Substance Abuse Services

Capstone employs two individuals who can provide substance abuse services. Both providers complete substance abuse evaluations, both for clients who are self-referred or have been referred by the court. These providers also complete OWI evaluations. Substance abuse counselors at Capstone also provide extended outpatient substance abuse treatment for clients who have been either self-referred or court ordered for treatment. An individualized treatment plan will be created for each client, and follow-up appointments will be scheduled consistently throughout treatment based on each patient's specific needs. Finally, each provider will work with the client's mental health counselor (if applicable) to ensure proper care for both substance abuse and mental health diagnoses is being provided.
