help groups
- Psycho-education groups including, but not limited to: early recovery, relapse prevention, coping skills, women's group, couples, family and individual sessions
We pride ourselves on matching treatment services to the needs of the individual. Maxwell’s treatment programs are consistent with community-based support groups and clients are encouraged to attend these self-help activities. Staff work collaboratively with patients who have a private psychiatrist or therapist.
St. Vincent's chemical dependency programs offers medication-assisted treatment to support the recovery process. In conjunction with participation in a counseling program, medications such as suboxone and naltrexone have been shown to reduce the euphoric effects of opioids such as heroin, to reduce cravings and to ease or eliminate withdrawal symptoms.
