Treating Psychiatric and Substance Use Disorders

Chemical Dependency Services           

         Evaluations - Counseling - Treatment - Aftercare Programs                               Intensive Outpatient Program - Alcohol & Drug Treatment
The Intensive Outpatient Program is a primary treatment program most often recommended for those who do not need medically supervised detox. Most clients have already discontinued or started decreasing the amount of alcohol or substances used and are not in need of supervised detox. At this level of care you continue to live at home allowing you to receive the care and support you need while accommodating your family and career responsibilities. 

Education & Psychotherapy
Clients participate in treatment 3 days or evenings each week and treatment includes both educational and group therapy sessions. Education involves lecture and video presentations. All education and therapy groups are limited in number to no more than 8 clients.

Individual & Family Therapy Sessions
Each client is encouraged to participate in at least one individual session weekly as well as one family session weekly.

Abstinence Based Treatment
Clients are expected to maintain abstinence from alcohol and other drugs; alcohol and drug testing is done 3 times weekly.

Length of Treatment
The length of a client's program depends primarily on his or her progress. Sometimes the length of treatment and continued care may depend on legal issues or a referral source.

Relapse Prevention Aftercare Program
After a client completes treatment we strongly recommend participation weekly for at least one year in our Relapse Prevention Aftercare Program. There is no additional cost.

About Treatment Modalities and Models

The Minnesota Model of Treatment
The Minnesota Model of treatment is an abstinence based approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. The basic model has been used since the 1950's and treatment methods and modalities have been refined and effective treatment is one that identifies and treats each client's specific and individualized needs. The Minnesota Model also recommends the use of AA and other 12 step programs as additional support for those seriously seeking a new way of life.

The Matrix Model is a style of treatment initially designed to treat clients addicted to stimulant substances like methamphetamine and cocaine. The Matrix Model has been researched extensively and has shown widespread success, not only with stimulants but with addictive substances in general. Mr. Bonvillain has been trained in the application of the Matrix Model which is described below.

The Matrix Model is: 
An integrative treatment.  It includes aspects of many different therapeutic styles and psychological orientations.
An intensive outpatient program (IOP).  It entails several hours of treatment each day, several days per week while allowing the client to still live at home.

A highly-structured program.  The entire model is thoroughly designed and engineered with planned topics and sequencing for each session and phase of treatment.

A time-limited treatment.  The model is intended to last for 16 weeks, but it can be personalized and the length of treatment may vary depending on the specific clinical needs of the client.

A proven treatment.  Multiple studies have shown benefit of the treatment based on extending recovery and client consistency. Beyond stimulants, the model is helpful for a range of substance use issues. The efficacy has been so clear that many organizations support the treatment protocol, including the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).
