Sub­stance Use Recovery

The road to recov­ery from sub­stance mis­use and addic­tion 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. To ini­ti­ate sup­port, please call 8475248800 ext. 136. Please leave us a voice­mail mes­sage so a mem­ber of KYC’s staff will return your call as quick­ly as pos­si­ble. If there is a need for imme­di­ate assis­tance, please call our Recov­ery Depart­ment 2242297456. If this is an emer­gency, please call 911.

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. Our clin­i­cal pro­grams include:

  • Ear­ly Inter­ven­tion Support
  • DUI Eval­u­a­tion
  • DUI Risk Edu­ca­tion Classes

Sup­port Groups

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.
