Substance Use Recovery
The road to recovery from substance use disorder is different for every person. Working with both youth and adults, KYC offers both clinical behavioral health services and non-clinical support groups to provide individualized care to each person. Clients can participate in both programs or whichever fits their recovery goals and needs.

Clinical Substance Use Prevention and Recovery (SUPR)
SUPR services provide clinical treatment interventions to people struggling with a wide range of substance use problems and disorders. All services are provided by licensed, master’s level clinicians who have additional certification in alcohol and drug counseling. Clients are treated using the MATRIX approach, a comprehensive treatment model that integrates evidence-based concepts and incorporates several therapeutic techniques to address substance use behaviors.
Services may include individual, group, and/or family therapy. Clinicians will provide coordinated care with the client’s personal, medical, and community support contacts as needed.
Outpatient Programs (OP) and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are available for youth and adults. IOP groups meet three times per week, and individual and family sessions are scheduled by appointment. IOP clients should prepare for a treatment commitment of around ten hours per week, with a decreased time commitment as progress is made.
Adolescent and Young Adult SUPR Services (Ages 24 and Under)
Adolescents and their families receive education on the brain chemistry and progression of addiction, stages of change, and the specific effects substance use has on emotions, thoughts, and behaviors as the mind and body are developing. Multifaceted treatment approaches focus on the unique cognitive and developmental changes that occur during adolescence. Services include individual and group therapy, where adolescents explore topics of peer pressure and other outside influences in their lives that may expose them to substances. Clinicians will provide coordinated care with a client’s school supports, individual therapist, psychiatrist, and nurse practitioner as needed.
Adult SUPR Services (Ages 25 and Up)
Services include case management, individual, group, and family therapy. Topics covered include understanding addiction as a disease, relapse prevention, improving communication and building healthy relationships, improving self-image, building coping skills, establishing healthy routines, and connecting with local support communities.
Co-Occurring Disorder Group
This group helps clients identify and understand their own personal triggers for substance and/or alcohol use and how it is connected to a co-occurring mental health condition. This program will help clients to:
- Focus on building relapse prevention skills and increasing recovery-oriented supports.
- Learn about the physical and psychological effects of alcohol and/or illicit substance use.
- Develop and utilize non-drug/alcohol-oriented coping methods to manage mental health conditions.
- Gain knowledge about the cycle of addiction.
SMART Recovery stands for Self-Management and Recovery Training, which is a peer-led, mutual support group for people who struggle with substances and addictive behaviors. In SMART Recovery, we learn tools and techniques rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, Harm Reduction, and Motivational Interviewing to help empower individuals to manage their own recovery journeys. We do this by focusing on 4 main points: Building and Maintaining Motivation, Coping with Urges, Managing Thoughts, Feelings, and Behaviors, and Living a Balanced Life.
